Aftermarket Kite Bags - Any Recs?

Postby brighamj » Sun Jan 03, 2021 7:30 pm

Today, I went looking for an aftermarket bag for a single kite (or two) and gear for a session. The backpack bags that came with my Duotone kites aren’t of the highest quality, and I have broken buckles and zippers. A more durable bag of similar nature is needed. Is there a company making a solid kite bag that can also carries a pump, bar, and maybe some smalls? There are a lot of travel options, but I am surprised I haven’t found many purpose built day bags.

Thank you for the links. Do you have experience with any of these? I’m curious about durability. That Mystic bag looks like it may be the best of the bunch.

Army surplus sea bags.

They are tough cordura nylon, hold a lot and no zipper. Price is right.

This thread wants me to start designing my own kite bags.

Three kites. A smart way to wrap a harness around it somewhere. Straps for the board of course. Some "legs" or whatever so that you can use it as a chair etc. Would gladly pay several hundred euro for a bag that would allow me to pack all my stuff in one bag. Other than the big wheeled ones of course - they are slightly impractical for bringing to the beach etc.
