Once you’ve invested in gear, it goes without saying that you want to protect it, especially if you travel. To minimize scrapes and damage to your equipment during transport, a good ski bag or snowboard bag is definitely a worthwhile investment. Crafted of rugged materials, ski bags typically include a padded shoulder strap to make carrying your equipment a lot easier. Snowboard bags are available in both padded and unpadded models, depending on your preference, and many offer additional compartments to hold accessories or even a pair of boots. (Of course, you can always pick up a separate ski boot bag, too). Ready to scope out our ski bags and snowboard bags from High Sierra, Athalon, SRD and more? Your gear will thank you.
