Forget about bringing your big heavy kite bag to the beach. This lightweight, durable kite compression bag works great if you want to quickly store a kite and be able to shrink the bag's size smaller for your travel. Six durable compression straps cinch down on the side of the bag and also act as a kite pump strap. There is a compartment for the control bar and a small pouch for your belongings. This bag is a great alternative bag if you are tired of lugging a large backpack down to the beach or want to save space in the trunk of your car. It also works well when traveling if you're going to pack more kites into your gear bag. Our coaches use these compression bags on lessons to pack more kites into the Waverunners and never leave the shop without them.
