    Changing bags

    Why donít the manufacturers of changing bags sew the inner and outer bag together, so you canít put everything in the lining by mistake?

    ďThe contemplation of things as they are, without error or confusion, without substitution or imposture, is in itself a nobler thing than a whole harvest of inventionĒ

    Great question. I can't tell you how many times I've loaded a changing bag and then got a big surprise when I stick my hands in the holes.

    I use one and my complaint is no flat bottom. Everything wants to congregate in the middle.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    Thx Sirius Glass - that looks like a GREAT changing bag/tent!

    I've looked at the Harrison changing tents and the price is just out of touch with reality for what it is.

    That's not a problem I'd ever encounter! I'm using 120 film and will never make the leap to LF. Besides, my $12 eScam changing bag works fine for the foreseeable future. I'm not in the market for too much these days (aside from needing to pick up some b&w film for photographing a friends newborn).

    All the same, I book marked the link to that changing "cube" and maybe it can go on my Christmas list.

    I have had both and sold the cube, kept the Harrison. The cube is such a PITA to set up & take down. If you can leave is set up, not so bad, except takes up a lot of room and collects dust. I purchased a like new Harrison for about a $100 but it does take time to find a deal like that. It is very easy & quick to set up & take down. YMMV
