    Gauging Interest: Custom Bag for Bob Trailer

    Hey Guys! I thought I would drop a post here to gauge interest on a new bag I'm about to make for my BOB trailer and I thought I would see if anyone else here would be interested in something like this. If so, i'll order some extra materials so I could make a few extras.

    I don't want to give away too much of the design details but basically I'm looking to make a tub style, top load, zippered entry bag for the Bob trailer. The bag itself will be totally waterproof, the bottom will be lightly padded and the sides will have removable/flexible re-enforcement for support when empty. The bottom will have stow away shoulder straps. The bag will be made using lightweight fabrics and will have a vinyl bottom.

    Anyone interested in something like this? Imagine something like the now discontinued bag below but made with lighter weight materials.



    I've made quite a bit of gear myself and have a small side business (http://www.thekoziecanine.com) that involves sewing, so I have some experience behind the machine. Construction will be top notch.


    Here are some examples of past sewing projects:

    "Bikepacking Kit"


    Top Tube Bag w/ Padded front/bottom & reinforced sides/bottom


    Custom Frame Bag w/ zippered map pocket on left and velcro divided side pockets on right.

    Very nice work. I don't use by bob enough to justify one right now. I am curious if you take on one-off projects?

    Thanks for the compliment. As far as one-off projects, drop me a PM with what you have in mind and I'll let you know.
