The Levi's L Pack | Black |Levi's United States (US)
IIRC, that bag is 'small' enough for Spirit (my least favorite airline, and I travel a few x / week).
smaller than 18"x14"x8" but... DO NOT over stuff it!!!!!

for Spirit... I dress in 4 sets of clothes (like everyone else).

You ARE NOT allowed to use overhead space, (unless you PRE pay for it, before departure date / off airport)

I ONLY take Spirit for their "Low Fare Club" such as $19.90 for a 2.5 hr flight

You recognize the flight attendants... they are wearing the parachutes and sitting in the exit row.

They are the rudest persons I have met on an airline, and your pilot will enamor you with his LACK of ability to communicate / speak english.

Oh well, just carry some insurance, your demise will be FAST! (Granted no crashes YET! (I am amazed)). Good luck... as mentioned... it is CHEAP!

Spirit is fine for shorter flights. I always pay to carry on a bag. I never had an issue with them. I did a 1 1/2 flight on them to Myrtle Beach. It was basic but fine.


I would not do anything longer than that but it got me to where I needed to be.

Why would you even need a loaded gun on an airplane full of people?

It is pointless to buy expensive luggage. It will get as beaten up as the cheap stuff. I get mine at TJ Maxx.

You missed the part about similarly unarmed people as well.

Because the gun nuts have convinced their followers that life threatening danger exists everywhere. Going to the bakery to buy a cake? Gotta take your loaded gun. Some have gotten to the point where they can't relax unless their gun is physically on their person every waking hour.

Sierra Trading Post (same parent company as TJM) has a lot of the same inventory, and frequent 25-35% off online coupons.

Flying used to be a pleasure. Now, it's a real pain.
