    Product Description

    ITW Altitude Box Kite
    The Altitude Box looks fragile but it can take a lot of wind and in strong wind it roars! It looks different from different angles, so tie your line to a kite anchor and walk around to enjoy the view from all sides. Lightweight and efficient, it's a high-angle flier that's happy in a wide range of winds. Easy to launch and fly, it's made of ripstop nylon with fiberglass spars. 3'-4" x 3'-4". 46" case. Use 50-lb. Dacron line.

    Having managed to find some sunshine and blue sky since I wrote my original review, I can report that the Altitude looks even better in such conditions, as shown in my new video http://youtu.be/qoqp4EvYfQM . I want to get this in the air with the Elevation box, but have been unable to do so at the moment. I think they will look great together.

    Having waited a long time for this kite, I was delighted to receive it yesterday - unfortunately during a long period of very wet weather. However, I found a gap between showers today and got it into the air. It is a very attractive kite, and I'm sure it will look even better when the sun is shining. Altitude is a good "sister" to ITW's Elevation box. Of the two, this one is easier to assemble, lighter, and has considerably less pull. It also is a little more interesting in design, and as the description says, looks different from every angle. It is less sturdy than the Elevation, and although we are told that it will fly in winds up to 30mph, I'm not sure I would trust it to survive that treatment. Time will tell! Anyway, it's a good, easy to fly, addition to the ITW range of kites, and certainly one of the most interesting box kites available. I have uploaded a video of the kite to Youtube: http://youtu.be/vgGd978VOrM and will make another one when our so-called summer weather improves.
