Has anyone travelled on Icelandair, bringing a bicycle helmet? If so, were you able to wear it or carry it like a jacket? We have done several cycling tours and have always carried our bicycle helmets in our carry-on as we were told to not risk having it in checked baggage--can't risk having it lost as you need it the first day.
Packing it in carry-on, while cumbersome, has not been as issue as far as the size and weight requirements of the airlines but I see with Icelandair the carry-on size requirement is over an inch skinnier--7.8" vs 9"--than the other airlines I have flown on. The bag might just fit in the sizer but it will be close. I have known other cyclists who, over the past year, have just carried their helmet with no problem but do not know whether they were just lucky?
Anyone with experience with bringing a bicycle helmet?
