Has anybody made or bought one of these? How well do they work?

We have made two and would do it again. I like dropping the main and then just zip it up. Sailrite has very good instructions.

Did you use their kit, or just buy the materials?

Doyle sail made the Stack Pack on Lunacy... works great. The main is as easy as the roller furl jib to deploy and stow - just blow the halyard and zip it up.

Having used Sailrite kits before, I would assume that you'll have no problems if you follow their methods. Here's an image that shows it pretty well.

I used the kit from Sailrite. Made a couple of minor changes in their design and added retractable lazy jacks. Very happy with the set up.

We made it straight from the SailRite kit and it turned out fine. They suggest somewhere using battens instead of PVC pipe (which we used) and I suspect the battens would do a better job of keeping it straight...but I'm not unhappy with what we have at all. Also, I'm not a great seamstress and it did take something stronger than my $50 Singer to finish where there were several layers to sew through.

Yes we used their materials but it was a little close on the sunbrella, not much room for mistakes. I added extra lazyjack attachments because I donít use a topping lift to tie the end up.

I really like the idea and the ease of sail-paks, but just can't get by all the stuff hanging on the bottom of the sail. I do think the battens looks better than the snagging PVC pipes.

The stack pack isn't attached to the sail. If the lazy jacks are eased, it can be lowered and lashed to the boom under the foot of the sail (for racing).
