I now take it whenever I'm camping with the dogs in the sidecar (pic in my sig line).
He's planning to make these (now on his third design - this was the first) as one-off, custom instruments for people wanting a quality instrument that's unaffected by weather.
This is beyond cool. Does your brother have a price range in mind? Light, AND tough.. I have always just brought my harmonica because of those two demands... this would change things!
