I thought that it was great fun. It was my first foray into making bags. It was a great first project.
Very nice kit. Straight forward setup once you get the hang of using a sewing machine. Love that you can adjust the size of the pouch if you need a more custom size.
As always, great materials and great service from RSBTR.
I've now made 7 of these, 2 of each size and then another extra medium one. The kits are great and the pouches end up being nice handy organizers. I use the larger one for my GoPro, and batteries, the medium one is great for my battery bank and cables, and the small one for keys and/or other doodads.
If you're new to DIY and/or sewing, I'd suggest starting with the stuff sack kit, then these zipper pouches, then the ZPP kits, and then the hip belt kits if you were going to try to make all of them. To me, that seemed to be the progression in level of difficulty.
Zipper Pouch Kit
I purchased two zipper pouch kits. I am an experienced sewer. I put both pouches together in less than an hour. I didn't have access to the instructions on The internet because I live way up in Northern Michigan off grid. The pouches were very intuitive. For someone who is less experienced with sewing it might be better to have some printed instructions but hey how many live off grid! All in all a great project the pouches are so tight they stay blown up like balloons unless I press the air out of them. I am impressed with the material and will love using my large pouch for snacks and maps while backpacking. Keep up the good work Kyle and gang. Would you consider carrying more technical clothing type material? I know I would be interested.
