Topic: Looking for a bag like this
Message: Posted by: gdalestumps (Mar 26, 2018 02:43PM)
Hello everyone! My Dad does ballooning and he is looking for a new bag. He saw this one and loves it, but they do not ship to the US. Has anyone seen something similar? I think the insets were a big draw for him.

Twist em up bags are similar to this. This would probably be similar to the triple size. You can get wherever you buy your balloons. If not, LaRocks has them.

Also, Rose and Tristen used to make a bag similar to this. It's not on their website, but you can contact them. It was a little larger than the twistem up bag.

Thank you for your help. It is not the bag itself that he is most interested in, but more of the inserts. None of the other bags seem to have the individual inserts for the balloons. I am hoping to find someone who can make them for me if I can't buy them. Thanks again!

Those inserts look useless and will just take up space in the bag. The balloons typically stand just fine if left in their nozzle-up packaging. If they're not nozzle up already, roll them using the bag itself as a roll. I explain the process here: http://kidsentertainerhub.com/breaking-in-to-the-balloon-biz-part-2-2/

As for bags, there are lots of newer options. Right now everyone in the balloon world is in love with Ron Fowler's newest bags. Check out the Facebook group, Balloon Twister Central, and ask around for more info. I have a Bagchunas and it works alright. Similar to the bag you linked to, but definitely has better side pockets. There's also a bag/cover for a Filbert pump that Ken Shute makes. I use that but it's small so it doesn't fit all the balloons I need. A person with a smaller kit could use it as their only bag, however.

It's funny, but I never thought about using a bag while twisting since I usually did it behind or next to a table.
