|Outdoor enthusiasts should
carefully prepare and pack to avoid removal of prohibited items from checked baggage or
surrendering prohibited items at the security checkpoint. Below is information specific to
traveling in pursuit of outdoor activities:
Camp Stoves - Can travel as carry-on or checked luggage only if empty of all fuel and cleaned such that vapors and residue are absent. Simply emptying the fuel container is insufficient as flammable vapors remain.
Gasoline - Gasoline or any flammable liquid is prohibited from carry-on and checked luggage.
Aerosol insecticides - Hazardous aerosols, such as insecticides, not listed as accepted personal toiletries are not allowed in either carry-on or checked luggage. Acceptable personal toiletries include hair sprays, deodorants in limited quantities.
Matches and Lighters - Up to one lighter and one safety match box are allowed in your carry-on baggage - NOT checked baggage. Disposable lighters and absorbed liquid lighters are allowed in your carry-on baggage. Lighters with unabsorbed liquid fuel and refillable butane lighters are NOT permitted. Strike anywhere matches are NOT permitted.
Flares - Flare guns are prohibited from carry-on and checked luggage.
Knives & Tools - Knives and tools are prohibited from carry-on luggage. These items should be packed in checked luggage. Any sharp objects packed in checked luggage should be sheathed or securely wrapped to prevent injury to baggage handlers and security screeners.
Animal Repellants - Chemical repellants can be carried in checked luggage if the volume is less than 4 ounces and has less than a 2% active ingredient. Most bear repellants exceed these limitations. We suggest buying such items at your destination and leaving them behind upon return.
