The only way to keep your board safe and protected in between trips is with a snowboard gear bag. Without a protective pack, you essentially keep your board exposed to the elements. Snowboard bags come in different colors, patterns and styles, and it is easy to find one that fits your own personal sense of style. A gear pack allows you to carry more than just your board.
Snowboard bags should be large and have enough space for your board, boots, bindings, goggles, clothing and anything else you want to take with you. Some snowboard packs even have extra pockets on the top and sides. You can use these pockets for extra gear like gloves, an extra scarf, or as a place to store your wallet or money during your next run.
What do you usually do with your board when you come home? If you are like some riders, you simply toss your board in the garage or a corner of your room until you head off on your next adventure. Investing in an inexpensive snowboard bag allows you to keep your board stored in a place where it won't accidentally get chipped, dinged, exposed to weather, or damaged.
If you do not use a bag from one of the top manufacturers, then you are missing out on protecting your board and other gear. A bag costs a fraction of what you paid for your board, and increases your board’s lifetime. Nitro and Camp Seven are just a few of the designers creating new bags.
