Default Can a Dakine low roller be folded or rolled up?

Hey guys,

Can a Dakine low roller be folded or compacted? Like a rolled up towel, at last for most of the body, excluding the base with wheels.

I'm shipping a Dakine low roller to me in Singapore. Actual weight 5kg, chargeable volumetric weight 21kg! That's a charge of US$140 to ship by comgateway!

So far I have seen pictures that show the bag bended 90 degrees no problem. I am wondering if anyone tried to roll it up.

Nope no rolling up. It can sort of be folded in half, but the bag does not seem to 'like it' and there is some resistance (probably bending some of the plastic structure).

I also live in Singapore but buy most of my gear in Hong Kong (except for hard goods which are really expensive).
There are a couple of shops in Hong Kong that carry Dakine bags at reasonable prices. Still more expensive than the US, but I think it will be cheaper than shipping internationally.

What size bag are you looking for? I have a couple of extra boardbags.

Hiya SGboarder. Great to hear from another that lives in Singapore.

I didn't know Hong Kong have shops that sells snowboarding gear. I'll get my stuff from there next time.

My boardbag size is 165cm. But unfortunately for me, I have already bought my bag from Amazon and shipped via comgateway.

Back to the Hong Kong shops, do they have any websites or locations I can go to next time I'm in Hong Kong?

Hm, I have a spare 163 Dakine Tour and a 170 K2 bag that I might let go, but both do not have wheels (much better, I think). Actually, I will go to US in a few weeks so maybe can do an exchange. PM me if you are interested.

For buying stuff in Hong Kong, I normally go to Island Wake or X-Game in Causeway Bay. Not sure about websites.

Can't roll it, but it folds in half just fine. I have stored mine like that in the past and it's fine. The plastic is only towards the botton, not along the entire length.
