I just returned from a Detroit-to-Utah-and-back trip and used this bag to hold my board, boots, helmet, and lots of extra layers. It held everything so that all I had to pack otherwise was a small carry-on! I did purchase a luggage strap to wrap around the middle, just in case, but despite a little wear-and-tear on the fabric, this bag held up great, the wheels were super helpful and it was the perfect size to hold lots of gear and THEN some. Highly recommended, esp if you can catch in on Brociety for $40!!!
