Default Travel Bag 165cm VS 175 cm

looking to get the Dakine Tour for cross country travel and it only comes in 165cm and 175cm - which should I get for my 162cm deck?

thanks

Go big or go home! I'd get the larger bag. You might not absolutely need the space now, but it might come in handy later if you have to carry a spare deck (or someone's skis)

156 board. 166 bag here. It doubles as luggage for me so I don't have to check in a separate suitcase. Boots, bindings, goggles, thermals, jacket, hoodies, pants, gloves, tools, spare parts...under 50 lbs. too.

Then I just bring a carry for daily clothes and a backpack for laptop and quick change things.

Agreed. Go bigger than your board. it'll allow you extra space for the additional items such as gloves, clothes, goggles, boots, etc. Of course also depends on the type of bag and if it made to hold that type of gear.

I always come back with more shit than I left with and I never seem to pack for the ride home like I packed for the ride out. It's like I lose room on the way home. So I like the bigger than board bag.

Also something that happened to my friend. He had a not so great board bag that was tight as hell when packed. Maybe it was the luggage handlers at the airport, but when we got off the plane and picked up our bags, he had a nice long tear in his board bag. Probably a combo of tightness and handling.

just wanted to give an update on this bag... the 175cm rocks - I packed it full of clothes, my deck, bindings, helmet, etc. and it weighed in at 47.8 pounds and traveled wonderfully - no issues with the airlines, handling the luggage, etc.
