Default snowboard bag

Hi,
I finaly bought snowboard equipment for myself. got it all Board,boots,bindings and I have the jacket and pants already.
Now I want to buy a bag, but don't know which one to go for.

I will want a bag that can also be used when flying overseas, but most of the use will be for storage at home, and in the car when driving to the slopes.

What should I look for? what are the important things in a bag?
Is it important to get a bag with wheels?

Thanks,
Raoul

When flying, wheels will be very important...

But if I were you and not planning on any flights with it anytime soon, I'd just get a cheap bag such as the Burgon Gig or Dakine Pipe bags...they're cheap and solid and should hold out for basic trips and storage

Seeing as how you are taking it oversees... defintley get one with wheels. Also look for one that has seperate pockets to stuff some gear in. Something made out of a sturdy material so that it doesn't rip on you in a year.

There's some great bags out there, good luck finding your's!

I got an Ogio Caddy bag last year and I really like it. It has wheels and it has room for two boards (or two sets of ski's). I can only keep my bindings on one board, but it works for me since I just switch my bindings between both my boards. If you want to keep ski's in it, you can extend the bag up to 195cm, but without any extensions, it can hold a 160cm board. It seems pretty durable, and I haven't had any problems with it. I loaned it to a friend and he strapped it to the top of his car for a trip to Colorado, it was covered in road salt, but a blast from the garden hose cleaned it up.

My board is a Burton Custom 156 (DAA....)
I was looking at the Burton Wheelie Gig Bag, it comes in 156 and 166 - which would fit my board, is the 156 too short?
Maybe I should be looking at the Dakine Low Roller (it comes in 157)?

Do you really think baggage handlers care what you have inside?

Go big. Bigger is always better.

Go with 166. Tad more room for your board if you want to put anything else in there besides your board. And the actual difference is 10cm. Were talking cm here. Thats nothing so go with the 166.

I realy need help ASAP. I am going to buy the DAKINE LOW ROLLER bag. it comes in 157 or 165.
My board is a Burton Custom 2008 size 156. Will the board fit in the 157 bag, or is it too small.
I found this bag for a great price but the coupon expires tomorrow.
PLEASE HELP - does anyone have this bag? (157)

I just messured the board. The 156 board actually messures 154 in length. So it should fit fine into a 157 bag.
