Product Description

Don't lose your lighter to airport security because you don't have the appropriate method of carrying it aboard the plane. Use the Colibri Tranzpack to avoid losing your favorite lighter in such an unfortunate and preventable way. 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.

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.

NOWHERE DID IT STATE HOW BIG THIS THING REALLY IS !!!!
Seriously !! I DID NOT expect it to be the size of a beer can( almost ! ) !!Wish I would have read ALL the reviews because It does say in the D.O.T report that it expires in March 2012 as another reviewer stated.It all says that this thing was accepted for checked baggage but I think for carry on it will still be O.K. Hope I am not wrong or I just blew about 20 bucks to not take my lighter with me.
The unit itself is pretty tough though and I know I can find alternate uses for it.

Also: ALL the stickers that WERE on it were just hanging out
in the bag.So it was old or it was stored somewhere VERY HOT!
It really SHOULD STATE SOMEWHERE(seller,site or on the unit that it did expire........Just sayin....

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

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.

I purchased this lighter case because I got tired of having to leave my favorite lighter
home because the government won't allow you to carry on those type of devices anymore.
To prevent any confusion on their part, this is an excellent way to transport my lighter
and be mindful of the safety and security issues associated with air travel.

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.

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.

The unit is well-built however, all the stickers were off and the tip of the case where you hang the strap was broken. I hope this works in Sept when I'm flying with a torch lighter and cigars. We shall see.
