They can be used to replace fill from other bags as well, as long as the bag has an opening which is re-closable.
Material works great for my bag. A slight squeeze is all it takes to change the orientation of my rifle. Very light but very durable.
I ordered 1 bag. It was the perfect amount for my waxed canvas OG. It is now so light that I barely notice it. I carried the bag for 20+ miles hunting last week. I shot a spike bull and my son harvested his first mule deer shooting off of this fill/bag on top a tripod. This settles and locks up nicely.
I cut one of the beads in half, it is solid black all the way through. These beads are still squishy. They spring back fully when compressed. But it's not as squishy as the white fake snow beads. It's still not completely firm like the original HDPE beads. Which is the only reason I'm giving it four stars. I'm still on the hunt for a lightweight fill that is completely firm with no squish. However until that is found I would definitely order this and recommend it 100%. I cannot speak to whether or not it is the same as git-lite because I don't own any and have never seen it myself.
