Thanks to Erin for finding these kite bags. Cathy & I bought one each and are very happy with them. They hold 4 Revs comfortably and are long enough for a Rev II. I haven't tried my Rev I yet, but it might be tight on this model, as it has a 36" centre spar with ferrules at each end. There are a couple of roomy pockets big enough for several handles, line sets, stakes, etc.

They are very well made with good quality materials. I doubt if I could make one for less money. They're perfect for a set of Revs.

NICE BAG!
If you have the older REV II with two piece leading edge that fits in the bag, then the REV I will fit. It is a few inches shorter packed up.

Another idea is to use a split double shot gun plastic case. Cost somewhere between $23 and $40. Just check the internals fit the spars.
Not much good if your hoping on planes ....cos well ..it looks like your carrying a shot gun. But its a solid case.
Made by Promax. Protector series Model #1535.
See pictures
The ultimate semi hard bag for the super slick at the moment, holds up to three revs lines and handles. The Prism Zephyr kite bag.
Buy the kite and carry bag. Sell the kite off ( or keep it , its a bit good) then pack your revs in the Zephyr case.
Easy carry on on plane too. expensive though.
Of course there is always the rev bag! duh! But like you say for only carrying a couple of kites its a bit large.
But its not as large as a team bag. LOL
Here are couple of photos of the Zephyr bag.
I know Walt is working on something for the future in hard cases. Work currently in progress. Will be interesting to see what he comes up with.
If he doesn't I think I might look into it. Something like the Oakley sunglasses case material. Be pricey though! Basically the Zephyr case but squarer. A little more depth. Depends on demand.

I think Walt maybe heading in the right direction though.
Give him some ideas
What would be perfection for everyone.
What do you want to carry.
How much don't you want to spend. Cos you know thats the crunch.

For a few revs (under 6), the Kite Connection bag Dave made up is excellent.

I use some cut-up ABS pipe, assorted fittings, and a couple of these things: http://www.eaglecree...ube-Cube-40375/ Kites, spars, and handles go in the pipe, and linesets/spare parts/etc. go in the attached packy-tube thingies.

p_00018.jpg p_00019.jpg p_00020.jpg

Currently have 3 1.5s and a whole bunch of spars in there, and have space for one more 1.5 and a couple more spar sets before things get snug.

So far, I've not shattered any Race Rods from stepping on/closing the trunk on/running over the case, so it's doing its job quite well.

Although I wish I had a Zephyr case instead. :)

Hey first the Long Beach fleece lined jackets and now the kite bags, we are so becoming outfitted as a team....gotta start flying together real soon for sure now!

Nice kite bags you two! I love mine and tote it all over town with me these days...cause you never know when or where a breeze might start up.

cheers,
Erin

You might want to check out the bags at Rudy's Toys, especially the first two on this page................They are really nothing but simple, 40 inch duffel bags, about 8 inches diameter. The one with the pocket makes a nice place for handles and/or linesets. I really like mine, but it won't give you "hard case" protection, like some of the hard side bags, mentioned above.............
