30 Things For People Who'd Rather Cancel Their Flight Than Check A Bag

Emma McAnaw / BuzzFeedEmma McAnaw, my colleague, owns the bag and raves about its quality. Here is what Emma McAnaw has to say about it: "I use this bag every time I travel, and I never, I don't mean NEVER, check baggage. This bag was big enough to carry four sweaters, DOC MATERENS, all my underwear, and toiletries, as well as four other items. Although I did wear the same pants four days, I didn't feel like I needed any more room. Spirit allows me to take this, yes."Promising review: "I love the bag for travel. It's small enough to be used as a carry-on bag. I have even taken it with me on my roll-on and had no issues on American or Alaska airlines. Although it is a bit too big for your second personal item, as long as you don’t stuff it too much, it should be fine. It has pockets on all sides, a nice shoe bag, and a small zippered pouch in which I keep my lululemon travel scarf. I receive many compliments on the grey neoprene. It can pick up dirt, so be careful not to put it on the ground.
