Snowboard backpack carriers
So Oakley has this backpack that says it can carry your snowboard/skis.
I never tried this, but does having a backpack to carry your snowboard more convenient than carrying by hand if say you parked in the back or just walking around the resort? Can a backpack really hold an entire snowboard with just straps & would it work out? Also if you had to go through parked cars or tight spaces, could you really carry a snowboard on your back without it swinging around or tripping you? If you carry by hand, at least you can pivot & rotate however you desire. Yeah, I guess your hands are free, but now you're carrying an awkward shaped item on your back.
I would be spending most of my day snowboarding than carrying a snowboard on my backpack. So is it worth the extra prep to attach a snowboard to a backpack if you're just walking to the lift? Is there a real purpose for a snowboard carrying backpack?
