    Great tips. I’d recommend packing cubes to help organize your clothes. This makes it much easier then rolling up your clothes. In terms of a daypack consider a daypack that can pack in on itself. My daypack rolls into a ball. This saves space in my carry on and allows me to whip it out quickly if needed. I use a Osprey Porter 46L as my main carry on pack. The bag has straps and “wings” to help it cinch down to fit into the overhead luggage. The final tip I’d like to add is get in line to board early! You don’t want to be late and miss out on the overhead storage space being taken by other passengers. Airlines may force you to check your carry on.
