The COMPRESSBAG was previously delivered exclusively with the PROGRESS 2. In response to demand, Advance have now decided to offer it as an accessory. It comes in two sizes (S-M and L) and two colour combinations (Red-Black and Maize-Black).
Flybubble have measured the flat height and width of the COMPRESSBAG as follows:
SM: Top width unzipped 65cm (Zipped 48cm), tapered to bottom 46cm. Length of bag 78cm.
L: Top width unzipped 72cm (Zipped 54cm), tapered to bottom 50cm. Length of bag 78cm.
What's the advantage of the COMPRESSBAG?
ADVANCE introduces a compression bag so that the paraglider can be efficiently packed in the rucksack. The COMPRESSBAG replaces the usual inner bag. Compact stowing makes a rucksack much more comfortable to carry. It is ideal for compact rucksacks and reversible harnesses the PROGRESS 2.
How to use the COMPRESSBAG?
Pack your folded paraglider in the conically shaped COMPRESSBAG. After closing the side zips you can squash the air out of the bag, and reduce the glider volume considerably. This will leave enough room in the rucksack for clothes and instruments. Put the COMPRESSBAG in the top end of the rucksack and pull the rucksack side flaps up around the glider to hold it. The zips will then be easier to close. Then push the COMPRESSBAG down when both side zips are done up and the rucksack is horizontal.
