Your suitcase is ready, but what’s the best way to transport your skis when you are taking the plane? Which type of ski bag should you choose? Snowleader, the specialist in mountain equipment, provides you with the answers to these questions so that you can make all the necessary preparations for your upcoming winter holiday. Also, check out ski bags made by big name brands, such as Atomic, Evoc and Salomon.
Protection and ease of transport: two important criteria in choosing your ski bag Ski bags serve to protect and transport your gear and so play a more important role than one might think. For sure, it would be a pity for your skis to be all bashed up before you even get to do your first downhill runs. Whether you are travelling by plane, train or car, your first choice should be a padded ski bag. They prevent any damage or potential impacts during transport. Are you travelling with your whole family? If you decide on a bag which can hold several pairs of skis, it might get heavy. That’s why you should go for designs with integrated wheels, like those made by the K2, Douchebag Black and Amplid brands. If you’re only transporting a single pair of skis, a bag with a shoulder strap and padded handle will do the job nicely.
Go for a suitable ski bag It seems so obvious, yet we tend to forget that a bag must fit… the length of your skis. Before you choose a bag, make sure it’s big enough. Do you know the one little tip which makes sure you don’t get it wrong? Go for an expandable design like some of the ski bags made by the Salomon brand. This will give you 20 cm of extra space to pack away your skis or gear.
