These bags are hand crafted out of 18oz fabric and have a closure that avoids using a zipper by utilizing cam buckles. This design was developed to address the consistent issue of zipper failure on an item that is often thrown in the dirt at camp. We also make handle access slits on the sides so that you can secure the bag and pan by the welded handles on pan. I once saw a flipped boat that had the Fire pan bag attached to the boat with grommets. Once the boat was recovered the strap with the grommets was all that was left of the firepan. This style bag also works well for stoves.
