Buyer’s guide for a ski bag
In the resort, there are two kinds of skiers, those who leave their skis in the car or make a mess in the streets carrying poles in a hand, a ski on a shoulder and the other ski in between, and the smarter ones who have their ski bags ready for making their lives easy. If you want to make sure your equipment doesn’t bother you this winter, get yourself a ski bag adapted to your skis and that’ll be the ned of your problems!

How to choose the right ski bag?
The first thing you need to consider is the length of your skis. Better buy a bag that is slightly longer than them than slightly shorter or you will regret it. Then, it depends on what your expectations are really. If you want a simple bag that will protect your skis during summer and make the carrying easier, you can stick with entry-of-range bags. They’re cheap and they do the job. You can even put your poles in. This shouldn’t cost you more than £20. However, if you’re looking for something that’s more comfortable to carry, padded here and there, with a more durable construction and a better finish, then you’ll need to pick a bag in the middle range. These bags offer more advanced features and are more functional. You get more padding, various carry handles, stronger fabrics, bigger storage room, etc. If you travel regularly, this kind of bag is a good choice as it will protect your skis more efficiently during transit. You’ll also find more pockets for your tools and apparel. And finally, on the top shelf, you get bags with wheels, ideal if you travel every week or if you hate carrying stuff.
Are there bags in which I can put more than one pair of skis?
Yes there are. Ideal for core skiers who own several pairs for the different conditions you can encounter in the mountain, or for parents who want to take their kid skis with their own. Some bags can carry up to 3 pairs of skis or a combo of skis and snowboards with the boots that come with. The Rossignol Hero Skibag for instance or the Dynastar Power Ski Bag can do that. Comfortable, functional, big, great!
