 NatureScapes.Net SkimmerSack Mini Bean Bag II   $65.95 

NatureScapes' popular innovation - The original SkimmerSack Beanbag now has a mini version!

The SkimmerSack Mini works the same as the SkimmerSack II and just like it’s larger brother, transforms into many different configurations for endless shooting possibilities. Read about the key features and see the detailed images for suggested uses.

Construction and Key Features:

The SkimmerSack mini is a scaled down version of the most durable and the most flexible beanbag on the market.

Here is why:
• Unique transformable design - a multitude of uses and configurations. See images for suggested uses and listing for SkimmerSack II
• First ever "U" shaped bag with unique round-top design for use with any lens and camera combination from wide angle up to a 500/4.
• Continuous non-skid Toughtek fabric inside of the legs for non slip grip on car doors
To see the many uses and configurations for the SkimmerSack Mini click on detailed images and also see the listing for the SkimmerSack II for additional uses. For additional features and Greg's tips see the Specifications tab below.
Filled Dimensions: 17 tall X 10 X 15 cm (6.5 tall X 4 X 6 inches)
Empty Weight: 88 g (3.1 oz.)
Poly filled weight (Includes sack weight): 1.9 kg (4 lbs. 4 oz.)
Buckwheat hulls filled weight (Includes sack weight): .6 kg (1 lbs. 4 oz.)

Additional Key Features:
• Highly contoured design allows less fill than other bags; weighs under 5 pounds when full using whole sunflower seeds
• Large zippered opening with protective flap for easy secure filling
• All seams are double stitched for extra strength; stress areas stitched at least 5 times*
• Buckle straps at each end of the "legs" for tying the bag down to door handles or safari roof rack.
• Sewn in handles on each side which may be used for tie downs or to secure the Skimmer using a 3" climber's clip attached to the Skimmer's carrying tab.
*The SkimmerSack Mini is more durable than any other "molar" style beanbag that we know of - all of which are made either of cheaper nylon "pack cloth" or canvas materials and none of which are double stitched like the SkimmerSack Mini.
Fabrics: • Durable 500 denier DuPont Cordura(r) nylon (waterproof urethane coated)
• Non-skid Toughtek fabric for the interior
• US-Made Fabrics

• Self-healing #5 zipper
• Buckle closures

• U.S. Made
• All seams double stitched with nylon thread for added strength
• Stress areas stitched at least 5 times
Lint and dust can be removed with a lightweight brush. Hand wash in lukewarm water with a mild soap. Drip dry. Use a moist rag with soap and spot clean. Unless you are using synthetic fill we recommend storing the bag empty in order to prevent mold and fungus from forming inside.

NatureScapes warrants its products against defects in materials and workmanship for two years. This warranty does not cover damage caused by negligence or improper use, nor does it cover the breakdown of material which inevitable occurs with extended use, including zipper & hook & loop wear. Our liability is limited to replacement of original gear – compensation for damaged equipment is not implied. Ship prepaid and insured to us with a copy of the sales receipt. If item is found to be defective, we will repair or replace at our option.

Here are some basic fill guidelines:
• See included instruction sheet for suggested fill - we use sunflower seeds and feed them to the birds when we are finished with them. With 70-90% fill you can place over a car door and shoot with a lens.
• With 40% fill the "legs" can be folded under making a flatter "pancake" style beanbag for use with smaller lenses or for a lower profile. With 70-80% fill the "legs" can be spread out and placed on top of a car or in between the rails of a safari vehicle - leaving the round surface available for cradling your lens.

Greg's tips for using the NatureScapes SkimmerSack Mini: "I personally developed the SkimmerSack II for use with the Skimmer II when shooting out of the car with a big lens and I have found it to be the best solution by far. Gone are the days of a permanently mounted window mount or overly large bulky beanbags that cradle the lens too much and restrict your movement." -Greg Downing
TIP #1
When filling the SkimmerSack Mini, don't fill it too tightly - leaving a little room allows it to "hug" the lens.
TIP #2
For a lighter fill try buckwheat hulls or poly beads, such as those found in beanbag chairs. Some even travel with the SkimmerSack Mini used this way.
TIP #3
My favorite fill is whole sunflower seeds - they are lighter than beans or rice and birds love them so you can just dump them on the ground when you're finished.
TIP #4
The easiest way I have found to fill the SkimmerSack Mini is to use one of those plastic bird feeder fillers - which is essentially a large funnel. A small can or drinking cup works as well.
