Sporting Equipment

Trust your gear in our expert hands.

From the recreational hockey player to the avid golfer, trust Porter to handle your equipment with the same care and respect as you would. Here’s what you need to know regarding the packing requirements and restrictions for your gear.

Sporting equipment guidelines

Sporting equipment is counted as one piece of your checked baggage allowance unless otherwise stated.

Most sporting equipment can be checked in or carried on board provided it is properly packaged and meets the size and weight restrictions. If you exceed the size and weight allowance, overweight and/ or oversized fees may apply.

Items above 32 kilograms or 70 pounds and/or 203 centimeters or 80 inches combined length, width and height will not be accepted for transport.

For more information on baggage allowances and restrictions, please refer to our Checked Baggage and Carry-on Baggage sections.

Some sporting equipment is restricted for safety reasons. If your equipment isn't listed on this page, please contact us to find out if it's permitted for travel with Porter.

Packing instructions

Items must be suitably packed for shipping. Equipment packaged without proper protection may be refused for carriage.

Porter is not liable for any damage resulting from improper or inadequate packing.
