Hi All,

quick question - I love the "kite sock" or "sleeve" that comes with every Best kite. It's a thin liner sleeve where you can either put the folded kite in as additional protection or you can expand the sleeve and store the kite with inflated struts.

I used those sleeves quite a bit...
- as protection for the kite when I threw in additional stuff in my actual kite backpack or "big travel golf bag"
- when I travel abroad I don't even bring the "normal backpack" and just use the sleeves since it is lighter and smaller
- when I just want to store them for a few hours with inflated struts

I don't have Best kites at the moment so was wondering what you guys are using for these purposes?

nylon laundry bag somewhere around $10, make sure it's smooth fabric the mesh kind gets stuck on the pulleys etc.

Epic kites come with a second inner bag that is expandable to be able to bag your kite with the struts inflated.
The Epic kite bags are the best kite bags I've ever had.

I am short a kite bag at this point.

Thanks for the responses...

The last year Cabrinha included those sleeves was 2012... It seems something like that is the cheapest option and the size should be about right... 6 USD:
