    Yes, there is an industry built around tobacco and pipe pouches.

    Many companies make pipe bags which will let you carry your gear. Check with the online pipe retailers under Pipe Accessories. You'll find everything from very cheap vinyl items to fine leather goods from all sorts of manufacturers from Peterson to Castello. Check here:

    The key thing to remember about most bags is they are smaller than they seem so err on the side of going bigger than you think you'll need.

    Here is a gentleman Ultramag recommends who makes very find pipe bags from small pouches for daily use to large bags that hold many pipes.

    I am traveling in UK right now with a pipe. My meer is in its case. Each of five tobaccos is in a ziplock and then all Baccys are in a bag together. Then that bag is in another which has matches a tamper and cleaners. Checked bag. Zero problems.

    Re: Travel with pipe tobacco

    I know I am pretty new to pipe tobacco and smoking, but from some of my more experienced friends I heard the pipe tobacco leather pouches work well, and put the tobacco in the ziplock bags first. I use mason jars in a small lock box I got in a giveaway.

    Re: Travel with pipe tobacco

    I just returned from dragging my pipe & tobacco through Germany with no problems. Pipe, cleaners, & tamper in a leather pouch and EMP & Nightcap in the tins they came in. Everything traveled just fine. I'm more of a cigar smoker, but find that pipes are easier to travel with. I was hoping to pick up a CC or two to smoke while there, but it was a business trip & I never found the time. I did find a note from TSA saying they searched my checked bag, but nothing was disturbed. Maybe they saw the pipe on x-ray and that my flight was to Amsterdam & thought the tins might be full of something else? Anyway, no problems.

    Re: Travel with pipe tobacco

    The physical challenges of travelling with a pipe are low. Pipes are pretty robust and removing the stem will prevent risk of breakage in anything but the most extreme of cases. Tobacco doesn't suffer from being knocked about so that's no worry. The custom pipe-bags that several have mentioned will organise things and are attractive to boot. Things are not the same for cigar smokers where damage is a real issue.

    With all the talk about drying tobacco before smoking, I'm surprised that much thought needs to be put into this side of things. Dryer is better, isn't it? Seriously, as we are not talking about keeping tobacco for years, but rather days or weeks, any plastic bag will be more than adequate.

    Even for International travel,taking supplies with you may not be needed at all. Most countries have some tradition of pipe smoking. Granted, things are pretty bad in the UK, at least in the sticks, with regards to getting decent pipe tobacco locally. But a trip to London (or any similar large city) could be seen as an opportunity to buy a pipe locally and get some of that harder to find tobacco. We even have pipe cleaners here .

    Duty Free limits on tobacco could be a bigger issue if you are on an extended trip. For example, the limit on tobacco from outside the EU into the UK is 250g. Easily smoked in a month or less. As far as "being questioned" is concerned, you simply can't argue with Customs Officers. The powers that they have in the UK are simply frightening. I assume much the same elsewhere. UK Customs and Excise have a friendly portcullis as their logo. Most comforting. Take what you can afford to lose.

    Personally, when I travel with a pipe, I take a pouch of tobacco (enough for a couple of days), a few pipe cleaners, a disposable lighter, and stick a pipe or two into my pocket.

    (Anyway, getting on one of my many hobby-horses, isn't pipe smoking a hobby and not a habit or - shock horror - an addiction? I don't take my stamp collection with me when I go on holiday...)

    I have a bag from the local Army Surplus store. It holds a couple pipes, two tins, Czech tool, cleaners and a few boxes of matches. Takes up very little room in my carry-on. If I were going on extended holiday (more than two weeks) I would probably transfer my weed into baggies so that I could fit more into it.

    You're smart. I went camping and had a rampaging bear run right through my Danish numeral cancels collection. Last I saw of it, it was heading back into the woods with a 1851 2 Skilling, cancelled in Hamburg, stuck to his butt...
