The spring- loaded clips can be replaced with `D` rings if required and the roll could be longer or wider.

On 12th Feb. I started this thread and less than 4 weeks and more than 1400 views later we are in production and more importantly, are selling product.
The pace at which NOMAD has grown has astounded me and I`m happy to say I`m comfortable that we have achieved our first goal: to produce a quality soft barrel bag of a design that I`m now happy to sell and put my name to.

We have already done numerous bags to customer`s spec`s and see this custom market as an area of growth for us.

The system of delivery via Aramex overnight is in place and working well.

We will get to other soft luggage items in due course and will advertise this on the forum at the appropriate time.

One of the issues with developing new products is that it is expensive and you end up with a LOT of prototypes....I have a ton of bags of various sizes and of various designs that I need to clear and will be up for grabs at HOT prices in the next day or two: see the VENDOR SPECIALS on the forum.

**Even better prices for those who share the NOMAD BIKE BAGS facebook page !

Would there be saving without the side pockets?

The colour combinations look great.  :thumleft:

That`s a `WONDERFUL`  idea...lockable option available...we just add `D` rings at the end of the zips and will allow locking with a small padlock through the slider tag.

Sorry about the delay in answering the question...ja...R100 cheaper without the pockets, so R500.00 !!

Now clearly i`m biased, but that is a SHITHOT price...go see what bike bag you can buy for R500.00 !!!

Thank you Patrol...They are evolving as we go,and I`m pretty happy with what we have achieved so far,but my focus is on function rather than aesthetics.
That said, there is a LARGE sector of the market for whom colour co-ordination and maximum accessories is important : I am currently working on bag with more "bells and whistles" following numerous requests for specific handles, pockets, zips, velcro, etc.

NOMAD...the evolution continues:

I have had a lot of requests for handles on the bags, so here is the new double zip design WIFF a handle.

The velcro flap covers the handle during travelling to prevent flapping.

Would personally like to carry the bag in the closed position. That handle won't flap much in the wind though.

Maybe combine the handle with the tie down strap?

Thanks S/M...everyone has a differing opinion on different features on the bags, hence my concentrating on getting the message across that we do CUSTOM BIKE BAGS....at very competitive prices.

I have daily queries as to whether I will make up to Customer`s spec`s.....YES !!! we do ....so if you want your handle on the inside, or no handle at all...no problem: you tell us what you want we make it.

Yes, lots of opinions and differing taste.
However I am pretty sure that few people will want to open the flap every time they want to lift the bag from the bike.
Not so sure: The way it is attached looks like a high stress point or point load on the bag and not ideal support points (will probably work fine though but don't look 100% right)

Some more opinions and ideas:
If you add a piece of strap between the d-rings on the side then it will add side handles
I would probably add straps with carabiner clips on either side which I can attach anywhere on the bag to use as handles.
The arch in the loops of the red strap is too high too my liking. Just need enough space to pass a bungy cord or strap through.
Too much customization is going to take up too much of your time in communicating. An alternative would be an option list, maybe with a price linked to each. (Eg side pockets = R100)

Please don't don't take my input in a negative way.  I think you have a great product at a very good price. Great combination of simplicity, looks and features.

No offence taken at all.
Your input helps me improve the product...just take a look at the first few we did and how they have evolved into something I think is functional and really works on ANY bike.

The contact point and stitching of the handle is strong as shit...it will not break if used as a handle.

Your comments about the height of the loops is quite correct and is being rectified.

The `option list` is very much part of my planning...the website(which is pissing me off..) will have a basic price for the standard bags and customers will them be able to add accessories.....think Steers basic burger...and you add extra cheese, fries and a drink of your choice !!

PK see your product has certainly taken off since our first discussion a few weeks ago. As promised I'll be taking a <40l bag but now appears I'm spoiled for choice.

Sending you a PM

I don't think this is the FB page https://www.facebook.com/Nomad-Bike-Bags-581488555323592/
this may be adding to your tech frustration.

What is the biggest bag you have now. Like the brown with "KTM trim"
