Don't lose your lighter to airport security because you don't have the appropriate method of carrying it aboard the plane.

This case was approved by the FAA, DOT and TSA to allow you to carry a butane filled torch lighter in your checked baggage on domestic flights. The hard exterior of the Tranzpack contains a foam liner that will accommodate most torch lighters that will fit in your pocket.

  • Unscrew the top of the transpack, put your fuelled lighter in the foam, put the top back on and put it in your checked luggage. It is that simple.
  • DOT and TSA stamp and code numbers right on the tranzpack in case if TSA questions it.
  • Hard polycarbonate exterior with foam inside.
  • The foam liner has an opening that will flex to accommodate the size and shape of most pocket-sized torch flame lighters. The case is also waterproof and buoyant, so if you're traveling by boat, your lighter is safe.
  • As of August 4, 2007, the butane filled torch lighters are only allowed to be carried in checked luggage as long as they are in this TSA approved torch lighter carrying case.

3.0 out of 5 stars Misleading information from vendor January 18, 2010
By ChuckW
The vendor states in the ad, "Approved by FAA, DOT and TSA to carry a butane filled torch lighter to be carried on domestic flights in your checked baggage."

FYI, from tsa.gov:

Common Lighters - Lighters without fuel are permitted in checked baggage. Lighters with fuel are prohibited in checked baggage, unless they adhere to the Department of Transportation (DOT) exemption, which allows up to two fueled lighters if properly enclosed in a DOT approved case. If you are uncertain as to whether your lighter is prohibited, please leave it at home.

Torch Lighters - Torch lighters create a thin, needle-like flame that is hotter (reaching 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit) and more intense than those from common lighters. Torch lighters are often used for pipes and cigars, and maintain a consistent stream of air-propelled fire regardless of the angle at which it is held. Torch lighters continue to be banned.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent item for the traveling cigar smoker October 30, 2009
I travel quite a bit (mostly by air) and in the past I always brought my cigars, a portable humidor and one of my S.T. Dupont lighters with me on my trips. However, when the airline lighter ban started being enforced I made the decision to leave my treasured lighters behind. While in Miami I saw this nifty little case for sale. I was dubious at first but it has a sticker right on the outside of it that says:

"LIGHTER IN THIS PACKAGE CONFORMS TO DOT-SP 14327 AND MAY BE TRANSPORTED IN CHECKED BAGGAGE BY DOMESTIC PASSENGER AIRCRAFT"

Well, that convinced me to give it a try. When your bags are opened and searched the TSA leaves a notice (what I affectionately refer to as a "love letter") in your bag letting you know that it was randomly chosen for inspection. So far I have had my bag inspected dozens of times with my butane lighter safely stored inside the Colibri Tranzpack. I have never had a problem with it being siezed. I am aware that "torch" lighters are still banned, whether in a case or not, and I have never tried to pack one.

The Colibri is kind-of cool looking, not classy but interesting enough to have geek-appeal. Many of my friends have seen me pull my lighter out of it and they always want to see it and find out where I got it. I have to admit that I still don't travel with my really expensive lighters, it just isn't worth the risk, but for an everyday butane lighter it is perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "must" for every traveling cigar smoker April 11, 2007
I am a frequent traveller for business and I have to say this is an invaluable addition to my travel accessories. Regular lighters and matches just don't cut it for cigars. Now I can being my butane jet cigar lighter with me on business trips and vacation, allowing me to truly enjoy a good cigar at my destination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Money February 4, 2007

I was pleasantly surprised to see how well made this case is.

This would be a great gift for the traveling smoker.

Clearly marked for carrying a lighter in your "checked" luggage.

I will definitely buy more for gifts.

Great idea, well designed and built. This little tube makes a great storage unit for anything and everything. Great waterproof seals. I wish they made them in other sizes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great item but beware March 3, 2008
Colibri has done smokers a service with this nifty travel accessory but it's important to note one critical issue. TSA still does not allow "torch" style lighters to be carried in checked or carry on baggage no matter how they are packaged. So if you're considering packing that prized Colibri, Rhino or IM Corona for a trip down to Miami or out to Palm Springs foe a golf weekend, be careful. You could still lose it if TSA screeners decide to examine your checked baggage. This is a note I haven't seen illuminated in any discussion of what is otherwise a fine product. When in doubt always check the TSA website.

Dang this lighter case is sturdy. I imagine you could run it over with a truck and it wouldn't hurt it one bit.

1.0 out of 5 stars A waste of money October 8, 2013
My torch lighter was banned even with this case during a recent flight and I had to send it home via UPS. This doesn't work. You can take a zippo lighter anywhere these days even without the case, but not a torch lighter. Hence, a waste of money
