2013/14 Snowboard Travel Bag Trend Report & Preview

Although it may not seem like it, there is a method to sifting through the incredible array of new gear that emerges every winter at SIA.  For Travel Bags, we caught up with 10 different brands to find out what is going into the perfect bag for your next shred mission.  Here’s what they had to say:

1. A Cache of Compartments

Coffin-like board bags are being replaced with designs built around carefully considered compartments.  These pockets aim to keep things organized and protected, while also allowing wet gear a chance to breathe.

2. Emphasizing the Overhead

When it comes to luggage and travel packs, riders are demanding products that fit in the overhead compartment.  Yet many of these bags are capable of expanding their volume once the plane lands.  Simply put, dimensions dictate form and function.
