So yesterday I booked my flight to spend the Christmas holidays with my parents and grandparents in Phoenix (the parents were already going--I decided to join last minute.) I'm in a bit of a conundrum on picking which of my daily bags to use as my personal item on the fight. I have a Super Ego, Cadet, and 13" Ristretto. If I take my Super Ego, I know that I'll be able to carry both my computer, my camera (in its super crappy insert) plus a bunch of other stuff if I so need so. The downsides I can see are, I'm guaranteed to have no leg room if I can managed to fit it under the seat infront of me. I also might have trouble passing it for a personal item? (If anyone has used theirs for flight travel as a personal carry on, please let me know.) The Cadet would match my lovely Cardinal Aeronaut (which I'm finally going to take the tags off of now.) Downside with that would be I wouldn't be able to carry my camera in the Cadet. (I'm thinking about packing my camera for the actual travel in one of the end sections of my Aeronaut inside of its super crappy insert.) My Ristretto would be the most minimalist option out of all of them with basically just carrying my computer.
Too many options for me to decide. Opinions welcome!
