Hey guys,

I am looking for a snowboard bag for a 156 board that has wheels and enough padding for airplane travel. Also if possible for it to have bags. Let me know if any lightbulbs light up.

Burton Wheelie! It's worth the extra coin for getting something with wheels. Makes a huge difference when you don't have all that weight on your shoulders.

@ helios good though but you have to read reviews and man they say this "If you're looking for 4 pockets and tons of padding and wheels, you're in the wrong place." Thanks anyways for trying.

I have been happy with the Burton Gig.
I have been ok without the wheels if I don't over fill it.

check out the Dakine high roller (or low roller, depending on how much gear you have). One thing to consider between both models is that the high roller weighs 15lbs empty and that cuts into the 50lb limit for sporting goods rather quickly. That said, I was able to fit 2 boards, 2 pairs of boots, and snow clothes/street clothes with 1 carry on for a week's worth of travel.

I think 165 is the smallest size for the high roller, so if youre bent on a 156ish look towards the low roller and save on weight.

I've found the low roller is more than sufficient for all my travel gear

I'll vouch for the Dakine Low Roller. I just flew with 2 (wife's 157 and my 165) to Utah. Both were packed our board, boots, and all board outerwear besides goggles and helmet. We got through the airports without issue.

Her bag weighed 30 lbs, mine was 35. 

One thing I'd highly recommend is sticking on some colored duct tape. My wife's bag is black. That's pretty common, so we really had to pay attention at baggage claim.

I would never get a travel bag that's black. A few years ago, someone had mistaken my bag for his, didn't bother to check the name tag and just walked off with it. Luckily, I saw the guy who picked up my bag and was able to chase him down after i realized i picked up his bag. Best to go with something with a bright pattern (even if it's ugly) so that it sticks out like a sore thumb.

Yeah, normally I wouldn't either. I got her low roller for $30. It was too good a deal to pass up.

I almost had a similar situation to you. I saw a guy grab an identical bag to my wife's and almost flipped out. I got close enough to see his name tag and realize it wasn't ours. Almost got into an interesting situation there. haha

So, if you must get a plain color, like we did, get some colored, reflective tape and go nuts. It'll stand out like a sore thumb.

I have the burton board locker, you can get them on sale for a decent price if you dont mind last years model.

its compactale since the board is what gives it rigidity, has wheels and a telescoping handle and is pretty well padded. It also has zippers that accept locks.

I can cram 1 board setup, another board and a loose set of bindings, all my clothes, boots, tools and a tuning kit in mine and it weighs in right at 45 pounds.

If you plan to travel youre better off dropping the money to get something good and that can handle a good amount of gear.

Ive been looking into getting a travel bag but what's the difference between the Burton locker and wheelie bag? they look pretty much the same except price. I can't see the locker holding much more than what the wheelie holds.

I third the Burton wheelie.
I originally both the wheelie for my wife so I did not have to carry her bag. She was doing it with such ease that I upgraded my bag to a wheelie as well.
The is a ton of padding AND room for the rest of your gear.
I stuff 2 boards, 1 pair of boots, 1 set of bindings,2 ninja suits, impact shorts, gloves, helmet, goggles and spare lens, and a down mid layer. I could stuff something else in but the weight is at 49 pounds with all that.
I don't trust airports so i edge the nose and tail of board with insulating pipe foam ($2 at home depot)

This thread is over a year old. I'm sure he's figured out what bag to get.... He's had 16 months to do so.... Clap
