Default snowboard bag for air travel

Thinking of heading overseas in the new year for some snowboarding. What do you guys recommend for a snowboard bag that's suitable for air travel?

I need one that can fit a 158 cm board (just 1), bindings, boots, helmet, ski pants, ski jacket.

I've checked out the Oakley 3.0 board bag but it seems to have been discontinued. I've found the 155 cm ones for a discount but I'd think putting a 158 cm board in a 155 cm bag is pushing it?

Thanks.

I recommend the OGIO wheeled bags. I believe they make a couple of models but mine has an expansion for length that you just unzip and I can fit all my gear and my 161cm board with no problems.

I see that we are possibly living in the same vicinity. Where did you get your OGIO from?

Question airline regulations

according to various airline sites, the linear length limit of a snowboard bag (LxWxH) is 62 inches.

I'm looking at the oakley 3.0 because it's 155cm but I really like the ogio but it's 160cm. you think I can get away with the 160cm (63" length)?

plus, what's the weight difference between the oakley 3.0 and the ogio caddy?

Most airlines waive the size limitations for snowboard bags, check their websites for specifics. You will still have to come under their weight limit which shouldn't be hard with a reasonable amount of gear.

BTW I just got a Dakine low roller which I really like. My highbacks don't fit unless I take them off, but I think most bags would have that problem with the bigger highbacks of todays bindings.

I have the same one, and it is great for traveling.

Just make sure you get one that is padded seeing as how it gets thrown around.

Stay away from the Rome bags. Mine tore the first time I took it on a plane. The boards were protected, but the bag separated from part of the zipper. Of course, the same airline also slashed my luggage and broke off 3 of the 4 wheels, then LOTS my board when I got back to Indy. They said they don't cover broken wheels and it took them 5 days to get my board to me.

I hate airlines so much...

Man Flick Montana's experience makes me nervous. I'm going snowboarding in late December, and I have to bring my board on a plane. I'm flying Virgin America. I hope that wasn't what he was flying.
