  • Bannatyne Hide (Hybrid) Pipe Bag

Pipe Bag (Bannatyne Hybrid Zipper) w/ Water Trap


Product Description

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"), and Willie McCallum size (10" x 27.5").

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.

    Great products at a great price, and fast shipping

  2. Great purchase

    Posted by Unknown on 4th Feb 2022

    First, Higgins had the best price and the delivery was fast. Ordered on Monday and had it on Friday. My pipes came w/ another brand but our band all uses Bannatyne. Switched from Med to the Ext. Small for comfort. The videos I watched made the process look easy but it was over an hour. The hardest was removing the bottom stocks from the old bag. Love the hide feel and the ease of a synthetic inner. Worth the time and effort.

  3. A wonderful fit

    Over fifty years of piping and I've played them all. Sheepskin and other hide bags. Then the synthetic bags. Next synthetic hybrid. This Bannatyne bag with the Willie McCallum cut is outstanding.
    The neck has the proper bend to it. I said playing on this bag it's like being reunited with an old friend. It will put a smile on your face.

  4. Best of both worlds

    Substantial feel of a natural bag with the convenience of synthetic.

  5. good bag, amazing service

    I recently purchased a Bannatyne "Willie McCallum" hybrid bag. I was very pleased with the ease of installation and I was up and playing within 30 minutes from unpacking. The best feature was J. Higgins' service. My old bag had died, I noted that when ordering and was pleasantly surprised when my new bag arrived here in California two days after ordering. Thank you!

  6. fast delivery...great product

    Just wanted to say I received the bannatyne hybrid extended small. Thanks so much. I love it. Easy to set up. I wish i had done this sooner. It’s more comfortable than my other hybrid brand. I have the bannatyne in my B flat set up. I will eventually switch my pipe band set up to a bannatyne as well. Just a happy customer. What I love about J. Higgins is their quick shipping and delivery.

  7. best bag i have used

    Posted by Unknown on 30th Oct 2020

    Easy to put together following directions
    Replaced older bag that the seals had decayed on
    I was playing again within a half hour!

  8. Excellent Bag

    My old L&M hide bag finally gave out after 22 years. I researched the different kinds of modern bags and settled on a hybrid bag. After speaking to other pipers, I purchased this one.
    My drone stocks slid right into the sleeves effortlessly as did the blowstick stock. The chanter stock required a little taping and adjusting, but that is normal. I was amazed at how fast and easy putting everything together really was. I had my pipes going in about 20 minutes from the time I had removed the old bag.
    This new bag is comfortable, airtight, and really has the feel of my old trusty hide bag, with similar resonance qualities. I like the zipper since I already dropped a drone reed. No more fishing out a slimy reed!
    So far, I am very happy!

    Product fine as expected, had within a day of ordering it. This is the 3rd Bannatyne bag I've had.

  10. Bannatyne Hybrid bag

    Posted by Bob Browne on 19th Nov 2019

    I recently purchased a Bannatyne Hybrid Bag in medium. It took a little muscle to install, but overall it was pretty simple and straightforward. The bag has a nice heft and solid feel to it. I’m very happy with it.
