Ski Bag Question

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Will most single ski bags fit two pairs of skis? All I want is to put two pairs in to carry from the car to the lodge. This is the bag I am looking at:


What do you think?

If you want to carry 2 pairs of skis get a double ski bag. Most single bags will be too tight to fit 2 pairs.

if you are just carrying them from the car to the lodge, then the easiest would be to forget the bag, and carry on pair over each shoulder.

Be careful even with double bags. I have seen some that are not wide enough for for skis with the newer higher bindinge. The best is to try them out for size before you buy.

I agree but the gf is dead set on getting ski bags for some reason.

I think I'll skip eBay then and just go to a shop. Thanks! JC

Or go to the shop, see what bag fits two skis best, THEN check eBay for that bag!!!

Sounds simple eh?

Just one thing - that really annoys shops, and it's one of the reasons there aren't as many ski shops as there used to be - people come in, try gear on, then go online and buy it, so the shop provides you with customer service, and you return the help by not doing business with them.

Good point. My new 165s don't fit in the bag my old 208s fit in; I can't get the zipper done up over the bindings.

Well said! I have found most dealers will get real close to ebay prices on new up to date items if you ask.

I agree as well. I bought my skis online and never went to a single shop for advice on them. I bought my ski boots at a shop though where advice was paramount. And trust me, it isn't like I could have bought the boots on eBay for half the price... there are ton on there for sale. I figure that the boot fitters definitely earn their keep and deserve business.

If I was to go to a shop to try out a ski bag, it would be one of the big sporting goods stores where 5 mins of their time is no biggy. Who knows, if its a good deal, I may even buy the bag there. I did glance at some ski bags at the ski shops while I was heat fitting my boots but feel that they were waaaaay overpriced. I mean, c'mon, its just a bloody bag. So I won't be bothering the specialty ski shops with my bag sizing investigations.

I ended up getting a Rossi double bag on sale at Sport Check for $20!
