Traveling with a Sportube

Nothing protects equipment like a hard shell case. Some airlines will no longer take responsibility for broken skis or boards when packed in a soft bag. Breakage happens, so why run the risk of having to deal with it on a sunny day with two feet of fresh powder!? Why worry about damage to expensive rods and reels packed in a soft case?

  • All Sportube cases are accepted by the airlines
  • Many airlines are actually supporting and recommending the use of a hard 'rigid' case.

  • In lieu of one bag, the airline will typically allow 1 set of ski equipment (1 pair of skis, poles, boots, and bindings) per passenger.
  • It is important to note however, that each airline is different. Rules and regulations can change; therefore we recommend that passengers check with their appropriate airlines prior to travel for the most up-to-date information.
