When heading out on a ski vacation it's best to have a good bag to carry all your skiing accessories. For these occasions there is the Transpack XT1. Made with a tough water resistant polyester, this boot bag was designed with two side pockets specifically for your boots and a large water resistant central compartment that will hold a helmet, gear, even an extra pair of boots if there are two of you. This Isosceles Storage System creates a natural, comfortable weight diversion so that you're not carrying all the weight on your back. The boot pockets are outfitted with drainage grommets which allows for the evaporation of water and moisture and there are two additional zipper mesh pockets on the exterior for more storage space. Inside the bag there's a zippered padded pocket to hold your personal items. The shoulder straps are neoprene padded and the back is padded with a closed cell foam for a comfortable fit when you carry the bag through the airport or from your car to the mountain. Well-constructed and easy to clean, the Transpack XT1 is an excellent choice for the winter season.

Bag survived a beating from airline baggage handling on first trip. Largest bag I could find on the market...my size 15 boots fit in the side pockets (albeit snuggly). Only downside is large boots constrict size of center compartment but still enough room for a helmet. Backpack straps and extra zip up pockets are handy. Tough to beat for the price.
If all you want to do is store your boots, this is a good bag. Unfortunately everyone needs to store their helmet and googles as well. The center of the bag doesn't have enough room to easily get a helmet in and out. I bought two for Christmas, one for each son, and neither one likes the bag. Again, with boots in the bag it is very difficult to maneuver the helmet in and out.
My wife (XTW) and I (XT1) used to hold boots, helmet, gloves, neck gator, base layers, ski pants with room to spare. Fit everything we needed except the skis! Took as carry on on Southwest. Fit in overhead compartment easily. Comfortable. Only improvement would be zipper on top compartment to make it more secure if checked at airport, as we did on our way home with no issues.
Recently took a trip via air, we all know how hard it is to pack in the winter. My boot bag held boots, helmet,goggles gloves and 2 ski jackets! So much room and so easy to carry. Love, love love this bag!
great bag, fits all my ski gear. Has made traveling back and forth to the slopes very easy. boots fit perfect in side pockets and large center pocket has more then enough room to fit the rest of my gear.
I purchased this bag two years ago after getting tired of trying to balance all my gear on trips to and from the car. Turned out to be the best investment ever. Bag holds boots easily plus goggles, gloves and everything else I need. Has withstood all the abuse without falling apart. Two straps makes it easy to put on and off and cary with minimal effort.
I bought this bag for my son and my back. He is the skier and he has picky taste(mom side)the bag was a gift and it got a "Awesome" upon opening. The bag has performed as advertised and it has eliminated a trip in the loading phase as well as keeping things all in a tidy compact carrier. The product has held up well to teenage usage not easy to do but always appreciated.
The bag gets a "thumbs up."
Store everything in one place. Much easier to get from car to hill than my old bag which was a single shoulder strap. It kept falling off shoulder. Now i can carry my stuff plus help my 6 year old with his. Make everybody happier
A:Yes, this bag is designed specifically to hold boots as well as a helmet and other gear, now I can't say for certain this will hold your gear if you have a size 13 boot and a XXXL helmet but it should be able to fit nearly all combinations. The isosceles storage system holds the boots on the side of the bag in two separate compartments leaving the middle compartment open to hold the helmet, gloves, goggles and more.

Q: Will this bag hold a US size 13 men's boots? I see the statement of size 31 and I am trying to clarify.
