Default Hybrid bags?

A hybrid bag is made in two layers, right? A leather layer and a synthetic layer, correct? Which surface is inside?

Just curious.

Hybrid pipe bag: synthetic layer inside. Leather layer outside.

The purpose of the synthetic material was to do away with the necessity to use seasoning. The leather outer layer was to give back to us older guys, the rigidity and weight that we were used to having in a pipe bag.

2 models: 1 with, and 1 without grommets (same grommets as bannatyne). The one without grommets has the drone and blowstock holes marked out for you to cut yourself.

both have a zipper.

Have read that pipers with the Scotian have trouble getting a bagcover to fit properly? Perhaps the cover makers have not made them for this newer bag, yet? Anyone with experience with the Scotian bag and getting a good fitting bagcover?

This is a good point...........all bag covers should fit the bag correctly, an ill-fitting bag will restrict the natural shape of the bag and restrict airflow.

Better going for a looser fitting cover than one that looks as if it's been sprayed on.

Don't believe everything you read. I've had no problems with off the shelf covers not fitting. Anyone that does should contact their retailer who will investigate and take up any issues with either the cover maker or L&M on your behalf.
