Safety and security while transporting ski and/or snowboard equipment is always important and the variety of products offered by Sportube offer plenty of both. The company’s hard-shell containers are made from high-density polyethylene and are capable of absorbing some hard knocks, whether strapped to the roof racknor transported by other means. The Series 3 Special Edition is built to contain up to two pairs of skis or two snowboards plus boots and bindings, but will also hold all types of gear. Built-in wheels and a detachable tow handle are included as is a “nic knac pak” for storing extra gear. The Series 3 sells for $260 and is available from www.sportube.com.
