i snagged this bag for my trips and couldn't be happier. really sturdy and can hold tons of stuff. I havent had any issues with stuff getting damaged and will put it to one final test when i fly to whistler. The pics are a little blurry but I can get both my size 12 snowboard boots in one pocket and my wifes size 6.5 boots in the other. I can also drop in my board (166 wide) and my wifes (150) skis and still be just under the 50lb mark for the airlines.
