"Get one and carry it! They are great. Like a woman's purse, they don't count as a carry on."
My original question was along the lines of if you are wearing a fanny pack, can you still carry two pieces of carry on luggage. The above statement indicates a womans purse is not considered one of the carry on's, so a lady might actually "carry" three items? Actually, its hard enough getting myself down the aise of a typical aircraft without having to juggle anything I am carrying, but since everyone else does, I will, and it is necessary. I just don't want to be stopped and have someon e say...."You have to take that off and put it in your bag". Loses its convenience entirely.
