Dakine low roller bag
I bought 3 of these for my kids. My wife and i have burton bags. I like these more due to the fact they have a seperate boot pocket for each boot. You can hold your board with bindings on,jacket,pants,helment,gloves etc in the bag. Very good quality and i would recommend it to anyone. Great protection for your favorite board and gear!
just the right size
Picked up the Woodland colored version at the end of the season, haven't had a chance to fly with it yet, but since I bought it I decided to test it out on my way to the Sundance resort. My Burton custom fit without a problem and my girlfriends board fit with her small binding still attached (most of the time the second board would have to go in with the binding removed, her bindings are strange). Padding seemed good, and the boot pockets are great. Still had room for gloves and jackets stuffed in, but definitely not enough space for this bag to replace a board bag and a duffel for a longer trip, which is fine by me. Originally bought a Burton Wheelie Board Case, but the thing was HUGE and would have cost $$ to check on a flight by the time I filled it. This Dakine on the other hand is about perfect, my GF and I can check our boards and some gear, and carry-on the rest. Only negative is the amount of locks needed to secure the boot pockets.
hands down best bang for your buck
got the 175cm, could easily hold 3 boards and the bindgings if you take them off, probably fot a pair of boots in here, i held 2 board, 2 pairs of bindings and a pair of boots in here with some room left over. so much room and the wheels are a must on long trips.
I bought the 165cm for my 156cm board. It fits with plenty of extra space in the main compartment. The padding seems sufficient, but I haven't taken it on a plane yet. The pockets fit my gloves, goggles, extra socks without a problem and can fit much more. I'm unable to fit my size 10 boots in them, but they will fit in the main compartment with my board if I position them correctly. The only thing I was expecting but didn't find was some sort of velcro strap or something to secure the board in the main compartment.
Dakine Low Roller 157cm
I got the pink plaid 157cm for my 146 board. Depth-wise, it JUST fits with the bindings. The boot pockets also fit my women's size 8 boots perfectly, with a little extra room to store goggles, beanies, etc. I got the 157 mainly bc that's the largest size that most airlines accept for check-in (without an added fee). However, as a bonus, there is still extra room to store my boarding clothes. My only complaint is that there aren't extra pockets on the inside to store small personal items.
I was very impressed when i got the low roller. I got the smallest one for my board which is a 143cm. there's plenty of room for the board with bindings plus all my other gear goggles pants whatnot. my boots fit with no problem. thanks for the awesome gear.
Great bag and then some
Great bag. Has it all and room to fit boots and lots more. Now with all the extra luggage charges on travel this will save you money. I am very impressed withthe quality and ease of use. Buy it you will not be dissapointed.
Good bag, but not wide enough...
I purchased the 165cm, for my 162 board. The bag is great and does hold my 162 board, however I also have Burton Cartel Bindings (size L) and I can not zip the bag shut with the bindings on my board. The bag needed to be about 2 inches wider so the zippers can meet. Like I said it is a great bag that offers good padding, but it is annoying taking my bindings off everytime I go on a trip. Also one other problem I have had is that the separate section to hold your boots can easily get caught in the main zipper. Be careful not to get it caught.
You can't beat the FUNk
If you have never order from these guys,(dOgFuNk) make it a top priority. If you ever have a problem with anything, they take care of it. No matter how big or small the problem might be.
As for the board bag, what do you expect? Its a board bag. Great price and fast shipping, always makes for a great deal.
Will the 157cm bag hold a 156cm snowboard?...
Will the 157cm bag hold a 156cm snowboard? Not sure if the interior dimensions are what is listed on the site. thanks
Yes it will fit a 156cm board. However I would suggest sizing up if you are going to be carrying other gear inside, more boards, or bindings with the boards as well.-----------------------------------------yeah dude definitly size up, your board will be a tight squeeze and thats just not good with luggage...i think i can see why you asked that tho, becuase of the huge gap between sizes after 157, trust me a big bag is worth it, you wont have to stuff as much and its nice to have a snowboard bag that can fit a lot more than just a board in it
bag search ends here
i also bought this bag for a week long trip to Steamboat CO (divebum, hope you enjoyed the pow as much as i did). the padding and tarp lining was great because i saw how the bag got chucked onto the planes. liked the zipper locks too.
this bag is all you need if you are not a ridiculous over-packer. my boyfriend and i (147 and 159 boards, respectively) both had 165 bags and each of us fit everything - full kit, snow gear, street clothes and bathroom bag - with some room to spare. my bag weighed just over 40 pounds at check in aka wheels were SO necessary when dealing with the subway and airport. backpack straps would have worked too though...
so yeah, this bag really is the way to go.
the way to go
i also bought this bag for a trip to Steamboat CO (divebum, hope you enjoyed the pow out there as much as i did). it is padded and tarp lined, which is good because i saw how the baggage loaders chuck my stuff onto the plane. thanks guys...
all i needed was this bag and a backpack for carry on stuff for a week out there. bought a 165 and my short girl 147 board left extra room at the top so my helmet easily zipped into the top pouch. both boots both fit into the other pouch. jacket, pants, base layers, tshirts, cardigans, 1 pair of jeans, mittens, socks, AND bathroom bag all stowed away in the extra spaces in the bag/pouches.
weighed 40 pounds at check in aka i would have not made it to JFK if it did not have WHEELS! i also would have done well if it had backpack straps...
Did the job!
I bought this for my trip to Steamboat. The bag and my gear survived the trip with no problems! It fit board with flow bindings, jacket, pants, boots and other gear with no prob. I also like the fact it has zippers with the option for TSA approved locks.
great for skis too!
I got the 157cm with wheels for my skis (156cm) for a recent trip from NY out to Aspen/Vail. Love love love the wheels, they so key in airport travel. Padding is solid, also fit my boots, poles and most of my ski clothes (especially since AA now charges to check even just ONE bag)! Highly recommended for skis as well.
I got the 175cm Bag. I have 2 boards and they'll both fit just fine if I take the bindings off one. Plenty of room to stash pants, jackets, small people, goggles, food, and anything else you might want to take with you. The only thing I was bummed out about is I have a size 13 boot and they don't fit too well in the "boot pockets". They'll fit in there but the zipper won't zip all the way. If you happen to have the same big foot problem I do the pockets work well for jackets, pants, and thermal underwear. Good solid construction and has plenty of padding. I haven't gone on an airplane with it, but I don't think it would create any problems. On a side note the picture of the red shotgun doesn't do it justice. it's freaking cool!
Great bag, perfect for travel!
This bag has excellent padding and held a ton. It has two huge pockets, perfect for boots and the rolling wheels make it easy for travel. I recently traveled with it and was able to fit all my boarding necessities along with the rest of what I needed for my vacation, saving me money having to check a second bag. I ride a 148 and got the 157 bag, it fit perfect with a little extra room. If you want more room for packing, I'd say to get a longer one. I would have if I realized it is a great double as a suitcase!
This bag is terrific. I was able to get my board (with the bindings attached) two sets of boots (one for snowboarding and one for regular off the mountain use), jacket, gloves, pants, sweatshirts, helmet, goggles, and all of my other accessories in the bag. With that being said I did get an oversized bag - I got the 175 bag and my board is only a 160, (that is only about 6 inches over) to provide a little extra storage. It is well padded and stood up well on a 5 hour flight to Vail. It is worth the extra money to buy a bag with wheels, they really helped. And when you finish on the mountain the bag is great for storing everything in one place. Also a great web site. They were able to ship the bag to me express, and didn't overcharge me to get the bag fast. I highly recommend.
Has anyone compared this bag to the Burton...
Has anyone compared this bag to the Burton wheelie gig?
LR Dakine SB
Got this bag for x-mas and I LOVE it.
Fit everything mitts, helmet, goggles (in a case), wrist guards, board (with bindings), boots.
Everything is snug but protected = perfect.It is a beautiful beautiful creation to say the least.
cool home for ur board
sturdy and nicely padded, kept my board safe on a 10 hr flight. I got the 157 for my 153 board. Enough room to hold board, boots, bindings, helmet, jacket pants, etc. Zippers could be a bit tighter, i was afraid they might unzip if i didn't tie them together. love the look!
