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]

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]

We're in the market for new luggage, and we'd like a set of 3 suitcases that will last!
Our options are below, and we're limited to Macy's or Bed Bath and Beyond.
What's the best brand? What brands have you all had the best luck with? What brands should we stay away from? [more inside]

- 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?
- 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?
Starting a new job which will require lots of short (i.e. 1-2 nights) travel - what's the best carry-on option that will handle a suit and tie? Is it advisable or should I just bite the bullet and check my suit? [more inside]

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.
