For the winter of 2016-17, Sun Mountain is bringing its award-winning golf travel bag design to its new SkiGlider ski travel bag and FreeGlider snowboard travel bag. The SkiGlider and FreeGlider are the only ski and snowboard travel bags that have extendable legs and wheels to support 100% of their weight, while eliminating the repeated heavy lifting required by traditional travel bags. The SkiGlider and FreeGlider come in Gunmetal Blue or Black-Red color schemes and retail for $299.99.
The SkiGlider ski travel bag and FreeGlider snowboard travel bag already have earned the endorsement of the U.S. National Ski Patrol. They are based on our ClubGlider golf travel bag, which was named the best golf travel cover for 2016 by Golf Digest magazine for its size, durability and maneuverability.
The SkiGlider and FreeGlider go from parking lot to check-in counter at airports and mountain resorts thanks to legs that extend and support 100% of the bags’ weight, and pivoting high-impact wheels with durable heat-treated axles that handle corners and curbs with ease. Once checked in, the legs easily retract in a single motion for travel or storage. SkiGlider and FreeGlider offer the protection of traditional ski and snowboard travel bags while eliminating the need for repeated heavy lifting every time the check-in line moves 3 feet.
The SkiGlider holds two pairs of skis up to 190 cm, boots and poles with room for a helmet and other gear. Made of 1200 D Polyester, the upper is fully padded and reinforced in wear areas to protect skis, and has three internally accessed pockets and heavy-duty, two-way zippers running the full length for easy packing. Skis are secured by three internal cinch straps and a padded pouch at the base for protection. The legs retract into a molded tray at the base for travel. The bag weighs 13.2 lbs. and folds down to 26” X 14” X 14” for storage.
The FreeGlider holds two snowboards up to 166 cm and two pairs of boots with extra room. It features similar construction and protection, but has one internal cinch strap, one internally/externally accessed pocket and one internally accessed pocket. The bag weighs 13.35 lbs. and folds down to 26” x 12” x 14” for storage.
