Thinking about a bag- different capabilities depending on different situations.
situations, you can leave a bag with extra gear and not fear it stolen, or I'm with the lady and her recliner who will look after bag while out. I'm really cautious about leaving extra kites or gear around while on water. If the car parking is 200+ meters from a launch you don't wanna go back and forth swapping sails if it can be avoided right? Or if going by boat to spot, super easy to have everything in a single bag without too much dangling on the outside, I personally prefer pump and bar inside for some reason.
What is the best stuff sack or backpack style bag on the market that can hold at least- 12m, 9m maybe also 7m or some combo of 3 kites
+ bar + pump + harness. or attachment points to hang harness. Then would only have to carry foil or board with arms, maybe can carry foil in one arm twintip in other. How many liters required for this load wondering?
I saw a youtube video a while back of an Australian dude who got a custom canvas cylindrical bag with a pull string top, and a double layer on the bottom for longevity. didn't look so heavy, looked quality. Someone mentioned a Dakine bag recently. I'm looking for a single bag with backpack straps that can hold almost everything.
If there is a recent or any thread that goes over all this, please post the link.
Tried to find this Dakine compression bag/sack, it looks like they are more made for individual kites. Those look perfect to compress the kites in the bag I'm thinking of. Kites in bags in a bag. So much baggage... also, can't find the dimensions for the Dakine compression bag in liters. [ 60 X 25 X 30cm ] can anyone convert that to liters? that is the largest Dakine compression bag I can find.
After more research, I think what I'm personally after is a backpack-style duffle bag. maybe soft/light enough that I wouldn't trust flying with gear fearing damage. 100 liters? 110 liters? Does anyone have a preferred duffle backpack for day-use?
I just spent an hour looking on the internet at bags. After more thought, thinking of putting this soft duffel backpack
in the large padded and hard plastic reinforced board bag I use for flying with equipment. Although looks like no Mexico trip this year
half of the google search results are in inches/cm and they dont post liters. makes it really hard to judge volume without a human for scale. Drybag versions could be the best option but look like the most expensive.
Could have just found a winner. chose to check amazon last for a strange reason.
It looks like those are really handles - not backstraps, but i could pull them off as shoulder straps with light modification or leaving a portion unzipped. check out at how small it compresses!
This is probably closer to what I imagined. Does anyone know of something similar or better for around the same pricing?
