i just got a new snowboard bag for my new board and i cant fit my board in with my bindings on. the board is 153 and the bag is for 157, and i have to force my board into the bag and it barely closes, so i was wondering if you are supposed to take the bindings off to travel or did i just get a shitty bag?
In what way does it not fit? The highbacks? I just got a Dakine low roller and it won't close up unless I take the highbacks off my Burton Missions. Kind of annoying but doesn't surprise me seeing as how big highbacks are these days.
Yeah just find a bigger bag. you should be able to fit your board in with bindings but some bindings are simply built different so look around. I know I have to get a new one this year as I just got Flow bindings so I need a deaper bag. Look at different board shops or online, they're out there. Oftentimes the company that makes the bindings also sells a bag that will fit, as in the case with the Flows.
I bought the $90 Rome bag and my 165 with bindings fits in just fine. I even have room for my other board under a layer of plastic in the bag. I'd love to recommend it, but it tore at the zipper line the first time I had it on an airplane. The bag says it is especially for travel, but I don't know. Maybe the airline is just THAT violent with baggage nowadays.
