Bespoke OneWheel bags for sale
So after a few months of searching for the right bag for my OneWheel and not really being able to find one that ticked all the boxes i decided to try my hand at designing and producing one myself.
I'm not a bag manufacturer but i have had bags made for filming equipment and i figured why not design something completely bespoke for the OneWheel that will allow me to preserve this expensive bit of kit and allow me to travel with it with ease and peace of mind
And this is it the One Penny Bag:
Thanks to those that have already purchased the bag, i'm chuffed to pieces you're all pleased with it. And to anyone else who's interested then do not hesitate in contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org
@Jimmers75 Awesome design, but try to make some space to put the ultra charger
I am interested too, I commute in the subway and I am looking for a backpack. Just bought and return the Dakine mission backpack which did not fit the board...
Here are some pics of the finished bag. I've initially had 5 made but can obviously get more made if people are interested. The cost is £190 plus shipping.
@Jimmers75 Looks Great. I like the look of the fit and finish from the photos you have here. The Wheels are a must, I love that.

@Jimmers75 Wow, really nice design!
I agree, thats very good work - Do you know if it also works with an attached fender? (njcustoms)
And one more question: What kind of material is it made of in the inner side? I am asking that, because I am often using my OW offroad and therefore there will be a lot of dirt...
I've had loads of questions come in about the bag so here's some answers for anyone else interested in buying one.
Am I a bag manufacturer?
No making this bag isn't my main day job - I'm producing bags as the orders come in
What's the cost?
In US Dollars - $273. €245 or £190. This excludes shipping and PayPal costs. I do appreciate the feedback that this seems expensive however this is a totally bespoke travel kit bag for the OneWheel, there is nothing else like it on the market that will protect the OneWheel in a similar way.
Wooah that's expensive! Do you not think it's expensive?
Expensive is subjective, if this bag allows you travel with your OneWheel wherever and whenever you like, conveniently without it getting damaged, then no this isn't expensive.
My viewpoint on investment into kit like this is that if you opt for an alternative home made travel option, a cheaper non protective not so robust option, that loosely protects the device with little protection then as with most things in life that come in cheaper the eventual cost is the more expensive option.
Take this scenario as a relative example; you want to travel with the OneWheel, it's by plane. You've got the worry of the luggage dudes giving next to f*$k all respect for your personals and as they throw the OneWheel about it inevitably gets damaged. You now have a useless 25lb dead weight to have to cart about and you either have to send it back for repairs or worse case scenario it's written off.
No I can't guarantee the bag won't definitely protect your OneWheel from over overzealous, disrespectful baggage handlers but it will give you a fighting chance of bespoke protection.
A mate of mine pointed out that he has a similar bag for his clubs when he travels abroad or long distance. He paid a similar price for a quality, robust and padded bag that does what this bag has been designed to do for your OneWheel
Will the price be coming down at all?
I am looking at an alternative way to bring the cost down, but that means a trip to China, multiple visits to bag manufacturing companies I'm in touch with but right now I'm stacked with my day job, the visit is on the cards but it will have to wait.
What's it made of?
A mix of board for stability and denier ballistic nylon fabric, a hard wearing durable nylon that is durable and water resistant. Modern applications of ballistic nylon include luggage, cave packs, tool belts, police wear, watchstraps, motorcycle jackets, knife sheaths, and skin-on-frame kayaks.
Who's buying the bag?
Since I brought the bag to the forum's attention i've received a lot of interest from riders all over the globe but mostly bags are shipping to the states.
No stress if this isn't for you I totally get that but the OneWheel is not cheap, has a lot of sensitive electronics on board that need protecting when travelling or just when storing it and my design is based around that protection.
As I'm travelling more with this bag both for business and pleasure I'm seeing the value of its convenience and capability more and more and in doing so I've become super passionate about it - as I'm sure is evident by this update.
Anyway enough of me by all means e mail me at email@example.com with questions, feedback or orders

@Jimmers75 Very impressive design. I will keep this in mind as a future purchase. I am waiting on my OW to arrive now. Can not wait!!!!
This is an incredible bag design and looks great. I'm not sure if it's possible for small revisions, but one small aspect I would like to see added is small Velcro straps to secure the storage compartments, as I didn't see that in your promotional video. Does each compartment cover have a means of security? If not, when the OneWheel is in the bag, the weight of each side of the board would hold the flaps of the storage compartments closed, but it won't when the OneWheel isn't in the bag. I just don't want the charger or any of accessory falling out of the compartments.
@T-CAT Hi T Cat yes each compartment securely closes when the lids are closed by way of Velcro on the inside of each lid, offering a safe compartment for lose items and the charger.
Perfect!! Thank you. I'll have to start saving some cash for this bag. Great job!
built in battery recharger would be too dope to pass up
@Jimmers75 Thanks Jimmy! The bag arrived today and is awesome, the quality is really impressive. I'm loving the blue interior and the detachable side pouch. The amount of storage room is great...Theres plenty of room for all your gopro stuff, pads, charger and more. If anyone is on the fence on ordering one I would highly recommend it!!
@SC720 Thanks for the fantastic feedback and sharing the pictures, I think the blue looks great.
Wow man! Nice job on both design and construction..
