I'm looking for advice from people who have used commercially available bean bags with long lenses.
I have shot with home made bean bags in the past, but looking for something bit better this time.
I'll be shooting from a vehicle similar to ones in the images and will be balancing the lens on a bean bag on the metal bar on the side of the vehicle

Arthur Morris sells bags designed by him for $100, but even with his name I find those to be bit too expensive!!

Any recommendations...
