I've been a fan of Dakine for a while now. I'm still using my Heli Pro pack daily after over 13 years. I was so impressed with my backpack and Dakine's warranty policy I picked up a boot bag a couple years ago. It's served me really well, but I'm heading out to Japan in February for a ski trip and needed a way to travel with all my gear. I bought the 185 cm bag and was able to comfortably fit my 179 cm Line Blend's, 185 cm 4FRNT YLE's, poles, boots, outerwear, and some ski tuning supplies. The tuning supplies tucked away nicely in the exterior pocket. It comes with removable boot back to keep your liners away from wet skis. I had enough room after getting my boots in that I was able to lay two coats, pants, goggle's, helmet, and mitts on top of the skis. Should make life a lot easier getting through the airport and train stations now that I can fit everything in one bag.
