Had high expectations of this case given Zpacks pedigree but still exceeded easily - crazy light, simple yet super-intelligent design, incredibly easy to use.

Our Airplane Travel Case is a useful addition for the jetsetting adventurer looking to blaze international trails. Slide your backpack inside to protect it when checking your backpack on to a plane. When you arrive, move the airplane case to the inside of your backpack and it doubles as a pack liner.


  • The Airplane Case adds protection when checking your backpack on to a plane. It has a sturdy webbing handle on the side for carrying your pack to the terminal. The handle is long so that you can keep your hand centered depending on height of the backpack.

  • The top of the case has a standard roll top opening, and it also has 2 small loops so that you can clip the top with a TSA approved lock, or with a carabiner for a little extra security.

  • This case also doubles as a pack liner! Just move it from the outside of your backpack to the inside once you reach your destination. It has the same construction as our standard pack liner, except it is made from thicker Dyneema® Composite Fabric for extra durability. The seams are taped.

  • The dimensions are a little bit larger than our standard pack liner so that it will fit the exterior of our backpacks. You will likely need to remove any water bottles or gear from the exterior backpack pockets; move those items to the inside of the pack. It will fit all of our backpacks and other similarly sized packs.

  • Tip: Your backpack will slide into the case easier if you put it in upside down.

  • All Zpacks gear has a two year limited warranty against defects in materials or workmanship. Please see our return / warranty policy.

  • Made in the USA.

Flat Dimensions: 22" wide x 38.5" tall (56 cm x 98 cm)

Volume: Generally fits backpacks up to 70 Liters with items removed from the exterior pockets. All our backpacks will fit w/ the pockets empty.

Airplane Case-too long

It’s perhaps 8” too long for 40-45 liter pack. Good opening diameter.

Purchased this to carry a my pack during air travel - to cut down on pack wear, floor filth at airports, and for ease of carry, extra security etc while in transit. Had high expectations of this case given Zpacks pedigree but still exceeded easily - crazy light, simple yet super-intelligent design, incredibly easy to use. Bonus - so light, no-brainer to take into backcountry even at home as dry-bag etc. Love it.

Fit my 48l pack and safely carried it through the checked luggage of several airlines. Then it becomes a great pack liner. Highly recommend to everyone.
