1) Sand. In the studio or for around-town shooting you may want to use the sand filler because it is heavier and slightly more stable than water.
2) Water. For those shooters traveling via the airlines, the water ballast is the best option for ballast. Carry several (3-4 for most location shoots) and fill them with water upon arrival. Then dump the contents for the return flight.
3) Rocks. On location fill this bag with rocks or dirt and sling over light over the legs of your C-Stand or light stand.
One product fulfills the needs of both location and studio shooters -- just change out the bladder, using the same shell.
Because this sack has no zipper, it MUST be used with a bladder, otherwise the contents will spill out. The SafariSack II™ can be used as a ballast hung over the rungs of a light stand, attached to the end of boom, or attached around a tripod (optional/special order "SafariSack shoulder strap" is helpful in this mode). Please note that this model lacks the side compression straps of SafariSack I and cannot be used saddlebag style as a support for a camera, rather it's design is to be used saddlebag-style as a ballast draped over a light stand/C-stand or hung on the end of a boom.

Hang a SafariSack I or II™ around your tripod for additional stability with long lenses or on windy days. Fill it with sand, rocks or water. With the SafariSack II in this configuration, the $3 optional Y208 strap is a recommended accessory. (It is included with the SafariSack I, but is NOT included with SafariSack II).
