Burton Wheelie Gig Bag 2014 - 2013 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton Wheelie Gig Bag is in the right price range for a travel far kind of bag and offers up pretty good protection.  It can carry a lot of boards and a lot of gear.

I’ve used this gig bag for a few years and I have 2 different sizes.  Tim uses one too when he comes out from Europe to the states.  I’ve carried about 8 boards in it without bindings and 3 boards with a fourth board that has bindings.  It can also carry 1 board with bindings, a 2nd or 3rd board, boots, a second pair of bindings and even some outerwear.  I’ve dropped the bag with the boards in it and not a single bit of damage.  It’s hard to say what bag is a favorite and what isn’t with so few out there but let’s just say that I choose to own this for long trips and when I use the airport.  I can carry my Departure Bag on my back and wheel this along the airport halls. I’d say my only complaint is I’d like to see the front of the bag be stiff like the tail so if you are carrying a shorter board than a 166 it doesn’t curve up and become more difficult to carry. Other than that I’m really happy with this bag and the sizing options they provide.

We have a 156 and a 166 Wheelie Gig as well as a 166 Wheelie Locker. These bags are absolutely awesome for travelling overseas. They use high quality materials and have great internal padding which keep your gear damage free on numerous trips from Australia to Japan. We strip our boards down and keep them individually bagged in layers inside the Gig for that extra added protection from those carrier behind the scenes handling mishaps. The Wheelie Locker is much thicker at 290mm as opposed to 210mm for the Wheelie Gig. We've had a large amount of boards, boots and ski's packed in the Wheelie Locker with absolutely no problems. The only problem the Wheelie Locker has is it's enormous ability to swallow so much of your gear that you have to keep an eye on you baggage weight in order to pass carrier check in maximums set for OHS reasons. That's why we now use 2 Wheelie Gigs and spread the weight evenly across. An essential bag for travelling overseas. A 5+ rating from us.
