Kahoona v5

Postby sean_townsend » Fri Jul 19, 2013 10:19 am

OK, it's time to replace my 9.5 V2, i want to stick with the Kahoona but i remember reading a while back about the bags being slimmed down, i liked my old style bag, it had plenty of room for a badly rolled up kite, pump hose and helmet. What kind of bags do the V5 come with?

My V5's t came standard with a simple nylon stuff sack (like a sleeping bag stuff sack) which can be used to store the kite either fully deflated or with struts inflated . For extra $$ you can upgrade to a heavier duty "suitcase" style bag for storing the kite deflated. The nice "backpack" style bags that were standard with the earlier Kahoona's don't appear to be offered any more. I agree those bags were great, I wished I had held onto them as what is available now is far less versatile or as well built.

Thanks, that's what I thought, i think it was a bad move, the backpack style bag were great especially if you have to walk to we're you're kiting like I do, if best don't supply an alternative then I may have to change brands, the sleeping bag style kite bag just isn't good enough for me.

Simon can you help me out here please?

I love these bags. In fact, i usually replace my bag immediately upon receiving the kite
