Got my tunnels today so I tested out the fitment of the one piece straps.  I like them a lot!

They fit incredibly well, not loose or too tight.

I was concerned since tunnels aren't known for being the most accurate objects in the world.   But they hold the tunnel really well.

Chris, what are they like for carrying?  I've always liked the pairs that separate into single bags with handles, since my limit is 20-25 lbs per hand (sometimes not even that!  :)

I would need to measure to be exact.  But I would guess around 25 lbs per bag.  I can put them on a scale later tonight to be sure though :)

Was wondering more about how you carry them with the one-piece strap.  I've always found it rather difficult to carry two tunnel bags that are connected since my knees keep bumping into the strap (if that makes any sense)....  We occasionally have volunteers who will just pick up a pair of 25 lb tunnel bags (connected) and haul fifty lbs in each hand (or slung over their shoulders), but not a lot of middle-aged + women are capable of that ......  :)

I got one set of these bags sent to Australia and I like them a lot.  They are kinder to the tunnels having a wide band.  They hold the tunnel just right with the right amount of tension.  Eliminates the element of people velcroing the tunnel too tight or too loose.  Yes they are more difficult to carry with the strap....  However it it is not a problem if you use a yard cart....if you don't use a yard cart the easiest way is two people...one bag side each with the strap spanning between them.  I envisage huge daisy chains of ring crew and bags *lol*    I do like them.

We think alike Shirlene!  I tell people that they MUST use a cart (we have five of the little gardening carts) or they MUST use two people!  I want my workers to be able to last the whole weekend and not be sore!  Our workers all seem to be in the 55+ (and lots in the 63+) age groups!

I find it just amazing how my personal view of my age group changes as time passes.  For a number of years, I have regarded myself on the upper edge of "middle age"  ... and still think that way.  I am retired from chief course builder (twice at least) and will move some tunnel bags but not lots of them.
