Situated high in the Rocky Mountains Vail Valley, Colorado, Sportube has been a manufacturer of hard sided ski & snowboard travel cases and travel accessories since 1995. Manufactured in the USA, Sportube hard cases are strong, durable, lightweight; manufactured from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) that will stand up to any challenge that they face. With over 20 years of experience in providing travel solutions, Sportube has taken that valuable knowledge and introduced a line of specially designed soft ski bags and padded gear and boot bags. Sportube is committed to offering products with the best protection available, the soft, padded ski bags offer Gear Shield Technology ™; a hard plastic sheath of HDPE that protects the tips and tails of your skis while in transit. Unlike the competition, our boot & gear bags are padded to offer unmatched protection when checking your gear at the airport; allowing for peace of mind that your gear will be safe from damage. Don’t make your first stop the baggage claim office.


Series 1 Sportube

Our smallest and lightest case, the Series 1 is designed to protect ONE pair of Alpine skis and poles OR TWO pair of Nordic/Skate/XC skis and poles. With interior dimensions of 168mm x 140mm and a length adjustable up to 212cm, the Series 1 case can protect just about any ski and binding setup you can throw at it, including your race skis and your fat powder skis.

As you can see in the picture below, the skis are positioned "tip to tail" with the bindings facing each other. This is the only way you'll be able to get a pair of Alpine skis in the Series 1 Sportube and is also the most space efficient method of transporting your skis.



  • 6 5/8"w X 5 1/2"d (168mm x 140mm)
  • Adjustable in length from 48" to 83" (122cm to 212cm)
  • Weighs 8lbs (3.62kg)

Series 2 Sportube

The Series 2 Sportube is the perfect case for traveling with your front side and back side skis. Or if you are traveling with someone, you can both bring your favorite pair of skis and poles and only have to transport one Sportube to your destination, making traveling even easier.


  • Designed to hold TWO pair of Alpine Skis and poles OR FOUR pair of Nordic/Skate/XC skis and poles
  • 11"w X 6"d (280mm x 152mm)
  • Adjustable in length from 48" to 83" (122cm to 212cm)
  • Weighs 12lbs (5.45kg)

Series 3 Sportube

Our Series 3 Sportube is our most versatile Sportube case. With several options and combinations of snowboards and/or skis, you are sure to fit just about everything your traveling with in the Series 3. The only restriction to keep in mind with the Series 3's is their max length is 72" or 183cm. Originally designed as a case for up to TWO snowboards with boots and bindings, it was made a bit shorter than what is necessary for some skis out there. If you strictly transporting skis and need a longer option, the Series 2 Sportube is the way to go.

In the picture below, you can see that we got THREE pair of adult skis in the Series 3 Sportube. With a little creative packaging we've been able to get FOUR pair in, as long as two of the pair are children size skis.

  • Designed to protect up to TWO snowboards with binding and boots
  • OR (with creative packing) ONE snowboard with boots and ONE pair of skis and poles together
  • OR up to FOUR pair of skis and poles (TWO adult pair and TWO kids pair of skis)
  • OR TWO pair of skis and poles and boots
  • Great for a family case
  • 14 1/2"W x 7 7/8"D (368mm x 200mm)
  • Adjustable in length from 42" to 72" (107cm to 183cm)
  • Weighs 14lbs (6.35kg)
