    Concourse Double vs Fall Line Double ski bags with photos, January 26, 2016
    By 

    I was able to fit a pair of Rossignol Sin 180cm skis, two pair of ski boots, my helmet, goggles, heavy Helly Hanson snowpants, Arcteryx coat (shell) and Mountain Hardware fleece. Even though the bag I ordered was a 175cm, 180cm skis still fit. Total weight of this bag with the gear is 35lbs, so under the 50lb limit of airlines.

    When I was doing research, I was considering buying either this bag or the larger, more expensive Dakine Concourse Double 185cm bag. The weight of the Concourse Double 185cm bag with all of the same gear is 37lbs, so 2lbs heavier than the Fall Line Double. You can see photo comparisons of the two. The fall line double isn’t much smaller than the Concourse Double but it still sufficient to hold everything I need for $100 less.

    However, if you think you might need a second pair of skis, then go with the Concourse Double. It also has more clips and protective padding to separate skis inside of the bag.

    Red & black bag = concourse double. Black bag = Fall Line Double.

    Best option I could find, but still not great from a female’s perspective, January 21, 2016
    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    The bag definitely fits all my stuff, and I will certainly be using it for air travel. However, as a female skier with 155cm skis, it does feel like a bit too much bag. The skis don’t reach to the top of the bag (by a long shot), and as a result it wants to sag or fall over, making it hard to prop up. To partly circumvent this problem, I have ended up storing both of my boots in the lower compartment (next to the wheels), and placed lighter things (helmet, goggles, etc) in the 2nd, higher indoor pocket. It easily fits my skis, poles, ski boots, pants, jacket, 2 pairs of gloves, fleece pants and socks, my boot bag (figure I might as well bring it to provide extra padding for my skis/fill out the bag so it doesn’t crumple as much/make transport of my ski equipment from the cabin we stay at to the mountain easier). I’m also a little skeptical if this bag will be able to fit in the back of my car for transport to the airport. Naturally on longer trips, we would easily fit it in the rocket box on top of the car. However, since we live in Arizona, we don’t make it a habit of keeping that thing on.

    Overall, I’m satisfied with the bag. I do wish it had been easier to find a female oriented bag for smaller skis and more compact equipment. This was the best option I could find that provided: 1) Compression straps, 2) interior straps to secure skis & poles, 3) interior pockets for boots/secure storage, 4) durable exterior zippers and wheels, 5) protective/durable seeming interior lining.

    I will also state I’m a little concerned about the durability/strength of the interior pockets to hold ski boots. I’m not sure how well that material will hold up.

    Note: I have not yet traveled with the bag. My first trip will be in February.
