Why risk damaging expensive guns, shafts, spear points and fins by
packing them in a soft bag? Sportube hard cases protect all your gear, whether
you are checking it with an airline, shipping it with a local carrier or just
loading it on top of the truck.
Depending on the amount of gear you need to travel with, the
Sportube Series 1, Series 2 and Series 3 will all work for you. If it’s just
for yourself, you’re likely to be good with either a Series 1 or Series 2. For
guided trips (or to reduce the number of bags you’re using) the Series 3 is
great for consolidating the whole group’s gear.
When packing for his trip to the US Spearfishing Nationals, our athlete Marnie Casem was able to fit the following gear in a Series 2 Sportube:
"Pair of Free diving Fins; Mask; Snorkel; 8' Breakdown Pole Spear; 2 Spear guns w/reels; 2 Spear shafts; 1 Kayak Anchor; Two-piece 5mm Wet suit; 12# Weight Belt"
Sportube cases are the preferred product to protect the pros gear:
"Sportube was chosen by the USA Spearfishing Team for the safety, security and ease in packing and traveling. In one Series 3 Sportube I was able to carry 9 guns, a full suit, a pair of fins and most of my small accessories. They are easy to adjust to any size load and have a durable set of wheels for easy travel."

"The Sportube is the ONLY travel case I use to protect my gear. Its simplicity of design, and sturdy construction make it the choice of divers all over the world. Being that type that over packs for trips, especially competitions, I can fit a TON of gear in one tube and usually meet the airlines weight standards."

"Your lightweight and very durable Sportube product enabled me to take the necessary spear guns and dive equipment I needed yet stayed within the rigid checked luggage weight restrictions when traveling to unique, Chile last year. After 34 hours of flight and four plane changes, it was reassuring to know that my three spear guns & shafts, Matrix fiberglass fins and other dive gear traveled without harm (or extra baggage fees!) in my Series-2 Sportube. Thank you for having such a reliable product!"
