I hiked the AT with an external frame pack, but recently replaced with an
internal. A major reason is that I like to travel with backpacks (whether
hiking or not), internals seem more air travel friendly, I didn't want two
packs (one for hiking one for other), and I wanted my one pack to be a
backpacking tool first, and a piece of baggage second.
But to my point... another hobby of mine is ice hockey. If you have access to
a hockey equipment bag, preferably with a soft bottom, then I recommend
putting your pack into it for the airline. If not, the bags are a little
pricey to buy just for this. They're plenty big and work like a charm.
I do take the hip belt off and re-assemble at destination just for a more
"tubular" fit inside the hockey bag.
