    Anyone have the backcountry.com house brand double ski roller bag?

    I need a replacement ski bag, and there are a bunch of Backcountry.com's house brand double roller bags at geartrade. Can't find much about them online.

    Anyone here have one? Like, dislike?

    it the bag is made by the same manufacturers behind Stoic, I'd tread carefully.. My few stoic clothing items, while I like the style, pull threads while sitting idle in the drawer.

    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....

    I'm in Reno. There's a couple Dakine bags on geartrade too - might grab a boundary or fall line. Had an old concourse, but an airline destroyed it last year, and apparently the boundary is the closest replacement now.

    Cool shipping sucks on these. I liked fall line. Good padding and like 4 lbs lighter than my old concourse.

    Be aware the new Dakine bag may come without internal tie down straps like the old Double Concourse had. That was my experience.

    I have the EVO branded double ski bag and it's pretty great. Only problem is it's popular so you need to make sure it looks distinctive with stickers or something to avoid mixups at the airport, which happened to me recently in SLC.

    I bought the "195cm" Evo bag last spring - the nice one, with hard shell ends on the bottom half. It couldn't fit 192cm skis straight in, which I didn't discover until I tried loading skis into it late in 2019. Luckily Evo has a 365 day return policy, so I shipped it back.

    I think I'll grab a cheap 190cm fall line Dakine. There doesn't seem to be that much difference between it and the boundary, as far as features I care about: same fabric, same zippers, same wheels, same way of loading skis. I don't care about the boot bag in the boundary.

    After years of lugging homemade ski bags around, I finally sprang for the DPS Dentists Roller Speciale Bag.
    I have 200 cm skis.
    They just barely fit.
    Aside from that, it's a sweet rig.

    I bought a 190cm Fall Line from Geartrade -- they have another for about the same price ($56 shipped):

    I have an old PM Gear double ski bag with wheels if you change your mind about the Dakine bag. Very good condition, used a few times for air travel. Easily fits 200cm length skis, interior and exterior compression straps. HuDge

    I received the used Dakine from Geartrade today. A few scuffs on the plastic scrape runners on the bottom, otherwise like new.

    For anyone considering the 190cm Fall Line bag, it fits some 192cm DPS RPC115 just fine. And the "tandoori spice" color is much darker and more red than in the photos online.
