    Hi All,

    I will be traveling next week...I intend to purchase the Wii carrying case. My question is can i keep the carrying case with Wii in my checkin bag ? Is it safe there ? I know lot of people travel, appreciate if you could let me know your experiences.

    Thanks

    yes, take it with you, do not put it with the rest of the luggage.

    is like taking your laptop with you, only one thing so you don't waste a lot of time... make sure you take it out of the bag, before scanning it in the metal screening machine. just as it was a laptop

    Try and keep it with you as 'Hand Luggage'
    If they make you put it with the rest of your suitcases. Make sure it's well wrapped, Those bags get hit around ALOT!

    they cannot make you put it with the luggage, like I said in the post, is like traveling with a laptop.

    Whatever happens, make sure that the Wii ends up as hand luggage, as mentioned above, because I have seen the way they throw bags onto those planes and its not a pretty sight.

    I have the messenger bag posted above. It holds more than the sling bag which I had 1st and returned. A special padded pocket for the sensor bar is a nice touch. really well padded too. My only gripe is it is still not big enough as I only have 2 remotes and 1 nunchuk and 3 games..... when everthing is packed in there is little room to spare and I will be getting more stuff obviously.

    That may be or similar to this
    Wii Pro Gamer Case ~ $19.99

    I just ordered one. By reading the reviews, it looks like the case can hold a lot more than the sling bag or other options.

    I got my case in. Everything but the games fit in, but a CD case could hold any games and I have a couple of those. I didn't take the batteries out, but they could have easily fit in to the same area that the stand is in or in the cables area. It was a little tight, but everything fit. So, I am ready to take the Wii to a party at someone else's house that doesn't have a Wii.

    In the top compartment:
    4 motes
    2 chucks
    sensor bar
    battery charger

    In the bottom compartment:

    2 chucks
    component cables
    regular default cables
    power cord
    Wii
    Wii stand

    Hmm what does that thing look like shut? you might get some shady looks carrying that through an airport

    I'd just say go online and find out how many Carry-ons the airport will let you take. in most of my flying experience it's been two carry-ons (purse, backpack, small luggage, if it fits in the overhead, it can be a carry-on.) I mean, if worse comes to worst just stick it in a well padded backpack, or even the original box!

    Slightly off topic here. (OK completely off topic) You should have seen the baggage handlers at Brisbane Domestic Airport the other day. The baggage truck rolled up to the conveyer belt leading into the belly of the Bombardier Q400 I was on. The baggage truck was level with the base of the conveyor belt so all that had to be done was push the bags onto the conveyor belt but no. They picked up every single bag about 1 metre, flipped it upside down and slammed it back down on the conveyor belt! I felt like decking the man when he slammed down my bag knowing that my Wii was in there.

    But my Wii did get back perfectly safe with no damage done too it.

    I have the G-Pack Carrying Case for mine. It is however slightly bulky but by far the best designed case i have seen it has a strapping system to hold your wii securely in place. and then has ample storage room for peripherals. sorry that i don't have a pic for ya but i am sure u can find some on google images.
