Kulkea Makes Flying with Skis Easier.
Avid skier, traveler and journalist Laura Obermeyer put Kulkea’s Kantaja Double Roller ski bag to the test. Laura “had a preference of avoiding the hassle of hauling skis through airports but she gave the Kulkea Bag a shot.”
The skier-centric design and features of the Double Roller bag won over Obermeyer. “Kulkea was able to quickly change my mind, with attention to design and detail that ultimately won me over. The organization of the bag was immediately noticeable. It’s well thought out, offering space for two pairs of skis, as well as an extendable length system.”
Based on previous experiences of flying with inferior ski bags, Laura was ready to implement old methods when packing for ski travel; however, Kantaja changed that approach. “I was fully prepared to wrap clothing around my bindings for added padding, but sought no reason to after the fully padded interior proved its worth, even offering padding to separate the two pairs of skis.”
Kulkea’s fully padded roller bag also improved Laura’s packing habits and ultimately lightened her load. Obermeyer always flies with her photographic gear as carry-on luggage. However, when packing the Double Roller she found “the padding in this bag was sufficient enough for me to move some of that extra weight from my carry on into my ski bag, and be confident that even the heavy handling of baggage staff wouldn’t hurt my belongings.”
The super-durable all terrain wheels on the Double Roller ski bag impressed Laura and made traveling in different conditions easier. “They are larger than most suitcase wheels, and offer more tread, making stairs and snowy parking lots a breeze.”
Obermeyer emphasized that the design and features of the ski bag far exceed others. “The abundance of handles and the integrated “Isolated Compression System” made loading and carrying the bag itself far more comfortable than the bulky, ill-fitted ski bags I was used to using. This is the first ski bag that has eliminated the discomfort and awkwardness that are all too often dealt with hauling ski equipment.”
The Kantaja Double Roller ski bag is built to last. Obermeyer exclaimed that the water-resistant and super durable bag “held up beautifully in the hands of someone who tends to be hard on luggage. It’ll handle your two mile walk to the train station or your sprints through the DIA parking lot like a champ, allowing you to eventually get to the hill with a bit more ease.”
