Personal items

I need confirmation about Southwest's current policy about carry-on items. If I have a carry-on that is no larger than 24" L, 16" W, and 10" H, can I also have a backpack that is no larger than 16.25" L, 13.5" W, and 8" H? Please advise me on this matter.

Per the policy you are allowed one bag and one small personal item. Personal items must fit in the 16.25” (L) x 13.5” (W) x 8” (H) space under the seat.

 

So, a backpack should be fine. You cannot have a third item, though, like a purse. A purse would need to be inside the backpack.
