Bags and ski equipment: an essential feature
Choosing a ski bag suitable for transport involves some attention to materials. As we have already mentioned above, waterproofing this is a really fundamental aspect to enjoy your holidays in the mountains without having to worry about getting the trunk of your car wet, for example.
Resistance and long life: these should be the watchwords to move towards a product that can accompany us for a long time in our days on the snow. All Rossignol ski covers are made of a robust polyester 600 denier with waterproof internal coating, to which additional padding can be added.
Once you have identified a bag that meets this basic characteristic, all you have to do is find the one that suits your discipline of choice.

For this reason, the dominant color is certainly black, a guarantee: no stains will appear and it will not need to be washed often.
Black is the color par excellence it goes with everything, but in the case of Rossignol we decided to add a touch of our iconic orange from the HERO lineto allow even a simple ski bag to better match your outfits, even off the ski slopes.
