I made a minor mistake putting the buckle straps on the inside rather than the outside of the bag. Even with that mistake, mine is pretty waterproof. I doubt the mistake affects this, since I fold it over three times anyway. I filled it with water and it leaks only a little out of the closure. I thought the buckle should have been slightly bigger to fit the strap, but they responded promptly that it was the right buckle. (I still think a bigger one would be a bit better). It's crinkly, unlike the commercial bags I own, but it's super light. I got the tie-dye pattern. Colors were slightly more muted than I expected, perhaps because the fabric is translucent. This may help for finding items inside though.
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review Bill! DCF is definitely crinkly. We hope you enjoy your new roll top bag!
So the folks at Ripstop know what they’re doing when they offer these cool kits for us to try. They know it leads to “more!!” I did mine in the “coloring book” pattern and love it.

As a novice sewer I was intimidated by the idea of investing a lot of $$ in a difficult project. This kit was perfect! The video walked me right through it and I now have the confidence to try a larger version.
Awesome! We love to hear that MBC! These kits are a great way to get your feet wet with working with new and more expensive materials. Let us know if you have any questions about future projects, we're here to help!
