    Good bag, but I recommend to noodle the ends for added protection, March 8, 2015

    Nice bag overall and really like the separate compartments for the boots for those muddy parking lot days. I have a 159cm board and got the 165cm bag. I haven’t air traveled with it yet, but will do so end of the month. I’ll post an update then on how it holds up. I don’t see why it would not hold up, since it seems to be well constructed. With a new board this year, I wanted extra protection for the ends. I took one of those cheap swimming noodles and cut it in half. I then slit it down length wise and wrapped it around the board edges. It worked out really well and it also filled out the bag nicely. See the blue foam on the ends in the bag.

    I bought this bag as a cheaper alternitive to hard cased or roller flight bag. I’ve had it for about 1 month now and it seems to be holding up. Its very lightly padded, but seems like it will hold up well. I’ve flown with it 1 time and with american airlines it qualifies for the ski bag policy. This means that they charge regular checked bag fees for this bag, NOT the oversized/overweight fees, which is a huge plus. The bag has a large main portion where your board with attached bindings goes. I currently have a Burton 157mm board and Burton mission bindings. The board fits a little loose as expected (because its a 165mm bag) but not so loose that I’m worried about it. It also has 2 boot pockets which fit my size 10 boots with room to spare. The boot pockets are offset from where the bindings are places on the board so it doesn’t get to bulky. The zippers will accomidate TSA style locks. I can fit my complete setup in this bag which eliminates the neeed for another bag for gear. When I fly I can fit my pants, coat, beanie, facewarmer, gloves, chilis, hoodie and a few tools with plenty of room to spare. It comes with a handle in the middle of the bag which is what I use to carry it but it also comes with a shoulder strap that attaches to both ends for easier carrying.

    Overall Rating: I would reccommend this for a light travel flight bag or just somewhere to keep everything you use to snowboard. For heavy traveling (more than a few times a month) I would probably spend a little more for something else. However for the money I feel like its an excellent bargain.

    This bag is perfect. Dont get the wheels, they are too bulky. Unless you only use the board for flying I wouldnt bother with wheels, I spent two hours comparing bags. This has it all, padding durability, good zipper, nice pockets. Was torn between this and the Lo Roller, but glad that I opted for this bag without the bulk of the wheels. GET IT!
