Although I've only taken one trip to Jay Peak on a bus with this bag, it's pretty rugged and constructed well. It holds a ton, I ride a 159 Lib Tech and got the 162 Majestic Black Plaid and I didn't have a problem with putting all my gear (plus swimsuit, and off mtn wear) in there for 3 days. I sort of wish it had pockets on the outside for the boots but it's really not an issue for me. The wheels come in HANDY especially if you fully load it and don't want to lug that thing all around the airport, etc. I plan on using this for 10 yrs so it better last!
