Each bag weighs a bit more than 20lbs.
I had 3 bags sent via UPS and total weight was 62 lbs.
And yes in my opinion worth every penny.

why do you want to know pounds? AS is lighter than most other substrates. It will not go into a substrate calculator like the other substrates.

if you're trying to figure out how much to use, one 9-liter bag of AS equals two bags of fluorite. I used 3.5 bags of AS for my 60 gallon tank.

Forgot to mention, since I was able to get both fluorite and AS locally, the AS actually came out cheaper than flourite. After experiencing both, I would get AS again even if it was twice the cost due to the looks, feel, non-scratchiness but mostly due to the effect on my water and how happy my plants are now.
