My Wheelie Gig has toted my wife and my gear on the road and on a few flights. Airline abuse did in my last bag (burton board sack) but this one has held up really well--even with our 166 Gig packed full. It's durable construction, for us, had one exception: the shoulder strap broke the first time we used it. Still, my wife and I give the Burton Wheelie Gig Bag top marks. For us it's the perfect balance of size and portability.
