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.
Ozone has what you're looking for, but with no chair function (but it has straps for holding one). They're the only brand that I've seen with a big pack like this. :thumb:

Cool. I will have a look.

ProLimit has nice one that fits two kites: https://www.prolimit.com/product/kite-session-bag/
ProLImit has great bags.
I live close to the beach, where it's also many times hard to park, so I bike to the beach with a TT and two kites. I use this:
https://www.prolimit.com/product/twinti ... -combobag/

which I can carry on my shoulders. Super light, strong and roomy enough, and everything fits in and protected.

It's a shame ProLimit doesn't have more presence in USA.
My first bag, I bought it from a shop in Lituania, and for the second, I had to pay a big price from a shop in California. Anyways, happy with those bags.

I’m after such a bag myself - light, around 100L volume, with compression straps and preferably not reliant on zippers - but after checking out the recommendations, there aren’t any to be had. Part of the issue is the different requirements. When riding on water, I need a large backpack that is cheap enough to leave on the beach for hours. On snow and sand though, I need a backpack that I can ride with (holding a second kite, clothes, etc). This can be more expensive since I carry it, but large packs without compression straps are out.

The only solution that I see at the moment is to have two different backpacks. The Ozone gear pack looks promising but seems too large to ride with.

Another vote for the Mystic compression bags.

Really tough ripstop, great shoulder straps, no zippers, place for your bar and two sizes to choose from.

I take these when I travel. Much lighter than the stock bags and I like to protect my kites while stuff is getting thrown into a cramped rental van.

The backpack bags that came with my Duotone kites aren’t of the highest quality, and I have broken buckles and zippers.

What a disgrace this is. After paying what you pay for a Duotone, I'd rather see the kite come in a simple bag that does its job than in a wanna-be-good bag that falls apart after little use.
