i bought a 157 bag and it fit my 156 burton perfectly with bindings attached. took this on a cross country flight and the bag held up well. separate dual boot compartments are great, which the burton bags do not have. i had enough room to fit my pants, jacket, fleece, and gloves without the bag feeling overstuffed, allowing me to use my regular luggage for everyday clothes. i was originally going to buy a bag with wheels, but it didn't seem necessary during my trip.
