I have a snowboard (Borton TWC Standard 12-13) 157 cm. I want to buy Wheelie Gig Bag (http://www.burton.com/default/wheelie-gig-bag/F14-10994100.html?cgid=mens-board-bags). This bag is available in sizes: 146 152 156 162 166. There is no 157 size.

What size should I take and why?

  • Not to turn you away from here, there's definitely going to be someone that can provide you with advice. But, as a heads up, most outdoors/skiing, snowboarding shops employees are pretty well trained, and could also give you some good hints :-)

    Welcome to Sports SE. This question seems to represent a shopping recommendation. Not knowing much about snowboarding, would a bag bigger than your snowboard (ie, 162cm) suffice, or does it have to be the same length? I believe your question asks this, in part, but I am not sure.

You should go with the 162 size if you feel that you are done growing and won't need a bigger snowboard anytime soon. That way you won't have to buy a new bag if you outgrow your snowboard.


I'd go with the biggest one you can find so you can jam a ton of extra stuff in there, which winds up being incredibly helpful come travel-time.

Plus, I've stitched a second grab handle onto the bottom of some of my wheelie bags, right at the level where my board would end inside of the bag. That lets me roll up the extra length if I don't need it and still have a smaller wheelie.
