    Wow! WF is a fantastic under seat bag!

    I've seen pictures of it before, but a fully packed WF still leaves room for a messenger bag under the seat in front of me!



    I was about 1000 miles short of continuing with Silver Elite status and worried about my bag getting taken so I one bagged it, but there is easily room for more.

    Because I'm short, I don't need the legroom and the WF is an awesome footrest for me. Since I packed my laptop on this trip, the WF was the better choice over the A30. Falling in love with TB all over again.

    Omg! A TB siting!!! I think she's on my flight to Orange County. Looks like a steel MCB!

    ETA: she's going to Fort Meyers.

    That was me a month ago, right down to the color of the bag! I agree; the WF makes an excellent traveling bag, under-the-seat bag, all-in-one bag! I actually put mine above my head simply because I actually had room for it above me in the flight, and all the nasties on the floor of airplanes makes me shudder for my sweet bag, but if I'd needed to, I would have put it underneath me. There is plenty of room!

    Love love love the Nordic! I actually thought I might give it up because I hadn't used it since I first acquired it, but I'm feeling the love now.

    I usually stow my WF in the overhead because I typically have another bag for computer, etc. (either an Imago or a Pilot). But once I was on a flight and there was no room in the overhead for a violin, so I volunteered to take my WF and put it under the seat. Everything fit perfectly and I got to a help a violinist!

    I'm constantly amazed at how much stuff I can fit into a WF.

    Pokilani (and others) - I hear you!

    Despite the WF's sibling, the TS, checking in at an additional 1" in each dimension, underseat is my preferred stashing place even on relatively cramped flights to Asia. I personally hate having to wait to get into the overhead section.

    I'm 6'1" and have enough room to place my feet one on each side. It's a little "cozy" on less spacious planes, but manageable!
