Best bean bag?

I'm looking at the POD bags, but is there anything out there that's better for draping over an open car window, etc?

Those are really nice, but WAY too big for my needs. I was looking for something as big as half a shoebox (more or less), with a non-slip base.

They are not the hardest things in the world to makeshift one yourself. Also there are a variety of window mounts that clip on to the window if the lens isn't too huge (although I've put a 9lb lens on a manfrotto window mount with no trouble) -- search for "window mount" at B&H....

Bag of rice especially if flying to your destination. Buy it then leave it.

This might sound funny, but I actually made my own for the car window. A simple pillow case sized, sewn and some dry beans from Walmart, and it's done. Cheap and effective.

Bean Bag

Kirk Photo makes the Fat Bag, it can be bought filled or empty. I have one and it is very well made. I bought it empty and filled it with styrofoam beads so it is very light but still gives good support.

Cheers Chris
