You mean standard checked bag right? I'm flying Delta to Jackson Hole on Saturday I'm sure they'll have an issue bringing my snowbaord on as a carry-on

neni 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.

ju87 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.

0kev_ 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

mikerod553 will these fit three boards? as me, my brother and my old man all have boards and trying to save some money by fitting them into one board bag, if thats even a good idea?

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?

DevilWithin Wow...good deal on that hard case. Usually they are like $200...I might have to pick one up.
