The low roller will be all you have to carry, though.. you'll be able to pack EVERYTHING in it.

I use a low roller.. keep 2 boards/bindings 2 pairs of boots, 4 pairs of goggles, 2 pairs of pants, some base layers, gloves, socks, tools, etc. There's a lot of room in there.

Dude,..! If they ever lose your bag you'll be sliding down the mountain barefooted & in your skivvies!!

I just ordered the 165cm highroller. I'm finding out from sum other folks, it's a WAY bigger bag than I proly need!

I've got the tour and it gets the job done. If you get it in a big enough size there's plenty of room for all your gear and outerwear. It's decently padded although I've always wrapped the nose/tail of my board to be safe. Wheels would be nice but not worth the extra money to me personally.

If you ever do a second trip and want to bring a second board? You'll be very glad to have rollers. Your shoulders will thank you. With 2 boards n other gear, my low roller usually weights ~17kg. I embrace those rollers while SO is hulking his tour bag around, usually swearing.
GreyDragon, Mizu Kuma and Phedder like this.


I really thought quicksand was going to be a much bigger issue in my life when I was little

A bag is not for one trip, it's for life.

I use mine for both mine and my wife's gear - and some of my kids (hence the 4 pairs of goggles, etc). We end up around 45lbs/20-21kg.

Totally worth it to have the wheels and the extra size. I think if I packed out a high roller it would be too heavy.

156 low roller fits 164 boards.
If you want to pack your espresso machine, iron board and excess other gear? Go bigger.

Yeah I fit my 161 ultra dream in a 156 low roller , it is tight but works well. I personally pack everything in the bag and top out near 50 lbs the max for Delta.
