the Essence strap is more ergonomic, padded, and comfortable. Also the baseplate is different than the minx. It is much more durable, responsive, padded, and adjustable. The highback is a little bit stiffer on the Essence as well. Overall the Essence is a higher end, more responsive, more comfortable binding. I would recommend it over the Minx

Its not a very "deep" bag only five inches in from bottom to top. But the bigger the size you get the more stuff you will be able to fit in it. If you get the largest size bag and fold your highbacks down you should be good to go and be able to fit boots as well.

Yeah that board will fit just fine in the 156cm board bag. As far as cost you can go on any airline site and it will tell you how they handle those things.

You'll be good. This board is pretty much fun all over the place. The only time you will notice it kinda lacking is it is not made for high speeds because of how soft it is. But the rocker tech will rule in the powder as well as the park. As far as size, go off your weight and I would say the 155cm would be good. It would handle in all conditions

I would say yes just because of how stiff it is. They have added carbon and titanium to parts of this board and it makes for quite a stiff setup that for the fairly new rider it will feel like the board is riding them more than they are riding it. I would suggest a softer more forgiving board than this.

I would suggest you just by the 154cm option in this one. Reason being for that is this board in a 154cm will be that size, but feel like it is riding much bigger. This is because of the tapered tail (the tail is smaller in width than the nose) this causes the tail to sink easier and the nose to pop up on the snow so you get much better float in the powder. Hope that helps.
