The Bannatyne hide pipe bag is also referred to as the Bannatyne Hybrid. It comes with tie in kit and watertrap. This bag has a synthetic inner liner and hide outer layer so no seasoning is necessary. The hide gives you the feel of a traditional hide bag.
The blowpipe and all three drones are fitted with rubber collars for easy installation. You tie in the chanter stock the traditional way with twine or a C clamp that is provided.
Available in small (9 x 24"), small extended (9.5 x 26.5") medium (10.5 x 26.5"), large (11.5 x 29") .
The small extended bag has the drones and blowpipe moved forward on the bag for more comfort.
Important Product Note: All bagpipe bags can develop mold and fungi with regular use if not cleaned and disinfected properly. This can lead to chronic inflammatory lung disease. Please take careful precautions to ensure your bag and blowpipe are cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis to prevent mold and fungi from developing.

Bannatyne hybrid bag w/ water trap. I'm a so-so piper been playing thirty plus year. This is by far, the best bag i've ever owned. Super airtight and a great shape and design. I would highly recommend it.
Why I like Bannatyne bags
Posted by Gordon Stewart on 21st Aug 2018
I have been playing Bannatyne pipe bags for probably 20 years now and believe them to be an excellent choice for most players, especially for those of us who don't have an unlimited income. They combine the low maintenance of a synthetic bag with the balance of a hide bag, and are easy to tie in. What I like best, however, is the moisture control system. For years, at the insistence of my pipe major, I used the Ross system, and I think Bannatyne's "bottle and absorbent cloth" system is superior in every way. It's simple, lightweight, doesn't take up valuable air volume in the bag, and controls moisture at least as well, if not better. Since I went back to it, I have had little or no problem with moisture anywhere except (of course) on the blowpipe itself. which can't be helped.
bass drone hole and chanter tie-in hole slightly off

The bag works beautifully and the seals are very tight. The bass drone seems to be angled too far toward my head and when I rotate the bag to straighten it out the chanter rests at too sharp an angle off vertical. This may be just my preference or body build but it took some getting used to.
Good directions and video. Very easy to change over.
Overall I am very pleased with the performance of the bag so far. the drones strike in right away and there is absolutely no leakage.

Very good quality and easy to install with directions provided. I was surprised how easy it was. The rubber collars are very tight.
Excellent new bag
