I've been trying to find out if my bag will really be accepted on a connecting KLM flight to Prague. KLM just replied that it's up to the person checking me in. I have the Ebags TLS MotherLoad Weekender. It measures .5" off. This bag is listed compatible with KLM on Is this true? Looking for guidance. Thanks.

.5 off is probably ok. Sometimes they'll ask you to put your bag into a container to see if your bag is within their Carry-On size restrictions. With a soft body bag filled with clothes it's easy to squish the bag into the container even if the dimensions are a little off.

Hi John! My name is Van and I just purchased a Tortuga Outbreaker 35L. I'll be traveling to India later this year, but also want to do some more domestic traveling; quick getaways with my wife and I. I'm wondering if you could give me some more insight as to how this pack does as a carry-on? I'm new to travel backpacks' the bag looks to be well constructed and is comfortable to carry, but also seems large. I want to ensure that it'll comply with a wide range of carry-on standards. Any information you could give me would be helpful. Thank You!

Hey Van, I love my Tortuga and take it on a lot of domestic trips. Personally, I've never had a problem with it as a Carry-On but some airlines could be picky about it. It does seem very large when fully packed. My general advice is to under pack a little. If I really stuff my 35L full it won't fit into the Carry-On size things by the gates on airlines.
