SKBoot Bag Reviews
Reviews and Mentions
After being involved in the Australian snow sports industry for over 30 years in both retail and with Salomon, you can imagine the amount of boot bags I have seen! The SKBoot Bag is the most innovative I have ever encountered. It is well thought out, well made and will give you years of service. Buy one!

Skboot makes a rolling boot bag which carries boots, helmet, mittens and more and can easily be rolled by children. The Skboot is more of a splurge, but is well-made and sturdy. It is perfect for people who don’t like to carry heavy gear on their backs.

“SKBoot short for the best Ski Boot Bag bar none!
This boot bag is no ordinary ski/board boot bag; it’s stylish and well crafted and is built to last and withstand the elements of the alpine environment as well as regular airline travel. The bag is also the perfect corporate travel companion midweek before it turns back into the alpine travel essential.
There are stacks of compartments for boots, goggles, gloves, and electronics. There is a separate compartment for your small laptop, Net book or iPad, which means that everything fits in one handy place. There is even a solid telescopic handle and super sturdy wheels complete with ball bearings.
If you are a single person skiing for the day or overnight it would be all you need to take. There is a removable waterproof carry bag that unfolds from deep within to isolate your wet gear after a day on the slopes, or you could use it to carry alpine supplies back to the lodge.
The bags aren’t cheap, the one I reviewed was the large model and has a RRP of $199.00 which is no more expensive than a quality piece of carry on luggage but this turns into a weekend alpine essential.”

“One bag to rule them all.
The finest bag on the slopes, Skboot turns lugging bulky, backbreaking ski boots (and the rest of your gear) into an almost elegant task. Every detail has been thought through: boots, goggles, electronics, extra clothes,
and even a computer fit into specialized compartments.
Its built-to-last chassis combines with a solid telescopic handle and super sturdy wheels to make a lasting, winter-ready product. And for a nice touch it fits into a plane’s overhead compartment.“

Okay, I admit it, I am a SNOB when it comes to ski clothes and equipment. I will not buy cheap or UGLY stuff when I need new gear. My favorite option is to buy high-end stuff when it is on sale or better yet, off-season.
This bag was not cheap at $150, but it blows any other boot bag out of the snow! My large 28.5 boots fit into it well, leaving enough room for my beloved Oakley goggles and extra lenses. Even my helmet can fit on top. I HATE wearing my helmet, but while racing it is mandatory, so it is nice to have it fit in the bag. The bag oozes European style and does not look like any other bag out there, especially a boarder’s bag (thank God!)

“Gadgets” always seems to address a fade device –
The SkBoot ski boot bag is not a gadget, but a practical everyday item. Obviously, for your ski boots but a great piece of day or overnight luggage.
FYI – I don’t work for the company. I am a boot fitter who believes in proper handling of the most important piece of ski equipment.

I think you should advertise more on the ice skating market as there are not many suitable bags to choose. As you can see my daughter is not very tall (only 8 years old) and she liked to carry the skate bag herself which made the shoulders not balance, that’s why I wanted something with wheels. The most popular one will be “xxxx” which I hate, I think it is very ugly to carry a metal box around and not convenience on the plane. There is a nice one with “xxxx” but nobody has the stock in U.S.A. (it takes 4 weeks delivery), I told “xxxx” in Canada their distributor in Hong Kong do not have a good range to choose……, they did not answer. Then I moved my research from “ice skate bag” to “ski bag” ; the ones with xxxx and xxxxr wheeling are close but their trapezoid shape is not ideal for me plus the size of 17 inches (at least).
Luckily I found you and with your excellent service I have the bag now. Honestly I think I have browsed over hundred website and my husband thought I was going crazy. I never thought it would be that difficult, then I understand why you have to design the bag yourself, maybe 1 day I would design a ice skating bag too. [Other company names have been deleted and replaced with xxxx]
Thank you for your response to my letter. My son is a skater since 2005 and I’m tired of wearing his skates on my shoulders. I bought a bag by E…a (name omitted by us) but this bag is uncomfortable. I thought that the triangular shape of the bag would be ideal for figure skates. I thought: “When will someone decide to put the triangle bag on wheels?” And I found your SkBoot bag. At last – your SkBoot bag is much more comfortable. I’ll ask my girlfriends (mom skaters) on the ice, as I am sure they will also want to buy this bag and then I will write to you.
I purchased the SKBoot for my daughter who carries one pair of inline speed skates and one pair of recreational inline skates. It fits perfectly including her helmet and my little cushion. My daughter wanted have a red colour, but the inline speed skates has longer frame.
Your advertisement from YouTube video really convinced me. I’m really happy with the design and quality. Hope other people use this bag for roller skates, ice skates and inline skates.
Thank you for a pleasant transaction with you.

John is thrilled with his bag! No problems from Sydney to Vancouver with Air Canada the bag easily fitted into the overhead locker on its side. When we flew Vancouver to Kelowna on a jet (which is really an internal flight) it wouldn’t fit into the overhead locker but no problem the hostess put the bag into another storage spot. Great bag, thank you.

I love the bag it’s a so cool!! I will pass the word around about the great SKboot bag,can’t wait to use it at the end of this month!!
Just started skiing this morning in Japan. Boot bags worked a treat!Fiona Balfour
I bought a Skboot for my wife last year for Christmas and she absolutely LOVES IT! It is a very functional bag and is also a great looking piece of luggage when heading to and from the airport. The removable sack (with handles) inside the Skboot bag makes it very easy to carry boots if you are heading to the slopes and then easily tucks away in a locker in the event you don’t want to take the entire rolling Skboot bag into the lodge. I highly recommend the Skboot as a Christmas gift! The construction of the bag is very sturdy as well and will hold up for a very long time. My wife likes the attractive look of the bag and I’ve been complimented many times over for having purchased such a great gift for her. Great job, Caroline on such a well constructed piece of ski luggage!!J. Virgin
I LOVE my Skboot bag. My husband gave it to me for Christmas last year and I couldn’t have been more excited! I used to stuff my boots, gloves, socks, helmet etc. into a duffel bag and haul the bag over my shoulder back and forth to the ski lodge. Now I keep my Skboot bag packed and ready to wheel out the door. The Medium bag size is perfect for my size 8.5 woman’s ski boots, helmet, gloves and a few accessories. I love the included and removable wet bag. It keeps the main part of the bag clean and dry even after a day of slushy snow. This wet bag can easily be cleaned when needed. The “furry” goggle pouch is my favorite feature…I can rest assured that my goggles are safe even when tucked inside of the bag. Traveling with the Skboot has been a breeze, the wheels are very smooth and the handle long enough to comfortable pull behind while navigating an airport. I don’t know how I lived without this bag. It has been a wonderful addition to my collection of ski gear! Thanks for a great product!Virgin Excursions, VA, USA
Bags arrived. They are GREAT! Wish I had bought one earlier now – thank you. Timing of arrival was perfect – no one knows that they are here so will all be wrapped up and under the tree in a few weeks.F. Balfour,
I love my Skboot bag. Gone are the days of wearing my ski jacket, carrying my boots over my shoulder (ouch!) while trying to wheel my suitcase, carry my computer bag and handbag at the same time and hoping I don’t forget something! The SKBoot has proved to be my saviour for both international travel or for a quick trip up the mountain. I can fit all my ski clothes, boots, goggles, AND my computer (which I always travel with) into one bag and best of all, I don’t have to carry it! I find myself walking around airport terminals, bus stations and train stations with my SKBoot gliding behind, just because I can! And my shoulders are especially grateful. Thanks Skboot!Ellie McArthur

Hi Caroline I can see that you really did put a lot of thought into the Skboot bag – it’s got everything. Love the wet bag and the laptop case.

I took the SKBoot on my recent ski trip to Japan and the bag was great! It was really easy to use and was fine in the overhead storage on Jetstar.

I LOVE my SKBoot. I wish that I could use it to go skiing year round!

I took my newly purchased Skboot bag to Japan when I went skiing there (before the quake) earlier this year. I found it terrific. It is very smart in appearance, which immediately distinguishes it from all other boot bags. It is also the absolutely correct size, and takes all one’s necessary ski gear (other than the skis, of course) as well. I am sure it will be extremely successful.

My friend was delighted with the SKBoot – pulled it up and down the hall with a smile! (Friend was recovering from surgery in hospital and the SKBoot was bought for him as a gift).
Just to let you know the bag arrived already- congratulations on a great product, it is exactly what I was hoping for.
My partner Peta and I live in Australia and generally ski for 5 weeks every year travelling to either the continental US or Europe. We own our own equipment including boots and clothing. Before the advent of the Skboot bag we always found it awkward carrying this equipment over such long journeys and through a countless transport modes and airports.
Skboot has changed all that for us. Not only can our Skboot bags make transporting our boots a breeze but they also fit the vast majority of our ski clothing as well. This has made the ski travel experience a whole lot easier and a lot less stressful.
If you’re a serious skier or boarder we recommend you get a Skboot bag.

Thank you so much for all your responsiveness and followup. We did promptly receive the three items. If the boot bags are as good as your responsiveness, we know that they will be used for many years. We will be using them on a ski trip in the very near future.
Again, thank you,

No problem on the documentation as I breezed through customs with out any issues.
The bags look great and fit everything we needed quite nicely. Thanks for the excellent service!
