Jet off to the white room.
You're headed overseas to see for yourself if that legendary, snorkel-worthy Japan powder is really all it's cracked up to be. Toss your pow sticks in your padded Rossignol Soul Short Haul Wheel Ski Bag and keep some piece of mind knowing they'll be protected during a tumultuous ride across the Pacific. The wheels make it easy to navigate the airport quickly and efficiently when you're running late for your flight, and the nylon compression straps and handles give you a few different carrying options.
- A heavy-duty ski bag for your next powder hunting vacation
- 600D polyester ripstop is super durable
- Wheels help you navigate the airport quickly
- Compression straps and handles offer multiple carrying options
- Fits one pair of alpine skis or three pairs of Nordic skis
- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I'm posting this review before actually traveling with the bag because of a sizing thing I think people should know. The bag is literally 190 cm long...it is not designed to fit 190 cm skis. I put in some 182 Dynafit Hokkaidos and some 179 K2 Seths and they are both tight fits. There might be 1-3 cm to play with, but, because of the zippers, I think you would have a really hard, if not impossible, time getting longer skis in there. My skis definitely fit, but they don't just slide right in - I have to work the angles. The picture shows the Dynafits in head-to-toe style and it's not super obvious, but they are basically touching the ends. The bag does have enough space to put boots in if you put the skis in base down, side by side as pictured. The bag closes easily in this configuration. I also tried with the Seths which have Marker Schizos so there is in fact space even with bindings. For reference, boots are 27.5 Dyanfit Titans.
Other than that the bag feels burly, isn't too heavy, and seems to roll around nicely. The bottom is made of 3 hard plastic panels, so you can only fold it to 1/3 of its overall length with the panels in. The panels are not removable.
