I noticed this has gotten quite popular over the years. Passengers are saving money with certain airlines by bringing an under the seat bag! I have seen some YouTubers pack and I must say, I am impressed!
These bags have to be of certain dimensions to qualify. So double-check the measurements on the Airline’s website before purchasing! I have heard some passengers mention Spirit Airlines putting there under the seat bags in a crate to make sure they fit, or else they will be charged as much as $90 to carry on the bag at the gate.
If you are a smile packer, this may work for you! Not only is it efficient, but it can roughly save about $80 round trip on average with most airlines!
Reasons why you should consider getting an under the seat bag:
I have two bags I love and use! Sometimes, I do carry just an under-the-seat bag. If you know me, you would know I HATE checking in luggage. I just find it to be a nuisance. Typically, I am running late for my flight or two hours early and I do not want to risk standing in a checked bag line. Also, when I arrive at my final destination, I like being able to get straight to customs and proceed to transportation versus waiting on my checked bag at the carousel.
Also, I like packing lights in general!
You would be surprised how much these bags fit! I would say personally, they can fit about three to four days (max) worth of clothes!
Here are some of the under the seat bags I recommend and why:
