After a little research, I found a seamstress who may be willing to make the bags to our specs. Im willing to help out, represent the community, and see if I can make this happen for us, but Im still discussing the details with her and make no promises. I have some questions for you: 1) Id like to give her a better sense of numbers, so please reply if you may want to purchase a carry bag. This is not a commitment, just an estimate. 2) Do you prefer lighter-weight materials? This does not mean less protective or less durable, this literally means lighter weight. Im an ultra-light enthusiast, so I prefer and used a 3oz supplex nylon for my bag instead of a heavier ripstop nylon. Im guessing some would like heavy-weight, others light-weight. Im not sure we can please everyone, but Id like to hear your preferences. Below are some changes I would make to the design of the bag. It may be opening a can of worms to ask, but the bag is for you, so please feel free to provide your input. 1) Change the lid to a zippered style, more like this: 2) Use duffel style carry handles, so the bag would not require use of a gear grips handle and the lid would not have a hole in the middle like mine does. 3) Optional shoulderstrap? Materials such as D-rings and strap webbing would add to cost 4) 2 large cargo style pockets and 2 slim non-cargo style pockets for peripherals. (My pockets are all somewhat slim) 5) Improve padding and seam reinforcement Let me know what you think.
