Types of bag available include the sheepskin, which is most suitable for pipers who play on a regular basis. It will dissipate moisture better than the cowhide. The cowhide would be better in hot climates or where the bagpipe is not being played much as it retains moisture and does not dry out.
PLEASE NOTE We also offer a bag fitting service at a nominal cost. Bags can be made in either sheepskin or hide and with a straight or a swan neck. REMEMBER to let us know your preferences when ordering - use the drop down box.
