I was looking to get a bag that could fit two complete setups. You can definitely get two entire board setups (board, bindings & boots) to fit in there. So for those of you thinking you need a Burton Wheelie Locker or a Dakine High Roller, you definitely have enough space in this gig bag for both setups. You can either stack two boards and have the bindings separate or you can leave the bindings in and then do the sandwich method (with boots in between) for fitting both setups in.

Aside from that, you could maybe fit some baselayers, socks, gloves and pants in there (remember that you can stuff socks and gloves into your boots and bindings to save some space too) but there definitely wouldn't be anymore space for helmets.

Please be aware that it seems Burton does change up their models from year to year. I saw a Nov. 2012 review of this bag on youtube from Zappos. In the video it showed there was a separate detachable bag inside of the bag and on the outside of the bag were two straps to tighten/hold the contents of the bag in place. I can tell you that in this 2012/2013 model, there was NOT a detachable bag inside the bag and instead of the two straps on the outside, there was only one strap in the middle on the inside of the bag.

The bag is pretty sturdy; the handles and zippers (TSA lock friendly) are all solid. The inside is lined with tarp for your wet boards (I would still put a towel underneath the bottom of your board so that the edge won't wear and tear the bottom part of the tarp over time). The wheels are replaceable too if they get totally busted.

I've already used it on a couple of weekend and day trips and it definitely gets the job done if you're looking to put in two whole set ups and some other miscellaneous soft clothing but make sure you have a separate bag or duffel to hold your helmets and other clothing when traveling.

    Comments about Burton Wheelie Gig Snowboard Bag 2013:

    I decided to purchase this bag for a snowboard trip to Whistler and I can certainly say it's a must have! I was able to not only carry my board in it, but had so much room to add all my gear. It can get pretty heavy and the last thing I wanted was to break my back from carrying it! Thank God for the wheels! It made it so much easier to move, walking through the airport with just one hand! It's a little hard to maneuver because it's so long but other than that, it's great!!! I definitely would recommend it!

      A pretty sturdy bag, has an extra pocket on the front too. 152 cm is the board size recommendation - the bag is actually about 158 cm. Its big enough to hold multiple boards, or your other gear. Seems great for traveling.

        Comments about Burton Wheelie Gig Snowboard Bag 2013:

        So I actually don't use this for a snowboard, I use it for stilts, but it is a supremely awesome bag! I never worry about what the airlines are going to dish out because the padding is super plush. The wheels and handles make it convenient to drag around (and I'm pretty sure encourages the airline baggage crew to be nicer to it). The water resistant interior keeps the bag smelling fresh despite the funk I can throw in there after a gig. Finally it is super roomy. I could easily fit two boards with bindings plus boots in it, or two pairs of stilts and all my gear for a weeks worth of performances. Oh yea, the interior board strap keeps the bag from being droopy when wheeling it around. I would totally recommend this bag, I'm looking at one for my snowboards too.

          Comments about Burton Wheelie Gig Snowboard Bag 2013:

          I love this bag! It's really roomy- I fit my snowboard with binding attached, snowboard boots, ski boots, all of my winter outfits & my helmet in the main compartment! All of my accessories (goggles, gloves, masks, wax, tools) fit in the accessories compartment in the front. It's really heavy now but the wheels make it easy to move around. I wanted to fit my skis in there as well, but it wasn't long enough so I had to buy a separate ski bag.

                I haven't really had a chance to use the product as snowboarding season has come to and end. But I received exactly what was expected and can't wait to hit the slopes in the winter with my new board in this bag.

                  This bag is great for any boarding occasion! Travel on flights or just a quick run to the slopes. It has enough space to store 2 boards, boots and gear. I have the hot bandana color and am obsessed with it! Highly recommend this product and you can't beat the price from EVO!

                      I haven't gotten it wet yet, thus not marking waterproof, but this bag is great. Good capacity, wheels are nice, good strap. The only thing I might change is to have the wheels be all-direction wheels like some suitcases. I love this bag!

                        Saw the bag on evo, saw the bag cheaper on another site. One email later EVO gave me same price + another 5% off!

                        152 Bag arrived at door and I got to it. Threw in: 147 & 148 boards, pair of bindings still mounted on one board, helmet, outerwear jacket and pants, boots, goggles, snacks (because who doesn't eat when riding the park lift!?), 2 hoodies, 4 pairs of socks, 2 long underwear, facemasks, and some other random things. Could've packed a few more clothing pieces if I wanted to since it weighed in at 45lbs. Threw regular clothes in a carry on and boned out.

                        Took the package to the airport, few hours later landed in Colorado. Easily spotted my bag at pick up because I didn't get black like all the other kids. Rolled that baby out to the car and had an awesome week living out of it.

                        Use included dragging bag up and down stairs. Dropping it around the airport. Wheels are smooth, bag is spacious, it protects your ish, get it. 152 could've fitted 153 board, I don't like excess so I didn't opt for the 156 bag.

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        Evo gave me a big box which had more than enough room and padding for the bag. Arrived in a timely manner.

                            This snowboard bag is nicely padded and provides good protection for your board. The wheels work very well, which is important if you load it up with additional equipment and don't want to carry it on your shoulders. It was large enough for all my equipment and clothing for a one-week trip out west, so that I only needed a small day-pack as a carry on.

                                  the last bag don't always ran in his wheels because was bended when was heavy, but this new burton wheelie it's so solid in the midle and runs perfect, looks really cool as well.

                                    From what I saw at this price point, you can either have a shoulder strap or boot pouches. I elected for shoulder strap and am glad I did. The wheels are great for hotels and airports, but there are several times during a trip where you need to pick your bag up. Having a shoulder strap for those moments was clutch.

                                    I've only used it for one trip so far, but it endured airports, cars and parking lots without any wear and kept my gear safe as well.

                                    The 162cm comfortably fit my board (156cm) and all other equipment. I would definitely recommend going with a size a few cm longer than your board.

                                          This is by far the best snowboard travel bag. I've had different brands, and my friends have different bags, and we all agree this is the best one. It is a little expensive but if you purchase it at the right time you can get it at 30% off. Totally worth the retail price too.

                                              This bag is extremely useful: looks awesome, very easy to roll around, and fits everything! I bought a 156 to fit a 156cm board, 153cm board, 2 bindings, 2 pants, and helmet/goggles/socks. I even fit a small hydration pack as well. My friend also tried his 157cm board and it fit with a little more room (think it fits 158cm too!).

                                              Took it to Utah and Vermont so far (wish I had it with me in CO!) and it it's still holding up well after abusing it. LOVE THIS BAG! GET IT.

                                                    The bag is pretty decent, for its price I would not complain. Just make sure you buy the right size bag for your board, if its too big, the bag gets all crinkly when you pull it.

                                                      I went for the 162 instead of the 156 as my board is a 158 and I figured too much room would be better than too little. I'm glad I went for the slightly larger size. I'm able to fit a plethora of gear in this bag, along with all my street clothes for a 4 day trip.

                                                      Only con is that the shoulder strap makes carrying the bag a little awkward but that hardly matters since you'll be pulling it around on it's wheels or carrying it by the handle strap 99% of the time anyway.

                                                      Great back. Very high quality. Not cheap but worth it.
