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.
