This is wrong. The bag I have is an XT1, not the bigger TRV. Hope this doesnt cause anyone any issues. I wont let it happen again.

Carry-On Boot Bag

Can anyone recommend a carry-on boot bag that would also fit a helmet? Asking more for my girlfriend, so smallish boots (24.5) and a smallish helmet.

Backpack straps would be ideal, but not necessary.

I have a Rossignol boot and helmet bag, built well, inexpensive and works great for me.

Can anyone confirm whether the xti will be allowed overhead on a delta flight. If not i have repack tonite

more relevant than the airLINE is the airPLANE

dont know about overhead info, but for seating is use
www.seatguru.com

worst case: take it on packed, then take the boots out once on the plane

I've done it a few times but I had a transpack backpack with the boots hanging (strapped) on the side. My wife and kids have them too and we have not had any problems with any airlines.

I just flew back from Aspen with mine no problem. I had all my equipment and clothes in a double roller that ended up around 60 lbs. They wanted $75 for an overweight bag, so I just pulled my boots out and slung them over my shoulder.

I have a boot bag that is okay for many overhead compartments, but does not fit on some. When it won't fit, I gate check with no problem and pick it back up when I get off the plane.

My wife and I both have High Sierra Boot Bags and have loved them for the last 5 years, with no problems. So far the Have gone on board with us everytime. Boots go in side compartment, with drain holes for moisture drip. Center area fits Helmet, gloves thermals goggles and ski pants and toiletries. This way if our checked in baggage gets lost, we have everything we need to still go skiing.
Check out deals at sports authority or Dick's online. We got ours for 25 each.
