Hi Fretwell family,

I returned home last night from a backpacking trip and saw that my new flute bag arrived while I was away. I tore open the packaging right away, I was so excited to see it! It is perfect. I love everything about it, and my flute fits so well inside. The fringe is beautiful, the quality of the leather is so soft and nice, I love the stitching details on the flap and the strap, and the button. It's great. Thank you so much!

All the best,

.WHAT SIZE BAG DO YOU NEED?
While carrying your flute or pipe in the bag, you don't want too much wiggle room for your flute or pipe to flop around. Nor do you want it to fit to tightly. If you need a special size, we can do that. Email us. If you plan to carry multiple flutes in one of the bigger bags, be sure to wrap them in a "felt cloth" to keep them from touching each other, and take your measurements after you have wrapped them.


1. MEASURING FOR BAG WIDTH

Measure the width and depth of your flute or pipe at it's widest point. Add the two numbers together .
Then, add 1" to 1 1/2" for wiggle room.
This measurement is the minimum width of the bag that you need.
 
 
* When measuring your flute for width and depth, be sure to include the strap(s) in the measurement.
* When measuring your pipe for width and depth, wrap your pipe first and measure it for width and depth. Measure your pipe stem for the length.
   
2. MEASURING FOR BAG LENGTH

Measure the length of your pipe stem or flute. Add 1/2 of the depth measurement to the length measurement.
Then, add 1" to 1 1/2" for wiggle room.
This measurement is the minimum length of the bag that you need.

International Orders : Shopping Cart : Shipping Fee

International customers who use our online shopping cart will be charged a SPLIT shipping fee. At checkout, the $15 base fee will be charged. After you place your order, we will email you an invoice for the balance of the shipping fee. This amount will be the difference between the $15 you pay at time of check out and the actual cost to ship to your country.

We use a simple inexpensive online shopping cart service. It can not calculate multiple country shipping charges.

This simple shopping cart keeps our costs down and allows us to pass the savings onto you. We apologize for the inconvenience of having to split up the shipping fee.
