Brandon Gwrote a review of DAKINE High Roller Snowboard Bag on March 19, 2015
Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
First off: this bag is awesome. It's durable. It's strong. IT'S HUGE! It has tons of padding, all the way around (even for the top compartment). The wheels are big and tough, yet they roll as smooth as butter. I've owned the Dakine Low Roller also and I can say, Dakine makes excellent products. The boot compartments fit my size 14 boots (one in each compartment) with ample space left over for other gear. I put two complete setups in (two 162W boards + two sets of large bindings), two big jackets, two snowboard pants, my helmet, gloves, three goggles, and a few shirts, and there is still LOADS of space left in here. It's probably a little over half-way full. For real, I could pack at least 35 more pounds of clothes/gear in here.
Here's the problem. This bag is actually TOO big. If overweight airline fees weren't an issue, I'd go with this bag 10/10 times. But we live in a world where overweight fees are absolutely a factor. On the vast majority of airlines (here in the States anyway) you're better off checking a second bag, than checking a single over-weight bag. I have this thing barely over half-way full, and it's pushing 50lbs. There are other bags out there that are a little smaller (READ: LIGHTER), that can carry just as much gear. I kinda blew this factor off when choosing this bag, and I definitely regret it.
I was deciding between this, and a few Burton bags (Wheelie Board Case, Wheelie Gig) both of which are smaller, and after seeing how hyper-massive this is, I'm going to trade it out for one of those. At this point it's about practicality.
If you don't care about overweight airline fees, and you want a very large and excellently-made bag, this is your boy. But for the rest of us, I have to recommend against it.
I don't say this often, but I need to find a smaller bag.
