Banana bags are essential for hire companies and anyone who wants to make their life with their Lotus Belle easier. They are shaped like a large banana which enables you to store the wall section of your tent without having to remove the steel poles from the canvas. This shaves your pitching time down to around 20-25 minutes, and packing down time down to around 10 minutes.

Our banana bags come in two variations - our "standard" bag is a thinner, cream canvas style bag, whilst our "heavy duty" bag is thicker and more robust than the standard variation.

A banana bag is a great addition to your Lotus Belle if:

1. ...you have a long car or vehicle to put it in (the bags are 1.8m long, and around 25 - 30cm wide in each direction, but squashy) - they WILL fit in MOST cars, but do check first - we put ours up over the back seats of the car from the boot, and the other end finishes up just behind the passenger seat headrest.

2. ...you are planning on putting your tent up and down regularly at different locations over the summer.

A banana bag is not such a useful thing if:

1. You have a very small car.

2. You are putting your tents up on a semi-permanent campsite and leaving them there for the whole summer.

NB: Your tent will come with a perfectly adequate canvas holdall so a banana bag is not an essential accessory, but many people do find them useful. They also help to split up the weight of your tent.
