The North Face Base Camp Roller Board Bag

You’re going to need a reliable board bag if you plan to hit the dusty road in search of deep snow this season. The Base Camp Roller from The North Face is constructed of a nearly bombproof polyester with TPE PVC coating for added protection from the elements so you can be sure that your gear arrives in the same condition it left. Combine this weatherproof and tear-resistant build with an adjustable length design and additional zippered mesh pockets for added storage, and you’ve found yourself a board bag that can hold up no matter where your travels take you.

Dakine Low Roller Board Bag

The Low Roller from Dakine is one of the most versatile board bags on the market, making it great for everything from a weekend trip to your local resort or a 10-day journey around the globe. The 360-degree interior padding will guarantee that your gear remains safe even if it gets tossed around, and the removable interior boot and sock bags will keep you organized and stink-free for the duration of your journey. But that’s not all, the Low Roller also clocks in at a measly 6.2 lbs.–so you can pack freely without fear of additional baggage fees at the airport.
