The name was suggested by a friend, but it's stuck because every time I hear/think "tubular" I'm reminded on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and you can never be reminded of them enough. And the bag is a tube shape, so it's not exactly an inaccurate name.
Ok, pictures first, description afterwards:

This bag opens at the top with a zipper and there is a small (keys & lipstick sized) zippered pocket on one end. The handles are detachable, with the option to swap between having two small carry-handles, or one long shoulder-handle. The handles snap on/off with press-studs. Both the zips and the decorative top-stitching is in a contrasting colour to the bag, and the lining of both the body and the pocket matches the topstitching. I just use plain cotton lining because with a zippered bag like this, the lining doesn't ever really show.
The bag measures 12cm in diameter and is 29cm long. It keeps its shape because there's plastic "CDs" (you know those ones that are on the top and bottom of CD/DVD spindles) in both ends, and thin plastic between the lining and the outer fabric of the rest of the bag.

Holy crap, that looks so professional! I tried a duffel bag like that once and it did not turn out so tubular. At all.

That CD thing is a very splendid idea  Grin

Holy Crap x2!!! Awesome bag...I too have tried the duffel bag thing with no success...I just can't sew circles for the life of me. I also like the fact that you can change the handles...great idea...and the bag is stylish too...great job...maybe you can post some tips on doing the circular sides...?

That's fabulous! I totally adore the idea for the handles, I'm a fan of everything changeable/customizable! And the CD hint for the bag ends is the cherry over it all  Cheesy

p.s. what is material/fabric for the red pieces that hold the handles?
