Will the 156cm just barely fit my 156 board or does it leave some extra room?

I have a single 157 board, plus other snow gear to stuff in of course. Will the 166 have too much slack? Is it designed sturdy enough so that the slack won't make it droop and suck? Should I instead try to squeeze it into a156?
These don't exactly have a strong backbone of support running through them. I have one and do the same as you're looking to do. One board, and all my gear. If you had enough stuff you could probably get it to keep from drooping. However, I have a 158 board, and a 156 case, and it still fits. So your 157 shouldn't have any problem fitting into a 156 case.
If your looking for a bag to hold all your board gear, clothes and accessories this is it. Pleanty of room for a few extra boards too. Flawless design, great looking bag
I've put this bag through every thing from multiple luggage checks to cross country trips strapped to the top of the car and it's held up great. You can pack everything you need for an entire trip in it but with new weight limits for the checked baggage you get screwed with additional fees. It is also a great place to stow away all your gear for the summer. Love it and definitely would recommend it to a buddy.
Nice bag, weak zippers
If I hadn't lost a zipper on my first trip with this bag, it would have gotten 5 stars. It weighed in at 49.5 lbs with my son's 143 and my 159, including both bindings, boots, and jackets.
Awesome Bag. Fits all your stuff
Great bag. Fits everything you need. You can effectively carry three boards. Two of them with the bindings off. Same complaint as Arc. Otherwise a great product.
Being a female boarder who does not travel light, I was able to get all my snowboard gear (including helmet), toiletries and casual clothes into the bag with no problem. I have a 148 cm Board and bought a 152 cm bag for some extra room. The compartments are actually useful and the removable boot bags are great. The second large compartment is perfect for another board or any extra clothes you might take on a long trip. Also, all the zippers, handles and straps are high quality.
I ordered the tiger strip in camo and the black, but ultimately went with the black because they didnât have the size I wanted in the tiger stripe. The black is a good looking bag but the tiger stripe is pretty sick if you want to get a little edgier.
Like some other reviews say, the bag is a little heavy so be careful not to over pack it or you will go over weight and the boot bags strap into the place where your bindings are but those are the only two issues with the bag. However, you can move the boot bags around if you un-strap them and Iâm guessing the weight comes from the awesome padding (and probably the wheels) that keeps your board safe while traveling; the piece of mind is worth a couple of extra pounds! That being said, I was still under weight at the airport even with all my âgirlyâ crap in there;)
Overall, awesome bag.
...most excellent bag for a traveling boarder. more than enough room for a few boards, bindings and boots. room left over for gloves, jacket and pants and whatever else you think you can stuff in it...and it rolls!
Tried this and the Wheelie Gig. This is much bigger and better. Deep pockets to hold two boards and two pairs of boots. The removable bags for the boots or other gear is sic.
Easily Handles Two Boards + Gear
Just returned from trip to Vail and my 181 bag was supreme! Packed 2 Boards - one with bindings off, boots plus all my ride gear. The bag easily glides from parking lot to terminal and the side handle makes for easy for the baggage handlers to pick up without grabbing the compression straps. This makes air travel a breeze!
a+ for you guys
i have the wheelie locker. my friend has this bag.... and i give it two thumbs up.
holds two peoples worth of gear for 2 days of riding and hanging out. two boards facing each other boots in between my outer gear in the middle and our overnight stuff in the top part. also i shoved his DOM in the board quill for the hell of it....
and about the boot bags not fitting cuz they go over the bindings... this is true. but the boot bags are on elastic. so you put the boots in them, and clip them in and set them behind the bindings (the straps stretch) and it keeps the board super secure inside there..... actually a really smart design. since the board ist he spine of the bag. love it.
basically i took ONE bag and my backpack w/ all camera gear for 3 days @ bachelor. ( 2 days of riding) and held some of my friends gear for them.
Great Bag - but heavy
This is a stellar board bag. It's well built and will safely store your board(s). The bag has some convenient features that I've come to be thankful for (i.e. sturdy and large zippers, hidden snowboard compartment, boot bags, compression straps, tough shoulder straps, wheels, and more!). My only complaint is the weight; the bag is a bit heavy. I can get two boards, two pairs of boots, two pairs of bindings, two pairs of socks, a couple of beanies and two pairs of gloves in the bag and weigh in at 49.5 lbs. If I stuff anything more into it, it will go over 50lbs. So be warn that this bag, as it is without any gear loaded, is somewhat heavy. If you pack too much, it will go over the airline's baggage weight limit of 50lbs. If they Burton could somehow make it lighter, it would be the perfect bag. I guess that's expected of good construction. Bottom line, its well built but heavy. I'll recommended it though. Can't go on a trip without it.

will this board hold (2) 160 boards with bindings?
Yes it would. You would have to buy the 166cm option and take your bindings off of one board and stack them side by side next to the mounted bindings. That is the only way it would work with two setups. Hope this helps.
Yep definitely it will. I have the 166 version, and we fit 2 boards (150 and 166), both bindings, and 2 pairs of boots in it. Take one pair of bindings off, and you will have to be willing to let the bag "bulge" a little bit. But the zipper will hold - it's held for us for 3 seasons.
wheelie board case
awesome bag. build quality is top notch, great materials. i really like the hardened nylon on the ends to give the tip and tail extra protection and help retain the shape of the bag. i have the 166 and it fits a 159 board, bindings, helmet, outerwear, boots, accessories (goggles, gloves) and enough space remaining to fit about a carry-on luggage worth of clothes. this bag is wide enough to fit any board / binding width unless i suppose you wear size 15 boots.
only minor complaint, as cdawg mentioned, the detacheable boot bag placement is right where the binding are. i don't really care though, i just keep the bags detached and put them where ever these's space

I Have a Burton Board (160) with Mission Bindings that stick out well past the side of the board. Will this board bag fit with the bindings on or will they have to be removed each time? BTW, I am planning to order the 181cm bag...
my son's have 163 wide boards with bindings will this 166 cm bag work?i can't see why not. i have a 166 bag, with 159 board. it's not a wide board (248 waist width), but there's plenty of extra space on the width, including the bindings. i'd guess around 2 inches... still.
