Best Board Bag?

I'm looking into buying a travel back for long flights and wanted to get info or recommendations to buy one. I'm currently hell bent on buying the Flow Board Shuttle (since I already own the rest of their gear). My boards range from 159-162cm.

You might want to search the forum.
I know this has been discussed to death previously.

Search function has its limitations. "Bag" is too short and "Board bag" would bring thousands of posts with "board" in it. Once struggled while searching "cat" threads

Here are two threads on the topic I know of:

My first reaction to the search was "momma mia that's a lot of pages".

I looked at dakine, but they wouldn't match up with my other gear (not that I'm an uptight-metro-sexual-fashion-geek) but the quality and rave reviews make it so appealing.

Dakine or Burton with wheels, all you need to know. Padded coffin bags are best, but add protection, weight and price. Matching your other Flow gear up with your board bag is one of the dumbest things I've heard this morning. Unless your sponsored you should consider buying the best gear that fits your needs at a price you're comfortable with. All matching gear is meh

There is also the sport tube, but that's a different beast.

Yeah it's dumb, but I'm more to the red, black, and white colorways. I also checked out the sports tube but I'm not going to war with my gear. I just need something to protect my gear from this...

Color is pretty much the last thing you should care about. Number 1 is fit, 2 is protection 3, ergonomics, 4 weight, 5 durability (in no particular order actually). I mean, you're just going to stuff it in the corner most of the time. Are you trying to look good going through the airport? Cause no one gives a shit.

unrelated side note: whichever jack ass came up with the word 'colorways' is a complete douchebag.

Bite the bullet and get a sport tube, it is the best buy out there FULL STOP...!!!

I bought a wheelie gig back and it lasted 2 trips before it was ripped and thus not capable of doing what it was supposed to do, so i invested in a sport tube and the versatility is just so worth the extra money, in my mind anyway, that and it doesn't matter how many bags are thrown on top of it, being a hard case, it just does not matter...!!!

That and it is always easy to find your... Haha...

I completely agree here. Ergonomics is a big factor if you have to carry the bag very far. I took mine from Indiana to NYC and then to Vermont. I have the K2 padded bag. It sucked balls carrying that thing. By the time I got to the rental car place from airport to train to subway to the walk to the apartment and back to subway my fucking arm was about to fall off. The sling makes it really awkward to carry as well. I now hate that K2 bag. I wouldn't recommend it.
