Triple8Sol Here you go: K2 Padded Snowboard Bag 2013 | evo

Triple8Sol Cheapest way to go would be to get a bag that doesn't have any padding, and then put in your own padding such as your outerwear (pants/jackets) or even your own foam or bubble wrap or whatever. Slightly less annoying way would be to spend more and get a fully padded bag. Look for off-brands besides Dakine/Burton/Volcom/Lib etc...and of course anything with wheels will be more expensive as well.

sangsters I've got a Dakine Tour, think I got it got $50.

I've flown out of LGA, EWR, and JFK so far, no harm, no foul.

Last trip the bag carried two boards (removed the bindings from one), my boots, second set of bindings, assorted clothing. It's been great.

That thing looks awesome, they ever go on sale in the off season? I can't justify what I'd spend on a board right now for a bag..but...soon.

binarypie I have a cheap burton roller bag that has some padding.

I also have the same model bag from 2001.

Both have been great after numerous flights.

I've had a few bags trashed, next one I buy is armor sides, but I also live in NY where the airports are brutal.
I'm not saying shit doesn't or won't get trashed I'm just saying that I havn't had an issue yet (knock on wood). I just toss tons and tons of clothes in.

Re: Need advice on board bag

A few features I could suggest are wheels, compartments, and a bag that's some what rigid with padding (not floppy.)

The padding just offers peace of mind when it gets thrown into the mix, wheels for obvious reasons (just makes traveling easier) , compartments to organize and separate your goods, and rigidity to maintain its shape.

I use a Dakine, not sure of the model, but I got it used for 50 bucks and it comes with all the key features. Quality stitched design with heavy grade zippers. I use a 149 board, but I believe the bag can fit up to a 160ish. The extra space is nice, but I can throw in extra clothes, food, playboy mags etc.
