    O. M. G.

    I have been waiting YEARS for this. Like, 6 years at least (it's all there in old posts). And a whole lot of travelling with bags that weren't quite right.

    Unfortunately the Tri-Star, with its radically different...

    My ideal is aeronaut organisation (flexibility) in a 40-41" bag, since as someone else mentioned there is quite a bit of space left over if you pack efficiently in the larger bag - hence a real need...

    p.s. I'm 5' tall but, as you can see, am solid. I think the 22" bag is actually ideal for me, size-wise, but it does end up too heavy for cabin baggage if packed fully. Bring on the Tristar!

    Good luck. I'm shorter than you are, so I understand the difficulty! but I've managed to make a 22" long bag comfortable, it just needs a lot of fiddling. And the more weight on your hips the better.
