I have a Burton Wheelie Locker and Wheelie Board Case. Even though they are almost the same price I would go with the board case one rate locker. The locker is heavier before you put anything in it and is so big that in order to fill it enough so it doesn't smash flat you get up to 50lbs easy. If you are traveling by air that is a big issue. You can still pack PLENTY of stuff in the board case for a week trip it just doesn't have the extra storage compartments like the locker.

I have the wheelie locker too and agree with rfrich74. It fits a lot, but you hit the weight limit before you fill it up.

Dakine Low Roller. Had mine for 3 years. $95. If mine ever gets destroyed, I will order another. I can carry my board, boots, gear, and almost a weeks worth of clothes in the thing. Not sure what the warranty is(not that I'd ever need it) but their backpacks carry a lifetime one.

+1 on the Dakine Low Roller. This is the second season I've had mine. It's been used by myself and some friends all over the country and to Canada. It has held up superbly, still no significant wear and tear. Like Kapn says it will fit all your snow gear and clothes for about a week. A great single bag for flying option.

Re posted from a previous similar thread:

I recently bought the burton wheelie board case, very good construction quality, good gear protection, nice boot and clothing removal bags, plenty of room. In the 166 i can easily fit 2 boards and all the clothing ill need for a 2 week trip. I only take this one bag as my check in luggage on snow trips. Empty weight was about 3.5kg. Highly recommended. I managed to squeeze 2 sets of boards bindings and boots plus clothing totaling 30kg for the current trip to Japan for a whole season. So there is plenty of space.

The gig wheelie is a lot simpler without the additional nice features that the wheelie board case has.
The locker wheelie is just massive and heavy (~7kg empty weight), nice additional features but i dont think its worth the extra $ and weight.
