    @miguel
    will you make me one??
  • MiguelMiguel Riding Level: 2,322
    I can, I'm leaving for vacation on Friday AM. Is it worth $20? I think I have some black cordura or xpac(same stuff revelate, etc uses)
  • jerryjerry Riding Level: 4,339
    shit bro I'd buy an xpac hip pouch for my small things
  • KendraKendra Riding Level: 1,356
    I'd absolutely pay $20! Whenever you've got spare time.
  • MiguelMiguel Riding Level: 2,322
    Ok, how big? To fit 1 tall can sideways or 2 regular cans side by side? Do you want it lined? It will weigh more if lined but it might be more water resistant(like, maybe you are just barely waist deep in still water?) I'll probably add a little pocket inside for cards/cash and maybe a key loop if you have a carabiner or something like that. Standard width belt loops, maybe wide enough to fit a krypto mini. Velcro closure?

    so, i just want to be clear here about these techy materials. i'll introduce you to a couple here and explain what makes them better or worse.

    xpac polyant (vx02/07/21/42/etc) is a sailcloth materia, it is a durable and strong fabric that is able to stand up to winds and not rip while weighing less than a comparable strength-to-weight ratio material (cordura, rip stop nylon, etc). when not used as a sailcloth this stuff is good for stuff sacks as it will not (usually) rip anywhere before the seams go. this is great, right? well, it has a life and it's generally shorter than other fabrics. the xpac is a laminated rip stop fabric and after heavy use (see: 1 season as a frequently used handlebar bag) it will start to delaminate and 'crack' (not really crack but there are 'veins' for lack of a better word). the positive? it's light. it probably weighs half what cordura weighs.

    which brings be to cordura. cordura (brand name) is your favorite material. you might know cordura from such bags reload, baileyworks, chrome, black star and every other messenger bag company that was awesome in 2005-6-7-8-9-10. cordura is a plain woven poly fabric that looks a lot like canvas. in the olden days they used cordura for sailcloth but then they logged on to weight weenies and started shaving grams. cordura has a great strength-to-weight ratio, is generally cleanable and only breaks down on misuse/abuse. it weighs more than the xpac stuff generally, but there are different weights as well.

    in my opinion, if you are going to want to keep something and get a lot of use out of it then i would choose the more burly fabric (cordura). if you are concerned with weight then use the lighter fabric (xpac). don't expect an xpac bag to live as long as a cordura bag, don't expect a cordura bag to weigh as little as the xpac bag.

    but really, this is the same kind of comparison you would have when talking about carbon vs steel frames or alloy vs carbon wheels. strength-to-weight and durability.

    I also have a Chrome hip pouch if anyone is interested. It's nicely made, I just don't use it nearly enough to justify keeping it. Used it for a while as a tool pouch in my main bag. US made, water resistant, belt loops, u-lock holster, inner zip pocket. 1000d cordura, tarp lined, grey with white panel.

    FOUND:

    WTB (no longer): Road wheelset 130 QR rear/100 QR front
    Tires included would be fantastic.

    Would prefer a freehub for a cassette.

    Campy rear wheel with a campy 10sp cassette would be really dandy.

    Not looking at spending much money. Just trying to get a cheap road bike together.

    WTB: Also considering buying a complete (or semi-complete) fixed or SS bike. Must have brake compatibility (at least front and rear). Fender tabs are a big plus. Cantilevers even better. Wide tire clearance? YES, that'd be great. However, I'd settle for less.

    Again, not looking at spending a lot of money. Would even be happy for an old Kilo TT or the like plus a shit fixed/free wheelset.

    I am 5'9" with short legs. So a 52-54cm frame would be best.
