    Stump, you might have already answered this, but how much did you estimate the canvas bags to cost?
    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.

    Oh, I hadn't, but probably 4-6 bucks each. It all really varies. Canvas can be made of all sorts of materials I think, and it depends how desperate a factory you find. Double, maybe triple the price of the nylon at any rate. Most of the numbers I threw out there were my most medium guesses. Stuff fluctuates a lot depending on where the factory is and what scrap materials are available to be sourced. There's a ton of leftovers for making stuff like this that doesn't have to be FDA approved or sterile or whatnot for science or food purposes that factories utilize.

    Edit to add:

    My estimate was way off. Once you start adding straps and crap to it, like theirs has, the price of canvas goes crazy. Take these prices as about 1/3 lower after negotiations, but here are a few examples of what Canvas bags cost:

    Compare that to the much lower "basic" canvas bag, which is probably what they based their initial cost estimates on:

    Theirs is probably somewhere in between those in complexity. Probably around $10-13 is where they'd land after negotiations.

    As an aside, if there's anyone thinking that maybe they were getting all this from the US....here's an example of a price on some tiny machined piece from the good old US of A. For reference, I ended up paying $23 per piece for this in China.
