Hi - Hope someone has an idea here - grateful for any help .
I have Camino experience BUT for the first time i will NOT be checking my backpack into the aircraft hold . Main reason is that i'm catching 7 short plane rides across europe & Uk and including the Camino Ingles on my way - so dont want to check my backpack in and out several times . ( and its a LOT cheaper :) ) .
My question is - will the airport security allow walking poles ? I have normal flip-lock and smaller fold down Z poles if a smaller "In Bag" pole would make them more acceptable .

Hi Ian,
Welcome to the Forum!
This topic has been covered many times before and usually ends in an argument :). I will post some links here to other threads for your reference, but for now I will lock this thread.
