I did some sleuthing for you - as I was also looking for an upgrade to my normal travel bag. Searches for sample case, catalog case and pilot case led to some promising finds. However all of these are designed to hold documents, so don't expect a lot of utility out of them. They do fit your requirements - they open from the top, are wheeled. The largest I ...

A 2012 Conde Naste Traveler article notes that Statistics on baggage theft are hard to come by; the airlines don’t compile them, and if a journey involves multiple legs, it can be difficult to prove where the theft occurred. The TSA, which collects information on lost property, reports that between 7,000 and 14,000 claims are filed with the agency each ...

"Good wheeled backpack" is considered an oxymoron by most serious backpackers, myself included. Wheels add extra weight, rigidity, and break-ability to what otherwise could be a perfect bag. However, if health concerns dictate the use of wheels, there's not much that can be done about the requirement. That doesn't mean there are products that will actually ...

The following is "common sense" based on my own travels. Officialdom may decide otherwise. If I was doing this I'd try very hard to get an official answer to this in advance and very preferably in writing. I certainly would not trust only the advice of well meaning people like me on an internet site :-). If you have a Singapore visa and the two ...

Eagle Creek makes quite a few wheeled backpacks, that come with a suspension type strap and waistband set up. One model you can remove the harness system to reduce the backpack's weight if you are traveling somewhere that you won't need the straps. And contrary to backpacker purists beliefs, are comfortable to carry as a backpack. They are not form ...

Unknown, but: Long ago I locked a suitcase full of electronic gear when travelling SF-London. The customs men came out and asked for the key. Thoughtful of them - a broken lock would have been within the rules. Alas, the case also held a large container of dairy whitener placed in it during packing. It has a clip shut spout for normal use AND the whole top ...

The answer is no. Your one ‘cabin bag’ covers a bag, laptop case, brief case, handbag, bumbag, rucksack, carrier bag or wedding dress carrier. Motorcycle helmets are also allowed as/within cabin baggage (providing they follow the relevant size dimensions). Please note that all these items will be classed as your one cabin bag.

I wouldn't worry about it. While carry-on item sizes can be enforced pretty strictly, nobody pays attention to personal items unless you're clearly going above the limits. But if you want to play it 100% safe, just leave enough space in your carry-on to stuff the laptop if you need to. For what it's worth, I usually travel with a carry-on rollaboard bag ...

Straight razors are allowed in checked-in luggage all over the world. Anyway, they are not allowed in hand luggage as they can be used to harm someone. I will list three sources that regulate this, TSA (US), EASA (EU), IATA (the rest of the world), these rules are not enforced all over the world, but as long as these three organizations have the same rules ...

Luggage storage is now a big business, and it's not hard to query it, just google LUGGAGE STORAGE SERVICES followed by place where you are going. It's impossible to give you an exact guidance since it varies on location rates...

There are no rules against wrapping your bags with plastic film. If TSA decides they want to inspect your bag, they will cut the film off and will not re-wrap it. So it is up to you to decide to pay to have it wrapped and hope TSA doesn't cut it off wasting your money. If you are flying in from an international destination and connecting/rechecking to a ...

Here's a list of stores at LAX: http://www.lawa.org/tenantLAXResult.aspx?airport=4&category=38&sindicator=qs Based on the name, "Luggage Store - Before TSA" (Ticketing Level) can probably help you out. Depending on your budget there's also a Coach store in the Great Hall as well. I'm sure there are other stores that sell luggage as well but I can't ...

Assuming you have to recheck luggage (if you have a single ticket, check with Icelandair before you do anything rash!) it will be cutting it rather close. It will probably take at least 20 minutes until your bag is on the carousel, longer than that in busy periods. The baggage reclaim is in Terminal 3 for all international arrivals, and you then have to ...

As an Indian passport holder, you would not be allowed through immigration unless you apply for and receive a visa in advance. (see here) And if your friend does not have a valid ticket, then they can't get past security. So, unfortunately, it seems like you will probably need to bring your bag with you to Malaysia.

I have one of these (or see here also) , seems to be exactly what you're looking for. Its main selling point is the garment bag that you can wrap around it. But whether you choose to use that or not, the top unzips completely and you can use it for access inside. Actually, if you have wrapped up the garment bag around it, the top is the only way to get ...

A wheeled duffel bag may suit your purpose to a degree. Most are designed to be laid down and opened, but because of their soft sides and wrap around zipper, they can be opened part way while sitting upright and items retrieved or put in. But like most top loading bags, the stuff at the top is easily accessible, the stuff further down requires grasping ...

@mkennedy already quoted easyjet's policy but I can add a bit of personal experience. I fly regularly with them and I have often seen other passengers being asked to fit a laptop bag or a handbag in their carry-on, lest they have to check it in. Sometimes people get away with a small purse or a plastic bag but they really mean one bag in total and seem to be ...

If it's all one ticket, you won't have to worry. When you check in at Perth airport, they should check your luggage all the way through to Leeds, as it's one ticket, but check with them that they do. The baggage tag receiptss you'll be given will then show them as going to Leeds. On arrival into Heathrow, follow the Purple "Flight Connections" signs, then ...

There shouldn't be a problem from a customs and immigration or airline handling perspective. Just wipe it clean and call it a day. Worse things have spilled from customer luggage (dirty diapers, colostomy bags, etc. etc.). However..... if it was DEET based, then you should know that DEET will weaken nylon and other plastics. You should keep an eye out for ...

The answers are yes, no, depends on the airport. I have never been on this particular route, but by international agreement airports let transitioning passengers stay in the airport until their next flight. Do not try to leave the airport, you need a visa for that. Your third question is the tricky one. You may (but maybe not) need to pick up your bags ...
