Paddle Bag^

Post by Darksideup » Fri Jul 13, 2012 6:44 pm

Can anyone help? I'm looking for a paddle bag to take two split paddles, about 1.2m long. Anyone know of a manufacturer or suplier?

A Google search gives many hits, but a good deal seems to be this one:

Thanks for the reply Nick but I have trawled the internet, the only place that seemed to stock what I required was Scottish Paddler Supplies unfortunately the owner died. The Nookie paddle bag is too long at 2.05m, I am looking for a bag of about 1.2m so that I can store them in the car boot when split.

I'm fairly certain Nookie also do a bag for splits - also contact KariTek who have a suitable bag. Mike

There are three different sizes of bag from Nookie, and the one for splits or C1 paddles is much shorter at 62" (1.57 m), as shown on the features tab here: http://www.nookie.co.uk/paddlebag/index.htm
Not as short as you want, but the shortest I can find.

Thanks Mike and Nick, I have tried the Nookie 1.65m bags but they are of a very heavy material and quite hard to bend. I would need to bend a bag of this length in order to get it in my car boot. Aparently Lendal do a Midi bag for splits but I can't get any info on it, I've even emailed Lendal and had no reply.

I have just sent an email to KariTek asking about their bags. Thanks MikeB, I could not find these on their site initially (very confussing site, I expected them to be in the paddles section).

I have a Kari Tek paddle bag which fits two split paddles. It's very tough with a shoulder strap and handle and I'm very pleased with it.

I have 2 brasca split paddle bags, they are really good, close fitting with fill zip and carry strap. You can also try Jantex or one of the Australian surf ski makes like orca. If you are near Nottingham next weekend there is a regatta so there will be a few traders there.

+1 on the NRS bag. Not the easiest to get in the UK but a superb bag!
