Flying and all your helmet

So how do you guys transport your helmet if you fly? I recently bought the Sportube series 3 and can fit mine and wife's boards w/bindings, boots, 1 pair of pants each and other accessories (gogles, gloves etc.) I can expand this thing pretty significantly so I think I can squeeze both our helmets in there (ear piece detached) but I hesitate to do that. We are going to Vancouver and Whistler for 10 days so I can put the helmet in our luggage and surround it with cloths or should I take it as carry on? The problem is its so damn big. Maybe we should wear it since both helmets have speakers

When I came home from Chicago last week I noticed several people carrying their helmets attached to their carry-on bag. It seemed to work pretty well for them.

Carry on for sure, if they want to hit you for overweight bags put it on your head lol. Ive heard of guys wearing their whole outfit onto the plane to avoid extra fees.

I was made to pull 4 t-shirts from my bag last month. I just carried them on in a duty free bag.

This is what I've done in the past, just hook it to my backpack as part of my carry-on. Plus, isn't that worth some bro-points? "Bro, you snowboard??"

Also, Southwest FTW. No extra bag fees for my board bag. Ever.

I hate having a carry-on so I pack my helmet into my suitcase, both filling it and surrounding it with clothes and stuff.
