The COMPRESSBAG TUBE combines the advantages of a concertina packing bag with those of a COMPRESSBAG. Cell on cell packing remains simple, and profile shape and glider life is likewise protected. After closing and folding the tube the volume is compressed by a long zip.

Size chart guide

Advance COMPRESSBAG TUBE size chart

  • Green: Wing fits perfectly inside the COMPRESSBAG TUBE (trailing edge does not stick out). 
  • Yellow: Trailing edge sticks out. If you you want to save weight and material choose the smaller size and fold the trailing edige in. Otherwise go for the larger size.

Flybubble: Like the Advance TUBEBAG, it's possible to keep the wing attached to the harness with the COMPRESSBAG TUBE but this means zipping up the bag from leading edge to trailing edge.

Features

Flexible rings with EASY CONNECT

For securing the risers, to prevent them getting tangled in the lines.

When the COMPRESSBAG TUBE is spread out and the glider laid on top, while the pilot still has the harness lying on the ground, the risers can be transferred directly from the carabiners to the EASY CONNECT rings; so that they can be similarly reconnected to the carabiners before the next flight. Caution: this needs a disciplined routine! We strongly advise less experienced pilots not to do this.

Netting fabric

For ventilation when uncompressed.

Neoprene openings top and bottom

For connected risers. The pilot can choose whether the lines leave at the trailing edge or emerge over the leading edge.

All the way round zip with anti-snagging slider

Gentle compression. Anti-snagging slider on the long zip. Does not catch paraglider fabric or lines while zipping up.

Practical carrying handle

Easy to pick up and carry.

Window pocket

For your name or glider ticket.

Flybubble review of the Advance COMPRESSBAG TUBE

"Advance have now produced a concertina bag with compression built in, which comes with a few new features over the redesigned TUBEBAG light. There’s now a dedicated stretchy panel to help secure the leading edge (LE) and a cloth panel covers the wing material (and lines) where the zip runs. There are also two zip heads and the option to feed lines out of either end if you’re leaving your harness attached, but the zip closes from the LE down to the trailing edge (TE) (like the TUBEBAG light). 

You can lead the lines out of either end but you need to choose when you unzip: if you want them out the LE of the wing then unzip from the LE first, if you want lines out the TE then unzip from TE first. You can't swap ends without doing up the zips on the empty bag.

It’s very high quality with sturdy and precise manufacturing and the usual Advance attention to detail.

The whole package is designed to be folded into four. Extra-small higher-aspect ratio wings may actually need to be folded in three so the risers lay on the TE before tucking in to meet the LE that is folded in to the centre. It does take a little bit of lining up to make sure the compression zip will run around the edge and there’s a fair bit of squish to be done before you can fully close the zips but it makes for a nice, neat, semi-rigid block in the rucksack. As a result I have more space in the bag and a more comfortable pack to carry.

This sort of packing isn't ideal for gliders with stiff full length chord-wise rods. For example, most two-liners typically have extensive and often rather stiff reinforcing, which doesn't like being bent. These require wrapping the wing around something--for example, either 'packing pillows' or, if suitable, a lightweight, compact harness--to avoid sharp bends in the rods. Most normal and lightweight wings are fine and will easily fit, however.

As a rule of thumb, up to M size wings should be fine in the 260cm size bag. I expect that most larger sized wings will be OK in the 300cm size, especially if they’re higher aspect (shorter chord)."
