BA -

I carry a Camel back for drinking water. Good for staying out for 5-6 hours when conditions are good.

Ok let me explain......

If you stick a few bottles of water in a backpack you can increase your weight and hence can go out in higher winds... If the conditions get lighter again you can let the water out.

You could safely launch your kite very powered up with exra weight on you, then take it off when you get to the water!
Nice idea, for days when you launch and ride alone, it would be good!

OOH, like comp sailplanes, they carry water ballast then dump it before landing.

and unlike lead wieghts, the water ballast won't sink you:)

Poleboarders often use lead weights in their chest harnesses.....

Have a bit of string do you can dump the water just before you jump... could be quite handy....

Also fill the bag with shit and dump the faeces at the top of your jump.... preferably on some seagulls .....

and see how THEY like it!!!
