|dsciulli19||I have a burton padded gig bag (non wheelie) in 166 and it fit my board, boots, bindings, jacket, pants, and a few other items and it still weighed in under 50lbs for the Delta to consider it a standard carry-on. I would recommend!|

I've a Dakine Low Roller. Good price/quality ratio.
It fits board/binding/boots (in boot pockets)/backprotector/snowboarding clothes. Although being a 157 bag, it fits my 158 board easily and I even carried husbands 164 board with it. I prefered to have a snug one since it's more hany to maneuver.

if you plan on packing gear other than your board, get a bag that is a few cm's longer than your board for more space. that way you can also pack some soft gear / clothes at the tip and tail to protect the board.
as for wheelie vs non-wheelie, if the weight allowance on your airline is tight, opt for non-wheelie as the wheel gear / handle etc will increase the weight. i prefer non-wheelie for this reason and also because wheeling such a long heavy bag puts a lot of strain on your wrist. however, i never walk more than a few hundred meters carrying the bag so you might weight that into your decision-making process. i find that if you pack it well, the bag will be perfectly balanced in the middle whilst using the shoulder strap and is easy to carry.
i recommend Dakine... i've flown 6x with my bag and it has been bombproof... have even carried 2 boards on several occasions. a friend's Burton bag has not fared as well.

I think the main criteria is anything with padding, locks and wheels is a must!
Well that's what i think - I myself am also looking to buy a board bag!
Hope this helps

|chomps1211||Maybe it isn't/wasn't the two+ board type, but I could have sworn I've seen those for single boards for around $90?|
