Not weighed it yet but lets just say it feels 'solid'. The quality does feel good and it appears that something might have been done with the sealing but I suppose we'll have to wait and see how good that is ;)

If you haven't already, I'd get some tape wrapped round those tubes where the velcro straps are.

I have had the tape on stand by waiting for it to arrive. You know what I'll be doing this evening.

Yes. Bit odd with No logo, having a logo. I've got one of Graham's bags too though and have been really impressed with it. Quite reasonably priced too, although I got mine a couple of years ago so they may be more expensive now.

It should have been £90 + postage but Graham gave me a bit of a discount, I think because I was a returning customer. I had custom options of 2 zips and a removable divider.

First impressions are very good, it seems very sturdy and has a feel of quality about it. The straps were all in the right places (as per my template) and are long so can be cut to size easily enough.

EDIT: About the logo, he started off with no logo and they were "just bags" from what I could see. I guess then he started getting asked to make more and things moved on and developed.

UN54 BB , two monkii cages and a rab silwing tarp (from backpackinglight who gave me enough 1.5 dyneema to bicycle it for nothing, about £10 worth and a free DVD on tarps, nice).
