The boot locker is big, 29.5 boots no problem, helmet, gloves, jacket, goggles everything you need in one bag. Nice to have everything in one spot just grab it and go to the slopes.
Great ski bag
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is perfect for all your ski gear. The top is big enough for all your clothes and helmet and the bottom fits your boots perfect. It is also lined with water proof material so if you have snow on your boots it doesn't leak through the bag

Has anyone used this as a carry-on on a flight?
Perfect boot/gear bag!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This bag is huge! Two layers of storage greatness,the top for all of your soft goodies (I.e jacket ,pants,gloves,ect..) and the bottom for your boots and whatever else you can shove in there. Plus, the whole thing is tarp lined so you don't have to worry about water getting in or out. It may be a soft bag but it's durable and if you manage to rip it dakine has a lifetime warranty.

Besides the main compartments, are there any small pockets or sleeves to organize smaller things?
There are the two main compartments and one zippered accessory pocket.
Thanks Arthur. Where's the accessory pocket and how large is it?
Haul your junk...
Just the right size, keeps your wet boots away from your other gear, so far no signs of wear.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Holds my fairly bulky boots in the bottom and all of my jackets, pants, gloves, etc in the top perfectly.
Great size and fits more than you think
Got this for my husband last winter and he loves it. When we first got it we were concerned that it wouldn't fit all of his stuff (he is a patroller so he has lots of stuff). Then he started to pile things in and it was just an endless pit! His boots fit in the bottom section - tightly but fit - which is nice for after skiing, they don't the rest of the stuff wet. Helmet, first aid kit, gloves, radio, beacon, etc all fit in the top comfortably. And after a season of use, it's still looking new!
I'm not a huge skier, maybe go two or three times a year, so I have a basic complement of equipment: helmet, boots, pants, gloves, goggles, socks, parka, hat, etc. My point is, I only have one of all these (well, several pairs of socks), so I just keep everything in the boot locker, which has ample room for it all (except the parka). When I'm ready to head for the hills, I just grab the bag and go, no hunting around for, and packing, all my stuff. It's perfect for that sort of use. Got a matching one for my wife.
Great, but not a carry-on luggage bag
Well made, reliable, enough space for gear. Compact, but not a carry-on luggage if you'll put a helmet in.
Duffle bag top
Has anyone used this bag for a week or so...
Has anyone used this bag for a week or so vacation that wasn't for snowboarding specifically?
No, but it seems like it would work just fine especially being able to fit boots and a helmet so easily.

I'm trying to find a bag that fits two pairs of boots, any recommendations?
This bag will definitely fit two pairs of boots but depending on the size of your boots it won't leave you much room for anything else, maybe small items like base layers, gloves. I had fit a size 8 and size 5 snowboard boot with my helmet in the bag but didn't have much room for anything except a sweater or smaller items. If you're looking for a duffle type bag to fit both boots and other stuff, you might want to try this:
This bag holds two pairs, it just gets really heavy. We still have room to stuff quite a lot of stuff. We put socks in the boots, the fill bag cavities with vests, hats etc.
Bag gets the job done
Average ski day this puppy is filled with ski boots (27.5 fit no problem at all), helmet (smith vantage L), goggles (Zeal eclipse spx) in the accessory Dakine case, gloves (BD patrol), shell (arcteryx scorpion XL), synthetic downy (arcteryx atom sv L), light under layers, a water bottle and lunch...and the kitchen sink! This bag fits everything nicely. I always have room to spare. The material is durable and the straps make it easy to travel with. If I had to point out one thing which detracts from how nice this bag is, it would have to be the lack of a smaller pocket for keys and wallet. I bought the Dakine goggle case with it and it doubles for key/wallet storage while skiing. I would and have recommended to friends.

Will this bag fit size 12 boot plus a knee brace along with helmet etc?
While 4200 cu. in. isn't the best description of bag size I can tell you that this product has interior dimensions of 20 x 15 x 14 inches. In addition to this the lower portion of the bag is designed specifically to hold snow sport boots. I would recommend measuring your gear, and using the dimensions you gather, to see how they will best fit inside of the bag.
without a doubt i would say yes. i have size 14 boots, helmet, pants, jacket, multiple pairs of gloves and goggles, multiple hats, and assorted crap. there is so much room in it, i find myself not cleaning it out often enough because everything fits. so now i have random crap like stickers, old lift tickets, and socks i don't wear in there.
Is this bag big enough to hold size 15...
Is this bag big enough to hold size 15 Men's ski boots?
Hard to say for sure, but its a good size boot box at 4200cu...I'd say it's likely.
I have 14s and they fit fine, so i would say yes.
Big Space, Great bag Little price.
Tons of space in this thing. This last season I was able to make multiple trips with boots, helmet, good amount of ski clothes and the rest of my gear between this bag and a one ski bag. This guy fits carry-on size requirements as well so you don't get reemed by the airlines. Waterproof bottom compartment lets snow melt drain out and keeps all the rest of your gear dry at the same time. Even if you're not traveling this would still be my highest recommendation for a bag based just on the durability and space. And, its a freakin' steal at under $70.
Dakine Boot Locker, 2010
My son has encouraged me to purchase this boot locker for over a year. I did purchase five of them. I was amazed, as everyone else, just how much room they have, and the storage space to carry other things beside the winter clothing. The quality looks good. I would purchase more, even just for travel purposes.
Great bag, just beware of weight if you load it up
Love this bag. 29.5cm Technica Agent 110 boots fit nicely in lower/zippered boot compartment.
Recommend you think about how you want to use the bag. In my case, I never want my boots to go with checked baggage. I always bring them as carry-on. And this is a great bag for that. But if you load up the upper section as some have acknowledged you can, there's no way to get it in the overhead compartment of the plane (and then the flight attendant will take it from you and check it .. bad). In my case, I carried a second pair of (juvey) Nordica boots, a couple of miscellaneous items, and it was fine in the overhead. It was getting a little on the heavy side, though. Helped to have a rollaboard to wheel it around.
If, on the other hand, you're comfortable checking your boots with the airlines, then yes... knock yourself out and load this puppy up. Lots of room for helmet, goggles, clothing.
Build quality (and smart design) is what I've come to expect from Dakine packs/luggage.
