*EDIT* My apologies, I thought that the OP was just looking for opinion, and not opinion about his own product. Sorry for being a twatwaffle.

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"

38litre is the biggest, but WE WILL MAKE ANY SIZE....custom bags to client`s spec is our speciality.

Tell me what you want and we will make it.

12th Feb to now.....just over a month since starting out and I`m well chuffed with our progess, both ito sales and of how our designs have improved.
Probably not much on the face of it , but lots of little things that improve the product , yet keep it SIMPLE , FUNCTIONAL and AFFORDABLE.

*** PIC : Orders just out of production and a few heading for the courier in 10 minutes.

Good stuff and watching this thread with interest.  :thumleft:

Now for something on my my personal wish list - A small bag no more than 30cm wide (long) and 22cm diameter to fit tools, spanners and tubes and whatever else for the lightweight dual sports like XR, DR, KLR, 690 etc. on a day or weekend ride. Typically - on a lot of dual sports this bag can be bolted down permanently onto the rear fender. When it is full and carrying some weight a tiedown goes ledt to right to secure the bag from bouncing around. Would be cool
to adapt one of your standard designs into a shorty dual-sports bag for rear fender use.

Zacapa there is something in the pipeline just like this : will have a foam/ closed cell foam surround which just seems to work to give the bag a bit of shape and also prevent hard tools, etc from rattling / bashing against the rack/frame.

Will finish prototype next week and post some pics.

Thanks for the feedback Tinus.
Just back from 3 days on the bike in the karroo and came back to more than one positive compliment about the product and service...I`m all fired up and excited about some new products I`m planning.

Cheers,

Here is another idea for your bag.  Make the side panel a double panel with the outer one not a full round panel.
Take the one in the image from Tinus above. Move the side handle a bit higher to be in line with the d-rings.
Now add a half round section below that forming a large pocket without a zip. You can even add velcro on the inside if wanted.
Would be handy to store extras like a mud jacket or rain cover for the bag or anything that is waterproof. Hole in the bottom to let out water that gets in.
Maybe even a net to store those washed socks or buff to get dry.

Thanks Punisher.
I feel much the same and am really chuffed with our progress.
The design we have settled on for the barrel bags is improved, both functionally and aesthetically and the feedback I have had is really encouraging.
However I now need to start selling and get a proper marketing strategy in place...there`s no problem with the product, manufacturing or price....it`s merely a marketing issue.

Hey Peter, fixed you up with an avatar. Let me know if you want something different.
A F'ugly is a different sort of bike, the 1150 is boring and the 1100s makes me smile.

You must know I love bags. Think yours is very functional. We'll be around your valley third week of April. Will pop around.
