Gear Bag by Optiparts

Gear Bag by Optiparts Optiparts Gear Bag

This gear bag is especially designed for the dinghy sailor. Once you have one you will never travel without it. It is the perfect bag for travel or just hauling clothes and gear back and forth to the club. I use mine as a tennis bag. One end panel and the top are made of nautical carbon fiber and Kevlar sailcloth.

The combination of high-tech sailcloth and waterproof blue/gray polyester panels gives this bag its attractive appearance. Its five sections include two large wet and dry expandable compartments with heavy-duty no rust zippers. The wet compartment folds away when not in use. There are two-zipped 4-inch full end pockets, one with netting for wet items, and the other with PX10 sailcloth. A third smaller pocket has a Velcro closure and is the place for securing your tickets or passport.

The bag has a detachable, adjustable strap in addition to two permanent nylon cloth handles that Velcro together. One of the side panels has a clear nametag pocket for your identification. Size 70 x 35 x 30 cm.
