    Traveling...carry on baggage

    Hey everyone,

    I don't know if this is the right post. I couldn't find a specific thread with many viewers. I am planning a trip to Whistler Blackcomb next week. Will be flying to Seattle then driving to Whistler on Monday. I was wondering if anyone ever carried their full face helmet as a carry on. I have an evoc FR unlimited backpack and was going to attach my helmet and knee pads to it. I was wondering if anyone knew if that was ok to do.

    Helmet is no problem as long as it fits in the bin or under the seat

    These days it might come in handy to wear if you recline your seat into the person behind you.

    I put a folding bike in the bin twice a week - I think you will be fine with the helmet

    People carry on ski boots all the time, so I'm sure a helmet won't be a problem. Worst comes to worst you can just wear it.

    I fly for the airline industry.. Helmets are fine.. Just put it in a bag / case.. Also, most airlines allow you 2 carry-ons.. so a helmet and a backpack is ok.. others charge you anything you bring on board so be careful.. Check on the airlines website to see how many carry-ons you are allowed..
