yet another vote for the Dakine... swallows my gear and all the clothes i need for a trip. if you pack it right, it will form a perfect rectangle shape when full. flown with it 3 times (once with 2 decks) with almost no wear and tear and no damage to any of my equipment.

Another plus one on the Dakine low roller
Been on Four trips with it, all transporting not only my setup, but my birds.
2 boards 4 boots 4 bindings and a few sneaky clothes.
It gets very heavy, very quickly mind. I imagine for one setup it would be a dream!

Got away witht the weight flying on air Norway, air canda, and easy jet.You've got to pull the 'take the weight' trick.

- Prentend your balancing the lengthy board bag on the conveyor and instead take some of the weight from the rear of the bag. Watch the read-out and know the limit. Works so so well. The stewards don't seem to be savvy to it.

I thought I was the only "criminal" doing this. I usually place my bags so that they hang a bit and then I use my foot to pick up the bag slowly and make it magically weigh slightly below the allowed weight limit. Oh the hundreds of dollars I've saved by taking advantage of these dumb*****!!!! Suck on this Continental, American, Delta, Air Canada, Condor and Lufthansa!!!

If you're getting a soft shell, make sure it isn't too long. Ideally, the board's should stiffen the back through it's whole length.

I have a Burton wheelie of some sort, 181 cm cuz I thought it'd give me more storage than a 175 or less. It sure does... more than I need actually . Problem is that the bag is much longer than my boards. So the "top end" folds up when I pick up the handle up to wheel it, and the bag drags on the floor when wheeled . So I have to "sling" the handle over my shoulder and drag the bag behind me in order to engage the wheels properly. This is a pain, especially if you're wheeling a computer case or a pullman in the other hand.

Due to the rising cost of ammo, do not expect a warning shot! Sorry for the inconvenience.
