What is up NS!?! So here's the deal: I need a ski bag, and my skis are 181cm long. The thing is though, I don't know whether I need a padded bag, or just a sleeve. The padded bags are twice the price but do they make that much of a difference? I will be flying with the skis and going on a bus trip so would it be stupid to go for a unpadded bag, or does the padding not make that much of a difference?
I don't necessarily need wheels since I'll be packing the rest of my gear in my suitcase. I just need something to put my skis in so they don't get screwed up in transit.
So what would people recommend? Padded or unpadded? Any bags that are particularily good?
