The bag is made of strong but rather thin material so provides little padding for the skis, I have yet to see a flexible skibag that provides any decent padding. Make sure you pack plenty of clothing (socks, shirts, towels, underwear etc.) in there too and the skis should be ok. The material survived the flights without any damage - should last a few years. There is no separate inner membrane to keep the skis dry if the bag is exposed to rain. We could just about have got two pairs of skis in the bag but that might risk straining the zip. Overall OK, nothing special, not expensive.
