I just used this on a recent trip that involved four planes. It fits all the gear (board, helmet, boots) plus there is still plenty of room to add clothes throughout the bag for additional padding. My only complaint is that in order to take advantage of the wheels, you have to carry the bag using the handle at the end, instead of the handle in the middle because of the position of the wheels. That makes it harder to move through the airport, and part of the bag then drags on the ground. But apparently all snowboard bags are made this way, so there's no alternative. Aside from that, a great bag and very economical without compromising quality.
