Just what I was looking for
PROS: Athalon had three potential carry-on bags to fit my needs, so I called their 800 number and got a very helpful young man who zeroed me in on this bag. I wanted a wheeled bag into which I could put ski boots and enough clothes to ski one or more days if my checked luggage did not arrive with me. A pair of boots fits nicely in the hard sided bottom section, with room for socks, gloves, and a few other small items. Assuming I wear my ski jacket on the plane, that leaves the entire upper section for everything else I might need for at least two days. I can get my helmet in a corner of the top zippered section, but it deforms the outline of the zipped up bag, so I may not go that way for a real ski trip. For a dry run, I fit everything I needed for a 5 day trip to visit family last week, with room to spare. Materials and workmanship seem to be top notch, which I expected based on an Athalon ski bag I have had for 20+ years and the wheeled double ski bag I bought before my last ski trip in March.
