I go out walking my dog and sometimes ride my bike and run her along side of me.  A lot of times on these walks I find myself wishing I had brought a dual line kite or 2 along.  How to carry a couple of kites while dog walking/biking?  I tried putting a couple in the bags our camp chairs came in and throwing it over one shoulder, but they have a tendency to creep around my back and eventually dump out the contents.  I thought of using a arrow back quiver but they don't make them very long (usually just 17-20 inches), not very long.

Has anyone else found a handy solution for this?  I just want to be able to grab one or 2 kites and a couple of dually lines and keep my hands free for tending to the dog or biking.

I made myself a shoulder strap with an adjustable loop at each end - I tighten the loops around 1, 2, or 3 kites, and then just sling them over my shoulder. Kite lines go in my pocket.

Level One kites make this:-



You just adjust the straps to fit around the kites you have and then adjust to fit over your shoulder.

I made one from some old 1" webbing strap and some old clips I had. If you;re interested I can post some pictures of the one I made and take some measurements.

On the bike just strap the kites to the horizontal top tube between your legs....it can stick out forward and backward without issue

I made one similar to this , when i am going to the field on my bike instead of the bulky kite bag. Works great,and hands are free.

A foil is cheating  Cheesy.  A Rev bag will carry several kites broken down and won't dump the contents.  A plastic telescoping 3" tube from the drafting store will carry a couple of kites and could be strapped to the bike top tube.

Those look nice Steve.  Thanks for the tip...

A number of us use Field Hockey bags. Mine has 6 Revs in, 4 sets of lines & handles with room for camera, .mp3 player and spare parts.

They have a number of sizes available from about $20 and up.

I use it when I ride down to the field on my bike. Mine is long enough to hold a Rev II folded down, which is about 36" long, so there's enough room for most broken-down dual liners.

Thanks to a earlier post by SKB, we snagged a Gryphon field hockey stick bag for our Revs. It has nicely padded shoulder straps and pockets for handles and other items. The Rev bag is nice but at 3-4 times the cost.
