[at-l] RE: Air Travel with a Pack


My Jansport external frame pack (essentially empty) fits into a garment
bag box.  When I fly with my pack for my section hikes, I put my gear
into a large duffle.  Once I get to my destination, I crunch my duffle
and my street clothes into a mailer and mail it my ending town's post
office.  The garment box has worked well for me and my hiking partner;
usually items in these boxes are among the lightest stowed items and
tend to be stacked together or in the top of the cargo hold, reducing
smush potential.

Take Care,
