ARE LEATHER DUFFEL BAGS ALLOWED ON PLANES?

There are a lot of things going on when you decide to take a trip. It can be a stressful time. You have to plan your trip, buy tickets, decide what to pack and well.. What to pack it in?

The most durable bags are made from the best quality of leather. Leather duffel bags are the best bet to last you a lifetime. But, are they even allowed on planes? Yes! You need to follow these simple guidelines to pick the right cabin-size duffel bag!


Leather duffel travel bags need to be a specific size

Let’s keep it simple. The most important thing to know is that the leather duffel bags need to be a specific size for them to be considered a travel bag. Don’t a large sized leather bag to fit everything. It may fit everything but what’s the point if they won’t let it fit on the plane?

Your leather duffel should be at max -

Inches: 22" long x 14" wide x 9" tall

Centimeters: 115cm (56 x 36 x 23 cm)


A leather bag  needs to be under a specific weight

Every flight allows cabin-sized only up-to a certain weight. You cannot take a big leather bag and hope it’s allowed. There is a limit to how much weight is allowed per passenger. Most airlines limit you to take 18kgs of cabin-sized baggage on your trip. You shouldn’t pack your luggage heavier than that. A large duffel bag may be able to carry a lot more but don’t take that risk. It’s best if you limit yourself to an 18kg bag; the standard airline baggage limit.

Check with your airline before you board just to make sure.


A travel bag must fit in the overhead or underneath the seat in front of you

That’s pretty self-explanatory. Your travel bag MUST fit in the overhead of the plane or underneath your seat. Every passenger has a limited space allowance by the airline. Make sure you don’t bring in bulky luggage.

Save yourself the trouble and stick to the size and weight mentioned above.
