Gin Gliders was founded in 1998 by paraglider designer and competition pilot Gin Seok Song Some of us follow the movement, some of us follow our own path, some of us fly paragliders, some of us fly GIN Gin's philosophy is simple: to design paragliders that he and every other pilot love to fly. This philosophy applies equally to an entry-level wing such as the Bolero, and to the world-renowned competition wing, the Boomerang. No wing is released without Gin's complete satisfaction. Gin has over 20 years experience in designing and manufacturing paragliders and is supported by an equally experienced team, both within the company in Korea and in a worldwide network of distributors and dealers. The "GIN Team" has dominated the Paragliding World Cup every year since 1998 and has enjoyed countless other competitive successes in World Cups, World Championships and National Championships. This high level of expertise provided by dedicated professionals guarantees you the best possible product support and after sales service.

The main function of the carrier bag is to carry all your paragliding equipment on your back when you are not flying. Of course, it should contain not only the paraglider, but also the harness, helmet, possibly gloves, radio and flight instruments. There are a few criteria to consider when buying a rucksack. The first criterion is the total volume of the rucksack. This is commonly referred to as the bag volume and is measured in litres (L). In fact, you have to bring a more or less folded paraglider, and any other equipment. Therefore, we recommend that you choose a bag capacity that corresponds to your wing size. The 50L bag easily accommodates a single or light glider, while the 90L bag is suitable for gliders with a large surface area. At Grands Espaces we encourage you to bring your equipment and test the bag capacity against your packing and equipment when choosing between our different carry bags. Another important criterion is the carrying comfort of the carry bag. During approach walks, you have to carry your bag on your back, which can take tens of minutes. The equipment can weigh up to 10 kilograms or more and, if not properly cared for, it can injure your shoulders and back. This is why the paraglider carry bag is equipped with adjustable and reinforced shoulder straps. Finally, paragliding requires many small accessories such as flight instruments, radios, belt cutters, water bottles, etc. To avoid stuffing all your equipment into the main bag and wasting precious time, the pack includes easy-to-reach and practical storage pockets to optimise storage and even spread the load. A few years ago, when you bought a new paraglider, it came with a paraglider bag. Nowadays, only a few brands offer an included carry bag. The wing comes with a compression bag instead. That's why Our Paragliding Shop strives to offer all these paragliding bags at the best prices. Find out more about our carrier bags:
