River Spirit

Woo woo. 22x14, 7x15 (bottom)
The flap was designed by my friend Jessie for her brother, Davey. Yeps.

I've decided to go back to using ladderlocs for the front compression bits on the larger bags. They're way easier to use...especially if you're wearing gloves.

I've moved the pen holster to the front. It's easier to get to and, hopefully, the pen won't get pulled out as much whilst removing other things. Yeah.

Bags To Come

Unlike a certain new San Francisco bag company, I don't have parts of my bags made in China. Oh damn. Ha...
Anyway, these are for some Sunbrella-lined fifteen-inchers. I'm trying to clean up and use all my Sunbrella fabric. I've decided that I have too much fabric in my house, and since I'm never going to buy any more Sunbrella, I want it gone. That's how I roll.For some reason I can make a bunch of these zipper pockets at a time and it doesn't get tedious...but doing a bunch of bags sucks. I guess it's 'cause these feel like finished products almost...and it doesn't take too long to finish a bunch...but with bags it seems like it takes forever to finish just it delays that "yeah, I just finished a bag" feeling of satisfaction. Hmm...

Strap Pouches

I'm not a big fan of tiny strap pouches...but, you know, some people whatever... Man, I suck at making a good square corner (or kinda sqare) with grosgrain. It's hard. I don't know how wallet-makers do it.

This is pretty much the only place I use Velcro. Makes it easy to put on the strap. Yeah.

Leif Labs! Woo!

Yep. 19x12, 13x6. Top Gun flap through and through. Fixed shoulder pad (i.e. no tri-glide).
Super fantastic inside pockets. (Limited edition.)
