The Ultimate 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 snowboard(s) and make sure they make it out to the mountain in the same working condition as they left your house - you need this ssnowboard 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.

If you have a lot of board 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 boards 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 boards are going to make it to my final destination in one piece with this Snowboard Travel Case. If you are like me and don't live by the mountains, you want to make the most of every trip, so why chance it with an inferior snowboard bag? Get this one!

The Series 3 Sportube was designed to hold two snowboards. Lay your boots tip to tail on the ends of the snowboard, lay the second snowboard on top, and slide the whole assembly into the internal tube section. Slide the external section over the other end and pull the tube firmly closed, and lock it into place with the case pin or a padlock, making sure to pass the pin or lock through both sections of the tube.
We loved this purchase. We were able to fit my kids snowboard boots and clothes for his trip to Colorado
AMAZING. Case fits 2 snowboards, detached bindings, and both boots (size 13 and size 9)! This was a total of 47 pounds which is acceptable with no extra charge on most airlines. 2 helmets also fit (one inside the other) but I chose to have those in my carryon. On the return flight, there were 2 others with snowboard cases, both soft cases and both with damaged equipment. My hard case had a small dent in the corner but had completely protected all of my things.
This is a high quality product. The Sportube is very durable and uses a TSA approved lock. It is easy to pack with a little practice. I especially like the way it extends or retracts to fit almost any size snowboard or skis.
We are going to go to Breckenridge this winter and needed a good travel case for our 2 boards. This fits the bill. It is sturdy and has room for 2 boards and boots. Just a little on the heavy side.
Our destination was Jackson Hole which required layover's at several airports. Did not encounter any problems with the airlines or TSA. Ski's and snowboard were well protected throughout the trip. Would recommend to anyone looking for protection without the hassle.
