Default Seeking recommendations/advice about choice of uilleann pipe-bag

I've recently upgraded to a 3/4 set which I bought as 'sticks and stocks', for which of course I must choose a bag.

But which bag?

Looking at the websites *, I'm spoiled for choice: styles associated with various pipemakers (Rowsome, Woof, O'Brien, Froment.), bagmakers (L&M, Fraser-Warnock/Jacky Boyce. Thompson) variations on 'standard' designs, bags for pipes in particular keys (Bennett lists different bags for pipes in 'D' and B#/C) and of course the opportunity to submit your own design!

I'd describe the bag on my practice set as "long-rectangular 'standard' " which - if I thought about it at all when I 'built' my practice set - I probably chose because it was similar in profile to the L&M 'elkhide' GHB bags that I've been playing since childhood.

I'm strictly a 'leather bag' man, I can sort the neck length out by myself, and I intensely dislike the look of 'riveted' bags, but I'd appreciate hearing your opinions about the various styles and shapes vis-a-vis holding and playing a 3/4 set.
