Does anyone know of a cheaper substitute for a sportube? I have a hard time justifying spending over $150CDN for a piece of plastic.
About the only other option is to wrap clothing around your skis and stuff them in a ski bag. I used to do that and then splurged for the Sportube (actually own a couple). If you look closely on eBay you can occasionally find them for cheap.
Can't speak from personal experience, but here is a "hybrid" option, which is a soft bag with molded portions where most needed.
Not sure it's much cheaper than Sportube though...
