board bags?

I don't know much about board bags and sizing. If I have a 156 board, should I get a bigger board bag so I can stuff extra gear in it? Like a 165? Or should I get a board bag around the same size as my board?

Hello.

Get a bigger bag so you can cram your stuff like helmets, boots/other stuff.

I have a dakine bag that fits up to a 165. My board is a 154 and I usually also pack my friends board a 153. Plus I put 4 bindings, a lot of clothes and maybe even a boot or two. Get a big bag that way you fit all your shit in there.

It's really good, it's got great padding inside to protect your gear. I bought mine without knowing that it was the womens edition , I just like the color rather than the black one.



mine is the color "ocean plaid", thats the only picture I found about the color.

but yeah the bag rocks.....

Just as an FYI, the Ogio Agent is really sweet too.

Checked it out...Nice! A little steep in price but it looks like it's worth it.

You should get a board bag that fits the board as close as you can get it. I have a 155, the bag goes to 155.6. I have plenty of room for clothes and bindings too.

My problem with going bigger for the purpose of helmets and stuff is possible damage and the new weight factors for flying. See they throw this shit around and if the bag is oversized regardless of how well you conceive you packed it....their is a chance for shifting and ultimately scratches etc.

With airlines now putting weight restrictions and adding costs(per fuel surcharges) it makes more sence to get the bag that fits and an additional boot bag for the bindings and helmets that fit in there.

Now if your not flying ok...however to spend the money on a bag you want to consider the possibility of airline travel particularly in snowboarding.

U put a helmet, bindings and boards in one bag your asking for some sort of damage I think.
Interesting. That's a different way to look at it.
