When you invest in a great pair of skis, you want to protect your investment. Thus, a high-quality ski bag is essential for any owner of skis. There are a plethora of ski bags on the market, some of which are better and more affordable than others. The types made in 2011 alone are nearly endless, with all sorts of specifications and features. The type of ski bag you choose will depend on your style and budget, but the most important aspect of purchasing a ski bag is obviously finding the correct size for your skis. To help you in your search for a quality ski bag, read below for information on a couple of the best ski bags available in 2011.
Athalon Marker Padded Double Wheeled 2011 Ski Bag
One of the biggest decisions you will have to make when purchasing a ski bag is whether you want it to have wheels. A ski bag with wheels is obviously far easier to transport, but it will also usually be more expensive than its non-wheeled counterpart. This Athalon ski bag has two sets of wheels, making transportation a breeze. Available in orange or black, the Athalon Marker Padded Double Wheeled 2011 Ski Bag is capable of holding up to two pairs of skis, meaning you and your skiing partner could potentially share it.
Made from high-quality, waterproof nylon, the ski bag has a fully padded interior to make sure your skis never scratch while on the move. For advanced skiers, keeping skis scratch-free is a must. The bag's in-line skate wheels allow for a smooth ride, while the adjustable cinches and nylon zippers allow you to store and secure your skis in a hurry. The bag's top handle allows to you to easily carry or pull it as you please. The Athalon Marker Padded Double Wheeled 2011 Ski Bag retails for $150.
If you do not ski that frequently or simply want to allocate the majority of your funds into your skis as opposed to the bag, you should opt for a non-wheeled variety. This Salomon Ski Bag is non-wheeled and has enough room to store one pair of skis. While it does not possess all of the bells and whistles of the Athalon Marker Padded Double Wheeled 2011 Ski Bag, the Salomon One Pair Expandable 2011 Ski Bag will still keep your skis safe and sound as you travel.
The ski bag is expandable, holding skis anywhere from 165 to 185 centimeters. For those who have multiple skis of varying sizes but transport just a single pair at a time, this ski bag can be very accommodating. The expanding trait of the Salomon One Pair Expandable 2011 Ski Bag also makes it a great gift, as it will fit almost all ski sizes. The bag has a reinforced, waterproof compartment to keep your skis safe, as well as a padded shoulder strap. The latter characteristic is important for a non-wheeled ski bag. Simply load your skis into the bag, strap it on, and go. The Salomon One Pair Expandable 2011 Ski Bag runs for only $50.
