Padded backpack straps make carrying the Burton Board Sack that much easier.
When you don't need an ultra-padded, fortified-like-a-medieval-castle snowboard bag, but you still want to protect your stick during travel, grab The Burton Board Sack. When your arms get tired of carrying the Board Sack, bust out the hideaway backpack straps and throw the bag on your back. This bag holds two snowboards, or one board and bindings, hats, gloves, and other winter layers. A zippered accessory pocket keeps your board wax and tools from roaming around in the main compartment. *Available for US shipment only.

Will hold it all for a minimal bag.
This will hold a board, boots, helmet and some outerwear. I wrapped my tip and tail in bubble wrap, because the material is a bit thin on this bag. But it held up flying to Mt Hood. Make sure your edge is protected in the bag and you are all good.
A good all around bag, the material is a little weak traveling on an airplane I received several cuts from within the inside bag material from my edges of my board, although it is easy to carry and is stores alot of gear I even packed a pair of skis and boots in it.
It's a board bag alright.
Yep, its a board bag. It does it's job well. No padding, just a durable sack to keep your board scratch free.
I wouldn't recommend this bag to anyone who is thinking of using it with air travel. Considering it's a Burton product, I thought it would've held up much better but I was disappointed in the material and how easily it ripped (in several spots).
I like the sack--durable, looks great. Wish it had a compartment for the boots.
stylin' but less functional
Loved the colors and the 'nappysack' features, but the bag tore slightly on my first trip....probably due to the new snowboard edges, but still...I guess all the padded bags ARe what they're hyped up to be.
Great medium duty bag. I have Burton 151 and 140 boards with Burton bindings. Both boards fit back to back in this sack...would recommend buying!
Does the Job
I just got this bag about a month ago, and it has served me pretty well. I took it to Bamff then to Houston, then to Utah and back to LA. It is a good bag, but the edge of my board kinda cut through the end of the bag... It's not padded so throw an old t-shirt on both ends of your board so the baggage handlers don't mess it up. I could fit everything in there too... Jacket, pants, helmet, boots.... the works. I got the roasted brown, and it looks pretty cool.
Air Travelers Beware
This is my 2nd Burton Space Sack.
My first one is was the distressed plaid from last year, with no back pack straps. Fits everything well, however saw some tears in it after two trips from Baltimore to Denver and back.
This 2nd one, took one trip from Baltimore to Denver, and it tore about a 6 inch hole! Not recommended for air travelers, I need to contact Burton to see if they can help me out.
These aren't cheap.
My 166 Arbor Crossbow slipped in real nice with bindings still on. Has a pretty small accessory pocket for nothing more than socks and tools. Hook and loop closure business card id pocket. You can sling it over your shoulder or wear it like a backpack. We'll see how it handles air travel this winter...
The straps seem to hold without tearing or twisting. It fits my stuff without being too big. Good price for sure!
