Its obvious this has no padding... I don't get why the other reviewers are giving it a lower rating... it is as described. There's a reason burton sells more than one type of bag. No reason to give it a 3 and 4 stars. This bag was designed for one thing and one thing only, to put your board in for traveling by car. Just read the review, even backcountry says that you shouldn't check it at an airport. I use this for throwing it in the back of my pickup and driving to the mountain. Yes, theres no padding, but there is a layer of protection so the board won't get scratched up. I use it for my custom x and my rome postermania (not at the same time though), and it works perfectly.
