Sand Bags

I searched the forum but couldnt get exactly what i was lookin for. Im training for a agility test for a fire depart about 3 months away. Im looking to strap 150lb of sandbags together. But im thinking when i drop them they might break open and ill lose some weight. Is there any kind of bag i could put the 3 in that is strong enough lol? If not any other suggestions to get the job done would be great

Re: Sand Bags

150lbs of sand should fit just fine in an Army dufflebag. Why keep the sand in the 50lb bags? If you put it in smaller bags, the weight will form much better and be less awkward to lift. You'll also be able to increase or decrease the weight in the large bag easier.
