    They'll just require certain items to be gate checked or put in the front "closet". Or someone at TSA is a fan of the movie Shaun of the Dead.

    Very nice. Any chance of having the bag name included as well - like TS for TriStar, WF for Western Flyer etc.? That would make it easy to dig into our pile of packing cubes to find the right one.
