How much sand can it hold? How large is it? From what is it made? Weight? Add a better description please.

Iron, Wood, Clay, Steel, Copper, Rock, Bone, Leather etc...

In future you should post something more productive, Light asked you to give information and you haven't responded correctly. Please make sure you make everyone aware of the material inwhich you're gourd is created from. To make sure everyone is aware you add the materials nature in with the gourds description, hence Light asking you to provide that information.

Well, not to seem rude but a Gourd is actually made out of Gourd. It's a dried and hollowed out plant, from the "Gourd" family. Well known examples of gourds are the pumpkin, and squash. Reasonably, both could be hollowed out to make a gourd suitable for containing both liquids and solids. Composition aside, you do need to better define the construction of the gourd to better explain its size and dimensions. Course, I came here to talk about something other than what a gourd is.

I just wish to note a correction, because an item that carries 3 lbs of sand would be about the size of a small can of soda. Kinda silly to have something so small strapped to your back. A "gallon" of sand can weight about 30-40 lbs due to sand's fluid like nature and density. If you want something like Gaara's sand gourd, it'd probably be upwards of a thousand pounds of sand, which is rather ridiculous. I assumed the sand supported itself, so Gaara didn't have to carry it himself, but I digress.

If you want to stick to three pounds of sand you're more than welcome, But I'd suggest carrying more. I'd say you could easily consider something like Gaara's gourd to be in the 80-100 pound range(with sufficient suspension of disbelief), which when strapped to the back is a reasonable load for almost any shinobi to be carrying around with them. It's only a little more than marines carry, I think?

So yeah, just throwing my 2 cents in, to give you something to think about.

Take a quick look over and fix you're spelling mistakes and that should be all good dude.

Eh, I don't see a person walking around with 200 pounds of sand on their back without suffering some penalties. I looked over your inuzuka and don't see any super strength, though I'm also not sure that's the character this is for.

Explain how are you able to tote around 200 lbs all day long, or add some drawbacks. Or reduce the weight of the gourd or something, because it doesn't need to be that heavy. Dried gourds are pretty light on their own, which is why people have used them for transporting things. Most people shy away from carrying 100 dried fruit husks with them.
