Despite its many years of successful use by outdoor and wildlife photographers, the beanbag is a highly under-rated stabilization tool. Gura Gear aims to change that opinion with its new Sabi Sack. The Sabi is a compact stable support system designed by photographers simply trying to hold still while they shoot. The clever double-pillow design lets you adapt to multiple shooting situations without the bulk of traditional beanbags. When you’re shooting from the car, rocks, tree stumps, or even simply on the ground, the Sabi can hold your gear steady even when tripod use is not possible or advisable.
The two sizes of the Sabi are made in the USA of heavy-duty PU-coated Cordura fabrics and reinforced with double stitching. Its construction features a concealed zipper with a leak-stop tab to keep the fill where it belongs, in the bag.
