Rather shameless plug I'm in the process of making a range of tubular bags from leather watch this space I'm hoping to have a few at the next Leeds steampunk market or at the very least one for demonstration and more at steampunks in space in Leicester

if you have any leather working supplies you could always make one to your personal liking. I know myself I want to make one that unfolds to reveal stuff inside of it. Inspired by this lovely piece of work I found on DA.

Sorry to drag this thread back from the dead, but I stumbled across this Etsy seller and their selection of rather nice looking bags. I'm seriously considering getting one as I could use a good con bag. Any thoughts?

That's incredibly cheap for a leather bag - when I made my own the cost of materials came to about £50.

Thanks for that link H.W.!
According to all of the reviews, it looks like a very good product. Might be buying one myself for a present.

I used something like that for school when I was about 8 or so.

Yeah, it does have the vibe of either a schoolboy bookbag, or a military pouch. Its one of the reasons I really like the two pouch design.

Sorely tempted by this one as well, https://www.etsy.com/listing/103234277/leather-messenger-bag-satchel-vintage?ref=related-6 since its a few inches larger. Trouble is the small pouch in front isn't nearly as useful as the two large ones on the previous link. Such a quandary!

Oh Herbert.  No quandary here.  Make one the way you want it.  You are a maker of goggles, Why not move on to leather things for yourself.  You have the creativity after all - use the two bags as inspiration and then you can have exactly what you want to have.

While I certainly appreciate your confidence in my abilities. I don't think I'm quite that skilled yet. Smiley

Bags, being little more than a cuboid or set of cubiods, are actually very easy to make. I made my own (shameless link here) and it came out fairly well, despite being my first attempt at leathercraft. Go for it!

One needs not too much still with.... A KIT!

I love leather kits. I started on them. All the holes are punched so you really just need patience and free time.
They're very customizable as well.

The leather bag I mentioned previously arrived safe and sound today, and let me add my compliments to those on the site. It's well made, looks good (even moreso once its been aged a bit) and has the required leathery smell. I couldn't be happier.

Get one.
