    Duffel bag for downhill gear?

    Hi all,
    going to Whistler soon and looking for something decent to carry my downhill gear (full-face helmet, beefy arm & leg protection, etc). Can anyone recommend a good bag that they use for these kind of trips? I think THE industries had some but I don't see them anymore, must be discontinued.

    Thanks!

    I use that big orange duffel bag from Crankbrothers. TONS of room for all my DH gear and more. The TLD bags are pretty good also.

    The North Face makes a pretty heavy duty big duffel bag for travel. Sports Authority has them on clearance. A more expensive bag, but seems like it would take a beating.

    Most motoshops like CycleGear have them in stock and you can check them out in person to see what fits your needs. Whatever you get make sure it has wheels, you won't regret it when you travel. I use an OGIO moto gearbag.

    Thanks everyone for the responses!
    @jurichar, having looked at all the bags I agree the Fox Podium Covert looks best and great reviews! Unfortunately it's $140 and nobody's giving a discount - a bit expensive for a bag. I'll check ebay from time to time and if nothing there I'll just walk into a local Moto shop and bite the bullet...

    okay, they don't have discounts BUT I did find something interesting: Fox Racing Shuttle 180 that goes for $100. Does anyone know what the difference is between this bag and the Fox Racing Shuttle Undertow, that sells for $160-180?

    Moto and MTB specific bags are a ripoff. Get a hockey bag. They come in bigger sizes and are way less expensive and often built better.

    True. Get one configured like a backpack. side pouch for your boots, tons of inner storage for vest, neck brace, helmet.

    I know this isn't what you asked, but for generally transporting gear, I think a great idea (more for day to day use) is to get a mesh duffel bag (REI has them, I think kayakers use them). All your sweaty, stinky gear will air dry in the bag. No nasty hockey bag reek. Really great if you have a pickup and can throw the bag in the bed
