Odd question, I'm flying next year, and...

Odd question, I'm flying next year, and I'm just curious, is this kind of bag "carry on" compatable??

I have never flown before so I don't know aha



Not an odd question at all...we get lots of them regarding what will work for carry on. Specifically, no, this pack will be too big. Now, as a general guideline for you to use in your selection process: The majority of airlines use a standard of your carry on luggage not exceeding 45 lineal inches. That means that your bag, when measured in length+width+height doesn't add up to more than that. Sometimes you can fudge it a bit, and often, domestic flights and international flights might vary a little, but not much. It is always best to check with your specific airline to be sure. So, when checking out backpacks, duffels, or luggage, it's good to know their dimensions and to balance them with your needs.

Also, since you've never flown before, checking bags always adds another level of pain in the butt...from start to finish. Usually not a big deal, just something that adds some time to getting in and out of the airport.

If you see anything else that you have any questions about, don't hesitate to ask. Someone is always happy to help. Good luck. Bon voyage.
