    Posted: Sep/26/2011 at 7:46am
I am interested in the Dakine Tour bag.  Will the 157cm bag work for a 155 board, bindings, boots, jacket, pants, and goggles?  That's all I need to pack in it and don't plan on having a second board.  I plan on using it for domestic air travel.

Probably not. I had a 157 cm Dakine Low Rider with a 149 board. I was barely able to fit all of that stuff in. It was a pretty tight fit once I got everything in there and my board is 6 cm shorter than yours

Get a big bag. It doesn't matter that your board is smaller. The more you can fit on your board bag the less you have to carry on your other bags. just stuff it with your outwear gear helmet etc...

I'd love to travel with my board bag and a backpack but I have a wife. :/
The least you are carrying the better! plus you might get fat(and need a larger board) or decide you want a second board or get some huge powder board and then you'll have to buy another board bag.

Def get a big bag. U may want to pack more stuff.  Or U may take a trip in the future where U need more room.  Big is def better in this case.

Yeah, you'll need bigger especially since you'll need your jacket, pants, etc. to pad your board.  They are not careful when handling bags at airports, as I'm sure you're well aware.

^ Plus with a bigger bag you can pack all of your soft goods around your board to give it a little more protection.  My board is protected by 2 pairs of snowboard pants and 2 jackets as well as 1 large towel.  IMO you can never have too much protection for your board considering how baggage handlers throw bags around.

Yea, get a bigger bag if its available....
I got a 161 for my 158 board and I'm regretting that I didnt get a bigger bag.
It still fits my board, bindings, and boots, but kinda gotta squeeze it in.

I've got a 156 burton wheelie locker and I'm currently fitting a 157 in it, I've also fitted a 158 stunt with no problems, just the weight goes a little crazy on it when everything else is in there.

i've got a 157 board in a 157 dakine bag = you should be good.
here's what i pack without any problems: board with bindings, boots, jacket, pants.
might be a good idea to get a bigger bag if you buy a second bigger board but for your current board it shouldn't be a problem.

I've got a Dakine Tour Bag 165 cm, used it for a 152 board and enough other gear that it went over the 50 # wt limit. It's for sale. PM me if interested. Used very little.

like many others side, no probably not.

if possible go 2 sizes longer than your board size, ESPECIALLY if you're going to carry bindings/boots in the same bag.

well if you plan to travel overseas you might want to look out for the max length of luggage, as some airlines prob wont' allow too long.
 
i have a 160 dakine low roller and i can fit 157 board and everything else u mentioned. actually it fit all my luggage going overseas for 1 week.

Most say big bag because you can carry all the stuff you need (or may need) when you head to the mountain. I used my buddies 181 for my 158 packed my boots helmet goggles board/wbindings pants and jacket with no problem no cramming. If your flying thats awesome because its more stuff to surround your board and protect it.

Go big or go home ( or stay home dont fly lol)

i have the 157 dakine tour and capita indoor 156 

no problems what so ever getting medium bindings, sz 9.5 boots... 1 jacket & 2 pants
i even fit a helmet in there too with goggles (in a goggle case) and my thermals/beanies

for local domestic travel it is fine
I've been interstate also went to NZ with the tour
weight was getting close to 20kg

there is no need to get the next size up (which is 165 i believe) unless you plan on cramming more clothes in but then weight limit restricts what you can bring anyway

I have a 157 bag and my friend fit his ~160 board in it. I'm with some of the others. Just get 1 size bigger and you'll be aight.

I hate dragging the bard bag in some places. So getting a longer one than necessary can become a pain.

Also, depending what car you have may make having a longer bag a real pain. My 157 fits in the backseat of my sedan if no one is sitting back there or doesn't mind a board bag in their face or lap on the trip to airport.

Thanks SoCalRyder.  I ended up picking up a slightly used 165 Dakine Tour from another member.  I can pack a little more clothes to fill up extra space.
