I know. this has been addressed a thousand times but the search did not find it. I fill my bag with pet bedding but it is really too heavy. I want something light but that does not break down and molds well. I was thinking maybe hollow plastic beads. What are you folks using. Where do you find it?

John Eroh fills his with cut up pellet tin protectors, very light.
Do you mean the ones Pyramid uses? nt

I use the open cell foam packaging Pyramyd Air uses to ship the tins of pellets as filler for my bum bag.
Dice (cut) them up into 1" cubes. They compress, recover and are very light.
I also use them in my knee roll.

I'm using buck wheat hulls; several other shooters have used this. Its really light, does not compress, adapts to your bum well and is very comfortable, and best of all much easier to fill than styrofoam pellets (which I found fly every where due to static electrical charge). You can find several sources on Amazon.
I too use buckwheat hulls as they keep me higher and conform to your

position and stays there. Absolutely no slipping. But I don't say they are light as my bag weighs 8 lbs. Of course I want to be at the 6" height restriction for AAFTA.
The stability, and fact it can be shaped against angled shooter boxes, make it worth the weight. Oh and it has been in my bag for 2.5 years with no appreciable loss of loft......
I bought the buckwheat hulls but went back to styrafoam

I did something a bit different ...
|October 12 2017, 10:42 AM |
Went to the local dollar store and picked up 3 High Density foam garden kneeling mats ....
They are about 18" long by 9" wide by about an inch think ....
Cut them into strips and feed them through my yard leaf and waste shredder ...
they came out looking like this ....
Perfect amount to fill my bum bag .... water proof .. they don't disintegrate over time , light weight and they give fantastic firm but cushioned support.
That was 4 years ago .... and my bag is still good.

first of all you need to get a bum bag! Not a back pack.
And as a Wise Gentleman from SoCal has said.
I gave you the answer ....why are you asking anyone else.

Filler did not smell like styrofoam beads.
