Only bottom is padded
"Lightly padded" means "only the bottom is padded," not the sides or top. This bag is similar to the cheaper Burton Space Sack with the addition of a lightly padded bottom. Not quite sure what type of "protection" it would offer, so I'm returning it for a better quality bag. I definitely wouldn't put my board on an airplane with this bag.
So, I'm giving it a 3 star rating which means - It's a bag that I would use to store my snowboard under my bed, in my basement, or when traveling by car. Oh but wait - I don't need a bag to store my board under my bed, in my basement, or when traveling by car.
