Use sturdy, stiff water resistant fabrics. We recommend nylon Cordura®. Some outerwear fabrics, canvas, and some upholstery fabrics can also be used. Leather can be used for the saddle bags, but we do not give instructions for working with leather. Use nylon or polypropylene webbing where called for. Edge binding can be foldover braid, grosgrain ribbon, or other edge trim products.
