Welcome to ThinkVail – we hope you find this article about double ski boot bags helpful.
A good pair of comfortable ski boots that are the right size, shape and flex with the important features you desire is key to performance and fun on the slopes, and are by far, the hardest thing to replace. This is why when many people travel they may rent other equipment but they always bring their own ski boots especially if they are custom-molded.
But ski boots are awkward and clunky to travel with and juggling all the bags you need for a ski trip can be overwhelming. Anytime you can consolidate gear, it’s a clear victory. So, in the spirit of consolidation, here are 8 high-quality ski boot bags that can hold up to two pair of boots so you don’t have to grapple with so many individual bags.
Whether you are looking for a boot bag for air travel, road trips, to carry your gear from the parking lot to the ski lodge or to store items in the off-season, you will find these bags indispensable.
Important Boot Bag Features
Most single ski boot bags are approximately 50 liters in size, if you want to fit in another pair of boots you must go for a larger volume bag. Larger size bags generally allow you to store one pair of boots in the dedicated side boot pockets and an additional pair of boots in a larger-sized main compartment. Most double ski boot bags, will by their nature be too big to use as a carry-on, but confirm with your airline.
If you are searching for a ski bag to hold two pair of boots, most of the storage space will be used by the boots so additional accessory pockets allows you to store additional gear like gloves, goggles and a ski pass. Additional bungee straps or clips allows you to hold a helmet or other items in place.
Combine with a Ski Bag
Many airlines’ ski & snowboard baggage policies consider a ski or snowboard bag AND a boot bag as one checked bag. Some manufacturers offer ski bags and boot bags that easily attach so they become one bag for easy and safe transport on airplanes with little chance of losing one bag or the other while traveling.
Ski boot bags regularly take a beating. They hold heavy, bulky ski boots and must protect them in the process. The material must be strong and durable but it also must be lightweight. Look for a bag made of at least 600 Denier polyester or other durable materisl. Padding protects your equipment from spills, dirt, scratches, gouges, drops, breakage and jolts when traveling by air, car or rail.
Drainage grommets and vents allow for snow melt and water to drain from the bag and allow for airflow so items inside don’t get stinky or mildew. Keep in mind that the central compartment where most secondary ski boots will be stored does not generally have drain holes.
Straps & Handles
Ski bags are heavy, bulky and awkward to transport so having a variety of padded straps makes carrying bags so much easier. Bags with adjustable should straps, top carry handles and backpack straps are very versatile.
This is important if you find yourself outside a lot changing from ski boots to regular shoes and want a dry, clean place to set your foot instead of in the snow or mud.
