Anybody ever have problems bringing snorkeling gear as your carryon luggage at the airport? I was going to call one of the airlines but maybe somebody here have travelled with the gear as a carry on. I can't picture any of these being used as a weapon but I'm wondering if the TSA will think of a reason to not allow any of these. Not my equipment but thinking of getting some gear.

I've carried mine on several different times with no problem whatsoever. In my case it was in a carry on bag along with other items.

I've carried snorkeling and diving equipment on flights.
Sometimes I carry mine in an extra bag.
No problems.

This always posed a dilemma for me but recently I have begun wearing my snorkeling gear right onto the plane.

Never had a problem with our gear in a carry-on. One thing we learned, fins take up a LOT of space! We usually don't even use them unless the current is pretty strong. If we need them, just rent from a local dive shop, it's cheap. Highly recommend using anti-fog gel or drops instead of spit, and replace the rubber head strap with a neoprene one. They are much more comfortable and don't pull hair. Just don't let the neoprene and silicone touch for long-it will degrade the silicone!
