solid, well-built bag provides good protection for your gear. i put 2 boards, 2 pr bindings (had to remove both), 2 pr boots, 2 helmets, and a couple other small items in there. it weighed in at 49.5 lbs, just under the airline's allowable weight. the compression straps are a nice bonus, and the heavy duty, lockable zippers held up well. If you're looking to fly with a decent amount of gear, and don't want an enormous bag, this is a good option for the money.
