This looks to large to check in for airlines - Do they consider this oversize????
It's close. US Airways considers 62 linear inches to be oversize and this is 62.5". Delta starts at 63". Jetblue and United at 62".
You could probably get away with it unless you really stuff the bag, but it will also be easy to stuff it until it's over the weight limit as well.
Consider leaving the industrial-strength hair dryer at home.
