I'm a 15 year CPAP user who travels quite a bit, nationally and internationally. Like many of you I've converted to carry-on-only mode of travel. My carry-on is the amazing Aeronaut--simply a brilliant bag for all of my needs. My AEIOMed Everest 2 CPAP machine with humidifier, measures 5" wide, 7" tall, and 6" long. I absolutely HATE carrying it in the CPAP bag, but love carrying it in one personal item bag. Through the years I've experimented relentlessly with all kinds of luggage to do this. While I haven't done it yet, I plan to carry the CPAP in the bottom of my new Smart Alec and tuck my Co-pilot lengthwise on top of it. The math works, but here's my goal: Aeronaut plus ONE personal item that contains my CPAP and other stuff.
Two items only...even though the airlines allow the CPAP as a separate item.
How in the world do the rest of you CPAP users configure your gear for carry on only? Thanks!
