Hi all. I am looking at buying a Kite bag soon. I have heard good things about both of these bags, but which one would you personally recommend and why?
Thanks in advance,
Alfredo.

I much preferred the design of the Vector so I went with that one.  It's a great bag - very easy to zip open a bit and find the kite you want without getting sand into the bag.  I also like the ability to hang the bag from either end in order to store it in a small space.

I've never actually tried the other bag, I just went off pictures and searches for information

both are great bags and you really couldn't go wrong with either, but like tom, i prefer the vector. the rainfly and backpackability™ of the flying wings bag are both things i envy though.

we fly frequently at night and i needed a bag i could more easily see after the sun went down so i wouldn't trip on it, and the white swoops on the vector really help. now i just trip on the other guys kite bags.

a wind of change has some photos up of the vector bag which do a good job of showing the pockets.

Thanks for all of your opinions. I was already leaning toward the Vector, but now it is for sure. I feel like the vector is a better value, too. I really don't mind that it does not come wth a rain coat. I don't fly in the rain, EVER. Smiley
Thanks again,
Alfredo.
