The wheels are the things on your snowboard bag that make contact with the road. Bummed is what you are if you don't have this bag.

I used the bag for skis, boots and poles. It was still a little long so I cinched it down with an old dog harness (sure made it easy to recognize at baggage claim). The construction is very good and strong. I only wish it had a few additional simple features like compression straps inside to hold gear in place, cinch straps outside to shrink it for a better fit around your gear, maybe a pocket inside for gloves, goggles, etc. The wheels are nice, but I didn't really use them as it was easier to navigate the airport when carrying the bag since its so long.
Great bag, good bang for the buck.
Great bag if you want to travel for a short trip with a single board (two if you are willing to use an interchangeable set of bindings). Good bang for the buck, just don't forget to slap on the "fragile" tape at the airport.
loved the bag!
Im so glad I decided to get this bag with wheels. It made a big difference going through the airports. It's well padded - it made the cross-country trek. And I love the camouflage sides, super stylin for either sexes. I'm extremely happy with the purchase.
Low Roller Snowboard Bag - 4400cu in
I bought the 180cm. bag. This is very long, like for skis, but is also just the right length for a snowboard with boots at the bottom. If you overlap the boots and board, a shorter bag would be better. The bag's bottom stiffeners are too short, allowing the bag to bend at the end of the snowboard. This allows the bag to drag if you are trying to roll it. I basically had to carry it everywhere, from airport baggage claim to rental car.
Domestic airlines only allow 50lb max weight. You can easily go over the weight limit if you're not careful. It's a big bag!
Great bag for the money
I just used this on a recent trip that involved four planes. It fits all the gear (board, helmet, boots) plus there is still plenty of room to add clothes throughout the bag for additional padding. My only complaint is that in order to take advantage of the wheels, you have to carry the bag using the handle at the end, instead of the handle in the middle because of the position of the wheels. That makes it harder to move through the airport, and part of the bag then drags on the ground. But apparently all snowboard bags are made this way, so there's no alternative. Aside from that, a great bag and very economical without compromising quality.
This is a great bag. Fits my board, boots, bindings, helmet, basically everything. Well worth it.
can't be beat for the $
The low roller isn't the most well finished bag that I've ever used, but it keeps my board and gear PROTECTED from the regular abuse that comes with red-eyed flights and cramped road trips. Even if it lasts for only a couple of seasons, it's worth not having to pay for your buddy's ripped car seat or finding some new base damage at the end of a schlep.
My previous board bag was a huge Ocean & Earth bag. This was a good bag but it was heavy even when empty and was just overkill for two boards.
This bag is perfect for my 166cm board. With enough room for boots and a bit of gear, it won't be too heavy when packed. The only thing it lacks is pockets in the inside of the zip top, but I can live without them.
Actually ordered the 180 but was shipped the 165. No worries, the 165 bag is plenty big for my 168 Baron ES board. It is a great value for the money and seems to be well constructed. I had a Burton Board Case 166 previously (my 168 did not fit)I think this DAKINE bag is as nicely made and material quality as good. It does not have the internal detachable bags that the Board Case provides and maybe not as stretchy, since no neoprene is involved, but both are good bags.
Bag is simple and big enough to fit skis/board in. I needed a bag to travel in that can fit two pairs if skis and some clothes and it's perfect. Easy to roll, not too heavy either, and should be great to travel with.
Good - Could be better.
Ok, fills the need. Good storage but could use additional compartments and shoulder strap.
Withstanding Airport Mishap
This bag is perfect for traveling on airplanes. It has adequate padding and will stand up to the wear and tear inflicted by the airport staff. My bag was actually lost. I imagined it just laying on the run way and knew that my board would come back wangled. When the bag/board was returned to me, it was unscathed! I highly recommend the low roller.
Awesome Snowboard Bag
This bag is currently in southern France with my 18-year-old. It was lost in the San Francisco airport, traveled extensively on several different airlines before arriving at the destination in Spain, and now is bouncing around in a small car with my two sons and friends. So far, it has performed amazingly well. I'm anxious to see how it holds up on the return home on January 27. Thanks for a great product.
Dakine Snowboard Bag is great
The bag holds all of the equipment we need to go snowboarding - bag, boots, goggles, helmet, etc. It is very durable. The wheels are great for rolling instead of having to carry it. Makes it easy to check it onto the plane.
For the price I paid, I wasn't expecting much more than an adequate board bag. The Low Roller is quality, and far surpassed my expectations. I haven't found another bag out there that can compete. Buy it.
