So, I was SO excited to make this, that I did so basically the minute it arrived at my house. The bag is so beautiful (I'll post it in finished projects.) I chose the Serpens Nebula design. It does come with a white margin around the print. I chose to leave it on, stitch my lines just inside the edge of the print, then trim before taping the seams. I didn't trim it from the top edge, as once you roll the stiffening web piece in, it isn't visible on the finished product. Fair warning, double, triple check before you stitch on the final grosgrain/buckle piece, I was hasty and sewed one on facing the wrong direction. I was able to remove it, but it leaves permanent holes in your dry bag, which I had to rip out some additional stitching and use extra tape to repair, but it's still there aesthetically. Overall, this kit is a GREAT value for your money, and you get the coolest dry bag around.
The Roll Top Dry Bag Kit I ordered was fantastic. Easy to make, the print on the Dyneema looks fantastic, and I even got a sticker. The video instructions on the company's YouTube page it easy to follow along as I made my bag. I am already planning on ordering another one. It really is a fantastic DIY Kit.
Really like how lite weight and durable these bags are!
We made these bags specifically for bikepacking. We're trying them out this weekend. They were easy to assemble and they came out great. RBTR is an awesome company. Quality .
The kit came with the fabric basically glued together, folded in half. After some reading of other reviews we were able to determine separating the sheet shouldnt cause a problem, but it did leave a sticky residue. The printed graphic needed to be trimmed to size.
Otherwise every thing was included in the kid with plenty of extra grosgrain and zipper. Very nice finished zipper pulls were included!
