        Overall

        travel with all you ski equipment in one bag, neat and tidy! I can sleep in it when I need a bed it is that big.

        Performance

        All I ever dreamed about in a ski bag, as well as tones more than I ever thought was possible.

        Design

        Performs beautiful while pulling, dragging, carrying and anything else I have or ever will put it through.6 carrying handles surround the bag, these handles are extremely strong, as well as a main carry strap that Velcro's together at the center of the bag. all handles and straps feel sturdy and fit well in my hand.wheels are strong, and have traction, unlike some of the roller blade wheeled ski bags I have used.the bag is padded nicely and so far my skis have remained in perfect condition,the main compartment can easily accommodate 2 fat pairs of skis with 2 sets of poles, easily and secure enough that airport staff cannot shift the skis around.the other 4 compartments are nice and neatly built on the inside of the bag making it harder for the outside to be destroyed and the padding to protect all my ski gear. I can easily fit all of my ski gear in this bag including boots, goggles, helmet, toques, gloves, locks, poles, skis, outer wear, base layers, shoes, hoodies, and anything else I might use while skiing.

        Value

        easiest and most worry and hassle free way for me to travel with my skis, definitely a good price for protecting and transporting all my ski equipment.

        Overall

        This bag doubles as my winter home, and home sweet home it is.

        Performance

        This bag has more wonderful features than a Vivid girl, and similar ones too, such as easily stretchable compartments, multiple straps, heavy duty zippers, and it doesn't weigh a ton...which helps minimize the chances of you having to pay astronomical charges for overweight bags at the airport.

        With the amount of traveling I did last year, I was beyond stoked with how well it held up. Because of that, I highly recommend this bag to anyone who's going out on the road with their skis for more than just a weekend trip or two.

        Design

        Of all the ski bags I've ever had, the design on this bag is by far the best I've seen, and it really makes it what it is.

        I hated (almost as much as I hate mayonnaise) the fact that
        in previous ski bags I've owned the boots compartments were on the outside, as I found it
        more difficult to pack the main compartment and zip it up as result of the boots sinking down and interfering with the placement of the skis (especially if you're taking two
        pairs).

        But with Armada's Anchorage Ski Bag, in addition to the stellar main compartment, which is big enough to pack two pairs of skis and a host of outerwear, hoodies, shoes and other necessities for me while I'm on the road, on the inside of the main compartment is four additional pockets (see pic 2) in which I can easily store my boots, goggles, toques, bandanas, headphones, gloves, socks and base layers. Once packed, it then nicely folds over the main compartment making packing and my life that much easier, leaving me more time to focus on the more important aspects of traveling, like how to convince the girl sitting next to me on the airplane to 'join' me in the bathroom.

        In addition to that portion of the design that differs from most other ski bags bags out there, the Anchorage has a whopping 5 straps. The standard top strap which was smooth on the hands as I dragged it through airports all over the world, plus four additional ones on the sides that made it a breeze for a muscleless wimp like me to lift it through narrow train doors in Europe while Germans screamed at me, and into the back of pick-up trucks for backcountry trips in BC while grizzly bears chased me.

        Value

        Take it from me...buy this bag if you're going to be traveling a lot. Between December and July I was home a grand total of 7 weeks and was basically living out of this bag at all times in between, and it served me well. So if that doesn't prove just how badass of a ski bag this is, I don't know what will.
