This bag is huge (almost cumbersome when fully loaded). It has room to store 2 sets of big and/or all mountain skis with bindings, poles (2 sets), boots (2 sets), helmets (2) and other gear. But when fully loaded it gets heavy and a little awkward to get around airports, busses, rental cars, etc. with. It absolutely held everything I expected and more and at the first airport there were no problems, but the second airport (both were flying Southwest) I was notified the bag was over the weight limit...so just be forewarned that just because it holds everything doesn't mean you'll avoid more baggage fees. Additionally, the padding is good but I still wrapped gear with towels as one set of boots was damaged (scuff & minor scrapes to paint) by baggage handlers. All in all it's a great bag, but in the future I may not fully load it up to avoid issues with weight and ease of getting around with it.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
