Product Description

The Ultimate Ski and Snowboard Travel Case! This is a solid hard case rather than those flimsy soft bags that get torn up by the luggage handlers in airports. This case can hold both skis and snowboards along with some of your other gear like boots, snow pants, hats, and gloves. 

Sure there are tons of soft fabric bags out there that are cheaper than this but if you want to protect your skis and snowboards and make sure they make it out to the mountain in the same working condition as they left your house - you need this ski case! The Sportube Travel Cases are made out of High-Density Polyethylene which makes them strong but lightweight. The hard plastic shell offers superior protection over a soft bag and creates a shield around the equipment protecting its contents better than a nylon bag. The hard shell plastic doesn't tear and is resilient to dings and bangs. There are no buckles, zips or permanently attached straps to get ripped, torn or broken. Therefore, it will hold up better and last much longer than a soft bag. Some airlines will only take liability for skis and boards packed in a hard case, soft bags may require a signed liability release. 

Sportube stands behind their product with a 5 year warranty. The guys at Sportube thought of everything for this product. It has wheels for easy carrying, the ends are padded in foam to protect your skis, the case itself is adjustable in length to fit your snowboards and skis, you can lock the case, and you can ship it via UPS or Fedex without a box. 

A great feature about this hard carse is that it integrates seamlessly with Sportube's Boot Bags
 using their Hitchin technology. Essentially, Sportube has designed it so that the boot bag can easily "piggyback" on the bottom of their hard ski cases. Together, a hard ski case and this bag make a complete transport system for all of your ski gear. Since Sportube's hard cases can be rolled, it creates an effortless way to roll everything around in an airport or parking lot. If you don't already have a way to transport your boots and other gear, then we recommend a Sportube boot bag because everything they make is premium quality. 

About Sportube
Established in 1996, Sportube is the World's #1 supplier of hard sided travel cases for Skis and Snowboards, Fly Fishing Rods and Reels, Spearfishing equipment, Water Skis and much more.

Will My Skis Fit? As skis and bindings evolved, in 2006, the mold of all Sportube cases was modified to increase the size to accommodate all ski models and binding types. If you have have a question about your particular set of skis and bindings, please double check the dimensions above vs. the widest part of your ski.  We found we were able to fit a twin tip, full rocker pair of skis that are 160mm at their widest point. As long as you have regular alpine bindings, you are in the clear. If you do have riser plates or demo bindings (taller due to adjustment track), your skis need to be 140mm or less at their widest point. 

The ski and snowboard travel case is slightly shorter than the ski only versions. Make sure to check the length of your skis. If they are longer than 72" (183cm) you are going to want to check out a Double Ski Travel Case | Sportube 

What's Included  
  • 1 - Series 3 Sportube Hard Case
  • 1 - Easy Pull Removable Handle
  • 1 - Wire Case Pin
  • No Rubber Straps or Bands are included. Please make sure to get the strap and band accessory pack to properly load your travel case with skis

If you have a lot of ski gear and you want to take it with you on your next trip this is what you need.  I can speak from experience that airline travel is really tough on ski bags.  I have gone through at least two ski bags that got ripped, torn, and busted zippers all from the airlines.  I am one of those who usually takes 2 pairs of skis with me and also stuffs the bag extremely full of all kinds of ski gear so it is quite the load the bag has to support.  The Sportube is just such a better way to do it.  Think about it, hard plastic vs cloth - I think you know which one is going to win.  I will say the packing of a Sportube is a bit more complex especially if you want to fit in all the other ski gear likes gloves, socks, ski pants, underlayers, etc.  In the end I can be confident my skis are going to make it to my final destination in one piece with this Ski Travel Case.  If you are like me and don't live by the mountains, you want to make the most of every ski trip, so why chance it with an inferior ski bag?  Get this one!

Best Way to Travel with Skis (PERIOD!)

I love to ski and I travel all over in search of fresh pow. This hard case makes it so much easier to travel with my skis. I know they will get there unbroken and it is much easier to roll a hard case than a sagging bag. I got the biggest one to fit my pow skis and somtimes I bring my telemarks + I can fit my gear. Sweet!

Q:
Currently, I am on my second soft double ski bag to carry one pair of 168cm [66"] alpine skis/poles with Knee Bindings and a lot of clothes -- and it needs repairing despite all the padding I put round the skis and their tips/tails. It comes out to 50# and is about 11.5"x7.5"x75" - the bag itself is 8.5#. I am thinking theSport Tube double ski bag does not have enough volume, but the snowboard Tube does. Plus with the additional volume of the snowboard Tube, there should be less "cramming" to get everything inside making it easier for TSA to unpack and repack the larger Tube. I will have to pare back my stuff a few pounds to get back to 50# total.

So how is the larger/heavier snowboard Tube, with one set of skis and a week's worth of clothing going to work?
 
A:
You have done a good comparison of these travel case options for your gear already. The ski/snowboard tube, seen here, is larger. If your main concern is the space, that case would be the way to go. As you noted, the thing to be concerned about is the weight, but as long as it is just one pair of skis and clothing, you should be able to make the 50 pound cutoff, and it would work for your travel needs.
 
Q:
Do airlines charge extra for these ski travel hard cases? I am considering purchasing the model that will hold 3 pairs of skis and I know I can keep the weight under 50 pounds but I am concerned they will charge extra due to the length.
 
A:
What airlines may charge for traveling with our 3 ski-snowboard case is going to vary by airline. However, the majority of airlines, if not all of them, waive the size restriction with length, width and height -- typically airlines do this with sporting goods that passengers are traveling with. So, most airlines will not charge due to the length of the case. But, as you mentioned, you will need to keep the total weight of the case below 50 pounds to avoid fees, and we would strongly suggest you check on the airline's website that you are planning to fly with, to make absolute certain.
