The 7 Best Ski & Snowboard Boot Bags of 2020-2021

We’ve all seen that guy struggling through the ski resort parking lot with an armful of ski gear splayed out randomly. And most of us have been there too, trying to juggle skis and poles while your boots swing and smack your shins and your helmet tries to skitter off into a plow pile. It can be pretty challenging to get all of your gear from point A to point B without an extra set of arms. It’s unwieldy, heavy, and often cold and wet. Ski boot bags are designed to take the hassle out of transporting your gear. They keep your boots warm and dry and have pockets for other gear like your helmet, goggles, and gloves. A good boot bag doesn’t just make it easier to move your gear around, it helps you stay organized, and keeps you from forgetting anything important.

So stop swearing at your gear as you try to get it all from the parking lot to the resort lodge. Stop worrying about getting your boots wet and forgetting your helmet. Grab a boot bag, and get organized. You’ll provide less comic relief in the parking lot, but your ski days will start on the right foot. Here are the best ski and snowboard boot bags of the season.


Dakine Boot Pack 50L

Best 2020-2021 ski & snowboard boot bags
 
 

Dakine knows gear bags, they’ve built their reputation on it, and the Boot Pack 50L is no exception. Whether you snowboard or ski, this bag makes it easy to transport all your gear and keep organized. At the heart of the Boot Pack is a tarp lined boot pocket. It’s waterproof, so even if you throw your boots in there with snow still on them, it won’t soak your other gear. And it won’t let that ski boot stank pervade your face mask or any other gear in the bag. It’s also got a separate helmet and goggle pocket, so you don’t have to juggle them, or accidentally forget your spare storm lenses. Finally, there's another gear pocket on the front that’s perfect for smaller accessories like an extra face mask and gloves.

The Boot Pack has the capacity to work as a mobile base camp, drop it in the lodge, gear up, and return to swap goggle lenses, put on dry socks, or grab lunch. And it’s easy to transport thanks to Dakine’s padded backpack system built in. So load up the Boot Pack and rest easy knowing you’ll have all your gear handy at the hill.

evo Boot Pack

Best 2020-2021 ski & snowboard boot bags
 
 

evo’s Boot Pack can be summed up in one phrase: “detail-oriented”. It’s not vying to be the biggest pack on this list, instead, it’s one of the most well-thought-out. It’s packed with small features that really set it apart. The shell of the pack is made with a water-repellent TPU material so your boots will stay dry even if you leave the pack out in the snow. Inside it’s got a waterproof (and smell proof) boot pocket, a front accessory pocket, and a top helmet and goggles pocket. It’s also got two stuff pockets on the outside, perfect for a thermos, extra layer, or water bottle.

But the Boot Pack’s real magic reveals itself when it’s time to change into your ski or snowboard boots. Instead of trying to cram into your boots in a cramped car, or dancing around a wet parking lot in one foot, just fold out the built-in changing mat from the back of the Boot Pack and change in comfort. It protects your bare feet from any moisture and wetness in the parking lot and ensures you start the day with warm dry feet. And of course, the Boot Pack is easy to transport with its padded straps. So if you’re the sort of person who appreciates great design and useful details, give the Boot Pack a try.
