Bad News About Your Carry On Boot Bag - Page 2

post #31 of 52

Luckily for me I'm overdue to replace my boots, so they can go ahead and lose them so they can help pay for the replacement!  LMAO

 

Seriously, if this ever came to pass, I would just take out my intuition liners and footbeds and carry them on.  If the shells were lost, it's less of an issue than the whole boot.

Won't boots nested like L7 fit? I'd think it just would mean boot bags couldn't assume that side by side was okay for planes. My feet might be smaller than some, though. Fortunately, this whole problem doesn't apply to me anymore. 😁

My boots would barely fit in that with maybe an inch of to spare each direction.

Nah, you can carry a personal item (purse) and carryon (boots). And boots are much much smaller than that ^^. They don't take up half the room of a small suitcase in the overhead. It's not an issue, period. I hate carrying bulky crap on planes, anyway -- I just check the rest, usually. (Although yeah, often I do throw pants and goggles and a beanie in a bag, so I can ski. I can easily/inexpensively buy everything else if things get lost.)

Err - not my boots.    

Side by side (100mm+buckles)-> fail depthwise  as they cannot be less than 8 inches

Heel to heel (306mm) -> fail widthwise as they cannot be less than 24 inches across. 

Nestled L7 style -> fail heightwise at 22.5 inches (floor to liner height + 5" clog roof)

...

AFAICT we'd pretty much need all to be in cabrio women's shells, 25.0 or less, for those carryon dimensions to work, unless we bring 1 boot per.     Racers with 95mm lasts *might*, just *might* be able to get away with 26.0.

The info in this thread is really disturbing. In our case, for the past 8 years, once or twice (rarely) son takes his Dad skiing somewhere, and both of us, carry our skiing essentials on our backs, except skis which we rent. This could be a big problem, since it's not just boots, but one set of ski clothes, and essentials. Not encouraging, but let's see, hopefully, they make an exception for skiers!

I have a hunch that some of the nickle and dimers will just add a fee for a slightly larger bag.  Again this is probably at least a year away.  Meanwhile I bet that Boeing and Air Bus have airliners in the pipeline with less and less personal space, seat room, overhead space, etc per passenger to pack as many people and ticket revenues in to a can as possible.

Wow. That better be travel in a Hyperloop, MagLev and at Multiple Mach speeds, could'nt last long in that posture, and the kids ? In pens in the cargo hold :eek

 

No one is flying to ski then, will be in no shape on landing. Emirates are going in the opposite direction - though I am not really into flying through Dubai, just a personal taste thing, many I know love going there and have work connections and hence transit there. To wit:

Speaking of the L7 fit - I'd like to find a bag that holds boots this way.

 

Anyone have ideas?

post #39 of 52

Dakine Boot locker is L7 at  22 x 15 x 13 - but the top folds to almost flat so figure 9 inch height ish.     Or are you speaking of a backpack?   Most any backpack with a 22 in torso and 15 in width (~22l size) will do this.

 

FWIW XL-size Timbuk2 messenger bags will also do this up to ~28 Mondo

This really works well for boots and a total outfit. You can fluff the top down and make it look smaller. Boots go into the separate bottom.

That Lange bag is pretty cool. Exactly what I'm looking for.

 

edit - Looks like everywhere is out of stock on these...

I just traveled with boots. I stopped at the airport early with my boots & 3 boot bags to see what configuration would work best. None! I traveled with them over my shoulder and not in a bag.

cbtbakkes, that's interesting.  What airline?  I went on three airborne ski trips last winter carrying-on a large, full size boot bag each time.  I used SWA once and Delta twice and nobody questioned the size of my boot bag?!?  I even called special attention to the bag once when I had trouble stuffing it into an overhead compartment on one aircraft.  I had to take my helmet out of the boot bag and stow it separately as an attendant and a full plane of passengers watched me get myself squared away.  Now that I think about it, I probably checked my boot bag on the outbound flight when I used SWA.

I just flew Delta. 2 years ago I flew with boots and had the same issue with American & United. I had to take 1 boot out of the bag on each flight to fit into the overhead. The stand they had for you to see if your bag wad within carry-on dimensions will not allow an adult size pair to sit side by side or on top of each other like Tetrus game pieces. They allowed me to carry them separately even though they technically didn't make the cut. I hear all the time about what people carry on in their boot bags & not sure how they get away with it. Even some of the suit cases I see people roll with them are bigger than my checked duffle bag. Another reason I won't fly unless it's way more than a 24 hour drive!

Why don't you just do what I do and purchase a seat for your boots? That way you know they'll be comfortable.

Get it? Comfortable ski boots? biggrin.gif

Winters a comin' better get that chainsaw a humming.

What I have done a few times when I couldn't fit my transpack in the overhead is just take one of the boots out.

post #49 of 52

I have the Dakine Boot locker, boots fit in bottom L7, in the top part I have googles ,gloves, helmet ski pants and have flown out to Oregon twice and was never bothered. flew JB and AL

I just bought the Athalon Dual Entry Boot Bag from Al's Ski Barn (untracked.com) for $40. It's TSA compliant, boots on the bottom, helmet and other stuff on the top.  Comfortable backpack straps and support and handle.

 

I like it.  Not a ton of room, but carry-on and fits everything.

post #51 of 52
Great price

I have taken the boots out, strapped them together and carried them on. Then I check the bag.
