When you’ve spent half a fortune on a new snowboard, you’d want to make sure that the board stays in one piece when being transported to the mountains, hence the importance of a good snowboard bag.

Even if it at times this may be out of our hands (looking at you abusive baggage handler), a good board bag is of crucial importance when travelling with your kit. First of all, you want to make sure there’s enough padding to protect the board, especially its edges. If your goal is simply to drive the board from place A to B a simple sack-like bag may do, but if you’re planning to fly it overseas, make sure the extra padding is there.

Another thing you may want to pay attention to is the materials. Durable and reinforced stitching make a huge difference, as we’ve seen bags being sliced through thanks to the sharp edges of the board, leaving the board exposed to more harm.

“First of all, you want to make sure there’s enough padding to protect the board, especially its edges”

When buying a new snowboard bag, make sure you get the right length for your board. The standard length is usually about 166cm, so those rocking a longer board might want to keep their eyes open for something a bit longer. Ladies and kids are probably better off buying something shorter, eliminating dead space inside.

Paying extra for another carry-on is something we’d all like to avoid, so stuffing your board bag to its full capacity is something we’re all guilty of. If fitting all of your stuff into the bag is something you often find yourself struggling with, you might want to choose a snowboard bag with plenty of extra space.

Be aware though, that if choosing a big snowboard bag, it usually comes with a cost – weight. Bigger board bag weighs significantly more on their own, so be careful with packing it to the extent that you’ll end up paying for excess baggage charges (think twice before you fill them with the kitchen sink).

Speaking of heavy luggage, you might want to pay those extra bucks for a model with wheels. Carrying 23kg of shit on your shoulder can be all fun and games when you only have to transport it between your front door and the car, but trust us, running around Geneva airport with it, is not. A bag with wheels is an investment well worth the money and the best snowboard bags even feature skate-style urethane wheels for a smoother glide to the check-in desk.

To make things easier, you might want to get a bag with a couple of pockets, i.e. an outside pocket to stash your leash when checking in the bag. Inside pockets also make it all immensely more organised, so you won’t have to go through the whole bag when trying to find those socks you ‘threw somewhere in the bag’.
