Brita water botles and airport security
I'm thinking that going through the x-ray machine the Brita water bottles look like a cylinder with a smaller cylinder inside.
I've had a similar item go through security in my carry on. It was a percussion instrument - cylinder shaped with little beads inside. It caused quite a stir, with them having to open my bag and search through it - very cautiously, I might add!
Anyway, what have others experienced? Have you packed them in your carry-on luggage or checked bag?
I guess if they were going to go through my bags, I'd rather have them do it in front of me.
Anyone care to share their experience?
