So I have to "sling" the handle over my shoulder and drag the bag behind me in order to engage the wheels properly. This is a pain, especially if you're wheeling a computer case or a pullman in the other hand.

Another plus one on the Dakine low roller
Been on Four trips with it, all transporting not only my setup, but my birds.
2 boards 4 boots 4 bindings and a few sneaky clothes.
It gets very heavy, very quickly mind. I imagine for one setup it would be a dream!
Got away witht the weight flying on air Norway, air canda, and easy jet.You've got to pull the 'take the weight' trick.
- Prentend your balancing the lengthy board bag on the conveyor and instead take some of the weight from the rear of the bag. Watch the read-out and know the limit. Works so so well. The stewards don't seem to be savvy to it.

|ju87||yet another vote for the Dakine... swallows my gear and all the clothes i need for a trip. if you pack it right, it will form a perfect rectangle shape when full. flown with it 3 times (once with 2 decks) with almost no wear and tear and no damage to any of my equipment.|

Re posted from a previous similar thread:
I recently bought the burton wheelie board case, very good construction quality, good gear protection, nice boot and clothing removal bags, plenty of room. In the 166 i can easily fit 2 boards and all the clothing ill need for a 2 week trip. I only take this one bag as my check in luggage on snow trips. Empty weight was about 3.5kg. Highly recommended. I managed to squeeze 2 sets of boards bindings and boots plus clothing totaling 30kg for the current trip to Japan for a whole season. So there is plenty of space.
The gig wheelie is a lot simpler without the additional nice features that the wheelie board case has.
The locker wheelie is just massive and heavy (~7kg empty weight), nice additional features but i dont think its worth the extra $ and weight.

|Zombaco||+1 on the Dakine Low Roller. This is the second season I've had mine. It's been used by myself and some friends all over the country and to Canada. It has held up superbly, still no significant wear and tear. Like Kapn says it will fit all your snow gear and clothes for about a week. A great single bag for flying option.|
