I do a fair amount of travel for contests. I have a couple of Pelican cases …each large enough for either a K3 or a KPA500 and accessories. They are of course too large to take as carryon, and normally I just check them, without incident.
My next trip is to Suriname, with a change of planes and airlines ..(meaning rechecked baggage) in Trinidad. I’ve been told in no uncertain terms that putting the K3 in checked luggage for this is a doubleplus ungood idea. Luckily for this trip, I’ll need only a K3 and a Microkeyer, but I am wondering …is there a Pelican case (or equivalent) out there, that is small enough to qualify as carry on, but large enough to hold a K3?
p.s. I also thought about just shipping the gear ahead of time …I was also told that was a bad idea.
