Ozone Saucisse Lite
Being a more basic, lightweight concertina packing bag, the Saucisse Lite is best-suited to lighter, more compact wings that don't require too much support.
The M size Saucisse Lite is best-suited to lighter, more compact, smaller wings with maximum chord lengths less than 2.65m. It's not for ideal some larger wings with thicker chords. The L size fits wings with medium and larger maximum chord lengths of between 2.60 and 3.24 m.
See the list of wings on our Ozone Saucisse Pack product page as a further guide for correct sizing.

Ozone Saucisse Lite Reviews
At the same time the design based on dozens of buckles is maybe safer for the cloth (than a zipper), but it is also far more time consuming and annoying. If not only for the workload, than for a fact that each buckle and its strap will try to catch as many lines as possible, when removing the bag.
It does pretty good job in keeping everything inside, but not as good as if there was a zipper. Having to choose between this and something with the same weight and a zipper that is safe for the cloth, I'd definitely go for the latter. But still, it's just a concertina bag and it does the job :)
When it first came out, the Saucisse Lite was a different approach to a light concertina bag compared to most, including Ozone's, with 5 pairs of clips and no zip or leading edge 'band'. It's roughly half the weight of some concertina bags (there are some lighter), and therefore could give somewhere in the region of 300g weight reduction, depending on which bag you compare it to. It achieves this mainly by using lighter material and a simplistic design.
The Saucisse Lite replaces all fixings on the bag with a system of 5 pairs of external straps and clips along the length of the bag. It's not quite as good as some of more featured bags, but can be nearly as good if used slightly differently. At the top end of the bag, the clips and light material hold the leading edge together. Once the leading edge is packed, the other clips can just be fastened whilst the glider is packed away.
If you detach your glider from the harness there are a couple of elastic loops at the bottom end of the bag to tidy the risers away with. A separate compression strap can create a bundle if you need to.
There’s a little familiarisation period, but once this is over you’ll find that the features on the conventional bags are not missed, and that with a slightly different approach you achieve the same result, but possibly a little bit quicker.
