Default Re: Bag Sizing Confusion

There can be many reasons for your arm pain and the size of the bag is only one factor. Your posture, blowstick length and muscle tension are more likely causes. Years ago I went to a physical therapist for similar reasons and, although he was unfamiliar with playing the bagpipes, he was able to spot causes and give me exercises and strategies. These worked.

My bag recommendation is a Gannaway. Plain, with no grommets or zipper. Super easy to maintain, very comfortable, highly air efficient and no stupid plumbing and kitty litter. Medium would likely work for you, but that's your decision of course.
