Product Review: Kratus and Chalk Monster Strongman Sand Bags

Product Details
Kratus Strongmån Sandbags™are the most heavy duty 1050D Cordura construction material training bags in the market. Our kit includes 3 of our super heavy duty bags: 100-150-200 lb. ready to take your training to the next level! This kit is perfect for a home gym who wants to add to their collection or a gym that wants try out our product before committing to a big order.

Made from Reinforced 1050D Cordura Nylon with full seam reinforcement in the manufacturing process. The bag consists of two parts: Outer heavy duty cover which is essentially a cover with YKK Zipper and heavy duty Velcro coverage over the zipper and a separate heavy duty inner bag in which the sand needs to be filled. This give you two separate layers to distribute the force of the sand within the bag without mess or fuss.

Kratus loadable sand bags are provided empty and require clean dry sand to fill the inner bags and must be filled to weight using scales and are designed for their specific weights listed and not to be overfilled or filled with other products other than clean dry sand.

Quick filling guide:
  1. Place the inner bag within the outer cover
  2. Open the Velcro tab on the top of the inner bag
  3. Fill with sand to the weight listed (Do not over fill)
  4. Close the Velcro tab on the inner bag
  5. Fold the tab over twice and connect the exposed Velcro to triple seal the inner bag
  6. Zip the outer bag close
  7. Affix the Velcro tab over the zipper


Product Review:
Kratus and Chalk Monster Sandbags are currently available in 3 sizes, with max fill capacities of 100LB, 150LB, 200LB* Each Sandbag has a built-in filler bag with an additional zipper and hook-and-loop closure—ensuring filler material stays fully contained as you work through your regimen.  Because Sandbags can be emptied and then re-filled at another gym, field, park, etc., they function as uniquely portable Strongman training tools for athletes of any experience level.

Sandbags deliver a versatile, go-anywhere alternative to heavy balls and stones. They feature the same 1050D Cordura construction and reinforced, double-stitched seams as some of the other well known brands, in a new compact, customization form. These sandbags are heavy duty and able to withstand drops, but they are not designed to be slammed.

Purchased this sandbag after having issues using a 150lb DBall for while. Issues with the rubber ball are once you start sweating you have to cover it with chalk for continued use. Also shape does not hold.  After switching to the sandbag I have not had issues with either of those things. When sweating you can still have grip on the bag and holds its shape.
At first I used 150 lb bag and only fill it up with 100 lb of sand. I would probably advise against it doing that. Sure it gives u the ability to get stronger and add more weight down the road. But since there is so much "loose skin" per say Is hard to get a good grip on it when its of the ground. Nothing against the bag or material since it built to last if you are using it for the first time.  My suggestion is to purchase the exact bag for the size you want.

Lunges, over-the-shoulders, carries, squats... this will make a challenge out of any movement. I have it filled with about 140# (there is some room to spare in the bag so it allows a little more shifting of the sand when you move it). I have a barbell and a few weights, but sandbags have been a life-saver for me. You can drop them without cracking the concrete or waking the kids, and they are a lot cheaper than plates, barbells, and dumbbells. I have some canvas duffel bags filled with either rubber mulch nuggets or wood fuel pellets with weights going from 40# to 80#, but I wanted something that was specifically designed to hold lots of weight. I am very pleased with how easy this sandbag was to fill and how great a workout implement it is.

Aside from the barbell, this is the best piece of training equipment you can own, especially if you own multiple weight ranges. Squats, deadlifts, carrys, throws, cleans, presses, jerks, lunges, hill runs, the list goes on and on. HEAVY sandbag carries will change you in many ways, imo its the most grueling exercise you can do. Buy at least two different weight capacities. You wont regret it.
