Even more rarely a company updates their entire line and we find ourselves saying, "Great job!" Such is the case with the NEW Creatures of Leisure Surfboard Day Bags. We feel that these new Surfboard Day Bags will push the rest of the industry to innovate, exactly what we as surfers want. To see why I feel this way, please read on!
First, let's take a look at the Creatures of Leisure "Surf Lite" or "Lite" Surfboard Day Bags, which are available in Shortboard, Retro/Fish and Longboard Templates. The Creatures Surf Lite is very interesting, typically I am unimpressed with "price point" Surfboard Day Bags, as I feel they're never made very well. This is quite the contrary with the Surf Lite, sure it's a basic Day Bag, but sometimes that's all you need. (when it's done right) If you get a Surf Lite in your hands, you'll immediately love the color and feel of the 420D fabric, you can just tell it will hold up. I also appreciate that Creatures carried over their Diamond-Tech material from their standard Surfboard Day Bags to the nose of the Surf Lite. While a surfboard sock is a great option, Creatures of Leisure has given me good reason to table the sock for now and go with a Surf Lite.
Next, is the Creatures Of Leisure Surfboard Day Bag line, which comes in the same templates as the Surf Lite range, Shortboard, Retro/Fish and Longboard. Granted, you can tell by the features, look, feel and hence a bit higher price, that Creatures was going for a high end Surfboard Day Bag. The old adage holds true you get what you pay for and in this case I would like to mention, you get a 12 month warranty on all Creatures of Leisure Bags, which isn't something that we're used to. That said, these Surfboard Day Bags are awesome. The Diamond-Tech material is on point, not just some gimmick and is second only to the Creature X-Flow air ventilation system, which a I physically looked at for a while. Ventilation is becoming more and more important with your Day Bag as more surfboards go Epoxy. A surfboard made with Epoxy will not be able to stand extreme temperatures and will delaminate if kept to hot for to long. Creatures has you covered, the X-Flow system is well made and in my opinion will do it's job, keeping your surfboard nice an cool when tucked into a Creatures of Leisure Surfboard Day Bag.
