Re: Need advice on board bag
A few features I could suggest are wheels, compartments, and a bag that's some what rigid with padding (not floppy.)
The padding just offers peace of mind when it gets thrown into the mix, wheels for obvious reasons (just makes traveling easier) , compartments to organize and separate your goods, and rigidity to maintain its shape.
I use a Dakine, not sure of the model, but I got it used for 50 bucks and it comes with all the key features. Quality stitched design with heavy grade zippers. I use a 149 board, but I believe the bag can fit up to a 160ish. The extra space is nice, but I can throw in extra clothes, food, playboy mags etc.
