Since my last posting, quite a bit has happened to me and I needed to take some time off. Besides computer problems I have had some serious health issues which included hand surgery. I’m still recuperating and basically can’t type for more than a few minutes without pan and mostly with one hand.

Please be patient. I will be back soon.

Unfortunately, there is no consistency with the measurements.

However, regarding United’s size limits, you could take a look at the Tom Bihn Night Flight Travel Duffel. It was designed to fit United’s measurements. Or their Synapse 19.

Another is the Rick Steves Appenzell bag which is on sale for $40 for the next few days. It is technically slightly longer than some personal dimensions but it is soft sided and if not stuffed should be able to fit in a sizer.

These are just a few off the top of my head. I’ll see if I can come up with a few more but I have a feeling bags will almost have to be chosen based on the airline you plan to fly rather than one size fits all.

I have a question about a category of luggage that I haven’t seen get much coverage: small enough to fit under the seat in front of you.

With airlines increasingly flying with full overhead bins (so late-boarding passengers have to check even their carry-on luggage), or charging for use of the overhead bins (UAL’s new base fares), I’m interested in travel luggage which can fit under a seat.

Airlines and seats vary unfortunately so it’s impossible to define what fits under a seat. But a start could be United’s simple straightforward definition: it has to be less than 17 x 10 x 9 inches.

Fortunately I have several knapsacks that are small enough, and that I’ve been using as my travel luggage (when I can travel light enough to fit my stuff in). But they’re not designed as travel packs, so I wonder if you can do some articles on packs (I’m not interested in suitcases as I often walk long distances when traveling) that might be good?

E.g. I recently got an eBags pack which is designed to hold a laptop, with the laptop sleeve wisely put next to the body (rather than away from the body as with my Osprey Farpoint). A nice pack but it’s 19 inches long — but maybe I can nonetheless squish it under the seat, if the overhead bins are full? Or should I return it and get a smaller pack? My laptop is on the small side so I don’t need a full-size laptop sleeve — but is there a pack out there that has gone to the trouble to make a well-designed laptop sleeve, but deliberately made it on the small side?

Yes that seems the case. The change in page format seemed to kill the discussions that were happening. It is to bad because I got a lot from this site.

Are you saying to use an unlocked phone/tablet on any U.S. provider and t simply add a local sim card in the destination country? And does this make calls from/to that country free?

While I prefer to make bookings from a computer, I have used the hotels.com app, for example, to find a room when there was an unexpected overnight delay.

Comment on Getting Sick On The Road by travelmosafer http://1bag1world.com/2016/06/getting-sick-road/#comment-15174 Tue, 11 Oct 2016 09:23:56 +0000 http://1bag1world.com/?p=1927#comment-15174 I got sick on the road only once and unfortunately, that was the time I forgot to bring my medical kit. Fortunately, my friend who was my travel buddy that time brought her medicine and it helps me with my high fever. It was a lesson for me. If you are always hitting the road it is important to always be prepared.
