Thread: Traveling with your tail

    Traveling with your tail

    So I am visiting my folks down at the gulf coast next weekend and I wanted to bring my tail with me. However the monofin is a bit awkwardly sized and doesn't fit in a traditional suitcase. How do y'all travel with a tail?

    I got a larger suitcase, the largest that is still considered to be "not oversized". The Finfun barely fits. The Mertailor easily fists, as the fin is floppy. The Lunocet comes apart, and easily fits.
    Also: If it is a silicone tail, get a scale so you do not go over 50 pounds as you fill the suitcase with stuff in addition to the tail.
    Another way I handled the situation: I Fed-Ex'ed the tail. It is about the same cost as airlines charge for extra checked bags.

    I have the Linden, so it doesn't bend super well. I'm actually thinking about being extra and sewing up a travel bag for it today...
    The Fed-Ex information is fantastic if I ever work my way up to a silicone. But that won't be for a long while

    This is such a good resource! I'll totally keep that in mind if I get one of those styles

    Maybe the Linden could be worn in its little backpack as a carry-on? I've never flown on a plane so idk those restrictions though haha.

    The maximum size of a carry-on is 9 x 14 x 22 inches. No normal monofin is that small.
    The maximum size of a checked bag is typically 14 x 21 x 27 inches. Many monofins will fit in that.
    The actual maximum size of a checked bag without special fees is length + width + height = 62 inches. The size I gave above is just the typical size that is on the market. But you could fold up your own cardboard box that is, say, 4 x 24 x 34 inches, and it would be acceptable.
