Default Looking for a bag.

I'm looking for a bag for my board. I didn't notice any reviews or anything on here. I will be taking it on a plane as well.

Anyone know of any good ones out there. Something that won't fall apart and has some padding for the board. I figure it will get thrown around by bag handlers at the airport.

Thanks
Steve

Get something with wheels if you are going to be using it for the airport. Look for padding. It helps if the bag has a hard plastic shell in strategic places too. Burton, Dakine, Ogio, and many others make quality board bags.

i have a ogio caddy bag and its pretty durable. it has wheels and has zippers so it can be extended to a longer length to fit more things in it. ive brought it on many flights and wheeled it around everywhere with it still holding up well.

If youre going on planes and lugging your bag around ariports and from busses to your accomodation i highly recommend a wheelie bag.
If the bag is going on a plane you want the actual bag to be as light as possible.

Ive recently bought the Burton Wheelie Board Case, I would highly recommend it. Plenty of room, light, sturdy construction that looks very durable. It has nice features like seperate board storage for second board or board without bidnings one, seperate gear bags. All nice feature when you have to live out of the bag. In the 166 I can fit all my clothes and riding gear for a 2 week trip with room to spare.

If youre on more of a budget try the Gig Bag which is same construction and size except it is only one large compartment. Ive compared these bags to others on the market eg Dakine, and the Burton seemed much better laid out and designed.

Well..

I ordered the Dakine low roller.

I did little searching. Found some reviews, The high roller is just to big for what I need. I also needed a bag to fit a 169, I'm a big dude. From what I've read the low roller is sweet. I also have a limited budget, now I have to save for the trip as well.

I will throw up a review of it as soon as I get it with some pictures and shit as well.

I have been using a Dakine Low Roller going on 5 years this season, with about 6-10 trips per season through airports. Its a very durable bag and holds ALL my gear with if I just take one board, but I have found that I needed to wrap my edges with either cardboard or pipe insulation to keep them from cutting the bag. I also reinforced the edge contact points in the bag with layers of duct tape which helps a lot.

I have an older version that is digital woodland camo so everyone in the airport presumes I am carrying some type of weapon Its amazing how many people ask whats in the bag.

I had the same thing happen when I was carrying my electric bass case around the airport (it's a rectangular black case, about 5' long) Had three different security personnel ask me what it was.

Dakine tour. It's a big bag, fully padded, and compartments for your boots. It's has no wheels, but i think they're retarded anyways

Wheels. The more you travel, the more you'll realize that wheels shouldn't be optional on any bag. Always get wheels.

Apart from that just remember that the bigger the bag, the more it'll weigh, so only go with a bigger bag if you need to carry more than one kit of gear in the bag.

Sorry to hijack the thread, but I didn't get much help in my thread.

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.
