- BRS Mesh Filter Sock with Draw String
seems to work By Adam on 6/23/2014Adam would recommend this product to a friendWorks pretty good for filtering larger particals, draw string makes them easy to use
Good filter socks... bad stitching. By Pegasus on 5/12/2014Pegasus would recommend this product to a friendThese work great for filtering out larger particles. Easy to use and do a great job. The only complaint I and many others have is the poor stitching. One of mine has already unraveled at the top, rendering the drawstring useless. It's nothing a little stitching won't fix, but it would be nice if I didn't have to repair them for long-term use. Other than that, they're great.
works for rox carbon By cho on 4/10/2014cho would recommend this product to a friendI like how it closes up tightly. Only thing I've found that works for Rox 0.8. Stitching needs improvement.
Love the draw string feature By Nil on 3/14/2014Nil would recommend this product to a friendGood price, good offerings in terms of sizes.
worked good and cost effective By tlorsung on 1/26/2014tlorsung would recommend this product to a friendThey work great, easily cleaned by hand. I use them for my first stage filtration, tie it around the return hose and clean it when water level in hose goes up.
Not Bad By Brian on 12/10/2013Brian would recommend this product to a friendBought 3 of these. The stitching does not seem very good. Hope they hold up in the washer. I like the tie aspect. Its collecting the bad stuff in my tank, so it's doing it's job...
Serves My Purposes Well By lobro4 on 12/9/2013lobro4 would recommend this product to a friendI got this specifically for holding GFO in my sump. It is fine enough to hold the granules without any leaking out. Heavy enough to stand the high flow.
Strong By Travis on 12/4/2013Travis would recommend this product to a friendThese are the perfect bags to use with my carbon in my refugium. I would recommend getting two, that way you can clean one, and use one! No down time is a beautiful thing!
Crap and expensive By Anthony on 12/3/2013Anthony wouldn't recommend this product to a friendSo I may be a bit jaded since mine arrived with a small hole in it, This resulted in GFO and carbon getting into my tank and sump. I didn't also for a refund, not worth the effort, but I've gotten comparable quality mesh filter socks at my LFS for less that $2 (ok, to be fait, the draw string on these is very nice, but the rest is no different).
Poor quality stitching By Gordon on 6/10/2013Gordon wouldn't recommend this product to a friendFilter sock would be excellent except the stitching comes apart after only one or two washings. Loose threads could float into pumps and cause problems.
Great for media By garrison on 4/5/2013garrison would recommend this product to a friendI used this for gfo and carbon. It lets water in easily and doesn't clog
Works great for me (GFO and carbon) By Nick on 4/3/2013Nick would recommend this product to a friendSo far, the mesh has held up well in my sump, so it does what it says it does. Oh, and in case you like knotting your mesh bags about 600 times, you have PLENTY of drawstring to do just that!

Filter socks come in mesh or felt and with a plastic ring or draw string. See below for differences and unique advantages.
- Mesh: Thin, doesn't clog as easily as felt
- Felt: Thicker, better at removing particles, but can clog faster
- Plastic Ring: attaches via ring that fits common sump holders
- Draw String: attaches directly to plumbing
- BRS recommends starting with felt socks and switching to mesh if they clog faster than desired.
