Burrito Roll

Sure we could all use something new too look at. Got bored and continued a strap made product journey..
Never been a big kite bag fan. Sport kites or power kites.
So here is my rough and crude storage/transport solution.
I always run into kites unrolling and needing attention on the walks in and out from my buggy sessions or blowing around inside the van, so I made a simple burrito roll supported strap setup with all this extra time we have for some sparred twinskins.
Keeps everything snug as a bug for the days riding and desired kites. A spine or kite length pocket was added for support under the 2 carrying handles... and or possible spare spars for the beloved twinskins.
Pictured are a 12m 15m and 18m Phantoms.
Made with 2" and 1.5" strap and a few buckles of the needed size. This idea can be adapted to any of your desired kite styles.
Try and get some photos of the recent tandem buggy straps up soon.

Do you have a good source for canvas for making bags? I know it's not your thing but I really need to make a jumbo bag for all my twin skins. For years now I've been over-stuffing one arc bag with multiple arcs, but I hate the arc bags. As I have more arcs than I can fit into one arc bag it's doubly bad.

I want to make a bag that's about 6 in longer than a phantom 2 12-m bag and maybe 50% larger diameter. Add a handle at each end, a pair of handles in the middle and a high quality zipper running down the entire length.

I fly: Charger II 6.5m * Charger II 8m * Charger II 10m * Scorpion 10 (for sale) * Phantom II 12m * F-Arc 1200 * Venom 13m

I ride: Peter Lynn XR+ on Midis * Flexifoil Midi/Barrow * Peter Lynn Comp on Barrows * Peter Lynn XR+ (needs a fork)

I build: Custom bars for buggy pilots
