So, after a few recent requests, I did some prototyping today. One of the new ideas is simple: It’s just a phone pouch for bigger phones like the Samsung Note and the Iphone 6 and 7 Pluses. The measurements for the pouch will be 3″ wide by 6 1/2″ tall by 1″ deep, and is tested to work with a Note 5 in a case, and a Iphone 6 Plus just fine. This one is just a scaled version of a design I already have, and so I will put it up for sale now for all you folks who’ve been asking about it.Thanks so much to all of you for the input!
The other new product is a boxy tool bag design I’ve been thinking of, which is basically a dopp kit bag made from cordura with a tarp liner. On the prototype I used some brass YKK zipper that I had, but i think I’ll likely use YKK waterproof zipper in the end. This first one was about 9″long by 5″ high by 4″ deep, which feels like a good size to me. I’ll do a little playing around with the design, and report back in a few days!
Hi folks, after a lot of work to get the website up and running, and everything working well for you, I am finally at a point where I can open up all of the products for customer orders. This means that you can configure each product with whatever colors of fabrics and other notions, and purchase them through the website. I have all of the colors listed in stock, and should be able to build bags and ship them out in about 4-6 weeks. I have enough of the liner materials for 1 bag each, and will be ordering some more in a few weeks if everything goes well. Also, don’t forget to check out the Ready Made Products for items available for immediate purchase. And as always, head on over to the Contact page with any questions you might have. Thanks so much!
Hi Folks, welcome to 2017! As most of you know, I have been on a bit of a hiatus from taking custom orders for a couple of years. Many factors contributed to this, like physical therapy for back injuries (finally healed after many years of pain), broken ribs (twice last summer), and a big move from Boston to North Carolina. After a long time catching up with back orders and life, I’ve been back in the workshop and am trying to build up steam to get this project rolling again. To start, I’ve made a number of things and have them listed up in a new category, Ready Made items. These are all ready to go, and can ship out within a couple of days. I made a bunch of phone holsters, and a couple of small and manifest sized hip pouches, and started on a few small backpacks. In the next month or two I hope to put together as many things as I can with the materials I have left over, and once I get some money back in the bank I should be able to open up custom orders again. I’ve also spent a lot of time re-vamping the website, and have a few other changes to come soon so stay tuned for that. Again, thanks to everyone for your patience, and I look forward to what’s to come!
I finished up 2 bags today. Black one is a commuter bag for my friend Danny, and the other is another work bag for a Right Coast Courier Rider. Right coast sure does represent! Also of note: hidden pocket at the back of the blue one.
Hey folks, just to give everyone a heads up, I will be away for the summer and so I’m shutting off orders after April 15th until August when I get back. If you can still see the custom order page, then I’m still taking orders. However, after the 15th I’m gonna hide the page so no one can submit orders for the summer. Sorry for the inconvenience, I’ll update y’all when the time gets closer!
