Item Description
Ask & Answer
Anyone with an outdoor shelter knows how valuable products like this Caravan Set of Four Premium Canopy Weight Bags can be. An afternoon spent outside can hold plenty of surprises for the unprepared, but for those who have the experience and who do a little preparation, even the unlikeliest of events is no problem at all.

Providing a stable, secure base for your outdoor shelter is critical. This set of four weight bags is designed to do exactly that. Each bag attaches quickly and easily to one of the canopy's legs using the included Velcro attachment. Each one also holds up to 20 lbs. of rocks, sand, or dirt to help really anchor the structure in place without worrying about tie-downs or stakes. These bags can be used on any surface because, like many of the canopies themselves, they're reinforced with professional-grade 500 denier polyester fabric to provide years of strength and durability in all sorts of conditions.

There's pretty much nothing worse than having your outdoor shelter slide over a few feet or even tip over when a strong wind kicks up. And if it's never happened to you, chances are you just haven't spent enough afternoons outdoors. Wind and weather will happen, eventually, to almost everyone who likes to spend the nicer months outside. One really easy, really cost-effective ways to stay prepared is to outfit your favorite shelter with this Caravan Set of Four Premium Canopy Weight Bags.

Do these bags have a tie or zipper to keep the sand in?
1 Answers
The weight bags do not employ ties or zippers. You fill the bags with sand or gravel to within an inch of the top. You would then fold the top down and it will Velcro itself closed.

Mine came with no directions on how to fill and seal and wrap. Could you help me?

You fill the bags with sand or gravel to within an inch of the top. You would then fold the top down and it will Velcro itself closed. You then set the bag down next to the leg with one section on either side of the leg and wind the Velcro strap around the bags.

Perfect!
These weight bags are perfect. The tent is regularly set up at a farmers market that seems to exist in a wind tunnel. These weight bags are easy to fill (ours are filled with small rocks), set up, and carry. Our market requires 25lbs of weight per leg - with the river rocks we used to fill our bags, we just about filled all four bags with 120lbs of rock total. Perfect!

Easier than Staking the Tent Out
The bags work well in adding weight to the legs to prevent it from blowing away.
ProsEasy to fill with sand. Provide adequate weight on each leg to prevent the tent from blowing away.
ConsAttachment system could use two velcro straps instead of a single. Also difficult to use with the side curtains.

Easy on and Easy Off
First time I used them it was pretty breezy, and the 4 of them kept the tent settled nicely
ProsVery easy to take on and off the legs, and they appear to be very well made.
ConsIt would be nice if the pockets for the sand were lined with something, or had a bottle type container with a cap. You have to just fill the empty space with loose sand, and while it Velcro closes quite well, there is going to be some dust and leakage.

Love the Weight Bags
These are perfect weight bags for our outdoor canopy . We have no problems with the canopy lifting when the wind is blowing, so much better than the cement blocks we were using. Easy to clean and store in the winter. Would definitely recommend this item. Thank you

Great Weight Bags
These bags fill easily and the velcro on the top is strong and keeps the bag shut. The weights (which I filled with $2 of small pebbles from Home Depot) kept my tent from moving in high winds.
ProsEasy to fill Easy to move (two conveniently placed handles) Strong Velcro keeps the bags shut
ConsThese weights make it harder to keep the side walls of your tent fastened. In the highest winds, I tucked the sidewall into the weight to secure it better.

Need your own sand.
I haven't actually used the leg weights yet because we're blessed with beautiful weather so much in our area. But I'm sure they'll do their job when the time comes. You do need to supply your own sand or other filler to actually make them heavy; they arrive as empty bags designed to wrap the legs of the canopy.

Ez Weights
Theses weights are attractive, compact, and east to use. The are not a trip hazard.
ProsGreat straps for handling and connecting to legs
ConsFilled weight may be insufficient to prevent flight in our high wind area when using the sidewalls. So I supplement by adding PVC torpedo tubes hung from each corner.

Weight bags for the EZ UP
ehhh... that is supposed to be the sound you make when you are kind of ambivalent about a product. With sand these are not going to put enough weight on a leg to keep the tent safely on the ground in even a mild breeze. We filled PVC pipe with concrete, put a cap on it and inserted those into each of the pockets of the weight bags. That created a weight of about 30 lbs per leg. but you can zip tie those to a leg without the weight bags. Bags just make it easier and neater.

Weight Bags for Tents
The bags are well made and good quality, the problem is the sand stays in place with one velcro strap with no liner bag to tie off. It would also be nice if it had a tie ring on top.
Prosgood quality

Use of Canopy Premium Weight Bags
I was grateful these were on sale and just a little disappointed they only held 20 pounds of sand apiece, but they worked well, had no leaks and with the help of four more bags, managed to hold my EZ up in place in 20 to 30 mile gusts and a horrible rain storm. Good product! Make bigger ones! I can carry 40 pounds!
ProsSturdy! I liked the heavy duty Velcro used to wrap around the legs of my EZ Up. They kept the sand dry during a rain storm, which was a plus when I went to load up.
ConsWish they made some that held up to 40 pounds instead of 20. Had to use two sets.

Canopy Premium Weight Bags - Set of Four
The weight bags were shipped with my canopy and I was pleasantly surprised with the speed with which I received everything. I thank you for an amazingly swift response to my order. I could not have asked for better service.
ProsThey wrap around the legs with enough room for sand and a long enough piece of velcro to keep them fastened when full

Just alright
I was expecting to be able to close the top of the compartment that holds whatever weight you use to anchor the canopy; sand, water, etc., but that is not the case. We ended up putting water bottles in the sleeves.
Prosstraps easily with velcro to the legs of any canopy frame. Decent for the price.
Consthe compartment for the chosen weight does not close.

Not my first choice
I didn't have a good experience with the quality of this item. The ordering experience was great, no problems. I love the customer service. But this particular product did not work well with my canopy.
ProsI like the concept but not the execution.
ConsAll four weight bags ripped the first time I used them on my canopy. I set it up on concrete, and all four bags developed rips in the bottom. They were awkward to put on the tent legs, and it was difficult to zip the walls around the bags. Plus they looked unattractive. I had to switch to universal plates. I did not return them, because I am trying to find a use for them as a supplemental weighting option on grass.
