  • Air travel with riding gear

    I'm back from flying to visit a friend and wanted to mention this bag that worked great to pack clothes plus boots/helmet/body protector/etc for riding:

    Travelpro Bold 30" Rolling Duffle Bag With Drop Bottom

    Having the two sections worked great to keep my clothes separate from all the other stuff. I did put my helmet in the top section, surrounded by all my clothes, and everything came through in great shape.

    Check your airline restrictions -- Delta allows up to 50 lbs and I could easily have gone over if I'd kept adding stuff. I stopped at 46.5 lbs and there was still room!

    What other bags or techniques have you used that worked for traveling with riding gear?
    ... and Patrick

    Saddle as a carryon. Try to fly southwest so I get two bags free.

      I usually use a rolling duffle - and found that packing my helmet upside down saved space as I filled it with socks LOL. and then packed my boots along the sides of bag. And always put in carry-on for trip to, and coming home didn't matter.

        Put your stuffs into a checked baggage. I strongly recommend you to fill the helmet and boots with soft clothes like t-shirt, socks or underwear to keep the form in a good condition!
