I was wondering if any of you good folk have tried the new Bannatyne Inverted Bag, i am a left handed piper here in New Zealand and have ordered one as i find it really difficult to get good left hand bags, and i need a spare 'just in case'!

Currently using the synthetic/hide left hand bag for 2 years now, and i am just getting jittery i suppose, added that to curiosity of what Bannatyne claim it can do.

Any thoughts?

Craig or Gary at Bannatyne will be only to glad to answer any questions, better going to the man himself rather than ask someone who hasn't even seen / used it.

Waiting on one getting posted to me, but until then am a bit like you, in the dark, what I do like is the direct tying in, was never 100% totally convinced with the self fitting collars ( although they seemed to work ok, just my dinosaur attitude maybe lol ), being able to tie the bag directly to the stocks will have a bit more flexibility too in positioning your drones, chanter & blow-stick stocks.

I use this bag myseld and I am on a medium sized and to be honest it is rather superior in my opinion to other bags which I have tried over the last 20 years of piping.. I find it is much easier to use and more hardy too. Not sure of the left handed version but I am sure it is no different to the quality that I receive from them as a right handed version..

So, more than a year later, what do you think? I just got one, and the quality is really good (and the look; I wasn't expecting the material to be green!), but I found it quite difficult to tie in; tough to pull the material around the stock to tie with, compared with a hide bag. Swan neck could have been a bit more swanned (trying to get rid of chanter fling), but the feel, weight, and seal are great.
