The SkimmerSack Beanbag
Additional Key Features:
Here are some basic fill guidelines:
Greg's tips for using the NatureScapes SkimmerSack:
"I personally developed the SkimmerSack for use with the Skimmer II when shooting out of the car with a big lens and I have found it to be the best solution by far. Gone are the days of a permanently mounted window mount or overly large bulky beanbags that cradle the lens too much and restrict your movement." -Greg Downing

Worked great last year on two week safari in Kenya. Fell apart this year in India. The rubberized material deteriorated extensively. It was stored in my closet with camera gear so doubt dry rot.
Advantages: Worked well once.
Disadvantages: Not durable

Great product, works well, light in weight, easy to move around - would recommend it one and all.
Advantages: Light, well made.

This is the second SkimmerSack that I've purchased. I bought this one to reside in our second vehicle, which will mean I don't have to shift the bean bag from one vehicle to the other (and remembering to do so). It's a great bag in all respects, and rock solid when shooting from a vehicle.
Advantages: --solid platform for even the longest lens
--conforms to both the window frame and camera lens
Disadvantages: Takes several pounds of beans to fill it up...more than I'd ever guessed.

Disadvantages: Heavy, when filled enough to utilize top as a platform. Not as handy as I had hoped.

Initially I was disappointed in the product as it looked like cheap materials had been used for a bean bag costing $70.00 with no filling. However, I was surprised when I filled it with roughly 15 pounds of long grain white rice.
Advantages: It is very stable saddled over my toyota tacoma window and I have been able to take wildlife photos that would not have been possible without it. It is also very fast to set up for wildlife when you see that perfect shot.
Disadvantages: I have found no disadvantages to owning this product.
