How strict is Qantas re. boots?

Quick question about gear on a flight. Coming back from NZ with two sets of skis (not an issue, did that on the way here), but now two sets of boots. Space in my luggage means I can't really fit a pair in there, so my plan was one set of boots in my backpack, then just carry the other pair with me. Will they give me grief? I know the rule is one set of boots and skis per passenger so don't really want to show up the airport and get hassled

Carry on = 7kg, just stay inside this and you should be OK.

Make sure the boots do not smell of feet.

It does help to have them in a bag so the buckles & stuff do not catch on other folks bags and stuff in the lockers.

Though seriously I’ve only ever been asked once about the number of sets of gear were in my bag. That was returning from Japan with JAL. Was asked, replied 1 set. Small Japanese lady carted my heavy ski bag containing mine and 2 kids gear to oversize.

Assuming you are travelling in baggage class, I'd suggest it depends on how busy the flight is.

If its very busy they will look to enforce the 1 carryon/7kg/specific dimension
