Padding

Photo of Padding OptionsWe use a polyester fiber fill which is quilted to soft yet tough black nylon lining (guaranteed not to bleed color). We have not seen any deterioration in our padding since we started making covers in 1992, unlike foam padding which can disintegrate in time. The photo shows the difference between single and double. The single is approximately 3/8″ thick (a little less than a centimeter) and the double padding is approximately 5/8″ (about 1 1/2 centimeters). Our padding feels more like a glorified moving blanket and folds up easily to store away.

Handle Openings

All openings are reinforced, so they will not fray or come apart like common bound openings. Additional openings for jacks, etc., cost $10 each.

Duffel/Briefcase Style Wrap-Around Handles (for Clamshell Gig Bag)

Photo of Duffel Bags Webbing strapping wraps all the way around the bag to keep the weight off of the zipper. Two handles come together at the top with a Velcro grip (like a duffel bag). Can handle heavy weights up to 75# (34 kg). Let us know if your gear weighs more than 75# and we can discuss ways to possibly accommodate. (Formally known as the Briefcase Gig Bag)

Molded Plastic Handle

As a primary handle (on top when you’re carrying your gig bag), the molded plastic handle is great if your gear is 20# (9 kg) or less. For more weight than that, there’s concern that the weight will put stress on the zipper and it’s recommended that you use the Duffel / Briefcase Style Wrap-Around handles instead.

Sometimes it’s nice to have an extra handle or two on your Gig Bag. They can handle weights up to 75# (35 kg) but do let us know if your gear is over 60# (27 kg) so we are sure to add reinforcement.

Handle Flaps to cover opening with Velcro

Not listed as an option in the cart, but available for $10 each. You can add them to the cart as Custom Work Discussed with Studio Slips and just be sure to put a note on the order that you want them.

Pockets

For additional storage space, we can add an external zippered pocket. Pockets can be padded or non-padded.

Bottom Closing Strap for Cover

We can add a webbed strap which is sewn to the bottom back of your cover and secures with Velcro to the front to keep it snugly in place.

Leather Strips on the bottom of Clamshell Gig Bag

For extra protection, we can reinforce the bottom of your bag with heavy duty leather. The strips are 1/8″ thick, 5″ wide, and run from front to back on both sides of the bottom of the bag.

Shoulder Pad with Shoulder Strap for Clamshell Gig Bag

Can be added to Clamshell Gig Bags
