not padded, but good
i just received mine last night. the flannel plaid looks very good and it has backpack straps for easier carrying. if you look in the Q&A section for this product, you'll see my question regarding it being able to withstand being thrown around by airport staff. the rep claimed it was padded, but rest assured there is no padding whatsoever, it's just a bag. i'm going to see how my board/bindings hold up after my flight this weekend, but i'm worried about my bindings/edges.
