|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.|

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.

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.

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.

I went through a couple of different bags before buying a Sportube. This thing is nearly indestructible but it may be more than you want to spend:

|NoOtherOptions||See I havn't had any issues transporting gear by flight. I just have a dakine bag. That said, when I pack I usually put clothes underneath and top of the board to cushion the hell out of it. Boots, etc in that bad boy. As much shit around the board as possible. Some day I'll buy a hard wheelie bag but for now I have a soft padded bag similar to that OP and it works fine.|
