Thanks very much for your fine review, and constructive criticism. I've learned a lot reading this and the Kata review.
I'm a bagaholic!
thank you for your kind words... i tend to be a bit too critical... but it's an occupational hazard, i guess...
perhaps one of these days, i'll pull my resources together and have a bag custom made one of these days...
sadly, none of my sewing machines can handle the thick materials.
