Anyone use a large Kyss bag as plane carry-on?

The large Kyss bag is 18H x 20L x 6W. Airtran's carry-on dimensions are 24L x 16W x 10H.

Do you think it'll be okay since the total linear inches are smaller and it's a flexible bag?

don't know the answer but i intend to use mine for this purpose. i've only found one airline that has even checked the size of my carry on and it wasn't really the size they checked, it was the weight. i know they can but most often they don't.
let us know how you make out.

It will depend on 2 things.

#1 How full the bag is. If you can only put in stuff that brings it to the small dimensions you should be ok.

#2 and more importantly is the attending security personnel. It is at their discretion.

OH and #3....on the flight staff.

I have the medium one that I will be using.

I've used my large KYSS bag as a carry-on on several flights. If it's not stuffed full, you can easily squish it under the seat in front of you, which is what I do.

They do not have wheels. The bag itself is very light...lighter than my daughter's backpack for school. It will only be as heavy as the stuff you put in it.

I have used mine on numerous flights, full to the zipper (I normally stuff my large camera bag in there too) and have never had a problem.

Thank you for this post. I had never heard of a Kyss Bag and was really grateful to see what it was for traveling. All of the comments helped too.

After I saw a post on these boards I sprung for one. It will be great for the beach, at the pool but also for in stateroom and hotel rooms. We are staying at POP after our cruise and this will allow me to semi-secure some stuff that won't fit in the safe. (DSLR camera specifically). I know its not full proof but it is better than hiding stuff.

I got the black medium bag with a large text monogram on it and I LOVE how it looks. Its my initials straight across instead of the monogram with the last name initial in the middle.

Im really glad I ordered it and can't wait to use it in 70 days!!!!

What colors could you choose from for your monogram? And what color did you pick? Thanks!

I am really happy with mine too and I can't wait to try it out in two weeks

For those that carried it only the plane, was there any problem with security? My DH looked at it and asked if it would have a problem because of the long chain (and could that be a security threat)???

I hadn't even thought about it. But the chain looks easy enough to remove so I was just going to take it out and put it in my checked back for the plane ride.

I just laid my bag on the conveyor belt, chain and all, and no one said anything about it. Until they spied the water bottle that my DD had stuffed in there when I wasn't looking!

I kept going back and forth on monogram colors and finally chose white thread on black bag. I saw a photo on google images of that and thought it looked very classy.

I added in the comment section requesting a larger monogram and they were happy to do it. They have superb customer service.

I sent them an email after I got the bag telling them how happy I was and how I was going to let everyone on here know.

The responded with a very sweet thank you.

On a side note: I bought an organizer off amazon (I'll try to find the link and edit this to add). It is a great foldable insert that will keep my stuff organized. (I'm a bit of a organizing freak)
