As a skier, it’s hard to travel light. Not only do I need to pack the gear essentials. But I’m a girl and I need clothing options for when I go out to the discotheques in Verbier. So that’s why I use the Dakine Concourse Double Ski Bag. This thing is so big it fits everything I need for any trip: my skis, backcountry setup, curling iron, helmet, jackets, little black dress—you know, the things you can’t leave home without.

Dakine offers this ski bag in two sizes, at 185 and 200 centimeters in length. It definitely fits two pairs of skis. The polyester fabric is thick and durable, and I trust it to carry a weighted load. Unzip the bag and you’ll find three insulated pockets and dividers so you can keep your skis and poles organized with your outerwear and clothes. With urethane wheels and handles on each end, plus two straps that fit perfectly over a shoulder, there are a lot of options for carrying it. And that flexibility is nice, especially if you’re navigating a tight aisle on a European train or lugging it to the international terminal on the other side of the airport.

The only thing is that it’s easy to put too much in this bag and go over airplane weight limits. I usually carry my ski boots on, not only to save weight, but if your bag gets lost in transit, ski boots are the thing you’ll miss most.

Here’s the bottom line: The Dakine Concourse Double is like Mary Poppins’ bottomless carpetbag. Seriously, you can fit an intern inside it.

    I used this thing (200cm) on last winter’s trip. It does fit a ton, including two sets of skis and boots, two helmets, and a bunch of gear, but I had the problem of going over the weight limit, also it gets a bit unmanageable. It is huge. A bit cumbersome in my opinion for navigating public transit, airports, shuttles, etc…it barely fits some places.
