Travel Bag!

Shoot the breeze and stay in the loop with the unhinged and unhooked word on the street.

I am hoping to go kite somewhere warm soon (not decided where yet! So many places to choose) and I want a decent bag that can hold all my equipment, Board, Bindings (these being the biggest issue, taking up a lot of room!), kites, couple bars, harness and pump.

Can anyone recommend a good bag with plenty of space that's not over £110

I have this bag, you'll get everything in, it's MASSIVE. The issue is the weight!

If weight is an issue then the new Elevate Bag could be your answer.
I recently had a trip using the Surf Elevate bag, 3 x kites, 2 x surfboards (inc there own bags) 1 x TT, 1 x harness, 2 x bars and all way under 30kilos

there is no padding in these but I just use the kites etc to protect the surfboards
And then when your there it rolls up the size of a sleeping bag ... board-bag/

Just picked up my ammotwin from marc at blast, not only did it come with a free cup of tea on collection but I can confirm the 160 model fits the following as I've just tried quickly for you :

Two twin tips
One set of straps
One set of boots
All the fins etc...
12m badly packed and wet and sandy
9m badly packed and wet and sandy
7M badly packed and wet and sandy (you may be seeing a pattern here)
Waist harness
Board shorts
Bar and lines
There is still plenty of room to spare for other things prob ably another whole kite if I packed them down properly.

The weight... 32.2 kgs but I'm being honest and there is a lot of wet sand stuck to my kites, will easily come under 30 kgs when I'm actually packing properly as I was out today so my boots and harness are also weighing a lot more due to being very wet ( dripping)

Hope that gives you an idea of what your looking for.
