Search for the perfect carry-on

Guest Author - Ann Carroll Burgess

The Perfect Carry-on?
For years I have been searching for the ultimate carry-on bag for airplane travel, it should be not too big, but large enough to accommodate all the essentials of airplane travel. My perfect bag would carry the following:
Travel documents (boarding passes and identification)
Eye glasses
Pocket camera
Book, Ereader or ipad
Cell phone
Lipstick
A solution called the Scott Evest is the closest I have come to finding the perfect travel companion. The vest is a cleverly designed item of clothing with lots of pockets that nearly eliminated the need for a separate piece of travel baggage.
Prior to departing on a lengthy trip with several airport transfers I gave the vest a field test by running errands around town. I appreciated the pocket feature that included a key ring with a coiled tether and the eye glass pocket with an attached cloth for lens cleaning.
However, a deeper pocket for keeping a wallet would have been appreciated, as would have an adequate space for carrying medications.
There was also a cleverly designed feature to allow you to carry a water bottle secured in an upright position. However, since TSA regulations donít allow you to bring a filled water bottle aboard an aircraft this is not absolutely necessary. But for a day of sightseeing this is a great feature to use.
The vest is designed in a range of colors and sizes; my advice is that you might want to select one size larger than your usual size for maximum comfort.

After my field trial, I am not quite ready to abandon my carry on, but the vest has certainly kept my travel life in better order and simplified the screening process.
I am looking forward to more hands-free travel and have also found the perfect gift suggestion for the serious travelers on my Christmas gift list.
The Scott Evest is easy to find online and the shipping was fast, arriving in plenty of time for my trip. Give this hands-free carry-on solution a try on your next trip. Six airports on two continents and not a single difficulty encountered.
