    If I can fit it in, I try to bring a large Shop Bag in my carry-on. Then I put my backpack in it before stuffing under the seat in front of me. When it's time to deplane, I turn the Shop Bag inside...

    Historically I haven't seen a whole lot of white merino shirts, much less opaque ones. I tend to think that merino (of any color) will either be thin (and see-through depending on the color), or...
