I've been working on this idly for the better part of a year now...its been a long process getting the materials and tools and bringing my skills back up to snuff...
Here's my best work to date....I intend to start making these pretty regularly and see if I can sell a few at the next Trexlertown Swap....I owe a couple of Members bags too and rest assured they are coming before the fall.
I'd love to hear some feedback or comments or criticism...I've been using my bags constantly since the spring and I think I'm finally happy enough with the results to put my name on it and give it to someone else.
This is my own design for a Tri-Fold style bag, the pockets have been sized to fit an innertube/folded tire/wallet/phone in any of the 3 pockets. There's a slim pocket along the edge to fit a small flashlight or writing implement.
Construction is of Waterproofed #8 Cotton Duck, Latigo Strip Leather and heavy duty synthetic stitching. It ties on to your saddle's bag loops using the D rings on top.
There's been some hiccups as to be expected along the way...This is the 4th or so revision since I started...I'm pretty satisfied with this result and I'm willing to call it my "Production Model" but there may still be some changes to the binding that goes around the edge of the bag.
