Just wondering if anyone has had experiences with the Orucase airport ninja. How were your experiences with getting it as checked luggage fee.

Thanks

Nope, but I was kind of shopping for something similar and ran into Trash Messenger Bags Space Junk bag. I didn't end up buying anything, but started making one myself based on Space Junk design of corrugated plastic with a cordura bag. I was planning on testing this on my trip to Maui, but may be going with loaner bag. Making one myself is cheaper than buying one, but getting the bag made by pro upholsterer is still fair bit of money.

I've flown successfully with my ninja 10+ times. I've never been charged but I've been damn close. It's never going to be measured the issue will be an employee knowing that's a bike case. So tips don't fly airlines that will charge you $150 for a bike they are motivated to catch you. Also don't dress like a cyclist. Have a plausible explanation for what's in the bag and make sure it's not bulging. In general I've only had problems around San Fran since they've seen so many bikes. Also do curbside whenever possible.

Flown over 20 flights with the Ninja case. I've only had one agent measure the bag and charge an oversized fee of $75 (Southwest).
