Misleading Carry On Bag Size
on July 6, 2014
This appears to be the same SET sold at Costco. I'm not a big fan of spinners, as the wheels seem to be very vulnerable, but time will tell. I have not been on trip with them 'yet'. I use a Tumi for my business travel carry on size.
The advertised size for the small 'carry-on' is MISLEADING: they say 21", but that is the INSIDE size, not the outside size. The actually size is: Overall Dimensions: 22.75" H x 15"L x 8"W. Delta list their max carry on as: 22" x 14" x 9". Most of the 'professional' bags I've bought conform to the Delta size, and never had a problem cramming it into 'most' overheads. But with the enforcement of carry on sizes - Let the Buyer Beware! I still think the 21" size stated is misleading - NO Airlines checks the INSIDE of your bag.
I'll be back after a few trips and report how these hold up.
