I dont know if i should get the low roller or wheelie gig. I want to fit the following:
2 boards
2 bindings
Boots
Helmet
Goggles
And is it true that the boot pockets on the low roller wont fit higher than size 10?

these are effectively equivalents from each brand.  they are both going to hold the listed gear just fine.  I traveled with a 166 burton wheelie gig and it fit 3 boards, 2 bindings, my boots, and one set of outerwear, and was just shy of 50 pounds, and wasn't overpacked at all.

personally I'm a bigger fan of dakine, but like both.

For $69.99 this is a good wheeled bag.  Well padded, good sized.  Easily holds 2 boards, 2 bindings, boots, etc.

I would not be too worried about the volume but about teh weight. at 2 boards, 2 bindings, 2 boots + helmets and other accessories you will be very close to the 50 pound limit most airline have.

I have the wheelie gig bag and carry 2 snowboards, 1 pair of bindings, 1 pair of boots, jacket, pants, 3 first layers, helmet, gloves, goggles and impact shorts. This gear plus the bag weight puts me at 47 pounds.

Eitherway, it is better to pick something with wheels so it would be easier to lug around during your travels.
