Some time ago I posted a page about making your own inflation bag*, and since then several people have asked me to supply parts so they won’t have to spend time and money sourcing them elsewhere.
In response, I’ve designed an inflation bag that costs the same as one meter of 40D fabric and can be made in less than an hour (excluding glue curing time). Best of all, it takes the fiddling and guesswork out of fitting the Boston valves that are included in the DIY Packraft kits.
The inflation bag is quite easy to make, so it would be a good first heat sealing project and, as with all my designs, there’s no sewing required and only minimal gluing.
I’ll post detailed instructions soon. For now, here’s the inflation bag kit in the shop.
