F.A.Q. How soon will i get my bag? Usually 2-4 weeks for a custom order. It will vary some depending on how many orders I have at the time. I do bags by the date of the order. I will start on the order as soon as deposit is received. How is custom pricing done? Send me your design idea or image and i'll get a quote out to you. It's mostly based on time. Sometimes a custom flap design takes more time than constructing the bag itself. Will you customize anything? Just about. If you have unique dimensions in mind or pocket to hold something specific we can do that with the info and dimensions. Can features be added after the bag is assembled? No. There is almost no way to take the bag apart to add something extra after the fact. Try and make sure to thoroughly think through what you want before ordering. How does the strap system work? The strap system is usually only complicated when using the d-rings and metal buckle. With the bag on, pull out and up and the left d-ring to tighten. Then pull that ring to the right to press the strap against the teeth while pulling the other ring to pull the slack through to the side.
A year or so ago i decided i needed a new and bigger bag. Rather than buy a new one i figured i'd try my hand at making my own. Never intending to make more than that, somehow i ended up making almost 30 bags last year, mostly for local commuters and friends.
If you can make your own, do it! If you can't, at least get one perfectly customized to your needs and from a local crafter who isn't hiding behind a huge infrastructure or exploiting foreign labor.
