Default Ogio Caddy review

I purchased this bag for a trip to CO that I just got back from (which was sick, btw). I was looking for a bag I could put 2 boards in, preferably with bindings attached. I believe I read that a few on here had done just that with this bag, by staggering the boards with bindings facing each other. I found that impossible. That was gripe #1, but no big deal, as I just removed the bindings from 1 board. Gripe # 2 was that the bottom of the bag was decently padded, except for the zipper to nowhere in the lining. I had to cover this with a towel so as not to gauge my base. Again, no big deal I guess. Gripe # 3 was that there are no interior pockets, so anything else I wanted to carry (i.e. the bindings I had to take off of board #1) also had to be wrapped in a towel so as not to be sliding all over the place. Gripe # 4 was that the wheels are placed too far up on the end, as opposed to being more on the bottom side. As a result the plastic guard on the end constantly scrapes the pavement unless you lift the handle way up by your side, which was quite awkward. I actually found it less tiring to carry the bag than to wheel it. In the end my stuff all arrived completely protected, including 2 boards, 2 sets of bindings, 2 sets of boots, and 4 bath towels to wrap everything in, ergonomics be damned.

Just wanted to offer a dissenting opinion I guess. I mean, it got my stuff to and fro safely, and that's the big thing. It's just that I'd read a lot of good reviews, and thus had high expectations. I don't know if there's something better out there, but it just seemed to me that there would have been some easy and obvious ways to make the bag better.

Default Same problems...

I have this bag too and have experienced some of the same problems. I am shorter and so the little plastic thing always scrapes the ground when I am pulling it. I can fit a bunch of stuff in there 2 boards, 2 pairs of boots, jackets, pants, etc...<br> but what really pissed me off is that the first time I used it, I picked it up from baggage claim and one of the clips broke! Everything inside was still protected...but it was the first time to use it! <br> I expected a little more durability from Ogio. I guess it could have been the airline too?! Either way...bummed me out.
