    Get some lengths of foam pipe lagging and cut to the length of your roll. Stuff them in and then fill the excess space with the same beads in your bean bag.
    Cheap, light, waterproof and will not collapse even after prolonged use.

    Plastic beads. But they aren’t light and you will need about 2kgs worth so not cheap either.

    I've put a strip of sleeping mat round the outside and packed the inside with Cork crumb, it's heavy ish but it doesn't compress

    A foam pipe lagging core wrapped in large bubble wrap. Light, comfy and practically free.

    Cork chippings. Doesn't blow away in strong wind or compress much.

    Yep foam pipe lagging is pretty good and works well.

    I use foam polyethylene 4mm. (Laminated Parquet pads)
    Roll tightly to the desired diameter and insert into the case

    Thanks for all the replies, I looked at the plastic bead option but can't get any locally so I'm going to try this first

    Get some lengths of foam pipe lagging and cut to the length of your roll. Stuff them in and then fill the excess space with the same beads in your bean bag.

    thanks C.Eaton, basically free and if it works out "jobs a goodun"

    I'll let you know how i get on after the weekend

    No problem mate, give it a good use as it will 'settle' the same as a bean bag, so just top up with more beads after it's been used a few times.
    Also slice up any pipe lagging left over and stuff that in there, you need it to be as firm as possible but with a little give, in order to give the maximum support
