packing for airport with kidsIs this what your house looks like when you are packing? I know my kids are always very interested in every move I make when I am getting ready to travel. It is hard trying to figure out what to bring much less how I will bring it. Traveling, especially with children, can be a huge challenge with all the restrictions that are in place now.  Carry-ons have to be certain dimensions, there are restrictions on how many carry-ons can be brought on-board, and liquids in carry-ons can be no more than 3.4 fluid ounces. I like looking for carry-ons that are compact, but have the ability to hold many things. The more I can bring on the airplane with me in one bag the better, that way I have hands free for the kids and hopefully avoid going through luggage pick up at the end of the flight. This eBag was so easy to navigate through the airport and down the aisle. The many extra features and handles made it a breeze instead of a hassle.

Weighing only 8 lbs, 11 oz, this bag is rated at almost all 5 stars in overall, appearance, durability, organization, and price/value. It is loaded with great functionality including a removable shelf, many compartments which are zippered and meshed, two removable fiberglass rods to provide a tip-free design, lockable D-rings on primary zippers discourage tampering, and way more!
