    I have seen comments on threads on here that people take kites...

    What kites do you take and use?

    I have a powerkite I need to swap for cash if anyone is interested.

    Hq-Kite 'Pocket Sled Rainbow', a hikers kite at 26gr I've had with me on every hike the last couple years .... until a rig line snapped and it flew away... This is the replacement:

    Tom, you’re shameless. Flying a rainbow kite while wearing a cuben poncho. Beauty and the beast.

    "Kite-wearing man launching kite" would work as a caption for that photo.

    I gave my grand daughter a pocket sled kite when we were camping last year and it was great fun. So I have bought myself one to enjoy when I’m out on my own.
