Gin Concertina Compress Bag
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.
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.

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.

- 3.0m (70cm x 33cm)
- 200g (2.7m size)
