Our modern twist on the classic diamond kite. It’s 37” tall unfurled, but folds into a pouch that’s barely a foot long, perfect for backpack, briefcase, or that spur-of-the-moment getaway to the great outdoors. It’s dye-sublimated with brilliant fractal-based geometric patterns onto colorfast ripstop polyester to create a spectacular piece of flying art that’ll last for years.
To assemble, just pull it out and let the rods spring into their connectors; the spars are connected by bungee cord just like a tent pole so there’s nothing to lose and no way to assemble it backwards. Comes with a colorful 2-part matching tail, flying line and winder. Easy instructions are printed on the sleeve, flies eagerly even in light winds.
Unique folding clasp keeps the kite flat for storage with a mesh pocket for your flying lines. Open the clasp like a book and kite springs instantly into shape, ready for action. Just clip on your line and toss into the air for unforgettable fun. Quick-start flying instructions are printed permanently on the inside of the clasp. Makes a great gift!

These "Stowaway" Prism kites are wonderful!
Once airborn, the Diamond kite is incredibly stable. That said, this kite will easily stand up to the odd but inevitable crash landing. Just remember that is designed for lighter winds (up to about 15 mph.
On both the Prism kites I've gotten I had to adjust the bridle up a bit higher than the way it comes, but this is easy enough with the slip knots.
The kite, line and handle pack up very neatly into a funky little carrying bag that you can stow in any backpack or bag.
I think these kites would make great gifts for young and old.

Great kite. Pretty in the sky. Easy to fly for a beginner.

I wanted to start flying kites with my 6-year-old daughter, but I lacked kite flying experience and I couldn't seem to keep any of her cheaper kites in the air. A quick search lead me to this particular kite, which was universally well reviewed.
Another quick Google brought me to the Kite Guys, who set me up with this kite, a great halo reel, and a few basic but invaluable tips. Bud (the head Kite Guy) is a stand up dude, and he really went above and beyond for me.
My daughter and I tried the kite that same evening, and it was pure bliss. It lifted right out of my hands, and within a minute I had let out all the line. It just stayed up there until it was time to bring it in, but we were having so much fun with it we re-launched it twice. It was so easy to fly that even she was also able to launch and fly it without problems. And as advertised, it folded up into a tiny package which slipped easily into my cargo pant pocket for the walk home. Perfect!
I will definitely return to the Kite Guys when it's time to buy my first stunt kite.

The Prism Stowaway Diamond, performs very well, even in the lighter breezes that make it difficult for other kites to remain aloft. The colours are beautiful, especially in direct sunlight and quite striking against a blue sky. It was everything I was hoping for when I purchased it, and flew even steadier than I was expecting. I also love that it flies at a high angle, very sleek and efficient.
