Looking to shed some weight for field matches. How is this product working? How much stability will I lose? Wouldn’t mind shedding some pounds. Thanks for input

Git Lite is good stuff man, just do yourself a favor and pick it up. Saves a ton of weight, without losing the stability. Absolutely a no brainer to buy it.

I've been running it for about 8 months now. I played with one of Chris' bags at a PRS match in Montana and decided to swap out the fill in my Gamechanger.

Really liked it, so then I swapped out my BLAMM bag. At this point I'm thinking it's the way to go. Its money in my BLAMM, the weight reduction is fantastic with no loss of performance versus heavy fill beads.

I have it in a game changer and love it. If you use it side by side with other light/foam fill, it is a no brainer. It's the stability of a heavy fill without the weight.

I can echo what these other guys said. I’ve been running it in a game changer for several months and 2-3 matches and love it. To me, it is just as stable as the heavy fill. Great stuff

Anyone have a lead on where to buy this stuff other than directly from Git-Lite?

The shipping charge kills it for me. Makes more sense to order directly from Armageddon gear.

@Mxridr I'm running it in my udder bag you should try it out next match... the weight savings is incredible but as you know I've likely got the lightest rifle being run in our club match (13lbs) light rifle and light bag hasn't been the most stable combination in some situations . Still a fantastic product

It brought my OG game changer from over 6lbs to about 2lbs. I’ve shot 2 matches with it and a few range trips. I love it! NO RAGRETS

Fantastic stuff! Works great for positional and prone. Seems to hold up really well over lots of use and long term use. It’s one of my go-to shooting bags

I might be in the minority, love the weight savings, but hate the stability. I found the sand and regular fills to be more effective than the Git-Lite in stability.

I have a OG waxed canvas gamechanger filled about 80% with it right now. I will play around with the fill percentage and report back

I have been practicing with my GC filled with Getlite for a couple weeks and can not say I miss the weight. I think there may be just some extra security feel when holding it, but when I plop it on the barricade and mount the rifle I can not say i miss the heavy. I know my pack feels better.

I bought some fill from a company called SpexLite and it is their 5125 fill. I bought enough to do a large GC, but haven't bought a large GC yet. Going to get a waxed OG GC to try it in. I am running a mini GC and like the stability of the heavy fill. If this stiff is legit, I will probably get another mini waxed GC to put it in for a lighter hunting bag.

I too liked the weight savings ( bought a GC with Git Lite fill ) but just not the same stability as the heavy bags. I normally go between the Waxed GC, Waxed MFC and Pint sized GC. To me there’s quite a difference compared to the light weight fill. The Only way I can describe it as a more jumpy wobble with the Git-Lite. With the heavy sand what movement I have just feels slower and not as bouncy. Know that sounds silly but it just appears as a different kind of wobble on barricades. So for me I’m still hauling my Waxed GC and Waxed MFC.
