Built for the long haul.

The airport is a magical place where everything is in constant motion and nothing stays the same (except the over-priced coffee). You must pass through these walls on the way to pow, but forces conspire to damage your precious cargo. The Burton Wheelie Gig Bag will get your goods (all of them, thanks to the CRAM zone stretchy zipper areas) to the goods. This fully-padded bag for multiple boards has a 600D polyester construction to keep evil at bay, and the Ixion skate-wheel system is as smooth as it gets to get you through to the other side.

  • Ixion skate-wheel system
  • CRAM zones
  • EVA/TPU back panels
  • Hideaway SnakeStack backpack attachment
  • Fit any board from a 146cm to a 181cm

Fits your whole kit so you can fly!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I have flown to with this bag a number of times to Oregon and Washington and it is a no headaches bag that has solid skate wheels. It is very easy to get around with. There is no having to lug the weight all over the airport and to your vehicle. My largest board is a 162 and I sized up to a 166 so I could throw in an extra board. I also fit my boots, jacket, pants, helmet, and gloves in there. I even had room for a wax kit on one trip. It has a securing strap in the bottom to lock your boards down and tons of headroom for your gear. My Wheelie bag has been through baggage claim about a dozen times to and from SLC to the PNW and has never had any problems. It even has a nice front pocket you could throw a couple of tools or wax in. The shoulder carry strap is pretty comfortable as well. The section that holds the tails of your boards is really reinforced so you will never have a board poke through if it gets the airport toss around from the baggage handlers. For the price and how many years I have had mine, it still is a sold bag. I'd buy another one if mine ever wears out.


Worked out perfect on its first trip

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Got the 156 bag and easily fits my 159 lib tech along with helmet, boots, bindings, jacket, pants, gloves and enough socks and drawers for an entire week. Very easy to maneuver during travel and held up nicely to the TSA beatings. If i had flown DELTA, there'd be a good chance the bag would've been ripped in half... like all of my luggage normally is when I fly them.


OK if it exactly fits your needs

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Know that this case should probably be sized exactly for the board that you intend to use it with, and that a shorter board by itself will cause a suboptimal experience. We got the long one (181), long enough to fit a 6'2" guy's 168 boards, thinking that it might be used by a short spouse's 156 board. Doesn't work at all. Because there is no stiffness in the upper end of the case, it will bend and flop down to the end of the shorter board. While there might be a way to add a stiffener to correct this, it seems like a fatal flaw. If you're looking to travel with only a board of a single length that is almost exactly the length of your board, don't share the case, and don't ever travel with a different length board, then this might be for you. Otherwise, stay away.

Was there any damage to the gear inside or it is just the floppiness of it all that you dislike?


First trip was this bags last!!!!

    This bag is the worst travel bag I have every owned. Both zippers broke on the first trip. If you have high quality gloves and neck gaiter do not pack them with you board or anything you care about. The zippers will bust open with just a board in the bag, with little to no pressure on them. Do not buy this bag!!!! Its more likely that you boards and accessory will end up broken and damaged due to failed zippers. This seems to be a common occurrence with this bag. There are other better options than this bag out there. Props to Matt P at back country for taking care of my issues!!! He helped out with my issues. Backcountry stands by the products they sell and has a great return policy.

    Do you have Eclipse Polka Dot in 156 available?

    Hi there,

    We currently do not have that size/color available, but we do have more ordered to come in. We don't have an exact arrival date, but we are hoping to have it available come mid-late December!


    Broke after only one trip

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    After picking my Wheelie Gig up from the baggage claim area, I inspected it for damage. Given the positive reviews and description of this item, I was surprised to find a tear and a broken zipper. I decided to return the bag as I don't trust it will hold up to travel well.

    Looking to buy a Wheelie Gig for my Custom...

    Looking to buy a Wheelie Gig for my Custom X-Wide 168. Will the 166 do or should I get the 181...?

    Hey Paul,

    I'd definitely recommend going with the larger. That way you can fit your board and gear in there without having to struggle each time!

    Hey guys I have the 181. The problem you WILL run into is nothing can weigh over 50lbs. If it does you MUST pay a fee. I'm an airline pilot and even I have to pay. I've got the locker. I'm looking to get rid of it now. I got one cheap FYI


    AWESOME - this bag is awesome

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    dude, i bought the 166 for my 156 board. we went to breck and i didn't even need a suitcase. I fit all my gear, clothes, everything in this beast. It took a beating at the airport from the bag handlers and it held together. It's all scuffed up but no tears or damage to anything inside.

    stoked on the purchase.

    I have a 152 board, should I get a 152 bag...

    I have a 152 board, should I get a 152 bag or 156???

    Best Answer


    A 152cm board will fit in the 152 bag, but it will limit your space for other items. On the other hand there is no downside to giving yourself the extra room in the 156. It will ensure that you can fit a board with mounted bindings and plenty of additional gear. Go for it! It's not like we are charging by the centimeter here.

    I got a 156 for my 156 board, and it has been big enough to hold my onboard bindings, protection gears, boots and helmet just fine (not much additional space though).


    Does the job

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Held my board with bindings attached, helmet, boots, gear, jacket, pants, and some other clothing. I packed it full, so much that I could see some of the stitching stretch. I won't pack it that full again. If I could improve this bag, it would be by making the handle on the end of the bag stiffer and adding some internal pockets or compartments. I didn't attempt to use the shoulder pad as the bag was heavy after packing, and I've read that the strap can break. I had 55 pounds in this bag. I liked that there was a strap on the inside for the board so it didn't move around the bag.

    I have found the CRAM zone zipper part to be none existent; everything seems rigid.

    OMG! I ordered one of these for my son...

    OMG! I ordered one of these for my son and don't recall picking a size.

    His board wont fit---and now I have to return. What size bag do I need for a 161cm board? And do you have one in stock in black? Thanks!

    The 166cm size is what you'll want, and yes it's in stock in black. 181 could also work, it will just be unnecessarily long.

    It looks like we have a few on order that should be here in the next 1-2 weeks. I'd check back in every few days to see if we have the 166 Rasta back in stock for you.

    Will the 166 fit my 168 board? I don't...

    Will the 166 fit my 168 board? I don't want to jump up to the 181 bag. Seems like a huge jump.

    Your 168 board will not fit in the 166 bag. Jumping to the 181 won't be too huge either- the difference is really only just over a half of an inch.

    Is this bag fully padded? And big enough...

    Is this bag fully padded? And big enough to fit a helmet? My board is less than 150cm, and I wear a small helmet.

    Will board with bindings attached and boots...

    Will board with bindings attached and boots fit in here with taking them apart

    Best Answer

    I have the 166 bag. I can fit 2 - 160 cm boards, one with bindings mounted, a second set of bindings not mounted. I also have my boots, 2 pair of gloves, 2 pair of pants in the bag, hats, goggles, etc. Plenty big for all of that.
