Like many of us, I have experienced the hoary old piping expert, dripping with Gold Medals and accumulated honours, holding forth: "now, young pipers, one thing that is often not realised is the importance of the bag cover. It must be nice and tight, so that when the bag is blown up the cover maintains pressure on it, which improves your stability."

Seems reasonable.

However, I've also experienced a different hoary old piping expert, also dripping with medals and clasps powder horns: "now, young pipers, a thing I often see is a bag cover that is too tight. It's very important that the bag can freely expand to its full size, allowing you maintain stability."
