Surprised there isn't a thread on this, but is it simple to take bouldering mats on easyJet?

From this page: http://www.easyjet.com/en/planning/baggage it seems like the limit is only on weight and not dimensions (I think most airlines limit both). So it should be fine...?

My hunch is you'll have to book it as sports equipment..... For the cost of that I'd look into renting one.

I'm never going to fly easyJet ever again after years of being ripped of by the robbing ****s.
I've found that you can get a ba flight for the same or very little more and you get no problems with baggage and bigger seats. And free drinks.

But did you have a problem with taking a bouldering pad?

I've never had any issues with bouldering pads on easy jet, it's well under the 20kg limit and well within the size/volume restrictions.

Yeah, just don't tell them it's sports equipment! I pack my rucsac inside the pad (with a couple of 8' slings to ensure it stays shut)and put all the heavy stuff in my carry on bag.

Done this to CDG on easyjet about 8 times and never had an issue.
