Pipe/tobacco pouch help...

Post by JMG » Sun Jan 28, 2018 11:05 pm

Working on a pipe and tobacco pouch that I could make and sell for fairly cheap. I'm thinking maybe $12-15 bucks. My question is do you guys think folks might be interested in something like this/worth my time? I made one very similar a few years ago for myself and it has held up really nicely.

The pipe pouch is a soft felt so it won't scratch up your pipe and the other pouch is for tobacco, which could be stored loose as the faux leather will not dry it out. The design I show in the video I sewed in a little separate pocket for a light and tamper so they wouldn't scratch the pipe.

Other questions for you...What do you like or do not like about this thing? Is the color/material alright? Any improvements you can think of that wouldn't be to time consuming to make as that would make it cost more (I'd really like to shoot for 12 bucks, but may put it at 15 depending on how the design ends up. My personal pouch just uses a leather cord to wrap a couple times around and tie, but is there any other/better ideas you guys have?

These could be made with any thread color and materials could vary somewhat depending on availability and pricing.

Anyway, this could just be a fat waste of time.

Sold. Seriously, put me on the list for the first one.

I could use one, especially for use while hunting. Could have used it yesterday in my pack in the duck blind. A small snap for closure would be good. How does the material handle moisture?

Another, idea ... are you able to stitch monograms on the front flap?

Or, If I sent you a tooled heavy weight leather panel could that be stitched onto the front of the flap?

Handles moisture fine...at least it handle the jungle humidity with no issues.

I wonder if the lighter pouch would be better on the bottom so one could roll-up the pouch.

Sorry mate, I don't have any way to do monograms and don't have leather tools...though there are those here on CPS that do that sort of work that could probably help you out.

Impressive design. Very functional and practical. And marketable. I wonder if you could patent it. A durable nylon zipper for the tobacco storage area might enhance it.

Looks good.

Any chance of a button and loop to keep it closed? Perhaps a snap? Regardless, add me to the list.

Yeah, I thought about that too. Unfortunately, to put it on the bottom I would have to sew on an extra piece of fabric for the pocket which would take more time. The version I've used the last few years doesn't have the pocket for lighter & tamp and so I roll it up rather than just fold it over.

What are your fellas thoughts...small pocket for lighter & tamper or no pocket?

Personally, I would rather have a roll up than one with a lighter pouch.

Personally, I wouldn't. They look great, don't get me wrong, but the last thing I want to do is lose my lighter and tamper when I forget my pouch. Maybe that's the angle--without, 15 dollars...with, 20 clams.

Sorry, I should've clarified. If I sent you a tooled leather panel that could fit on the front flap could you sew/stitch the leather panel on the pouch?
Regardless if you can or can't, I'll buy when you are ready.

Do we have a delivery schedule? Prioritization of production roll out? Budgetary items cared or?

No?
