The Best Protection for Your Skis: SporTube Series 2 Review

Sport Tube is armor for your one of your biggest gear investments.

My skis are some of the dearest investments I’ve made, and I spend more time with them than I do many of my friends, so I want to make sure they’re taken care of – especially on the way to a powdery wonderland. With my SporTube Series 2, I have peace of mind when I send by sticks into the unknown abyss of baggage handling. 

It felt so much more secure than trying to wrap a jacket around my skis to protect them in a soft case, and I was even happier when I discovered the rollers at the bottom of the case so I didn’t have to throw it on my shoulder for those long walks through the airport and hotel. 


The SporTube Series 2 can carry two pairs of skis and poles, and anything else you can fit in there. The case's plastic is light but durable, and the pull handle at the end and side handles make maneuvering the case super easy during travel. There is also internal straps to lock your gear in place for even better protection. And while black is always a solid choice, the orange color is super fun!

I live in Seattle, but my life happens in the mountains. My hobbies include long walks in the woods, whiskey in hot springs, and carrying skis up long slogs for a few turns in late summer.
