I just started using Ironmind's Sandbags for the WOD. The quality of the outerbag is excellent and easy to open and close. It came with 8 inner bags and extras only cost $1.50. The inner bags are very strong, but do leak sand dust - no big deal in the garage.

I created 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 50 pound bags. I just throw them in the inner bag to get the desired weight.

It also works well for the wall ball shots - just a little more difficult than a medicine ball.

The book that came with the set did not have a lot of useful information for someone with average weightlifting experience. Most of it is self evident. He fails to go into some details that would be helpful, like grip specifics when cleaning.

John, thanks for posting a review, I was wondering about the bag and especially about the book.

For the clean I stand with the bad between my feet and I grip it one hand on each side, a couple inches from the floor. I wriggle the bag a bit so as to separate a handful of sand from the mass and ball it up in my hand a little. This is a little rough on the fingertips when cleaning it but very easy for pressing. I have no idea if there is a better way. How do you hold the sandbag?
