Hi,

I'm planning to get a Rev bag to store a combination of Revs and some dual line kites folded down into half length. Does anybody know how long can I stick a kite into each of the 5 pockets?

Thanks
Darryl

Hi!

The fold over flap is somewhat adjustable....but basically...the length is going to be a little longer than your Revs in their sleeves. I attached a picture of the bag:

Hi,

I comfortably put my power 2~4 in my Rev bag. Yes, the flap adjusts a little for this.
42" is easy. My Power 2~4 is closer to 44".

Hope this helps you.

Also if you travel or just like to carry more..

I put a PVC (Rain water down pipe) in one of the pockets cut to be slightly longer than a rev 1 rod. I can then take all rods out, and put nice and safe in a PVC tube, and the pay off is that I 1) can swap frames easier & 2) can put just the sails in the pockets so can take more Rev's

I used this earlier in the year to go to Ireland, I took two full sets of Team rev's & two full sets of team Rods (so SUL, Std, Vent, Twisters) PLUS a set of Team dual line kites (SUL,STD & VIP's) plus all lines for two people & dual line. All fitted in one bag and was below the weight limit too.

The bag from Rev is really good and can recommend it highly, have two now.

I agree completely with Simon about the vesatility of a Rev bag.

On the subject of inserting tubes to protect spars Crosslines used this to transport all their team kites to Eurocup in Italy a few years ago with no broken spars at all !!!

The same cannot be said for the end of the competition after some very strong winds !! :P
