For those of you who have played the Canmore Synthetic and the Canmore Hybrid, how would you compare them in terms of handling moisture?

The Hybrid breathes much better. The material is stiffer and doesn't flop like the older style green Gore-Tex. This is the first synthetic bag I've been able to play with no MCS on the drones - only a simple tube trap with a Trap-Dri.

I posted here within the past few days under two topics re the Canmore hybrid. I gushed about how super well it has performed for me lately in s few cold weather gigs....with tube trap/trap dri

I was remiss to not equally mention I was playing my Mccallum acetyl pipes set up with MG White Mamba reeds.

Rock solid. And a 99% dry bag when checking at home later. Brilliant.

Anyone know if these are available as tie in? I'm not a grommet fan myself.

In my experience, the drone grommet design and drone locations on the Canmore Hybrid pipe bags are better than on the Bannatyne. The drone positions and drone angle are better for me with the Canmore. The Canmore Hybrid bag has better vibrancy and harmonics. YMMV.

How many people have tried traditional tie-in of the chanter stock on the Canmore Hybrid? I'm interested in dispensing of the metal hose clamp for the chanter stock and using a traditional tie-in for the chanter stock. If anyone has tried this, please share your experience.

Thanks.

Yes, it's on their website (a non-grommet version for tie-in).

I tie in the chanter stock on my Canmore Hybrid. Works great! I don't trust the o-ring and clamp myself. Always worried that the o-ring isn't completely sealed in the groove.

Thanks for your reply. Glad this works well. I'm going to traditional tie-in for chanter stock also.

This is good to hear. If I have more funds soon (spent much of my slush fund already getting set back up again) I might seriously consider this bag, maybe I can find a used medium to try first.

Maybe it's just myself but I've always tied in all my chanter stocks. I did just buy a set of hose clamps though to get up and running this time.

Fantastic, thank you.

Again if I can get ahold of a used Cannmore hybrid medium then I can get a better idea if it'll work for me enough to save up and purchase a non-grommeted new bag.

I currently have the Canmore with the rubber collars. I have long arms and my hand position isn't comfortable. Grips and birls are crisp on the PC and sloppy on the pipes. If I go the bag without the collars, I can adjust and tie them in a better position for my hands.

Any issues tying in the stocks? Any harder than a hide bag?

Thanks
