The material of the bag upholds Dakine's quality in rigidity and cool designs. I got the black cheetah print and love it! I have a Salomon Women's Lark 144 cm, and it fits perfectly into the 145 cm bag, with my Medium Burton bindings (make sure you fold down the back-end of them to make them more "flat"), AND my Burton boots. There is still even enough room to throw in a set of extra clothes, gloves, hat, goggles.. you name it, as long as you cleverly pack them into the bag. It is pretty comfortable to carry, but the shoulder strap does not have one of those squishy comfortable pads, it is just the strap.
