Good backpack for under $60

I carry a lot of books. tablet, mishmash of pens and phone around and am looking for a nice backpack or rucksack. The key is that the shoulder straps have to be nice and padded. A friend recommened the Bag of Holding but reviews have said the straps can be a bit sketchy. (I don't know.) Not interested in messenger bags. If you have one you would recommend that sits nicely on your back and doesn't dig in, please let me know. I hope to find it via Amazon/SuperSaversShipping but beggars can't be choosers.

What's the optimum carry-on rolling bag size?

On a recent trip from the US to Canada, my girlfriend's carry-on rolling bag was taken away from her on some flights, while mine was not. Strangely, they were picky on the A320 flight, but not the flight on the smaller Dash-8 propeller-driven plane. So, what's the optimal size for a carry-on rolling bag? [more inside]

Looking for a convertible carry-on bag.

I'm looking for a carry-on bag that meets the following criteria: convertible, small enough to carry on a plane legally (US), all black, compression straps of some sort, and no wheels. Lower or reasonably priced options are preferred (~$80 or less is ideal). I'm considering the Rick Steves convertible carry-on, but am open to other options. [more inside]

Please don't touch my jerky

I am flying on frontier airlines to Indianapolis in July. I won't be checking anything, just bringing a carry on bag. I was hoping to bring some vacuum sealed packs of jerky from this store with me on my carry on bag. Is this a problem? Are they going to make me open up my packages of jerky in security? I am going for a long visit and need my stuff to stay fresh so I don't want to unseal it. So basically, can I bring sealed packages of beef jerky/nuts/berries on an airplane?

Carry On Metafilter

Are any of the Carry On films any good? If so, please tell me which one you feel is the best, with your rationale for why that is. Because I would be using this question as a possible springboard to watching one or more of the films, I'd like to request that you not include any of the actual jokes in your answers (e.g., "'Nurse, where's this man's tits?' Classic line!" None of that, please).

Backpack or messenger bag? And what sort of suitcase?

I need two pieces of luggage for a trip to India/Singapore/Australia:
  1. A main suitcase that will go in the hold, so weight/size not so important. What features should I be looking out for? I figure wheels are a must, but what sort of wheels?
  2. A piece of hand baggage (carry-on). Here I'm torn between a rucksack/backpack and a messenger bag. What are the best brands of each, and which should I choose?

Carry-On Pets - how strict are airlines?

Bringing Pets in Airplane Cabin: I know that each airline has its limits on the dimensions of the under-the-seat carrier and combined weight, but how strict are they? Do airlines actually measure your carrier and weigh the pet plus carrier? Or just eyeball it? I'm wondering particularly about Northwest and American Airlines. Any horror stories or warnings appreciated.

Help my baby not get broke! Delicate musical instrument as airline baggage.

The great musical-instrument-on-plane paradox. How do you prepare (what case[s] do you buy and what strategies do you develop) when you need to travel on many different kinds/scales of airlines, with a delicate wooden instrument that MAY or MAY NOT be allowed as carry-on baggage (depending on circumstance, how full the plane is, and how much or little the inspectors care that it looks large, solid and "middle eastern")?

Feline Move Post Coast-to-Coast

I am moving from the West Coast to the East Coast and I'm wondering what the best way to move my beloved cat. I was originally going to bring her on my flight as a carry-on, but I'm thinking that the plane ride may be too long in a small pet carrier. There is also the option of checking her in as luggage, but most airlines don't allow this in the summer months (i.e. the time I'm moving). Any suggestions? Shipping is also an option; any suggestions on airline-friendly kennels that can attach water and food? Also, to sedate or not to sedate?

Flying with a Guitar

In about a week, my boyfriend and I are flying from Chicago to Boston. He plans to play with his band while he's there, and so would require his bass (electric). This is not something we would want to check, for risk of damage or theft. But I don't think that sort of thing is allowed as carry-on. What can we do? I know that a lot of locked items are forced open nowadays for security checks. Does anyone have any experience with transporting instruments via air? We're taking ATA by the way.
