A while back, My Vacation Lady posted about the new size limits for carry on luggage for most of the domestic airlines. The new size limits are now:
22 inches x 14 inches x 9 inches including wheels and handles.
We finally found something that was light enough (about 7 lbs) and seemed sturdy enough to work.
So here it is– not black so easy to spot (if we had to check it). 20.5 ” x 14 ” x 9″. It has tons of pockets. Says it can hold up to 10 shirts, 2 toiletry bags, 4 pair of shoes (they haven’t seen the size of Mr. My Vacation Lady’s feet:) ), 4 pair of pants and 2 coats.
Somehow, I doubt we’ll get all of that into it but it does have a clip to hang a suit jacket and it does expand by another 2 “.
Mr. My Vacation Lady will be trying it out on a business trip soon and we’ll report back to you.
By the way, its a Delsey Helium Sky Carry On Trolley Case.
We found it at Bed Bath and Beyond. Not dirt cheap but it is does the job, I’m happy.
We’ll report back to after the trip.
