You should get a bag that is at least 5 cm bigger than your board if you plan on keeping your boots in the bag as well. Also this bag is not padded so it is not good for the airplane if you have an expensive board, but you can still use it on the airplane just make sure the airline you fly through insures sporting goods. Delta, southwest, and skywest should. These bags are great at just hiding all your stuff. Pictures of the colors are not quite as they seem. The equestrian antique is not plaid it is squiggly lines that are in horrizontal and vertical lines. The industrial plaid looks ugly in the picture but it is my favorite color in person. All the other colors are what they appear to be.
