Default Should I keep bindings on in Board bag?

Firstly, in general, I just want to know what you guys do. Do you keep them on, or dismount them?

Secondly, since I got my new board and bindings, I want to keep them in as good shape as possible. Would you recommend I take the bindings off and wrap them with some clothes to put at one of the tips of the board bag, or put them in a separate luggage?

OR

Keep them on there altogether and pack clothes around it (Which I do now)

Thank you,

Alban

Personally, I don't have a board bag, i throw my board in my back seat/trunk and it stays safe. I feel that taking them off and wrapping them individually is a bit excessive as riding will probably do more damage than having an assembled board in your bag. I say, if it fits in the bag with bindings installed, keep it that way!

Certainly on the Burton bags you will notice that it's shaped in a way to take the bindings in place.

And considering you are going to be packing clothes etc around and over the bindings I think leaving them on is the best way you could pack them.

Having said that, if you need to take several boards in one bag, you'd have no choice but to separate them.

Also I try to put 100% of my snowboarding\backcountry gear in my board bag from boots to base layers and just wheel it behind me or carry horizontally. Everything else I just jam into a large backpack and use that as my "carry on"(yea it pisses people off but I don't care) this allows to only check one bag and me to carry everything I need and still have a free hand.

I have traveled internationally with my board and kept the bindings on. I did rotate them so they were facing each other so they didn't stick out over the board. If you don't rotate them and have big highbacks they will be sticking out and vulnerable to big impacts.

Have you seen how they throw luggage at an airport?

Some people will say "fuck it just ride" but taking care of your shit is important IMO. No need to get anal but common sense is always good, your stuff should not die from anything other than riding. Plenty of clothes on top is good too, my board bag fits all my stuff in there. I put 2 boards in a s well but each with an edge guard like this.

??????SOLE GUARD ?????2 MIXCHK???????????? ??????? ??????????????? ???? ???????
