It's happened to the best of us. You pack away your limited edition Van Halen 1991 Tour Zippo in your checked baggage for a flight and arrive at your destination to find it missing. Those airline security scum stole it for their own collection and used a technicality to get it. Unfortunately, they are right. Fueled Zippos are not able to fly unless in an approved container, even in checked luggage. The Otterbox CargoCase is a cheap way to make sure your prized Zippos never get stolen. It is waterproof and airline-approved for checked luggage. Also, it is pretty cheap, $12.95 from Otterbox directly. They may have Van Halen, but now they will never get my White Snake Zippo!
