Hi.  I live in AZ and will be in NH for a week.  I know that some people have received the newer, smaller vest and wondered if they might have their bigger vest available for me to borrow for the week.  I would use my own tubing and actual vest.... I just need the machine.  If you have any other suggestions on how I can get my hands on one I'd love to hear them!  Or if you've traveled with your own and could guide me as to how you made sure it was cared for, I'd appreciate that too.  I'd love to take my own, but am very nervous that it will get damaged in the process.  Any help would be great.  Thanks!

Bit delayed with my answer here, but I bought a Turtle case to protect mine - it had foam that I cut to the size of my machine, and while it is a large case - my vest has travelled all over the US with me (michigan -> Oregon -> BC) both via air and ground (road trip!). And its still working just as good as when I first got it :)

Hope this helps!

I'm not sure how big the vest machines are, as we don't get them over here. But I managed to get away with having my nebuliser as hand luggage 4 years ago when I flew from UK to US.
They let me have more hand luggage than usual because of all meds and neb. That way I could keep an eye on everything and knew nothing would go missing. It had been organised with the airline in advance so there was a note on my ticket.

Hope this helps in some way. I'm not sure how bad security and stuff in, and whether it's loosened since last i heard about it.
