I'm kicking around an idea for a new product, and I want to make it as flexible as I can for how people tend to employ these large, lightweight bags. For those of you that use large 'pillow' type bags (IE: Armageddon Gear Fat Bag, WieBad Todd and Pump pillows, etc), how do you ususally put them to use? Do you wrap them to your arm? Leg? Tether them to a belt/belt loop? Use something to hang them from some other body part? Simply carry them and put them where you want it?

Edit to add: This isn't another bag, but something that would work with the ones already on the market. Once I get my first pyototype mocked up, I might find some other uses for it, too.

I use one very rarely. Typically only on a rooftop stage and I’ll use the Armageddon gear bungee to a belt loop when I do.

Carabineer, bungee, belt. I use the Armageddon Gear 'big ass bag' reverse kneeling as I'm 6'6" 340 lbs. It's a to scale fatbags/pump pillow. The bag was actually developed off a custom bag I had them make. Everywhere I go folks borrow it, and many called in to order one. It's far more versatile than many would think. Rooftops its money, high prone under chest, low Hobbit stages I can put it in front of me and support elbows. Just a great bag, from a great company.

Deep in thought at CORE... A WTF thought I'm sure, lol. View attachment 6997027

Ok even like an on barricades. Strap over the shoulder with the bag in your armpit resting the rear of the rifle is nice and stable. Ive even sat on the bag on a tractor tire stage. Lots of uses i haven't strapped my arm in yet but sure i will at some point

Yeah, I'm looking for exactly what you said - where are people putting the bag in telation to their body when using it on a stage. I use mine between my leg and the butt of the rifle more than anything else, but I like to have it hanging under my arm where it's easy to get into position.

I like to use either the shoulder strap on my Traust bag or a carabiner with a bungee to connect it to my waist. On rooftops the shoulder strap is nice because I can spin it around to my front where I need it when I'm on the rooftop, and back behind me when I don't if I move to and from the rooftop during the stage. On barricade stages the carabiner and bungee combo is a little better since on the low sections of the barricade I set the bag on top of my knee to support the butt of the rifle, which is a bit of a stretch for the shoulder strap.

That's the exact kind of info/feedback I am looking for. If anyone else is able to chime in, I'd like to hear it.
