Padded protection good. Ample storage for skis up to 205 cm; PLENTY OF ROOM for extras (sox, underwear, etc). Stress points on straps well riveted and bar-tacked. A long, adjustable strap (with clip) reduces overall bag length to accommodate shorter skis; the excess strap kind of dangles...a little annoying. Handle straps have comfort pad; can be a bit tight if used as a shoulder strap. Outside zippered gusseted pocket (17"l x 6"w x 2"d), ample for books, travel papers, gloves, etc. Bag uses near-full length DOUBLE-ended zipper, both zips can meet in the middle under the handle, or at either end. Nice navy blue color with black accents, gray straps. I think this one is a winner, time will tell. No telling what those "luggage handlers" at the airport can do, I once had truck tire treadmarks on my luggage years ago and everything inside was crushed FLAT and destroyed.
