Dahon-like Brompton carry-on cover?

Hello,

Dahon's cover + shoulder straps combo is very nice when you need to bag and carry a Brompton folded, but it's needlessly big for its 16" wheels.

As shown, the cover itself is very light and compact since the straps actually carry the bike's weight.

Before I try to sew my own, does someone know if it's available somewhere?

Thank you.

Thanks. It's a bit bulky since the bag carries the bike's weight, but I'll check it out, at least as a model to make my own.

Alternatively, there's the OffYerBike handle + shoulder strap, and a DIY cover with two holes at the top for the carabiners.

Edit: Even simpler. Make a rectangular hole at the top of the cover, large enough to pass a closed-loop strap to go underneath the main frame, and use it as a shoulder strap. Good enough just to walk up a few stairs.
