I have had this bag for a couple years now, and it has been on quite a few planes and it still looks great. The fabric stands up really well to standard wear & tear that comes with traveling. The wheels make it so much easier to travel with compared to the bag I had before.
I bought this bag for a winter season that i spent in New Zealand. I was there for 6 months & this held everything I needed for snowboarding; board, boots, helmet, all my base layers, multiple sets of outerwear, and there was still room to shove other things in. I bought a 157, which works perfectly for my 143 board & all my gear. I wear size 6.5 boots and have put both boots in one boot pocket, using the other pocket for things I wanted to keep separate.
I have also used this bag for shorter trips, and there is so much room that for a week or weekend trip I can put everything I need in this bag, rather then taking this & a suitcase. (i'm a girl, so i think this is pretty impressive as i tend to over pack)
My roommate has borrowed my bag for a couple ski trips & she can fit 2 pairs of skis plus all her gear in the bag. (she just got her own bag b/c she loved mine)
I am so happy with this bag that I plan to buy the dakine split roller for future travels, to replace my broken suitcase. Another great thing about this bag is my grey & purple plaid snowboard bag stands out from all the black snowboard bags that are in the oversized baggage area.
