Consultation Style

Based on 5 reviews Leave a review

When creating a bespoke frame bag it’s important to get everything right.

Everyone has a slightly different method to how you pack. This style is something that develops with each adventure. Different factors such as where you go riding, the weather conditions, your kit, what bike you have all factor into this. 

This consultation offers a one-to-one service where we can help you make informed decisions. This is a relaxed chat were we talk over the functional side to elements of the bag and how they relate to your packing set-up. Then we can dive deeper into other factors like fabric colours and the individual properties. The aim is to cover all elements in a straightforward way that give you the best frame bag for you.

This consultation will be a meeting at our design studio in Edinburgh or taken over the phone. You can ask questions about the process and we can get the perfect frame bag designed and made for your bike. 

We will create your bespoke frame bag from a physical template you supply. Template guidelines can be found here. We request that your template be ready when you place your order so we can provide informed advice during this consultation. 

At the end of the consultation your frame bag specifications will be confirmed. We will send over a payment link and confirm production lead time. Our lead time is 6 to 8 weeks from final order confirmation and payment received.

WHAT FABRIC FOR YOUR BAG?

X-PAC® vs CORDURA® vs DYNEEMA®

There is no bad choice, each style of fabric has different properties which allows you to choice what works best for you. We have fabric recommendations for custom frame bags available on the specifications page.


X-PAC® VX21 - VX42

Diamond effect dacron fibres and a 0.25mm PET film are sandwiched between a 210, 250 and 420 denier nylon face respective of the specification and a 50 denier polyester backing. A DWR* coating is applied to the face of the fabric helping water to bead off easily.

Black - VX21 comes with a PFC free water repellant finish (DWR). All of the VX21 series caries the cleenTec® seal. It is manufactured in 100% climate neutral production facilities using 100% electrical renewable energy.


X-PAC® RX30 

This specification comes with a 300d 100% recycled polyester woven face. Backed with black X-PLY® polyester yarn and a clear polyester film. 

RX series caries the cleenTec® seal. Features a 100% recycled PET face made from locally sourced recycled PET bottles and is manufactured in 100% climate neutral production facilities using 100% electrical renewable energy.


X-PAC® RVX25

Diamond effect dacron fibres and a 0.25mm PET film are sandwiched between a  250 denier UV resistant dyed polyester face and a 50 denier polyester backing. A DWR* coating is applied to the face of the fabric helping water to bead off easily.

Comes with a PFC free water repellant finish and is recyclable.


X-PAC® LiteSkin® 07 - LiteSkin® 21 - LiteSkin® 42

These fabrics are constructed with a non-woven polyester face coated with pigmented resin and DWR* coating. This non-woven construction method give the fabric a smooth finish and high abrasion resistance.

LS07 - Is the lightest waterproof, abrasion resistant fabric from Dimension Polyant. Constructed with 70D nylon with a ripstop weave backing. Best suited to ultralight applications.

LS21 - This fabric uses the same 210d nylon as the VX21, but on the backside instead of the face.

LS42 - This specification of LiteSkin® is constructed from a 420d nylon woven backing which is the same as the VX42 and combined with the smooth non-woven polyester face. Resulting is a strong high abrasion resistant fabric.


X-PAC® X50

This fabric uses a 500d Cordura® face fabric with a DWR* coating backed with black X-PLY® polyester yarn and a clear polyester film. This fabric is highly abrasion resistant, tear resistant, high tensile and waterproof.


CORDURA® 500d - 1000d

These fabrics are constructed from high tenacity nylon 6,6 filament fibre in a woven construction face with a water-repellent coated backing. These fabrics are highly abrasion resistant and excellent tear strength.


DYNEEMA® CT9HK.18/blkwov6 - CT9HK.18/wov6

The world’s strongest fibre in a composite hybrid. The Dyneema® fibre is layered on one side with a thin transparent polyester film and on the other face a woven 150 denier polyester. This makes the fabric abrasion resistant, a high tear-resistance and waterproof. Regular folding whitens and softens the fabric which does not affect the technical properties, but give it a unique finish that changes the longer you use it. There is an additional cost for a fabric upgrade to Dyneema®.

WEIGHT COMPARISON

Factors to consider when choosing what materials for your bag.

The manufacturing process of your chosen materials will decide the properties, then you can style your bag with colour combinations.

Wet Weight -

  • Laminated fabrics like the Dyneema® and X-Pac® options are sealed this means they do not absorb water keeping weight consistent if they get wet.
  • Cordura® fabrics have an exposed woven nylon face that will allow water to absorb, as the water-repellent/waterproof coatings are on the backside. This means when your bag gets wet especially if you are riding for longer trips your bag will weight more and take longer to dry.

Cleaning -

  • X-Pac® and Dyneema® are sealed and similar to water absorption these fabrics are easier to wash dirt off because of their construction.
  • The woven face to the Cordura® fabrics can be cleaned with water and may require gentle brushing to remove all dirt.

Abrasion -

  • We recommend Cordura® for areas like the edge of a frame bag as these fabrics have high abrasion resistance.
  • The X-Pac® LiteSkin® series offers very high abrasion resistance due to the unwoven and smooth face design.
  • The X-Pac® VX and RVX series fabrics abrasion increases as the corresponding number increases. Example VX42 has a higher abrasion resistance over the VX21.
  • The Dyneema® fabric we stock has the best abrasion resistance available of the Dyneema® hybrid fabrics. The fabric is incredibly strong while being waterproof and light weight.

DWR - Is a durable water repellant coating that is applied to the face of the fabric that helps water to bead off and creates a barrier preventing water from absorbing into the fabric.
