    Here's a custom bag and tool rolls I made with an embroidered logo for a motorcycle club.

    Just like any Cordura, just spray them with silicone water protectant. :deal Then your good to go... I've sprayed my bedrolls from brady (Thanx again for my tent and bedroll tubes) and my Aerostich tank panniers for years and they're always dry inside.

    Just ordered a set of these Brady... have been using a set of Katahdin gauntlets for a few years and looks like yours may offer much better entry and protection. WIll test them in Labrador end of this month first of May.
    Thanx,
    JJ

    Hey Brady - Glad to see your business is still going strong! How difficult would it be to make a tool roll with a zippered compartment on each end?

    I'm debating using your standard roll vs. going custom.

    Thanks!

    Would an accessory pouch on each end work for your needs? (Shown just on the left side in the picture below)

    Yes, that's what I was thinking.

    Very doable! I'll PM you to work out the details.

    My order arrived the other day, lovely build quality Brady, looking forward to using it in the field (well maybe not ACTUALLY using it) and placing more orders!

    Thanks mate
    Job well done!

    Hey Brady, two questions, can you do stuff with clear plastic? I have a tool roll where the front of the pouch (when unrolled) is clear, and I have gotten very used to that. I would want a roll almost identical, with a large pouch and maybe one or two more slots and a zipper around the whole thing.

    Also, I have a jacket that I love, the only thing that's annoying is that the sleeve ends do not have an expansion zipper to ease getting gauntlet gloves under the sleeve. Any chance you can add a zipper to that? Maybe a 2 way zipper with a mesh gusset?

    And now I got an idea for a GIVI liner modular bag system......grrr

    I asked Brady to make up some saddlebags similar to the Magadan panniers. I really wanted a rolltop instead of zippers, and asked for a certain size similar to my hard bags. They turned out awesome, but way to big. It had been so long since I ran soft bags, I forgot how much stuff you can really shove into them. So back they went to Brady, and he worked his magic again. Sorry about the poor photographer.:lol3

    Those really look awesome! Are they taller than most bags... always think the Wolfmans and such need to be taller!

    I agree, which is why I contacted Brady. They are 24" tall, 14" wide, 7" deep.

    <a href="http://s814.photobucket.com/user/hardwaregrrl/media/P1070334_zps17f72f39.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i814.photobucket.com/albums/zz66/hardwaregrrl/P1070334_zps17f72f39.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo P1070334_zps17f72f39.jpg"/></a>

    So I am pointing at a pass through for rok straps or whatever you have to tie the bags against your rack.

    Here's another shot of 3 pass throughs for the straps. Behind the H2O holder and the roll top straps.

    <a href="http://s814.photobucket.com/user/hardwaregrrl/media/P1070345_zps7ed45e72.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i814.photobucket.com/albums/zz66/hardwaregrrl/P1070345_zps7ed45e72.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo P1070345_zps7ed45e72.jpg"/></a>

    Fuzzy, bad ass velcro over seat straps.

    I asked if he could stiffen them, as I imagine they won't always be loaded for an adventure. His idea is pretty cool, and keeps them light. He made 2 internal pockets for me to put some plexi or whatever to give the bag shape, but would be a sweet map pocket.

    <a href="http://s814.photobucket.com/user/hardwaregrrl/media/P1070346_zps239d7766.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i814.photobucket.com/albums/zz66/hardwaregrrl/P1070346_zps239d7766.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo P1070346_zps239d7766.jpg"/></a>

    Velcro top, makes it easier to keep together when you roll down a full load.

    <a href="http://s814.photobucket.com/user/hardwaregrrl/media/P1070336_zps497ce8ae.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i814.photobucket.com/albums/zz66/hardwaregrrl/P1070336_zps497ce8ae.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo P1070336_zps497ce8ae.jpg"/></a>

    Shamless plug for Storm industries.

    H2O holders fit a full size nalgene with room on top.

    The retro reflective material is just as bright as any. You'll notice in previous pics the bags kind of stick out at the top on my bike. I had Brady not sew the roll top straps so close to the top. I wouldn't recommend this as it puts a lot of stress on that stiching, but I have a rack built into the seat on my bike, and I had no choice but to do that. I have yet to ride in the rain, but these were not expected to be waterproof. I'll buy some big dry bags to put inside. But I will say I went through, 5 or 6 six creeks that day at some speed. Enough to get my face wet, stuff inside the bags were dry.

    I love them, simple solution to a lifetime of luggage farkling. A ton of pockets is overrated.:lol3

    Hey there Brady -- a repeat offender checking in to thank you for your products -- my wife *loves* the custom embroidery on her Pelican Case liners, and we're both pretty stoked about the "hippo hands".

    We'd like to try using a wash-in waterproofing on the hippo hands -- do you have any recommendations in that regard?

    Thanks again for some great products.

    I would recommend starting with a spray-on waterproof product. I mostly recommend this product because I have a fair amount of experience with it and have had good results as well.

    I have not used a wash-in waterproof product yet.

    If you decide to go the route of the wash-in, let me know the results.

    Hey Brady! I got to brag on my custom tool roll at a club tech day today. Made me think you can make me a better camera bag than anything I've seen that hasn't been the right size anyway :D I'll send you one of my goofy drawings in an email!

    I received my Kermit chair bag today... It looks great and the chair and leg extensions are already packed in the bag. It fits perfectly and there is enough room left over for a couple of items, like tent stakes and poles...

    Thanks for the wonderful job and the speedy shipping! I'll be ordering some more things in the future!!! Keep up the good work! :clap
