In the last year or so I’ve gotten a chance to learn how to use a commercial sewing machine and started making small hip pouches and cycling oriented bags. They’re all made out of 1000D Cordura and industrial tarpaulin which is just another way of saying thicker grade sailing tarp. They’re pretty water resistant although depending on how hard the rain is falling there’s always the chance for little bits of moisture to get in. When testing various versions of these I haven’t really had a problem. You’d really have to jump into a pool while wearing one for them to have serious problems with water.
It should be noted that these are test models so generally speaking the stitching will be strong but not aesthetically perfect. Aside from that everything is made by me in my Bushwick apartment in NYC. If you’re looking for a custom bag hit me up and I can see if that’s possible. Thanks!
