Ok, I know most of you have a pretty fine quiver of Revs by now but as a newbie I am the proud owner of just TWO, yup, a mere but most precious, pair of Rev's. I'm not anticipating filling up a regular Rev kite bag in the immediate future so I'm looking for a smaller kite bag to tote my standard and vented Revs along with a few line sets and my handles and stakes. I'd appreciate any tips on where I could find a slightly smaller kite bag suitable to my modest needs.

thanks,
Erin

I found a light weight golf bag made of Cordura in a used sporting goods store that will hold 3 or 4 Revs with handles, lines, stake, sunscreen, etc. It was less than $12.00
It's the right size for strapping on your back for a bike ride.

You could consider one of the map/blueprint cases from a container-type of store or an art supply dealer. It collapses to different sizes and will hold a couple of Rev kites and their accessories. They're probably five or six inches in diameter with a screw-on end cap and a strap to throw over your shoulder.

Seen both used, adn can recommend both

The map print paper holders are really good, as they also offer some protection & a strap.

OR try THIS

Once you get your Rev bag, then you can get one of these to drag it to the field :blue-grin:

I had purchased a bag from The Kite connection that has served me well for quite some time. I've stuffed up to 8 kites in it before feeling the stuffed factor. It also includes a side pocket that also holds a large amount of "stuff", including 3 or 4 sets of handles, assorted lines, stakes, etc.
Here is a link to the bag.

I just use the bag that they supply for those colapsable camping chairs...you know the ones they sell at WalMart and such. It actually works perfect! Mine has a strap on it for easy carrying and it's not big and bulky at all. It even has a draw string on it so you can make sure nothing falls out.

Happy flying to everybody. Now get off the computer and get a kite out! hehe

That was going to be my suggestion too. I have also seen snow board bags used but to to be honest, you may as well just bite the bullet and get the Rev bag, go on you know you want it, you're going to get one eventually just do it. :devil:

I have to admit I felt a bit silly with mine when I got it with only 3 kites, but with all those empty pockets you'd be amazed how quickly you fill them, you just have to.

Check out the Sporting Goods store for ski bags. They should still be real cheap when still in stock from last season. For Revs only, you can cut them down to size.

All the above ideas are great.But why not be individual and make your own,then you can have it to carry whatever you want.But like bob said you will get the REV BAG sooner or later. :P :P :P
All the best

Kite Connections Bag is realy good as said earlier.I have one[several].We also use them to carry our team kites and other flying stuff.The outside pocket is very good.Dont have to remove all inner content of the main compartment to find something like lines or a stake.Just use the exterior pocket.

Ive had one now for many years.Ther robust,zip up well and carry a supriseing amount of kit.Its length and width are well thought.Obviously had A Rev or similar kites inmind when put together.Ive also traveled with them.The zips on MINE,,,,lock together with a small security lock through the double zipper[two zips]
Dave at Kite Connection is a freind, so im pritty one sided,but ive yet to find a more usefull bag that does what it says on the Tin at a modest cost.

Otherwise is use a larger Revolution Roll Up Bag.Which are very kewl and ive recently made my own bag.Which im very happy with.Its a cross between several ideas for carrying stuff.

Bri...I'll show you mine if you show me yours.

I'm about to make kite bags for myself and my daughter. We've outgrown the original family bag I made. Going with another roll-up, but considering possible improvements.

I extoll the greatness of these bags and still agree with the sentiment however this past weekend at Sunfest, a zipper handle broke off the main zipper. Likely from over stuffing the bag. Will temporarily fix but,oh well, looks like it's time to add a new bag to the list!!!
