What is your opinion of this product?
This is the only box kite I own (arrived last week with a Double DC and a 19' mesh delta), and I couldn't wait to fly it this afternoon in gusty 5-12 mph winds in Tampa. Easy to assemble! Because of trees around the backyard field blocking the wind a bit, I but it on end, walked out 50 feet of line, gave it a jerk into a small gust, and it was airborne and climbing quickly. This kite looked FABULOUS in sunshine! It's trapezoid shape makes it look much more interesting (to me) than a simple box kite, as the wind gives different aspects and colores as it flies. With the gusty winds, during relative lulls, this box dropped a lot more than a Delta or DC or foil, but climbed right back up with the next gust. Fun to fly, and fun to watch, and not a heavy puller. This is a lot of bang for the buck, and I'm very pleased with it. Can't wait to fly it on a beach.

What is your opinion of this product?
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.
What is your opinion of this product?
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.
