Good morning everyone.
I'm going to make a kite bag, and decided I'd like some audience/critics. I'm no expert, and actually consider myself quite novice, as I've only sewn 2 kites and two bags in the past. I would appreciate your comments, warnings, and any advice is most welcomed.
I've sewn a nice flight travel bag in the past, but wanted something I can take with me in the car and from it to the beach, as I find myself carrying more and more gear out there lately. Walking from the car to the beach, I now take with me 3-4 kites, 2-3 line sets, 2-3 straps, hot or cold weather gear, music and camera gear. I really liked the Vector bag, and it is serving as my inspiration for the kite bag I want to make. I don't really like the roll-ups, and prefer something that opens wide and keeps its structure.
I realize I cannot possibly expect myself to sew at the same level as the guys who make the Vecotor bag. I'm going to try my best though, with my own design, suited for my needs and abilities. My chosen material is Cordura 600d fabric, and some Oxford 300d fabric. The size would be L-175cm, W-35cm, D-25cm.
My spare time is not something I usually have too much control over so the project progress might run fast at certain times, and very slow on others.
As I wrote, I'm mostly posting it here for your comments, and because my wife dosn't want to hear about it, so any reaction is appreciated
Here are some pictures of the Vector kite bag for comparison, from "Addict-Kite" review. Please don't judge me too harshly
