View Full Version : 1 quart ziplock...how big?

I have sandwich ziplocks that are 18x15 cm (6"x5"), is that the "1 quart baggie" that I will use to fly? Or is it a different size? Thanks for any info!

Ziploc Quart Storage Quart bags are 7" X 7 3/4".

The quart size are slightly larger, but we have used the sandwich size with no problems...so you don't have to go out and buy another box (unless you want to).

I hate to keep harping on this but I'm going to anyway...be aware that there are some TSA people working the security areas that will not accept anything other than a qt. sized ziploc baggie. Some even go so far as to have the correct baggies there for you to use. But, most don't.
So...while some have been able to use sandwich bags, it is not what the TSA is asking you to use. Just don't want someone to come back here and scream because a DISer told them they could use a sandwich baggie instead of a qt sized one, and the TSA people took the stuff away...not a good way to start a vacation.

If you go the travel section of many drugstores or I think even Walmart or Target has them, they have Ziploc travel quart size bags in small quantities (something like 7 or so to a small, flat, cardboard container). They are really handy. Then you know that TSA can't complain about that because it says right on them "Ziploc Travel Quart Sized Bags." I tend to check a lot of my toiletries knowing that if I forget something or my luggage gets lost, they do have stuff for sale or soap, shampoo, etc. at the hotels. Then I can totally bypass the quart rule.

I bought a box of quart zip bags in the local dollar store.

I haven't yet looked, but, since I'm in Canada (metric), I'm thinking that something labeled "quart" won't be available. I am, however, flying out of the US to Orlando. Off tomorrow to scour the stores. ;) My 'sandwich bag' IS a ziplock, so I would hope that being a bit smaller shouldn't be a problem. Maybe they'll have the right bags at Syracuse airport.
