I need a good bag to carry my board cross-country on flights (maybe even overseas). At this point I only need it to carry the board+bindings, as I can put everything else in carry-on/other checked luggage. Here's the catch: it needs to fit a 181 board.

Again, sorry to hijack the thread, but I didn't get any help in mine.
Dam that's a big board. You could try a Burton Wheelie Gig Bag. They make bags slightly longer than Dakine, I believe they top out at 181, so your board should just fit inside. They're designed to carry one set of snowboard gear and they have wheels.

Alright, Would the Space Sack work for me? As I'm operating on a limited budget (Already dropping about $1200 on the 4 b's (board, boots, binding, brain bucket). Not having wheels isn't a huge problem to me, as I work on a farm daily, so carrying the board bag isn't a problem.

Honestly, I wouldn't go with a space sack. That thing doesn't offer much padding, it's more of a sleeve than a padded bag. I wouldn't trust the bagging handlers with my snowboard gear in the space sack.

Alright, I guess I'll find a way to shell out the extra cash for at least the gig bag, if not the wheelie.

If your doing any airport travel there is no doubt that you should get a bag with wheels. The Dakine wheels are large, not small urethane skate board look alike wheels, and pretty much roll over every type of surface pretty easily, including slushy parking lots at hotels etc....

I would consider myself pretty much an expert traveler, flying about 100K miles domestically a year for my job, and I do most of my riding while on trips for work. (Honestly its the one perk that is keeping me at this job, I focus on CO, UT, AK, and PNW during the winter naturally) I would never consider buying a board bag w/o wheels if you are going to do air travel with it. The Dakine bags are very well padded too, I only had to reinforce mine b/c I use it so damn much. My board pretty much lives in the bag during the winter.

I would get a Dakine bag, but they only make up to a 175.

I think i ended up getting a 175 as my board is a 169. As soon as I get it I will do a write up for it, maybe even a video..
