There have been several posts in the past about traveling with the inflatable kayaks. The Hobie kayak storage bag is not necessarily adequate to prevent damage to the boat. Some people suggested pre-packing the kayak in a tarp before putting it in the Hobie bag. I've done that -- despite being a tight fit, it can be done! The more we pack & unpack the inflatables, the better we get at it. I've looked for other solutions on the market and have found very few. I just saw this 'raft' bag (http://www.outdoorplay.com/NRS-Raft-Boat-Bag
) and the sizes seem like they might work (see 'sizing chart' on right hand upper corner). I'd be interested in hearing if anyone else has found a good system to protect their inflatables while traveling.
