Buying ski trip specific travel bag

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Wanting everyones opinions on what to get -

 

Must hold ski boots(atomic race rester race boots so not light)

the lighter the better(usually 23kg allowance)

the cheaper the better but must last(last one dying after 18 years)

Must hold ski gear and clothes for a week

not to carry skis got a bag for that

 

My last bag was an Ogio bag bought in Killighton when i was about 16/17 years old and finally the wheels are falling off... 

 

right now i am finding these - 

 

Great Quality but only one compartment

Scared too small and worries me no mention of weight

Scared too big and no mention of weight

http://uk.oakley.com/en/mens/bags-accessories/bags-backpacks/motion-115l-roller/product/92537/?skuCode=92537-001&categoryCode=m0601

 

like this one but again is it big enough

Very light but is it big enough

http://www.quiksilver.co.uk/delay-suitcase-EQYBL03003.html?dwvar_EQYBL03003_color=bmj9&dwvar_EQYBL03003_size=1size#cgid=men_accessories_luggage&start=6&hitcount=21

 

So far the favourite may be a touch heavy as can get it for a good price

Seems to me the best overall but hard to find

Here's a 2015 review of the DB.  I first saw a review by an Aussie in 2012.  Since the creator, Jon Olsson, is traveling all the time as a pro skier, I assume it holds up well.

Have you viewed the video of how it works?

Found these threads tagged under Travel Tips.  Might give you a few other ideas of American brands.

Oops, scanned and answered way too fast. :o

 

Although the combination of the DB ski bag and DB roller bag seems like a good idea.  But better for someone tall like you than someone short like me.
