What is kit bag?

In a cave it is difficult, or even impossible, to transport your equipment in a backpack as it gets in the way far too much and gets stuck behind everything. A kit bag, on the other hand, is designed to be dragged, pushed or hoisted and is therefore ideal for transporting your materials through the cave. A distinction is made between 'normal' caving bags and canyoning bags. A caynoning bag is designed in such a way that water drains out quickly, to prevent you from having to carry kilos of water at a certain point. In contrast, water remains in the caving bags for a long time.
