Poor ergonomics, September 8th, 2013 05:37 pm

The ergonomics of this bag leave much to be desired. It has two primary faults. #1 the natural position of the chanter is sticking out requiring you to have to hold the chanter in place. #2 the grommet for the blowpipe is of a style where it just sets in the groove of the stock allowing no repositioning. This would be find except it doesn't put the mouthpiece anywhere near your mouth. The prevalence of these bags is probably responsible for all the blowpipes coming out with ball and socket joints to get around the blowstick angle problem. Probably also why Willie McCallum collaborated with them to design his own style bag. $5 it doesn't have these two major problems. Excellent Synthetic Bag, February 7th, 2013 01:50 pm

The hybrid bag is really popular in our band with those previously accustomed to a hide bag, with its heft and moisture control. The bottom zipper seems better than the side zipper as the zipper then does not come in contact with the player's forearm. Very easy to install and maintain! Good Bag!, August 9th, 2011 05:00 pm

If you the trouble free maintenance of a synthetic bag but the heavier feel of a hide bag, you want this pipe bag no questions about it , December 2nd, 2010 10:13 pm

This is a great pipe bag. I like the feel of a hide bag, it is more substantial and balances the pipes on my shoulder better that a regular synthetic bag. It is airtight, drone stocks are easily installed, and the zipper gives access do whatever you want inside the bag, like drying it out or installing a moisture control system.

In my opinion it's the best synthetic bag out there. The extended small is great for those that get numb fingers playing a medium bag. Bag, November 10th, 2008 06:14 pm

This is a great bag. Has a nice sturdy feel like a hide bag but is maintenance free. I don't love the placement of the zipper but it's not a deal breaker. Best bag on the market. , October 17th, 2008 09:39 pm

I love this bag. Feels like a natural hide bag and doesn't require all the maintenance! , October 5th, 2008 01:01 am

This is an excellent bag! Feels like a good hide bag but has the ease of a zipper so you can get inside and use whatever moisture control device you wish. The sizes are great too, very comfortable.
