        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 will help minimize
        the chances of you having to pay astronomical charges for overweight
        bags at the airport.

        With the amount of traveling I've done over the years, I've been beyond stoked with
        how well this bag has held up, and refuse to use any other. 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 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 muscle-less wimp like me to lift it
        through narrow train doors in Europe while Italians screamed at me (trust me, it's happened), and
        into the back of pick-up trucks for backcountry trips in BC while grizzly bears chased me (which hasn't actually happened, yet).

        Value

        Take it from me...buy this bag if you're going to be traveling a lot. Last winter I was home for only 10 weeks between the end of December and July 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.
