Why we chose the Burton Wheelie Gig Snowboard Bag: It’s a high quality classic.
People tend to be stoked on all the new and shiny things that enter the market and, as a result, tend to sometimes forget to stop and appreciate the old products that have been around for years (some products just last and last). Take the Burton Wheelie Gig Board bag, for example. It’s a quality product, with a great reputation, that people buy over and over again.
Known as Jake’s favourite, the Burton Wheelie Gig Board Bag is probably one of the most commonly seen snowboard bags at the airports. As we all know, our snowboard bags aren’t often handled with TLC by the baggage handlers. Because of this, it’s often reassuring to know that your board is wrapped up safely in a padded bit of kit.

The Wheelie Gig Board Bag has fully padded board protection, meaning you know your snowboard’s safe while you get on with eating the complimentary in-flight cashews. The bag’s also got internal webbing straps to keep your board in place, meaning it won’t constantly be scratching on the inside surface of the bag.
As for space, the board bag will fit multiple boards. Although, if you want to make sure you can fit your boots and bindings too maybe limit it to two or three sticks. You’ll also find an external zippered pocket here, ideal for storing your accessories in (nothing worse than losing your essentials inside a big main compartment)
For a smooth ride, Burton’s added a pair of lightweight and lightning-fast IXION skate wheels. You’ll be able to rocket through those airports in no time, and all without dripping a single drop of sweat.
With a padded shoulder strap for added comfort, as well as side and end haul handles for easy moving, the Burton Wheelie Gig Board Bag remains a favourite within the Whitelines team and has rightly earned its spot in this year’s Whitelines 100.
