Bought this bag as a gift. Checked it out prior to gifting. Def holds a lot of needed ski gear. Just not sure it would work as a carryon in plane overhead compartment for travel purposes…(I always take my boots as a carryon), so it was returned for a smaller boot bag. Also, I like the shoulder stripe design. Not a deal breaker, but nice to have. Other than those 2 issues, a great boot bag !
