Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

What do you guys use if your kites don't have a case?
Is there a good source for them?

sleeves? Into the wind offers some, pretty much any kite shop will have some.

They are super easy to make if you are so inclined and have a sewing machine around and some free time. They are also a great project to get started into making kites and stuff as well:

Just a big long rectangle, a few inches longer than the kite itself, and about 6-7" wide. fold in half then sew up one small size and the long size
- tadaa -
the most basic sleeve you can make...make it out of any material!

you can see a couple types of sleeve closures in here:

Depends on the kite.  - For the more fragile ones: either drain pipes, or the tubes anglers use to protect their rods.  - Both cut to a convenient size.
