Size

GoRuck GR1
Spirit and Frontier are both 18"x14x8, and there are lots of bags that fit these dimensions, probably the most popular being the Topo CorePack and the GoRuck GR1, both of which are 18" tall. But JetBlue's limit is 17"x13x8 (43.2 x 33 x 20.32 cm). Neither I nor anybody else know how strict they're going to be about it, but I try to play by the rules. I've got a GR2 and I don't think I could make it a full inch shorter just by underpacking, so I assume the GR1 would be similar.

It ain’t cheap, but it will definitely last. It looks just as good ...

I like double reassurance
Used it on my Osprey ATMOS 50Liter (size large). I purposefully ordered the larger size so it could also cover my tent that I keep on the external bottom of my pack. It worked perfectly. Was hiking along the AT when Tropical Storm Alberto came in, this helped keep it dry, (still use a contractor tra...

Hiking

GoRuck GR1
I currently have a Goruck GR1 that I love, but I feel like I don't really benefit from the clamshell opening. I mainly get around by train and on my bike, so I rarely have the time and space to lay my pack flat. I got my GR1 because I needed one versatile pack for EDC, light travel, and everything else.
