    I've taken the sand out of one of my Protector rear bags and filled it will fine saw dust. It works if I'm packing in and going light but its not as solid and stable as with sand. I always have to have a squeeze on the bag. I've heard of guys using buck wheat hulls also.

    Hey gents, Try fillin a sock with rice. Grain rice and tie a knot in the sock to pack it tight like a sandbag.Lighter than sand but also stable. Dskiperlightbulb
