Suggestion for heavier kayaks (or maybe for weaker users?)

I have a convertible, and must agree with a previous user that packed in its case it's heavy and awkward to handle. Strangely, when inflated it's not half as bad to move around!

Anyway, I've found that the trolley I bought for use in portages will also work if strapped to the base of the packed bag. I tried the folding 'sack-barrow' type trolley, but it was more tippy, and meant carrying a single-use item with me.

The only thing stopping this solution from being ideal for me, is that the duffel bag only has the long strap handles on top. A smaller 'suitcase type' handle at the ends would be a big help. I'm going to add them to mine, but thought I'd suggest they be added as standard
