Traveling with Hotronics?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Anyone traveled on a plane lately with Hotronics in their carry on? Just wondering if it caused any problems during the TSA screening.

 Hi,
sorry .... i don't know the answer, but if you'll indulge me ( as a fellow okemo skier) do these foot warmers really make a
worthwhile difference? my wife ands son have been complaining about cold feet recently, my son skis with omara and they ski
no matter how cold it is...... 2010 has been very cold and i want to keep them happy on the mountain as long as i can.
thanks.....

 I had thought about this and I am taking my heaters off and packing them. 

And yeah, they ARE worth it, this is my first season with them and they ARE niiiice.

I had mine in carry-on from Vail to Bosotn on New Years Day. No problems.

 I took my heater units off and put them in my checked baggage.  I figured it was easy enough to do.

I have carried mine in a backpack with my computer all last year with no issues. But things unfortunately have changed since the underpants guy. Heading out on 22nd and will put them in my backpack again.

Just don't stuff them in your shorts Tom and you should be okay.

Definitely worth it. My feet are cold ALL the time -- even in the summer -- and my boots aren't especially warm. The Hotronics make a huge difference. Pair them with a Boot Glove on very cold days -- extreme, I know, but I do it -- and you have warm feet.

Yeah, I was thinking I could pack them in my check in luggage, but with the TSA going through everything now, I was wondering about that, too. I mean, at least if they were in my carry on I could explain them? Maybe?

 Last time I flew my boots and heaters were given the once over. At that time the TSA agent said it was probably better that I had the batteries with the boots because he would think the wires coming out of the boots without batteries, would have been more suspicious. May depend on the airport and the individual agent. The heaters work well though we've had issues with batteries.

You got me laughing on that one Coach!

Flew out to SLC last Friday with boots fully loaded with AAA's (I like them better than rechargeables as I can replace on the hill on really cold days) in my carry-on, and there wasn't any kind of scrutiny whatsoever.

m4s are genius.  doing a season over here in the states and my buddy keeps thinking about diving in coz of cold feet.

one thing i would say is to get the most out of them convenience wise, ditch the metal hooks they come with and get the power strap fttings.  no danger of banging them on any lifts then.  they work a charm....
