Default Only thing is you prolly have to check that puppy in when you fly...

Will it fit in the overhead bin on most airlines? It looks VERY robust and should do a great job of protect all that nice glass.

Have you consider this? You can carry it on internationally. I'm not comfortable entrusting my gear to the airlines. Just saying...

Default If you're going international why not just ship it UPS?

With the fees the airlines are charging I'd rather ship it via someone that's far less likely to fvck it up.

I have a feeling this is mostly for him locally, to simplify the process going to and from events. I'm not sure he has a reason to go that heavy on a vacation.

Default I'd have to imagine that it would not be his first or second checked bag...

****, Delta charges $15 for the first bag on domestic flights now.

hint: pack a starter pistol and inform them when you check the baggage.

Default Your bag will get the extra special treatment.

Sounds like a great idea until you start to work out the arrival in Beijing with a pistol in your bag.
