First choice would be an aerotec but they are hard to find used and 2300 new is too much at the moment

Not being awkward but I have found it hard to get the Aerotec into a super neat package. I reckon the main issue is that with both the ones I've owned the OE bag is too large and the straps tighten fully way before the boat is pulled down to its potential minimum.

Never owned or packed a T32 to compare.

I know you can't always replicate the makers package as new but maker's spec comparisons in cms are...

Honwave T32 - 112 65 38
Honwave T38 - 122 72 43
Aerotec 380 - 115 72 39
Fastroller 360 - 120 65 40
Fastroller 340 - 105 54 32

The very best I've owned related to length were the two ill fated Zodiac 360 Fastrollers which packed so neatly as this one shown in our holiday cottage...

Wow they fold neat, I need a sib that packs well because my boot is small, outboard and fuel tank take up most of the space
