Overall build and fabric durability seems good, seen a 6m survive a tree and a Shanty, and the kite survived well! :o :D

You have to break them in some how! I didn't have the balls to tomahawk the shanty so I had Willow do it for me :D I almost cried both times, gotta say these are dang durable kites. Note to everyone, don't count on the 6m staying put like the 9m does, if there is wind and shes not weighted down she WILL fly.

I have to add, the back pack is proving much more useful than I originally thought. As a touring setup I have no idea how it can get any lighter and compact. The harness part of the pack isn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be, It could use a little more distribution along the back. Also I figured out that if you put the 9m in first then the 6m the pack is perfect size for both.

Does anyone have any good jumping pics or video with the peak. The only ones I've seen have been unimpressive and while I assume the kite was not made for boosting it is nice to read comments like the above.
