Just a quick heads up to anybody using / traveling with a kite compression bag or any other compression bag for that matter. I've witnessed over the last few weeks kiters turning up at our center unpacking their kites only to find small holes and rips in the ripstop material of the wing.
From what we can make out squeezing your pride and joy into a small space and compressing can cause chaffing / rubbing when traveling especially around the plastic clips and zip tie area's of kites with one pump systems. I've seen kites from several brands with this same problem when using these bags.
I'm not looking to bag the bag but my advise would be don't pack to tight.http://www.stormkiteboarding.com/
