We had been searching for a while for a small, but heavy-duty bag. We even had some custom-made, at a high cost. I tried one more time to find one ready-made and found this bag which was perfect for our needs!! My client teaches classes on how to exercise outside, using items from nature and these bags get filled with rocks, and the handles hung over a stick. They need to be strong. We will be getting more, for the next class.
