What wakeboard bag for traveling?

I will be traveling soon with my gear.
I will need a wakeboard bag to carry it all.(Board w/bindings, vest, etc..) Not Surf. Does anybody have a suggestion on any they have used?
Prices are anywhere from $50-$200. I don't have a clue which ones would be good enough to take on an air plane.

I have a liquid force one I really like. They also make one that says golf on it so you don’t get a huge charge on airlines.

I have the liquid force golf one, sometimes I get charged with it for a normal checked bag and sometimes I donít because it says golf. But Iíve had 3 boards and 3 pairs of bindings and 3 vests in it and there was plenty of room.

That's awesome. I am going for a 2 day trip with hopefully 1 setup. I shouldn't need much.

I too have a Liquid Force bag, the Day Tripper. It's awesome, and I haven't had any issues with things getting damaged in it so I'd suggest it. As far as the airlines, I've just said I have "sporting equipment" to check or "water skis" (do NOT say you have a board, as they will count your wakeboard as a surf board and charge you out the wazoo). As long as the weight is under 50lbs, you should pay the normal check bag charge or no charge at all. When I flew out of Austin on American, I paid the normal check bag fee and when I flew out of O'Hare on the return they didn't charge me. Both instances I chose "sporting equipment" on the kiosk.

Thank you tmothy07. I will use your words. I am looking at the Liquid Force one that packs up into a small pouch. I have that for my surf boards. I just don't want my board all jacked up.

We fly with ours in our old burton snowboard bag. Can fit two wakeboards my sons slalom, vest and ropes. Have to take off the bindings and pack them in the ends of the bag, but that helps prevent crushing anyways. Snowboards count as regular checked luggage. Iíve never been questioned checking in. Maybe the fact that our airport deals with a ton of ski traffic helps.
