Swissgear Pilot 20 Carry-On case + MacBook Pro 17″

I just wanted to post a quick note on my blog about this because I tried to Google it while I was in the store and couldn’t find an answer. Hopefully this helps someone else out there. A 17″ MacBook Pro…I dunno what you Mac geeks call ’em – the one with the aluminum finish and slightly rounded corners, but not the fancy new aluminum block  body and glossy screen. Yeah, that one. It will fit into the laptop pouch of a Wenger Swissgear 20 Pilot Carry-On bag. Just barely. It’s a squeaker, but you can get the 17″ MBP in and out of this pouch without tearing or modifying the case. It’s a tight fit, and you might not be able to do it quickly while everyone on the plane is waiting for you to take your seat, but still…it works.

I will be traveling a lot for work soon, to exotic locales, and I wanted to be able to do it without checking luggage. The Pilot 20 should be an excellent option.

Update: The newer aluminum unibody MacBook Pro 17″ also fits well into the laptop compartment of this excellent bag.

    Have you taken this bag as carry-on in the last few months? I have the same bag, and it’s bigger than Delta’s SizeCheck unit that’s 22″x14″x9″ and the bag is 22″x14″x11″. I was made to check it on a us air flight last year. I can’t decide if I should try it with Delta or if I have to buy a new bag that’s 2 inches shorter.

    Interesting. I haven’t run into that problem yet, but I haven’t been on Delta recently. Thanks for the heads up!
