Direct Link To This Post Topic: Board bag size?
    Posted: Sep/11/2007 at 7:10pm
Ok, so I've decided I need to get a board bag for some air travel I'll be doing this year.  Trying to decide on a size though.  I'm looking mainly at the Burton Wheelie Gig Bag, and was wondering if I need the 166 or the 181.  I know everyone who has it says they fit a ton of stuff in it, but they never say which size bag and what size board they've got in it.  I want to be able to fit my board (160), bindings, boots, and outerwear.  Will the 166 work or do I need the 181?

That's what I figured, but I wasn't sure.  Thanks.

ditto.

it is nearly impossible to keep that thing under 50 lbs, too. every time i'm on Jet Blue i worry they're going to stick me with a $20+ charge.

this place is bleak.

Really, Nod? I've packed most of my gear in my Lib Tech bag and never had an issue. Then again, I'm a one board kinda guy. I know you have to have like 3 with you...
I have a great sense of humour. I'm also entitled.

evernod: when we went to tahoe on Northwest Airlines, i had two boards, all my gear, wax/tune-up gear, and outerwear in there that was definitely over 50 lbs. they never charged us extra. their policy states though that any snowboarding bag over 50 lbs. will have an excess charge. i guess it depends on the agent and what mood their in, because i've seen with normal bags too where agents say it's okay if u're just a couple pounds over while other agents will ask you to redistribute your luggage.

Here's the NWA policy:

Skiing and Snowboarding Equipment
Northwest accepts one item of skiing/snowboarding equipment in lieu of one piece of luggage included in the free luggage allowance. Skiing/snowboarding equipment is accepted as checked luggage only. An item of ski equipment is defined as one of the following:

  • One (1) ski bag containing up to two (2) pairs of skis and one (1) boot bag
  • One (1) snowboard
  • One (1) snowboard bag containing up to two (2) snowboards

Additional ski and boot bags will be subject to normal excess charges. Northwest recommends hard-shell cases when checking your ski equipment.

International Travel:

  • Additional ski and boot bags or equipment that does not fit within the free luggage allowance guidelines will be subject to a rate of $50.00 per bag.

Domestic Travel:

  • If combined weight of ski bag and boot bag exceed 50 pounds (23 kg) an overweight fee of $50.00 applies.
  • If equipment is an additional piece of luggage not include in free allowance, a fee of $80.00 applies.

Northwest does not accept liability for loss, damage, or delay of skiing/snowboarding equipment. Excess valuation insurance may not be purchased for transport of skiing/snowboarding equipment.

the 181 is overkill and i'm surprised they even make them anymore

you will hit the weight limit before you run out of space ina 166 bag, go up to the wheelie board CASE if you think you need more space, the wheelie locker is overkill as well
