Would the bag qualify as a carry on item on the airplane or is it too big?
This bag is 50 linear inches. Most airlines allow bags 45 to 50 inches, so it will depend on the airline.
I just bought one of these for my wife.
The label says that it's 20x15x14.
I measured hers and it is 21" long, 16" wide but the depth can be adjusted depending on how much you fill it.
If you fill it all the way, my wife's would be 13.5" high (depth).
So obviously the claimed dimensions are either off or there is a manufacturing tolerance.
the boot compartment is about 5.5" and the top compartment is about 8", totaling 13.5.
