???

Coming into America from an anonymous friendly hebrew country.

Said anonymous friendly hebrew country and national airline have no issues with this.

But what about US Customs....

I doubt you'll be able to carry it on, so you'd definitely want to invest in a proper transit system for it.

In checked luggage it should not be a problem. Customs may ask about it - but it isn't illegal.

Just no evil terrorist, America-hating, Osama Bin bottles of water.

Kind of along the same topic: Would someone actually wearing a parachute be allowed to board a commercial flight here in the states? What if it was a carry on item? lol

Didn't have any problems although it was all domestic flights.

You wouldn't be able to properly secure your seat belt with your seat in its full and upright position, and it won't fit in the overhead compartment.

I'm 99.9% sure parachutes are a legitimate carry-on item, I've heard of several people carrying them on. Would you trust the baggage guys to not damageit? Plus, even if it wasnt damaged, imagine the hold-ups it would cause if it were accidently deployed.

ETA:
USAirways:

Parachute equipment
Parachute equipment will be accepted in the normal free baggage allowance in lieu of a piece of baggage. One item of parachuting equipment consists of:
One sporting parachute and any additional items (example: rigging, etc) securely attached.
Sporting parachutes are acceptable as carry-on baggage provided the parachute and its accessories meet carry-on size limitations and does not contain compressed gas cylinders or other such items classified as dangerous goods.

What if you wore a kevlar vest while traveling?

Despite it not being illegal, you know the TSA goons would hassle you for it.

I'd just wear it.
