Does everyone that flys to matches (mainly PRS) take their normal match backpack with them or do you have a different one for that purpose. I see airlines “technically” only allow packs to be carried on that are 22x14x9 or smaller. Just don’t want to get any surprises when I show up at the airport. I have several packs, an Upranger, A really nice T3 pack I normally use and a London Bridge pack. I can get a new pack if recommended so I’m not stuck with what I have.

Stone glacier avail 2200, mystery ranch scree 32 (Scree has conflicting dimensions on some websites, though).

Also you could consider some “regular” bags like Osprey Farpoint 40, Patagonia Black Hole 32, and Cotopaxi 35.

I’m interested to see what other people recommend!

I have a Eberlestock X31 Lo drag that I use as my carry-on bag, match travel or not. Perfect fit in the overhead bins. Rifle scabbard (folded in) is great for bulky items.
