Travel bag for pocket quiver

Postby grigorib » Mon Jan 07, 2019 9:05 pm

I own a 142cm long PKS lightweight bag with no wheels, just straps and it's awesome for twintip and rest of gear.
I would get a electric piano/keyboard bag for foilboard only.

Travelling with 36-42" long foil pocketboard and 91-101cm mast kind of leads me to looking for a lightweight bag which can fit board/mast/wings/fuselage/harness/bar/5m/7m/9m kites and would be pretty compact for travel on "foil-only trips"

I saw some shorter golf bags at Dick's which I need to try but would like to hear other suggestions

Nobile has a bag that will fit a 42 inch board that I will most likely get soon. I have their master travel bag which has been fantastic. It’s been around the world many times and strapped to the back of my motorcycle for 10000 miles.

Let me know how it works, I leave for Cuba on Saturday so I can't order one and get it on time but I tried.... $98 in shipping not worth it

I like the body board options. Need one wide enough for a DC 42" which I think is 18" . Will these be over the 62" oversize? I think so. That is why I was going with Ion golf bag. But these look like they would work perfect.

I don't understand the point of the shorter 95-110cm bag vs a 145cm Bag. For Airline travel they are both considered oversized. Obviously ,the 145cm bag will weigh slightly more but depending on your equipment choices, 3 kites, board , foil and bars will add up to around 20-23Kg which in my experience is the max some airlines allow for "sporting equipment". Plus, when traveling with a light carbon foil board say like Moses T38 its nice to put the board in its own slider bag than goes in to the golf style bag. Extra protection a the expensive of a bit of weight .
