Revs and airports

is fairly strong.
I remember before my K.I.S.box that I sat on the aircraft waiting
whilst it was being loaded and witnesed what you could call kite bag
rugby being played by the baggage handlers my kite bag was being
thrown about below me like some sort of game. Marking the bag as
fragile seemed to have sparked some type of frenzy to see who would
The kites arrived unbroken however, but on the return journey I landed
in Stanstead and I had a phone call from a friend saying that my kite
bag was going around the carasouel at Gatwick. After about 4 days we
were both reunited again. (tip: don`t store stuff in your kite bag that
you wish customs not to notice !)

Last year I took a Rev II on holiday the spars were just short enough to fit my case (though 1.5 spars are too long).
Next time I fly I thought I might get one of those tubes that artists and architects carry drawings in. It won’t take too many kites but if I break the kites down it would take the spars and the sails will go in my other luggage.
Woody and I have always used a kite tube like the one Dave M has with no probs, Paul did manage to find a kite board bag that was long enough to take full length spares

We could fit other large soft kites in the case along with our REV bag.
Just keep it under 50lbs.

As it happens they are P400's and yes work fine. (replacing a SLE)
Did you use P200? Did it work out OK?

So next week looks like a foil kite week - but at least I get to check out if the location I am going will be Rev friendly
May good wind be in your kites!

I carried my bag last week to the Thailand kite festival and had no problems at security in 4 airports in 3 different countries...I think I was asked about the bag contents at exactly one of the bazillion checkpoints I had to go through.
This is a 1.5oz nylon ripstop bag that's just big enough to hold 2-3 revs and a pair of extended handles with line wrapped on 'em...not a big Revolution bag!
