Hi all - can anyone advise -
are those large wheeled equipment bags (various manufacturers - like Mares and aqualung) acceptable by the airlines ? If not what are the dimensions you need ?
Thanks ED

Hi Ed,
I've had a Body Glove "Clamshell" for a few years now, its been abroad 5 or 6 times and still look like new (well almost).

They are built like a brick s**t house and store the kit like the tardis, great for the holiday cos the dive kit goes in the bottom and the 'T' shirts, shorts and socks in the top. The bottom is hard and the top is soft with your cloths so your kit is protected from the baggage handlers.

The only down side i have found is that the zips dont like salt water, so not ideal for those day dive trips to the seaside.

I was so inpressed i also brought one of there dive bags (with the chunky zips) as well

Hope this helps

Regards Dave

Hi Ed,
We dive with a large Aqualung bag, that allows you to zip on the backpack, equivalent to the current Pro HD I suppose. It gets 2 full sets of wetsuit gear in plus other stuff. managed to get it weighed in at 33kgs in September at Split airport - very grumpy check in lady! We also now use an IC Tec130 so that I don't have to haul everything by myself and she who must be obeyed can now pull her own stuff.
Cheers
Adrian
