Choosing A Travel Bag



Hi, I’m James. There is nothing more frustrating than packing all your travel items into a small travel bag and then getting to the airport and finding out that your idea of carry-on luggage is different from your airline’s idea of carry-on luggage.

As a regular flier that happened to me a few times, and I saw it happen many times to other unsuspecting travelers in airports around the world.

So started as a place to store information about what different airlines around the world deem to be carry on luggage. But as time passed this website evolved beyond that.

When packing you are forced to decide what is essential and what you can leave behind. Over time my packing light mindset started to spread into other areas of my life and naturally I wrote about those topics too.

I no longer write everything myself, became too popular for that. Our team now covers a broad range of topics but the goal is always to sort the wheat from the chaff to create concise web content that helps our readers.
