I have alarge rear end. Let's just be real about it. So as I consider showing up to a match with what I have used in the past - boating floation cushions - it occurs to me that a proper bum bag filled with buck wheat shells is in order.... atleast thatis what I get the imperssion I should be using.

What reccomendations do you have and where etc?

Thank you for your help.

It's from Airguns of Arizona. It is a Daystate bag. All cordura. I use the buckwheat hulls that I bought at Amazon.com....

The bag retails around $60 if they still carry them. Very well built quality as the name indicates. Their are probley less expensive ones out there. Try eBay...

Google it with THAT spelling. The spelling seems foreign, but the company is owned by a Brit-American, residing in Tennessee.

I prefer buckwheat hulls. Heavier than most other fillers, but superior for finding/fine-tuning comfortable, STABLE shooting positions. Again, Google can locate sources.

Yoga Cushion w Buckwheat fill...
the buckwheat won't squish over time and the cost is less than what true "bum bags" cost -- $33 from Amazon.
Have had this one for about 5 years now and have had 0 problems and no compression.
Some people like the squishy, though, as it gives them a more stable seat. just something to think about.

He was selling some of the bum bags at the Cajun Classic. He was way less then other for them. He is in Tenn and shoot with the
Good Ol Boys club as well at his own club.

Their bag is large, maybe even considered extra large. It forms around my bottom well. As for fill I use what it came with(mostly compressed now) and random sized cut up pieces of the shipping rings your pellets come in from PA. I can wiggle my way into a comfortable position and when I'm done the filling returns to form. I got the Idea from Leo G.

it to about 60 to 75% of it's capacity. I want to be able to use the edge of it only with about an inch or two of fill, when I want my butt lowered and/or my knee higher for uphill shots.

I've used that same cork supplier and the recylced stuff is just fine at $3.44 or whatever per pound. I bought some about 5 years ago and have worn out the bags, and just moved the cork into a new bag.. it's still holding up like new.
