I flew to Salt Lake City from New york with this bag for a week. I have a 152 skatebanana and I got this bag in 166. I was able to fit everything I needed for the week in this bag. the only other bag i flew with was a little carry on with some snacks. this bag has good padding and a comfotable strap. If you don't mind carrying your stuff on your shoulder (no wheels on the bag..) this bag is a great choice.
