Transport Your Gear Safely
>> Protect against punctures
Prevent sharp points from poking holes in your pack by using tip covers. Pack a file and refresh spikes anytime; learn how at backpacker.com/sharpencrampons.
>> Guard electronics
Pack as many of your expensive gadgets as possible in your carry-on. If you must check some, pack them in a clear, hard-sided container (inside your duffel), and lock your luggage with a TSA-approved lock.
>> Leave banned gear home
Bear spray, torch lighters, and all types of cooking fuel are prohibited on flights.
