Default Re: Bag Sizing Confusion

I wouldn’t move things forward on the bag unless they were tied further back than normal to begin with.

I’ve acquired various used L&M bags over the years because I love them. A couple were cut normally. One was cut further back and that causes the bag to impinge on my arm. One was cut forward and that basically causes more moisture to hit the chanter reed. Really, “normal” is perfect. Perhaps Gord over at Island Bagpipe can chime in, I use his specifications.

Gannaway bags are excellent. I play a medium at 5’11” 175 lbs. The grommets make tie in easy but I would pass because they’re bulky. Zipper or no, up to you.

I haven’t found a suitable replacement/alternative to L&M, though I haven’t looked real hard.
