Recently i went on a trip, and saw many angmohs using duffels as carry-ons. Got interested and did some research. Some popular ones are patogonia black hole 60, eagle creek cargo s and osprey transporter 40.

Read that even though these bags have 1 or 2 dimensions that are slightly larger than the allowed size, we can still pass since the bags are not hard-sized, so can squeeze abit as long as we don't pack them too full.

Currently i'm using a classic cabinzero 44L, but I'm inclined to get another that is packable, and only use it when i have more stuff to carry.

Leaning towards osprey transporter 40 for now. Anyone have any experience with it or on other carry-on bags?

yeah as long your bag can be collapse it should not be a problem until they start weighing your bag. Some countries are quite strict on the carry on weight so do take note.

I've tried using duffel bags for one- and two-day trips, but I still find myself coming back to my Briggs & Riley Baseline even for short trips. I've got the domestic carry-on size; never had a problem getting it in the overhead, even on little regional jets.

Use this as a reference.

Regional SEA domestic flights are still pretty relaxed.

Whats the problem with the Cabinzero 44l? 44 liters should be plenty if you pack light.

Cos sometimes i travel with check in luggage, so i will carry a small bag. But if i buy more stuff, e.g. at the duty free, it will be nice to have a foldable duffel to store in.
But of course the cabinzero is more than enuf if I'm doing carry-on from the start.

Yes. European domestic is a pain. Few budget airlines only allow 5kg handcarry

Basically, if you carry:
1x 15" / 17" laptop + the charger
Your passport, wallet
A few items and what's not
+ The weight of your bag or backpack.

It's 5Kg liao

Anyway, recently had some promo codes from Planet Traveller, so i hoot a 40L osprey transporter 20% off.

Used it for a short trip, pretty good. Would have been better if there is a bottle holder and more back and shoulder cushioning
