I packed this in my bike box on an air trip to Vancouver, BC. It is build in such a way that it is still a floor pump that can push a considerable volume of air into the tire like a larger floor pump. And yet, it is compact enough to fit in a travel box and not take up a lot of space (relative to a regular size floor pump). The quality of the components and material is excellent. Very well-built. If there was one small fault I could comment on, it would be the length of the hose. It is a lot shorter than a normal floor pump. But, I just rotated the tire to a position where the hose could reach. That short length could be considered a feature, in that it helps reduce the size that has to fit in a travel case. Overall, I would highly recommend.
