One of the factors that makes iSUP so attractive to so many people, is the ease of transport. You don’t need a van or roof bars, and it’s much easier to travel on planes, with the weight of whole packages of top end kit (including paddles) being only 15kg.
But all of this lugging them around leaves them at risk of damage, and can be hard work, so requires a sturdy and easy to use bag.
Chunky wheels – made from recycled plastic bottles
Our customers have been taking the boards to some pretty wild places, and the wheels needed beefing up to cope with the rugged terrain. And the bottom of the bag has been reinforced with recycled plastic so the bag is self-supporting when the board is rolled up in it.
Comfortable, fast wicking, shoulder and hip straps.
And they’ve been being taken to some places where pulling them just wouldn’t work. Up and down cliff paths, through scrubland, and over hill and dale. The new bag has very comfortable padded shoulder and hip straps, and chest straps to keep the shoulder straps in place.
When pulling the gear, or putting into the hold on planes, you want the straps to be safely stowed away so they don’t get caught under wheels or ripped off by rough handlers.
One of the biggest frustrations with SUP bags is how difficult it is to get the board into the bag. Trying to manhandle the board into a bag that only opens at the top or that doesn’t open fully is almost as difficult as most men find putting on a duvet cover. So the entire front of our bag unzips opening up the full compartment.
…for accessories. This means that the pump and the rest of the accessories don’t take up useful space (for wetsuits, towels, picnics etc) inside the bag. All standard accessories fit neatly into the front pocket leaving plenty of space for the remainder of your kit.
Bags of space
The bag has lots of spare room to take wetsuit and towels, tghere’s even plenty of space for a dry robe, and even enough to hold all your luggage for a short weekend trip. And with compression straps to reduce the depth of the bag if you don’t need all the space.
Comfortable handles, lots of them
…and just in the right places. Perfect for manhandling the gear onto conveyor belts, or into the boot of car. And they’re padded so that don’t cut off all circulation to your fingers!
And the bags have two compressions straps on each side so you can tighten up and compress to keep everything inside snug on longer journeys.
