Travel would be so much better if you didn't have to deal with the hassle of getting where you're going. There's nothing like the dread that comes with wondering if all your bags are going to get on the plane without costing you a mortgage payment ... if they've even fit.

That's why ATGStores.com is offering this handy luggage guide along with a few travel tips to help you keep ahead of the TSA merry-go-round (as opposed to the carousel, which invariably works much more smoothly.) We also offer a great selection of checkpoint-friendly travel bags and luggage of all shapes and sizes that can get you on the plane faster and perhaps even more cheaply. But first, a quick reminder of terms and special provisions ...

Definition of a "personal item" (this is an item permitted in addition to your carry-on):

General items you can bring aboard that are not counted as a personal item or carry-on bag:

  • A jacket or umbrella

  • Food or drink purchased after clearing the security checkpoint

  • Duty-free merchandise

  • Special items like strollers, child restraint seats or assistive devices like wheelchairs and crutches
