Travel Product of the Month

My Favorite Personal Item to Carry On the Plane

eddie bauer backpackI like to travel light.  Whether I take a 3-day or 30-day trip, I always carry-on luggage.  In previous “Travel Products of the Month”,,I have featured two great carry-on rollaway pieces that are normally stowed in the overhead bin.  However, the airlines permit at least one personal item that can be stowed under the seat or in the overhead bin.   This Travel Product of the Month features a personal item that I take on every trip.
