Ski and snowboard bags are an indispensable way to transport valuable equipment for avid winter sports enthusiasts, whether professional or amateur, beginner or advanced. Slender bags will fit two full length skis and a pair of poles or a single snowboard, while larger bags may hold two or more sets of skis or multiple snowboards. Ski, snowboard and boot bags made from materials like high-density, impact resistant polyethylene or heavy gauge, water repellent polyester will hold up to brutal weather conditions. Some ski and snowboard bag designs also have mesh panels and grommet openings to allow air to circulate through the case, as well as permit moisture drainage. Interior padding prevents damage from outside forces, while exterior compression straps keep contents secure. Features may include carry handles with padded straps and accessory compartments or pouches to stash things like cleaning supplies and goggles. Select styles even have ball-bearing, in-line skate wheels and bottom runners to pull bags along lengthy hallways and easily maneuver through crowded airports.
