The snowboarding season has just kicked off, and last week I was lucky enough to go on a last minute snowboarding trip to Switzerland. Before I left the nice people over at Thule, sent me the 56 Liter Rolling Duffel to test out.
The bag is part of the Thule Crossover Collection, which has been specifically designed for boarders and skiers. The Swedish company Thule, is the world leader in travel racking systems. The Crossover Collection marks there entry into luggage, and they have done a fabulous job.
I was very impressed with the number of highly functional features in the Crossover collection, such as the heat-molded, crush-proof SafeZone for goggles or other fragile gear, the durable molded exoskeleton exterior, and the separate spaces for helmets, gloves, clothing, ski boots, footwear, etc.
The bag also has oversized wheels for smooth mobility, and aluminum telescoping handles. Overall I found the Crossover collection to be very well thought out and perfect for transporting your equipment securely, safely and of course in style.
Although the duffel is probably a bit to large to take as carry on, I was able to sneak it on to my flight. However, if you don’t want to take your chances, they do have a rolling carry on bag as well.
The 56 Liter Rolling Duffel is available for $289.99. To check out the rest of the line go here
