Active Junky's Morgan Mason recently took a trip to Mexico, and the Sportube Series 2 accompanied him. Read below for what he had to say about how the hard case performed.

Sportube Series 2Starting at: $163.76

If there ever was a conversation starter in an airport, rolling the Sportube (yep, it has wheels) through your local landing strip loaded with adventure gear is it. This hard-shelled plastic and adjustable-length container started up at least a dozen conversations and saved my gear from the abuse that notoriously happens with airlines. What did I pack the Sportube with?

1. Werner Rip Stick SUP Paddle
2. Patagonia R1 Wetsuit Top
3. Salvimar Speargun
4. Riffe Wetsuit
5. Cressi mask & snorkel
6. Dive weights & belt

The Sportube Series 2 was my selected size, which snugly fit all the gear listed above. While the Sayulita adventure called for water gear, Sportubes are more often used for ski and snowboard equipment. If you need to protect your skis, the Series 2 is it; if snowboarding is your passion, the Series 3 is the size for you.

This airline- and FedEx-friendly container performed amazingly well to keep my gear safe. So well, I’ve already bought the Series 3 for my splitboard I’ll be flying up to Bozeman for a hut trip. Gearheads rejoice, here’s your luggage piece.
