Best Snowboard Bags 2019-2020

Chosen by the Whitelines Test Team

It should go without saying that the best snowboard bags will get your precious kit to the mountains in one piece. Boards might be built to withstand constant abuse in the park and backcountry, but they’re often no match for an angry baggage handler.

As such, your first port of call should be a snowboard bag with plenty of padding. Your edges, in particular, are prone to getting dinged so avoid simple sack-like designs unless you’re only ever going to be driving your gear from A to B.

Durable materials and reinforced stitching are also essential – we’ve seen many a bag sliced clean through in places thanks to those sharp edges, leaving one section of the snowboard dangerously exposed.

Snowboard bags meant for kids’ and women’s boards tend to be shorter, while there are often a couple of different lengths available in the same men’s model – typically a standard length (accommodating decks up to 166cm or so) and an extra long version (166cm+) for the lanky fellas amongst us.

If you’re heading out on holiday with a ton of stuff to pack, and you’re staring down the barrel of separate airline fees for each bag, then it’s tempting to choose a snowboard bag with plenty of extra space in the hope you can get away with using it for everything bar your carry-on.

Be warned, however: monster board bags (such as the infamous TSA Danny Wheeler World Traveller back in the day) weigh significantly more on their own, and there’s a good chance you’ll get nailed with excess baggage charges if you then go on to fill them with the kitchen sink.

Speaking of rollers, it is well worth the extra few bucks to get a model with wheels. You’ll thank us when you’re hauling 23 kilos of shit from one side of the airport to the other. The best snowboard bags even feature skate-style urethane wheels for a smoother glide to the check-in desk.

Finally, have a think about your storage options beyond the board itself. Snowboard trips involve a ton of kit so it’s nice to have a variety of pockets to help organise all those bits and pieces. Boot bags, for one thing, are especially useful – if only to keep your stinking wet footwear separate from your clothes on the way home.
