I made my own pipe bag
 
It's comfortable, and it manages the water, though I do pull the chanter and drones out after playing. It's two layers; I wanted the outer layer to be protected from internal moisture, not only to protect the design of the outer layer but to maintain optimal tone longer. The tone turned out to be quite resonant, and a boost to the bass drone and top hand.

My take-away is that there is nothing cheap or easy about bag-making!!

So, here it is! Giddy up!

Wow! You don't want to 'hide' it with a bag cover, it'd be like covering a great tat with boring clothes.

I wonder if it's possible to play "The Magnificent Seven" on pipes??
