fits everything and more!28 Jan 2014

Colour Name: BlackSize Name: One Size
I love this bag, up to, and including, the silent wheels!
The bag is made tough - it feels like it can endure a lot of airline abuse. I was able to fit three pairs of skis (transporting them from the ski room to upstairs to the hotel room), and it fits all of my ski gear, to the point where I was overweight at check-in time (quick fix was to remove the boots and tie them together and carry them over my shoulder.
Only point of minor concern is the boot pockets aren't as space-efficient as packing boots in a 'p' and back-to-front 'b' configuration in the main compartment. The pockets, when populated, displace perfectly fine space in the top and bottom part of the main compartment, which I didn't like vs. my boot configuration that seemingly only occupied a little bigger than one of the pockets.
Another potential point of concern is the bag is so big, it probably doesn't fit in regular sedans - I travelled on public transportation (buses, trains, airplanes, and only taxis in ski areas where they come equipped with dedicated ski carrying equipment). A friend joked we could fit it in his convertible, but the ride would be cold :)
I would have rather bought a more colourful version of the bag, to not be so boring black and distinguish better from others, but they weren't available at the time. Again, not a biggie.
It stores well, too - I chose to store it full-height with my skis (and a dessicant), but only 2/5ths of the length is rigid, so it can fold (it arrives folded, too).
Best feature are the wheels - it'll roll over anything completely silently - no rolling noises!!!

Strong, easily mobile bag that protected my board/gear23 Aug 2013
The wheeled base makes lugging this bag through airports a breeze. It's a tough bag and everything I stuffed inside (pretty cavernous pockets) came out unscuffed. With the board out, it folded in half nicely to lug around inside the cab (board went on the roof). Highly recommend.
I was torn between this one and the other Burton bag for roughly the same price. I read a few reviews about the Burton's wheels breaking so that pushed me towards the Dakine. It's a nice bag with big beefy wheels and I fit my board, binding, boots, helmet, jacket etc...my pretty much everything in it. At first I thought I was going to miss the lack of a shoulder strap, but by the time I cram all that stuff in there it gets pretty heavy so I wouldn't be using it anyway. The wheels and the handles on sides and top are all it needs.
