Best Snowboard Bags 2021-2022 | Our pick of the best bags to transport your snowboard in

Whether you're travelling by car, airplane or train, make sure you choose the right snowboard bag for your board

Choosing a good snowboard bag is important. After all, your snowboard bag not only needs to protect your snowboard but also your bindings, boots, outerwear and goggles too. With that in mind, you ought to make sure your bag is durable enough to handle the kind of rough treatment it will undoubtedly receive at various alpine airports.

What should you think about when buying a new snowboard bag? Well, first of all, there are the wheels to consider. If you’re going to be traveling longer distances or are expecting a situation where you have to run from one side of the airport to the other, you might want to make sure you choose a snowboard bag with wheels. A board bag with wheels might be a bit more expensive but, trust us, it’s well worth investing in a bag that comes with high-quality skate-style urethane wheels for a smoother glide to the check-in desk.

“Choosing a good snowboard bag is important”

Alternatively, if carrying 23kg of snowboard related stuff on your shoulder isn’t an issue then by all means invest in a cheaper wheels-free option.

Another thing you definitely want to keep an eye out for with snowboard bags is the amount of padding they offer. If you’re planning on going overseas a lot, make sure there is padding at the edges of your bag as it will provide your board with extra protection when it’s getting chucked on and off planes by baggage handlers.

Another major thing to consider when choosing the right snowboard bag is the durability of the material used in its construction. The sharp edges of the snowboard can tear up the bag from within (you want to make sure this doesn’t happen the first time you chuck your stuff in). The more durable the material of the bag, the longer it will last. A long lasting snowboard bag, it’s worth adding, can be good for both the environment and your wallet as you won’t have to chuck it away after one season and buy a new one.

On top of considering all these features, make sure you choose the right length too. There’s nothing more annoying to carry than a floppy board bag, so make sure you get the right size for your board.

As well as all that, you might also want to make sure there are additional pockets for you to stash your goggles, gloves, and passport in. We’re all guilty of stuffing our board bag to its maximum capacity in order to avoid paying for additional luggage, so make sure there’s a pocket for you to stash the important items you’ll need at a moment’s notice.

Snowboard bags also tend to be a bit heavier than your average holiday suitcase so, as a final piece of advice, maybe think twice before you throw in that third jar of peanut butter and fifth pair of goggles. Is it really worth risking excess baggage charges for? Probably not.

Price: €190

Everyone needs a good duffel bag to make their travelling easier. Part of Burton’s AK line, the AK 120L duffel is guaranteed to make a lifelong companion.

The beauty of this simple bag is that it’s light and that it can be stuffed with as much stuff as possibly can fit. The 120L works as well for a quick trip to the gym as it does for a week(end) getaway – depending on how well you pack.

There’s a large zip opening for easy access to the main compartment, an adjustable sternum to keep the bag in place, ergonomic shoulder straps that convert into a haul handle and external compression straps. The haul handles on each end make it easier to carry the bag too.

Burton’s classic Wheelie Locker snowboard bag. Available in three different sizes (156, 166, 181) this beloved bag is a long-running favourite amongst the Whitelines team, and we’re sure we aren’t the only one favouring it.

The Wheelie Locker is the biggest board bag in the Burton line. It can fit multiple boards, boots, outerwear, a helmet, goggles and all the necessities needed for a successful snowboard trip. For added convenience, the bag also comes with a deployable gear bag.

An external zippered accessory pocket comes in handy when travelling, as you can stash your passport and cards in here to keep the hands free when rushing to the gate. For an even smoother ride, Burton’s used the lightweight, durable, and lightning-fast IXION skate wheels too making it easier to fly between your gates while the internal webbing straps will keep the board(s) in place.

All in all, this is a safe choice for anyone looking for a quality board bag big enough for longer trips.

The handles have been cushioned with Velcro closure, making it easier to carry the bag for long distances. If you rather swing it up on the shoulder, the detachable shoulder strap comes with added padding too.

The Black Picture Snowy PT B Snowboard bag is 100% made from recycled polyester, while the other designs stay at a 50/50 ratio between recycled polyester and virgin polyester.

As for the size, the bag is 165cm long, meaning it fits an average snowboard. With the dimensions being 30 x 16 x 165 cm, this isn’t massive, so make sure to not fill it up with heavy stuff as there are no wheels, meaning you’ll end up carrying it on your shoulder.
