The CANMORE® Pipe Bag is a technically advanced fabric pipe bag which is based on a specially developed GORE-TEX® membrane from W.L Gore and Associates (UK) Ltd.
Initially developed in 1987 with consultation provided by Bob Shepherd MBE from RT Shepherd and Son Ltd, the CANMORE® Pipe Bag became the first ever synthetic pipe bag on the market, a concept that would later be copied by several other manufacturers who saw the benefits of a pick up and play anytime pipe bag.
The pipe bag has been designed to provide the best features of more traditional sheepskin and hide bags while eliminating their major drawbacks. The features offered by the CANMORE® pipe bag include:
- Maintenance free – a naturally supple product that requires no seasoning
- Specially developed GORE-TEX® fabric
- Pick up and play anytime
- Automatic moisture control – even pitch and tone
- Ease of assembly
- Longer bag life
- More hygienic
- 2 year guarantee
In 2015 we launched our latest product with our Hybrid CANMORE® GORE-TEX® Pipe Bag. Constructed using our technically advanced GORE-TEX® fabric with a hide outer. This gives the feel and weight of a hide bag without the maintenance associated with traditional hide bags.
