Blue Cuben Fiber Drybags. on 12/03/2010 11:39:26 MST Print View

Hey Everyone,

My cuben drybags are out of stock for a while since I am out of material. Cuben Techs current lead time is 4-6 weeks so rather then wait that long I was thinking of going with a colored material. They have a really nice blue that I was thinking of using. I am pretty sure its the same color that Granite Gear is using with their Uberlight drysacks. The color will be a little more pronounced due to the thicker material I use. Before I pull the trigger I want to know if anyone is interested in this color?

Additionally I have sold quite a bit of drybags over the past six months. I want to know if everyone that has purchased one of my bags has been happy with the quality of workmanship along with the bags size and weight?

Thanks for all the feedback,
Lawson

I like blue. I'd buy at least one.

I try to have all different colors in my pack so it's easier to spot things, so the more colors of cuben the better.

Hi Lawson,

It's Chris again. As you may know, I'm interested in the 2 smallest sizes, 6x9 / 10x15. Just lemme know when I can make the purchase!

I would be willing to take blue. I have to set up the family with dry bags and have been putting it off.

Excellent stuff!! on 12/04/2010 18:14:09 MST Print View

I just received my "Ditty Kit" set of four bags in the mail today. (Insured, too!)

They are beautiful! Obviously well crafted with perfect edges and corners. All bonded material...no stitching or seam tape to leak. Buckles securely fasten. Haven't tried a water test, but they hold air after rolling the tops.

Here are the weights that my little scale came up with:
6X9 = .50 oz.
8X12 = .60 oz.
10X15 = .80 oz.
12X20 = 1.02 oz.

The various sizes are JUST what I needed!
Thanks Lawson!

I think I am going to go with the blue cuben until more standard gray comes in stock so I should have bags available by the end of this coming week.

Lawson,

I purchased your 16.5x16" Pack liner when it was on sale last week and I was blow away by the quality when it arrived yesterday. It was exactly the size I was looking for to slip inside my MLD Burn pack. This is the only item of cuben that I own, however I immediately took note of the quality taped seams, attention to details in the folded bottom corners, and no errors in the construction from what my eyes could see. The buckle for the closure appears very durable and well incorporated. A+. I'll be looking to pick up a stuff sac in the future. I've yet to take it out and use it, but will definitely be putting the old plastic packliner in the closet.

Blue Cuben on 12/13/2010 11:28:33 MST Print View

Yeah, i would go for blue Cuben--having different colors will, if anything, help me stay better organized. I have a set already, and they are airtight (haven't tried in water yet) and very professionally done. Any chance you could have them done in time for Christmas? I think my son would love them, especially since he lives in Washington state.

I am still waiting for the material. There was a shipping delay so I should have it soon. I will give a heads up once the bags are ready to ship.
