Default Board Bag recommendations

Ok guys/gals, I am needing some help with picking a board bag. I need something that is good for travel and durable enough for airport service people without them damaging anything. I looking for it to carry some of my gear and also need sizing recommendations. Wheels or no wheels but needs good padding.
My board size is 161cm wide
boots sz 12

Lmk any suggestions you have.

Thanks,
Chance

I got a Dakine bag for Christmas in 2003. Been using it ever since, and only last year did the zipper start to fail because I make a habit of cramming my boots and jacket/pants in there when I fly. It's due for a replacement, so I'm probably going to go with another Dakine only this time the Low Roller because it is designed to fit boots & stuff, too.

You can get one of them for maybe $75, available size 165cm should fit your board just fine. Last year I took two decks out to Park City, a 163 and 161 (both wide) and I fit both boards, one pair of boots, snow pants, gloves, and a jacket in the bag.

Dakine Tour. Fully padded, boot pockets, and durable. I've flown with it lots and taken it on every trip to the mountains. No wheels, but that means it's cheaper and that I'm not a pussy

High Roller and Low Roller have weels. between these two they use some beefier materials on the high roller as opposed to the low roller.

Tour does not have wheels.

If you're traveling a lot it might be worth the upgrade, but if you're only flying with your board once or twice each winter you'll be fine with the Tour.

FYI I bought a new Tour yesterday to replace an old Dakine bag I've had for about 7 winters.

I loaded it up last night it fits my board & bindings (old one didn't fit my bindings because the highbacks on the Cartels are enormous so I had to take them off to fit in the bag), and the boot pockets easily fit my size 11s.

I've got an initial review ready to post on my blog, probably tomorrow morning after I can take some pictures of the bag and getting it all packed up.

I have the Ogio caddy and love it. It expands giving you more room for gear when you want to toss in boots and outwear and is quite durable

Last time I used my board, I managed to pacjk everything inside it. it was heavy. Depending on how much you travel with it...get one with wheels. You'll have to check it anyway..might as well stuff it.
