Ray Stokes, looked at a 3-event bag and wondered why they needed to be so large. The length is obvious, but the width and bulk was not so. Taking width out of the bag removed any unnecessary bulk. Accompanied by the internal straps, the bag is incredibly stable.
Skis don’t float around and traveling abroad is much more enjoyable. The narrower bag still allows for plenty of room for all 3 events. A pair of jump skis, slalom ski, and even a pair of trick skis can easily fit inside.
Heavy Duty wheels will take on all terrain, so no matter which site you are at this bag will still be easy to wheel around. Inclimate weather is also an issue which is why the bags are fully waterproof and UV protected.
Zips get ripped apart, the stokes bags zip has an enclosed top, designed to protect the zip from damage.
Off to euros for the team event. Hopefully the water will keep going down today #stokesskis
