Default Snowboard bag

Hi,

I just bought a second hand ride machette 157 wide and need a bag for my trip to New Zealand. Can anyone recommend a good bag for all my stuff? Is it better to buy online or visit a store?

Buy a sportube if you can, hard cases are far better at protecting your gear even when at the bottom of a pile...!

I have used Burton bags for about 15 years and have not had a problem. I ride 155-161 boards and have used both the 166 and the 181 wheelie bags which hold two boards. I only travel with one board but love the extra room to pack everything I need including clothes for on/off mountain. I keep my bindings on and place boots, helmet and other stuff on my board to fill the bag and provide protection. I have checked it with no problem and have also sent ahead and so I only have to deal with carry on and kids at the airport!

On a budget so the burton bag sounds good. I guess the wheelie bags are worth the extra $?

Also do you think the fact that I have the Wide board will make it difficult to fit in the standard bag?

I would strongly recommend getting a bag with wheels. This is my opinion but traveling with kids, other bags and carrying other stuff, it is always easier to wheel.

Just purchased a Burton Wheelie Gig for traveling from Wisco to Cali. Went with a 166cm bag to fit my 158w board and all of my gear. Everything made it to Cali and back with no issues and was able to comfortably fit my board, bindings, boots, helmet, pants, jacket, and goggles inside.

I've got the Lib Tech Banana Boat bag and it's damn good. Had a Burton bag before and the edge of the board wore through the bag so it's held together with gaffa tape these days. I can't really fault the Lib bag although it's a little pricey at around $220.
