Are the zippered lakewood bow cases airline approved?

From: JTreeman
I’m not aware of any airline regulations for bow cases. They obviously have general requirements for baggage and separate regulations for firearms. But I don’t believe there is any kind of requirement for transport of archery equipment.

We flew 4 of them to Colorado in 2013. I don’t know if anything changed since then.

Yes they are airline approved. We just bought a case from them today at their booth.

Do they have rigid crush-proof reinforcement for the " airline approved" status. I've seen several cases over the years that claimed it but were no where near strong enough to protect your bow from the airlines.

I have had two "airline approved" cases destroyed by the airlines. Those people could break an anvil.

Despite an airline rating, Most require you sign a damage claim waiver, which means it's not their problem if they chew it up into little bits. They just have to hand you back the bits.
