The Kelty Flyway Backpack encourages fast travel with its lightweight and efficient design so you can get the most out of your weekend, both on your way to Jackson Hole and during extended day hikes or quick overnighters in the Tetons once you're there. This backpack owes its versatile appeal to Kelty's Lightbeam fixed suspension system that includes an HDPE framesheet and an aluminum stay for direct load transfer and light support. Dynamic Airflow covers the back panel for maximum breathability, and AirMesh makes sure the tops of your shoulders and lower back stay dry during the hikes to the cabin. The waist belt tucks away when you don't need it, and Kelty's Scherer Cinch helps push the majority of your load's weight on your hips for your comfort.

The Flyway's hybrid access allows you to get into the main compartment through the top or the back panel. This pack also features a padded laptop sleeve, two zippered side pockets, one large front pocket with organization sleeves, two water bottle pockets, a daisy chain, and a separate storage for dirty clothes or shoes. The Flyway includes a travel pack cover that protects the shoulder straps when you take it with you on a weekend flight to see the folks.

Will the side pockets hold a 1 quart nalgene water bottle and still be able to zip up all the way?

will this pack fit in an airplane overhead...

will this pack fit in an airplane overhead compartment or under the seat?

Best Answer

Depending on how you have it packed, I would think that it would be too large for sitting underneath the seat, but that it would fit fine in an overhead compartment. The typical measurement you want to keep in mind for airline carry-on baggage travel is 45 linear inches, meaning the addition of the length, width, and height. In this instance, the linear inch measurement would be 49 linear inches, so I believe you should be able to squeeze by. However, every airline is different, so check that measurement before flying to see if you'll be in egregious violation; some of them have allowances as low as 40 linear inches!

Hope this helps.
