hey guys - just wondering how / what everyone is using for sand bags

i have a sand bag from home depot, wrapped in 2 contractor bags, placed in an army-navy duffel bag
....has anyone used the K 2 body bag, or used chains from a junk yard for a no spill sand bag, or any other style of sand bags? looking forward :-)

thanks in advance,

I went with the duct tape wrapped ziplock bags idea (3l bags for 5kg, 1l bag for 1.25kg). Works very well for me - no spill at all, adjustable weight, and flexibility in choosing outer bag ("traditional sandbag", backpack, etc.) make the tedious construction work (spent about 2 hours making 75kg in total) worthwile.

Christian,
For a smaller sandbag, to use for catch and release stuff, try using the canvas coin bags that you get from banks. I have 2 and they work great.
