unrelated side note: whichever jack ass came up with the word 'colorways' is a complete douchebag.
No, I just have favorite colors, if people in the airport think it's dumb screw them. I had a old K2 bag with zero padding and was damn near impossible to carry, maneuverability is a big factor for me.

This makes moving a bag very very easy...!!!

I swear by it, and with no flex in the bag, and the wheels being good, you really should consider it, if colour is the only thing putting you off then they do a silver edition as well which comes with handle, lock etc...

Okay I'm game for this, an extra $50 isn't the end. It's durable, but it does seem a bit clunky, then again it is a hard case.

The grey colour is a nice alternative, if they ever stock it again. It's been unavailable for pretty much all of 2013.
Last trips I've been on, I saw several black ones in the mix at luggage claim, so a different colour or lots of stickers will ease identification.

Agree that Dakine and Burton are the way to go for soft sided bags though. Doesn't mean the Flow bag is no good, but try and compare to the Dakine/burton models before buying.

AFter ruining a bag i paid 90 for and it was good quality... Burton... I was loathed to buy another, so i opted for the sportube without thinking twice, i have flown with that maybe 20 times now, and reckon i would easily of killed at least 1 maybe 2 normal bags, so it has saved me money for sure, and the walking with it is no problem whatsoever...

It is also really handy for storing your stuff over the summer, or if going on a trip for a week with the car, it straps easily on a roofrack as well... So the uses are endless...

I would not use anything else now, and wish i could of got hold of the silver, but all that we get in the UK is black anyway, so as someone else said, stickers is easy...!!!

As already stated, stickers solve this, but so does a really bright coloured ribben not long in length but just tied around the handle in a knot makes this very simple...
