WHAT'S THE STORY?
This bag has be a couple of years in the making.
Originally it started off from the need to store the boots outside the swag.
Wether it was protecting them from the rain or something crawling in or curious wildlife taking off with then (it can happen!). We just knew that we did not want them in the swag with us yet wanted them close at hand to wack back on when needed, especially when nature calls...
After testing a few roll top PVC bag prototypes that were stitched only, we realised that water can get in. May only be a few mm in driving rain that won't upset your boots but it was enough for us. Welding does at a lot more time and expense to the product yet it opens up opportunities too.
We love watching Pete from WA Camping Adventures (WACA) Tinny trips on YouTube and wondered if this bag had more potential uses... mmm....
So next step was to stitch and weld the bottom + side seams, remove the stitched logo and develop something that will not let the water in.
It's going to get constant testing from Pete on his Tinny trips and we may see more canoe camping trips.
We also think it has potential to complement new load hauler / radio style pack designs, like the awesome kit from High Range Outdoors - click here
Note - The bag is being designed for practical use on land and water to keep gear protected and dry as possible. It is not designed to be sumberged or waterproof rated. So for most common outdoor activities it will do the job, it's not designed for professional use. We want to personally use it and see our customers use it comfortably as a bag that can be exposed to the elements on the roof rack, tray, trailer, boat, canoe, backpack etc.. so that is what we are aiming for. If we're not 100% comfortable to use it personally with our own gear, we won't release it.
In time we'd love to find a more eco product that does the same job compared to PVC. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please let us know.
We'd love to hear & see how it works for you. As always we will make improvements based on your feedback.
