This is a laptop bag, just sitting there for now. I'm going to make a simple flat plastic plate{ lots of plastic choices from McMaster Carr}, bolted with 1/4 bolts to the tunnel with plastic uprights at the tunnel outer corners just high enough to clear the hose cover. At the bumper I'll first try hd tie straps through a hole in the plate and then around the bumper. The plastic plate will be trimmed to match the bumpers curve, and also have the center trimed away at the bumper to be able to get your hand on the bumper for lifting and tie down purpose's

Dave, Have you thought of just carrying a backpack? A few weeks back I bought an all black Jansport backpack for $15 at Sam's... I've been thinking about going back for another one because the one I bought works really well... So far I've used it as a flightbag, computer bag, overnighter, etc.

I'd like to get a higher quality one for everyday commuting to the city with my laptop, but was thinking on dedicating one Jansport to a flightbag and the other to "activity" based use (biking, snowmobiling, etc)... I haven't tried with my coat on, but black matches black and the bag is actually comfy and easy to get on and off with good nylon harware to tighten and loosen the straps.

I wore a backpack on the bike for years. Don't think it would be comfortable for me on the sled.

The problem with a backpack while on a sled is sweat. Basically your clothes/jacket won't be able to breath and your back will get soaking wet, eventually that equals COLD!

Things in the laptop bag are gonna get drenched... It's sitting right on top of the cooler so the snow will stick to it and permeate it. Even if you coat the nylon with some good camp-dry or some other waterproofer, the zipper isn't waterproof...

I picked up a tank bag, not a ton of room, but enough to get a few things in to take along. And it looks good too! :div20:
