My 8m kite is easy to fold into the bag. The 10 will do in when you pack it really small. Hard to do sometimes when you are trying to pack away with the wind howling. The 14 will only packing into the bag when i roll it up in my living room and squeese the bejesus out of it and i dont even know how we managed to pack a 17m kite into its bag... Oh btw the bags are all the same size! WTF?

For packing kites for traveling i find a waterproof backpack liner from a outdoor store are good.
There super light very strong and take up little room, they dont have a draw string but just a simple roll and clip that forms a handle that is air tight so you can compress the kites as little or as much as you want.

Excellent suggestion! I'll look into this more, thanks! I'd be happy to give up its watertightness for a shoulder strap.

They're too small. I had a look at them at my local kite store. I'd never be able to pack my 10m or 14m kites into those

I put my Edge 15 in, no problem. Remember they are a compression bag: loosen up the compression straps
