Sorry for another one! I searched through the whole forum, but I haven't yet figured out an answer to my question.
Last year I got the k2 Fastback snowboard bag, the bag is here (except mine is black and not this ugly olive color). K2 Fastback Snowboard Bag Olive 166cm | SnowShack.com
The description of the board is as follows:
The K2 Fastback Snowboard Bag is a fully padded snowboard bag designed to hold one snowboard with bindings. The K2 Fastback Snowboard bag is a feature-rich bag that includes a tuck-away backpack harness for the ultimate in carrying convenience. A full-length zipper makes this bag easy to load and unload. Constructed of rugged 600D PVC-back polyester, and lined with durable tarpaulin lining, the K2 Fastback Snowboard bag is ready for anything the road throws at it. The K2 Fastback Snowboard bag will hold one snowboard, up to 166cm in length.
* Sleek, fully padded shaped board bag
* Tuck-away, backpack shoulder harness
* ID card window for easy identification
* Full-length zipper for easy access
* Center Velcro padded handle
* Durable tarpaulin lining
* Dimensions: 166cm x 33cm x 27.5cm
My question to ya'll is, is this board worthy of flying with? I've read a lot of reviews in trying to determine what qualifies a bag as being air-travel approved, and really all I've seen is "big" and "padded." I'm flying from NJ (JFK) to Whistler (VAN) for New Years and I want to make sure all my stuff makes it there safely.
The K2 bag is somewhat padded, and I can fit two boards in there with bindings, pants, and other pieces of equipment. If I got another bag, it would be the Dakine High Roller or the Burton Wheelie Bag. My thought is that the K2 is probably not good enough, but I want to make sure that before I buy a new bag, I buy one that has more features.
Hope ya'll can help!
