Sam’s Cornhole Bags :: Cornhole Bag Review

Review: Sam’s Cornhole Bags

We recently had a chance to check out some bags from Sam’s Cornhole Bags. Sam’s is based in Harrisonburg, VA, and specializes in USA made cornhole bags made with hand-made detail. Bags are duck cloth canvas, and are filled with American-grown whole kernel corn. All bags adhere to the official ACA specifications for bags, weighing between 15-16 ounces, and measuring 6″x6″ in size. Bags are double-stitched to ensure heavy use.

We’ll get to specifics below, but it’s worth mentioning off the bat that the bags from Sam’s are well made, and extremely consistent. All 8 bags varied .1 ounces in weight, which is crazy consistent, and not at all common. In the world of Cornhole, it might seem like bags are bags are bags, but Sam’s Cornhole Bags brings something extra to the table. A really professional website, with a I love that I’ve never come across before — the ability to pick your bag colors by your favorite sports team! Search your favorite NCAAF, NFL, NHL, or MLB team, and Sam’s Cornhole Bags will choose from their huge 20 color selection to make sure your bags are JUST the right color. That’s damn cool.

The bags we received were also wrapped in plastic, which is a nice touch in wetter climates. Nothing worse than coming home to a soggy box of cornhole bags on your front porch. (yeah, I’ve had it happen)

Highlights of our testing:

Weight: 15.4 to 15.5 oz.
Size: 6″ corner to corner
Stitching
: double stitched fill side – end to end – very close to edge.
Fill: Whole Kernel Corn
Notes: Amazingly consistent bags. Stitching is very nicely done.
