Super good bag for the price

I purchased this bag because I go to Colorado at least once a year and Competitive Cyclist was running one heck of a deal on it at the time. I was a little intimidated because I had read stories where some people had trouble getting everything to fit in some bike bags. My first time (with instructions) I packed this thing in about a half hour. Super easy and everything fit great. When I was coming home I had to repack the bag in the dark with nothing but a bicycle light to help me see and again no problems. TSA opened it both times on my round trip and they didn't have any problems getting it back closed. Really good bag for the price. Haven't used any other bags so can't compare. The reason I only gave it 4 stars is because mine was missing the inflatable pads for the wheels. I contacted biknd and got no response. I've seen where other people have had good experiences with their customer service but me, not so much. I didn't bother contacting Competitive Cyclist to see if they could help because I just used some pool noodles and they worked like a charm. BTW, I have a 29" trail bike in a size large running 2.5 tires. no problems at all fitting.
Any idea if it would keep a bike safe being shipped via UPS? Looking to possibly ship a 29er Enduro and concerned the airbag might not be enough padding.
