Sib manufacturers take note

Why make the bag that contains the rolled sib so tight? Its almost impossible to get the sib in unless rolled up perfectly and even then you put a stress on the open zip which can damage it.
Every lifting course I attended said the proper way to lift heavy unwieldy object was against your chest with a straight back, bending the knees.How about a few handles on the bag to make this possible, instead of the usual useless shoulder straps.No one should attempt to carry a handbag that heavy.

Thats exactly what i was think today mate when i had to carry my 5 piece floor section from the shed to the car.
Its only 20m or so but all that weight on one shoulder made me puff a little.
Mines also supposed to have the side stringers and 2 seats in there

i used to get my yam360s into its bag no problem - use your inflator to get every last bit of air out of it then roll it up starting with the transom. also i wouldnt have called it a handbag, more of a shoulder bag. i would agree however that handles on each end would make more sense and would even encourage a two man lift.

My Zodiac rolls up in the cover but it's really a 2 man lift and the bag is useless really, so I got one made extra strong handles got one for the outboard as well

Handles

My Quicksilver SIB bag has handles at either end, not that it's really a bag as it opens out flat and then wraps round the SIB with straps. Makes it easy to carry though.

My Excel bag opens up to a cross. Its tightened with straps and double D rings so very easy to loosely put in the bag (as it is now for winter). You can pack it in tightly to save space but I never have. Two carry handles too.

Some SIB manufacturers have taken note.

Same cross shape in Honwave. Better if handling 2 different bags rather than one, much less stress on my back.
