If you're getting a soft shell, make sure it isn't too long. Ideally, the board's should stiffen the back through it's whole length.

I have a Burton wheelie of some sort, 181 cm cuz I thought it'd give me more storage than a 175 or less. It sure does... more than I need actually . Problem is that the bag is much longer than my boards. So the "top end" folds up when I pick up the handle up to wheel it, and the bag drags on the floor when wheeled . 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.

I thought I was the only "criminal" doing this. I usually place my bags so that they hang a bit and then I use my foot to pick up the bag slowly and make it magically weigh slightly below the allowed weight limit. Oh the hundreds of dollars I've saved by taking advantage of these dumb*****!!!! Suck on this Continental, American, Delta, Air Canada, Condor and Lufthansa!!!

howies 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.

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.

RaID 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.
