* Required Fields

Ideal for hike 'n fly use with lightweight gliders, the Concertina Compress Bag is a lightweight concertina bag that combines easy packing with good compression for easier carrying.

The Concertina Compress Bag is ideal for hike-n-fly or travel, designed to be extremely lightweight at only 200g. The unique new folding and compression system not only helps to save packing space in your rucksack but works to improve the rigidity of the rucksack for a better hiking experience.

Please note that the Concertina Compress Bag is not intended for glider storage; high performance gliders in particular may be damaged if compressed excessively.

Compatible gliders

The Concertina Compress bag works with all GIN lightweight gliders. There are 2 sizes, 3.0 and 2.7 meters, depending on the size and model of the pilots glider and the desired level of compression.

Recommended Gin Concertina Compress Bag size

Gin Yeti4 XXS 2.7m 2.7m bag
Gin Yeti4 XL 3.3m 3.0m bag (possible to fit in 2.7 with extra folding)

Also suitable for other similar, lightweight gliders from other manufacturers. For example, it's been confirmed that the Advance Sigma 9 in size 25 (a semi-light wing without many wires weighing 4.9kg) fits easily in the 3m version.

Gliders with a longer cord length than the compress bag can still be used. One extra step is needed to first fold the trailing edge to fit inside the bag.

Gin Concertina Compress Bag Reviews

Good but not quite small enough for my Ozone Ultralite 4 on 19/01/2021

Bought this for my Ultralite 4. It is definitely a step up in terms of compression in comparison to the Ozone Saucisse Lite but even the 2.7m size leaves a lot of compression space available. Good product in all, would be 5* if a two staged zip was added so you could flatten further if required.
Great solution for my hike and fly days on 03/11/2018

I was afraid about the size but when I receive my order I discovered that my new GIN concertina compress bag is perfect for my Advance Epsilon 7 26, it fits perfect inside and into my X lite rucksack when I hike and fly.
Love It! on 25/10/2017

I’m off on a 2 month flying holiday in South America and wanted to condense my wing as much as possible. I fly a BGD Base Lite (Size M) and decided to try the 2.7m version of the Concertina Bag. Fits beautifully! Really easy to use and, despite my concerns, protects the wing nicely. I’ll continue to use my BGD concertina bag for storage (nice and roomy) but the Gin concertina bag will be my travelling companion! Thanks Flybubble! :)
