Brunotti kite vacuum bags

Postby CaymanWind » Mon Apr 12, 2004 4:01 pm

Hi folks.

Does anybody know where to get Brunotti kite vacuum bags in the US if this is even possible? If not, is there another vacuum bag that can be deflated using a kite pump. The space saver bags look cool but require a vacuum cleaner hose to attach. Any ideas for an adaper to convert a vacuum hose to a kite pump hose?

Any input appreciated.

Cheers
Ryan

I made an adapter by cutting the end off a shop vac extension tube and then duct taping it to a standard kite pump nozzle. Works fine,

Eagle creek makes bags that don't require a pump or vacuum cleaner. I haven't tried them, but here's the link:

If anybody has experience with them please post.

Thanks folks.

Once I get the bags I will experiment with PVC fittings. I know they work with the pump hose side because my Gaastra Phoenix has PVC fittings to pump the duel LE bladders. Just need to find something to fit the shopvac side and then reduce it.

Once again, thanks for your input.

I have used camping compression duffle bags with great sucess. Put the kite in, 4 pull straps on each side. No need for suction. :idea:
Many sporting goods stores carry them. The link below is for REI. Bag shown is uncompressed.

Cayman check out http://www.brunotti.com and ask for the US distributor, if you struggle I am sure some of the UK shops will ship to you no worries. The Brunotti bags are great I have them so they are worth hunting out, any problems drop me a PM.
