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).

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?

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.
