Panniers for a Royal Enfield Himalayan

Customer question: Do your pannier bags work well with the standard RE pannier racks?

Our answer:

They sure do. A lot of the pictures of our Himalayan on the group and our business page and website have the panniers on standard racks. We have the Large Panniers on ours, which do take some care to ensure that they do not get near the exhaust. For that reason I recommend cutdown jerry cans in them, which makes a great semi-hard shell that if you add a rope handle means you can pull them out at camp. 
That said, the Standard Panniers fit great / better and are a bit smaller. They don’t sag as much due to the less depth. You cannot fit the cutdown 20L jerry cans in them but some people have used other things. Much of it is in the way you pack them. 
Gary, on the Royal Enfield Himalayan Australia group, has the Stubby Panniers. I didn’t recommend them due to extra depth so they sag but he has the cutdown jerry cans in them and they seem to be working well. 
Our panniers, as far as fitment goes, are made to fit most bikes / racks. They are generic, in that the throwover straps are adjustable and there are 6 loops at the back so you can work out how to best fit them. A pair of small flat straps is my recommendation and are an option with panniers. But we also provide 4 double sided velcro loops that you can use to attach them to the racks so they don’t move about whilst riding. 
I hope that helps. Always happy to answer questions and you are welcome to call, during business hours, if you like.

Tool organiser for Tool Box Lid

Tool organiser

  • 490mm wide x 320mm wide overall with a small amount taken off the corner (the box has a small curve at the corner and taking a small triangle off the corner will stop the fabric getting caught in the lid seal)
  • 12 snap fasteners on the back side (opposite side to the pockets) snaps are 15mm from the edge to the centre, 50mm from the corners and the middle ones are in the centre. (photo attached showing snap positions)
  • 8 pockets (or 7 pockets if you think the screwdriver in the middle would be better with a elastic loop instead of a pocket)
  • 3 elastic loops

Custom Tool Roll for Florist

“Hi Naz
Thanks for the chat just now, here are the photos of the gear to fit in the roll (attached)
I think the design how you have the garden rolls on your website is pretty close – with the smaller pocket on the left for seeds/sachets/wire and the larger flat section behind for other larger loose stuff. Just so long as the other tools fit i guess. Colour was Brunswick Green.”

Archaeology Tool Roll

“Hello Naz,
I phoned you this afternoon expressing interest in a custom tool wrap. My girlfriend is an archaeologist and in the field they use wraps to hold tools used during their excavations.

As such, for a birthday present, I would like to inquire as to the price of a custom tool wrap for excavation tools.
The tools are:
-a tablespoon and a teaspoon
-a collapsible ruler
-a 150mm pointing trowel
-a small pick (still in post, represented in photograph by a white silhouette matching the exact size)
-a 22mm corner paintbrush
-a 50mm framing paintbrush
-4 long nails bound together
Collectively, the items look like this to scale:

I was thinking that this order would be best to roll but if you feel it will not work I defer to your best judgment. I feel most of these tools will fit within existing pouch designs seen on your website for screwdrivers or pliers.
If there are any problems, please let me know, I can provide additional measurements if need be (I can send photos of individual items for their sizes).
I look forwards to hearing from you soon.”

The tool roll was embroidered with her name so that is blurred out.

Custom Panniers

Customer: “I recently bought a Bike that has Pannier Racks to suit Wolfman Bags.  I would prefer to buy “Australian Made” Naz Bags and was wondering if I could order a pair of small Motorcycle Saddle Bags with a couple of minor alterations to the straps.

These would be two separate bags with no need for joining straps.  If it is possible to make the bags 350mm long instead of 300, that would be perfect, if not 300 would be ok.  (my OCD will adapt)  I am willing to pay extra for your time and effort.

I have attached a couple of pictures of the design and the Rack and am open to suggestions but feel my design would work well.”

Solar Panel Bag

Customer: “I was wondering whether you would be able to make a bag/cover for a folding solar panel I use when I am travelling. I was thinking about getting it made out of similar material to a horse rug, canvas outer with a heavy felt liner to protect the panel from damage when it is bouncing around in the back of my van. The panel is about 700x1000mm and about 50mm thick.”

Naz: “I would do that like the firepit bags I have been doing lately, although bigger. Just a flat bag with velcro across the top and handles that are stitched all the way around. The bag would be a bit larger in dimension to allow for the 50mm thickness. I have attached a photo of one of the fire pit bags. I can line it with horse rug wool fabric.”

23/05/22: These are soon to be a product for sale on the website as we have been doing a lot as custom orders. They are costing about $150 – $250 dependent on size and we have sourced a recycled wool lining. Please contact us for orders.

Small Canvas Tarp

Customer: “Hi again, Just looking through the website, saw the tire change mat. Could I please get something 1000×600, as that’s the size tarp I use under my hammock, so I don’t step on slugs in the morning, and keeps the gear, I don’t string up, off the ground, be able to strap it to the molle be great too. Just a thought for now and to see if it’s possible, the tarp has died and I was to get another, just buying a plastic sheet makes no sense .”
