    Toby: Got another new business here, Rogue Panda Designs, which I just started up. It's my own one-man show based out of Flagstaff, AZ. Right now I'm making custom framebags, seat bags and panniers, but I'm open to other custom projects. Thanks!

    Hi Toby,

    Would you mind adding Apidurato the list? We produce saddle, frame and handlebar packs, and we've just launched!

    Here's a sneaky pic of our regular saddle pack:

    Hey,

    Could you add me to the list? I'm a part time bag/accessory maker in Kansas City. I do about 95% custom work but, I do have some "stock" sized half bags for CX/Gravel bikes.

    As a former K.C. resident (nearly 30 years).... it's cool to see someone there getting in on the game. I'm also a bag maker but I now live on the other side of the planet. You might see a few of my friends roaming around with hats or bags from me though. Still some connections there even after almost 10 years being gone. Do you have a Flickr page or something? I'd like to see more of your handlebar bag. What are you using as a lateral stiffener?

    I've seen your stuff before. Looks great! We probably know a few of the same people here in KC.

    I don't have a Flickr page but, may think about setting one up as my website continues to develop. On the harness I use a fiberglass rod in two locations and closed cell foam to provide stiffness. Making more harnesses is on my to do list and I'll have more pictures when I make some.

    Updated URL

    Would you be so kind as to update the URL for Rogue Panda Designs? I made a new website the other day, it's at:

    Rogue Panda Designs | Innovative bike gear made in Flagstaff, AZ

    Thanks!

    Also, it might be kind of cool to list the locations of the companies after their links, so people can see who is closest to them. Buy local, after all. I'm willing to put in the leg work of looking up where everyone is from; send me a PM if you'd like me to do that.

    Your link is updated.

    As far as where manufacturers are located, I'm not sure that it really matters. I'm guessing that people will buy based on reputation more than anything. But I don't see any reason not to list it either. So feel free to send me a list of locations, and I'll add them.

    Bikepacking gear bags - who makes 'em?

    Just my 2 cents. Location is a consideration as well as reputation. I prefer to buy local as often as possible, even if the product is a bit less refined. Hopefully increased sales and communication can help refine the product.

    Bag comparison spreadsheet

    I started to put together a comparison of bags and was thinking it would be good to make it collaborative. I have a Google Spreadsheet here:
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing
    which is editable.

    Hope this might be helpful!

    Excellent, I have added my seat bags to the list. I still need to weigh and calculate capacity but they're there.

    I'm guessing we do... I still really miss K.C. singletrack. It's the best I've ever ridden anywhere in the world!

    As it happens, we're making plans to be back in K.C. for a few days in September after doing the Smoke and Fire 400 in Idaho.

    Keep up the great work!

    Many Thanks for compiling the data on all the different bags! I didn't realize how good of a deal mine was!
    I've just updated mine with the weight of 13.3oz

    Hi Toby! I came across RockGeist when I was searching etsy. Their website (Custom Bikepacking Gear | Built in Winston-Salem, NC) says they are based out of Winston-Salem, NC and they make both custom and off-the-rack bags - lead time is listed on the home page as 2.5 weeks right now.

    Nick any way to buy from you on a secure site? Having your cart system on a normal connection without SSL (eg http:// and not encrypted https://) is a no go in my book. Thanks!

    This is a vaguely bikepacking question. Can someone point me to a maker willing to do custom work? I tried emailing a few makers that claim to do custom work and got no response.

    I would like to have a top tube pad/gas tank combo of some sort made, or maybe just a top tube pad. Nobody makes an off the shelf pad that is long/big enough.

    Before you make fun of the top tube pad, the frame in question has a very odd pointy top tube. '92ish Mongoose, ffectionately referred to as the Toblerone top tube bike.

    Thanks for any help!

    Addition to the list...STASHERS

    Hey would love to be added to the list - I'm a small bike gear company called STASHERS out of LA. I make The TubeTop bike tube coolers. They are modular, insulated lightweight bags that keep beers cold and coffee hot. Also great for just about any type of storage: food, tools, extra layers. I don't do custom but these are an affordable and versatile option to add to your collection. They come in a medium 15" 3 can and small 10" 2 can version with a large 20" version on the way. They fit standard cans with coozies on them, TallBoys, Bombers, water bottles - anything under 3" diameter. $20 - $25.

    They work well with other bikepacking gear as well:

    Carradice

    There's always the old-school Carradice brand.

    Carradice of Nelson - bike bags, saddle bags and waterproof panniers

    I've been pleased with my Camper Longflap, which is holding maybe a quarter to a third of its capacity in these photos.

    Bikepacking gear bags - who makes 'em?-img_1174.jpg

    Perhaps not high-tech, but waxed cotton has a lot of fans in the bushcraft community.

    While the Camper Longflap is wide, the width is carried up high. That way, it doesn't get in the way, hitting rocks and branches, like a set of panniers would.

    Ask, and you shall receive. Here it is loaded up, but before I taped the handlebars. I was carrying enough stuff that I needed to use the longflap on the Camper during that trip:
