Shark Tank Stormbag Update

Stormbag update

  • Entrepreneur: Maurice Huffman and Miles Huffman
  • Business: Sandbag alternative
  • Ask: $200,000 for 10% equity
  • Result: $200,000 for 30% equity
  • Shark: Mark Cuban and Lori Greiner

Miles and Maurice Huffman, founders of Stormbag, began their Shark Tank pitch by demonstrating their product. When a flood is on the way, heavy, cumbersome sandbags are the solution most people resort to, but Stormbag is changing that.

Prepare in Advance
Stormbag - Stormtec Single Garage Door Flood Protection Kit

Each StormTec Door Protection Kit is a simple and easy-to-use tool to help you defend your property from the damages of wind-driven rain. The StormTec Door Protection Kit comes in four sizes 'Single Door', 'Double Door', 'Single Garage Door', and "Double Garage Door'.

We earn a commission if you make a purchase, at no additional cost to you.

A Stormbag is basically an empty sack, that when soaked with water, can replace a traditional sandbag. It takes 3-5 minutes of soaking, and the bag quickly weighs 30 pounds.

Additionally, each Stormbag is made using an absorbent polymer, with the ability to absorb 300 times its weight. It can take 2-3 weeks for the sack to deflate as the water dries up, and it can be re-used up to 3 times.

Guest shark Daniel Lubetzky asks the father-son duo about their backstory. Miles shares that they’re from Paradise, California, and the entire town burned down, causing him and Maurice to lose everything.

When it came time to rebuild, Miles gave up his career as a graphic designer to go into business with his dad and help him with Stormbag. They’ve been working together ever since.

In the year prior to filming, they closed out the year with $90,000 in sales. Each bag retails for $5.50, and costs $2 to manufacture, although, they hope to bring that down to $1.75.

On the flip side of this, traditional sandbags are typically free. The downside of course is that you have to fill them and move them around.

Kevin O’Leary doesn’t like to compete with free, so for that reason, he is out.

Daniel teams up with Daymond John, to offer $200,000 for 40% equity, and in return, the father and son will get two sharks on their side.

At this point, Lori Greiner and Mark Cuban also team up, offering $200,000 for 30% equity. They want to help with repackaging the products for different applications such as plant and garden watering, plus commercial and personal use.

As things heat up in the Shark Tank, Daniel and Daymond decide to match Lori and Mark’s offer. Now Maurice and Miles have a big decision to make.

In the end, they took the deal with Lori and Mark, but what happened following Shark Tank? Keep reading our Stormbag update to find out!

We have good news to share in our Stormbag update. Although there still isn’t much information available regarding recent sales, we’re sure this company will benefit from the Shark Tank boost, after appearing on the show!

According to the Stormbag website, the products are recognized and approved by the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA. Further, they also have a seal approval from the Salt Lake City Bomb Squad and the National Guard.

This should go a long way in giving customers the confidence to replace their traditional sandbags while preparing for natural disasters.

Additional highlights about the products include being non-toxic, and they’re made in the USA. Products are available on Amazon, and also on the company website.

You can get a 10-pack for $79.99 or a 25-pack for a bit more. They’re also available for wholesale, in packages of 250.
