Rated 5 out of 5Â by JH1613 Good Quality Product
Haven't had the opportunity to use yet but can see straight away the advantages of this ski bag over padded bags that i have used in the past
Bought this after possible damage to skis on last trip
The ability to lock and secure your skis is also a bonus. As is being able to wheel skis rather than lugging them around the airport
Am now considering a larger 2 or 3 ski sportube.
The staff and service from the Chiil Factore store was great and have been back many times

A good case that properly protects skis for carriage by air. For security, user should purchase a lock.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by sportubereviewer1 item was mislabelled
The sportube had a label affixed that stated 'Wheels, adjustable length, lockable, padded'. I took that to mean that it would have all of these features. It was however not padded and did not contain internal packing for added protection against attrition of skis in transit.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Birdnw56 Simple and effective - better than a cloth bag
Having invested in new skis this year I decided I needed something better than the usual padded cloth bag for my skis. I bought one of these and I don't regret it - although not the cheapest, I felt my skis and poles would arrive in good condition . One tip I would suggest is to use an old towel between the ski bindings to protect the bindings from scratching . I also found that using two webbing straps to hold the skis together made them easier to put into the tube and helped to hold the Poles in place also. The space between the skis allows for the packing of clothes. ski tuning kit etc.
Great product and they really do protect your skis ..

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Steed171 The 'Samsonite' equivalent for Skis
This product is for those who want to protect their skis, either from the rigorous attentions of baggage handlers or the ravages of a prolonged spell on the roof rack. It is solid enough to protect against both knocks and water and salt ingress when on the roof.
It is a very solid case that splits into two pieces to allow access for the skis, poles and other small items that can be fitted inside. It has good carrying handles which can double up as anchor points when strapping to the roof rack. as well as small wheels if you don't want to carry it.
Although it could be considered quite pricey compared to soft cases it is a cheaper option that a ski specific roofbox or the cost of danmaged equipemnt.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Ashers If you are going to lug skis then use this
This is a useful product which takes much of the hassle out of lugging skis in transit. A helpful set of wheels at the end makes it very helpful when changing trains of planes. The product is easy to put together, fits most skis and can be locked if desired. I found it much easier then a simple ski bag.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Michael A simple product
The Sportube is an effective way to carry skis without risking them being crushed. If you travel by plane or by train to a resort it gives you a bit more piece of mind. The tube is a little bit tight to fit the skis in, but my skis are quite wide and have touring bindings, so that possibly made a difference. I would say the only negative is it seems a little expensive for what is and something like a free padlock along with it would have been better.
