Perfect Sized Duffel For Ski Tavel?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have been looking for a new duffle bag for next ski season and I can't remember what size I have been using. I've been looking on line and I'm thinking about something between 90L (5550 cu. in.) & 110L (6700 cu. in.). I seem to remember having a 6000 cu. in. in the past that I couldn't lift when it was full. I think 5500 will be too small but 6700 will be way to big!? I need a bag that will work for a week or two at a time.
 
So I was wondering what size you all use that will hold evrything including ski boots?

Thanks,

I have been using the  HOT GEAR BAG since they first came out.
I have one of the very first bags they sold.

I still have the original they sold and several of the newer bags.

Warm boots are great!!!!!!!

I've been using this Dakine Wet/Dry Duffle for the past two seasons.  It's only 4620 cu, but everything seems to fit nicely. 
Take a look:

I'm also looking into something like Patagonia's Black Hole bags. Any thoughts on these?

Must have stuff for ski travel.

Double ski SPORTUBE.COM which you can easily hold up to 50LBS.  Single pair of skis is about 25 lbs.  May as well take advantage of the extra 25 lbs in your free ski bag. How do you know your bags are under 50lbs.  Buy a digital scale like the following.  You can't afford the cost of a bag that weighs in over 50lbs.  With a little bit of work you can get 50lbs in one check in bag and another 50lbs in your free ski bag.  You want a carryon bag for your ski boots and enough clothes to ski on rentals when the airlines loose your skis and checked in bag.
