This fabric was perfect for this use-- much more body than the ripstop nylon I used for the first draft. Nothing got wet even though I didn't tape the seams. It's a basic clamshell bag with a couple of storage pockets on the front for stuff I'd need in the airport and on the subway. This fabric sewed well on a Bernina 1008 home machine up to four layers thick. I screwed up in a couple of places but the extra holes don't show until about 6 inches away. Bright blue color made me easy for my husband to spot in crowds. Fully packed the bag is sturdy enough to sit on (I just put some 1/2" purse feet on the bottom). It did catch some scuffing as I leaned against concrete and brick walls. It just gave the bag some character, IMO. My 20-yr-old son wants one now.
Thanks for the review! This is a great pack fabric and we are happy you were able to make a bag that is perfect for travel. The scuffing definitely gives it characters and lets people know you actually use it! That is one of the best parts of MYOG-ing , sharing it with other people.
Easy to work with. Makes great pouches and gear.
We're glad you love VX21 as much as we do! Happy Making!
Thanks for leaving us a review Andres! Enjoy making with the X-Pac® VX21!
I ordered VX21 and VX41 fabrics. Both came in great condition. I chose the folded shipping option and the fabric still looks great without creases. I’ll order more fabric in the future assuming prices don’t go crazy.
Thanks for leaving a review Justin! You can't go wrong with X-Pac fabric. We'd love to see photos of your creation, be sure to tag us on social media!
I just sewed a lightweight sack for some crampons. It’s easy to cut and sews fine with a standard machine. I hope it’s as tough as it looks.
Thanks for leaving a review Donald! The VX21 is a heavy-duty fabric great for a crampon bag, enjoy!
