Does 26 IN BAG work W/50# LIMIT?

Jump to last reply

I am planning my Yellowstone trip - the baggage part of the trip. I realize my former style of travel will not work - one giant 30 IN bag and one 20 IN rolling carry on (filled with real size toiletries - not those tiny trial sizes) with the present weight and toiletry restrictions. My 30 IN bag filled with clothes only is over the 50# limit. I do not want to pay $50. for the extra weight. My SO has convinced me that lifting that really big, really heavy bag is too hard anyway. And, I have to agree.

So, I am planning to check two 26 IN bags. Does anyone know if a 26 IN rolling bag will be okay weight wise - not over filled to an extreme degree.

Anyone know of a brand & style that is light weight (for a rolling bag), has large zipper pocket inside (on the inside of the lid) and has two exterior pockets?

I looked for years to find my perfect 30 IN bag. It is a few years old, no longer made and has the above details (except the light weight empty thing). I love it.

When shopping online (my preferred method for this trip) lots of the bags I've seen don't have an inside photo or description.

Any help or ideas appreciated.
