Snowboard Bags

Hey all,
Might be doing a trip out to the mountains this spring break and will probably be flying. I would imagine it would be good to get a legit snowboard bag for my snowboard(s) in that case.
Anyways, I'm not very familiar with most of the bags/specs since I usually drive, but this is what I'm looking for...

Fit two snowboards (162cm, (164cm)). Would be nice if I can fit the bindings on them too, but that might be asking too much.
Would be nice to fit some other equipment as well. I might take the boots separately in case something horrid happens then the trip wouldn't be ruined (tho, it'd blow in that case). In other words, extra compartments would be nice.

I know a lot of people say go a size up, but the highest size I've seen are usually 165cm... and that's not giving me much to work with, haha

Any suggestions?

Here you go. You'll have to take the bindings off one of the boards, but it'll fit all your gear and is fully padded with wheels too.

I've got an early 2000 burton bag 181. Crazy long with wheels. Has holders for two pairs of boots. I got it for less than 30 bucks back then so I couldn't say no. I hope Jetblue doesn't charge me extra for it when I travel later this month.

I have a burton wheelie bag 181. I can fit two boards with bindings and have room for some of my equipment. Now way all of it will fit in there but it is nice to have a second board along.

Don't go where the road leads, rather go where this is no road and make a trail.

i use the dakine high roller with wheels or the same style bag without wheels(it is lighter)
check the allowance on the airlines before you buy one
my average weight is 13-23kg's depending on the airline
last time out was 30kg's
i think my wheelie bag is about 6kg by itself

Yeah, the linked bag sounds pretty great except I noticed that it was about 12 lbs by itself. I'll probably just weigh the boards sometime soon and do some estimations. If it works out though, that board bag would be pretty nice to have...

Thanks for all the advice everyone!

165 Dakine Low Roller would do the trick. Used this bag travelling around NZ and Europe and its great.
