Snowboarding Bag/Backpack

I'm a beginner snowboarder that transitioned from skis. I'm looking for something to take on public transit that can hold my boots and board at the minimum, preferably with extra room for a change of clothes and an hydration pack. I'm shying away from the full sized travel bags because I'd prefer to have a bag I can wear while boarding to carry my stuff.

I've been looking at the Ride Messiah, does anyone have one and what are their opinions on it? Are there any recommendations for a bag something like the Messiah?

I have a Burton Day Hiker that carries all my stuff pretty well. It also has strap to put your board in when not in use. Depending on what size you get you can also fit more things. Currently i have the 20L bag and i fit my jacket and some small stuff in there. Now for big stuff i just went ahead and got the Burton Gig bag. That thing fits everything and its padded which is great.

Thanks for your recommendation. I'm concerned by the reviews about flimsy material for the Day Hiker however.

I use a Dakine helipro to carry all my gear on the hill. Works great so far. The only complaint I have it that the straps are really long for some reason. But, that's not so much a problem as an aesthetic niggle I have with the bag.

Dakine has a lifetime warranty on anything. If you break a strap riding or whatever they either replace the part or the bag the whole time you own it.

I REALLY want the Salomon Quest 23 bag but I can't find it any where! Even the site that has it, you can't order it! :(

Speaking of Dakine bags, does anyone happen to know places in Vancouver that stock the Heli Pro II?

I also am looking for a good padded bag that can hold my snowboard, boots, helmet, and a jacket. I used an old ass burton bag but now my friend wants it back. How much does a bag that do all that cost usually?

Dakine Heli pro DLX.

After a couple days of legwork, I still haven't found any retailers that have the pro 2. Thus, I've caved in and just ordered it online from ebags (linked from the Dakine website)

On a further note, does anyone have a recommendation for a specific model of hhydration reservoir?
