Putting the contents into a plastic laundry bag was simply a minor inconvenience. I do think this incident will "matter" to others when they select their "personal item" for Frontier. As I said before, I'd go for a backpack.
I'm actually looking at buying a backpack to use as a personal item on Frontier. Are they especially strict with backpacks as personal items?

Clearly, one of the massive hiking backpacks wouldn't qualify, but will I get hassled for a simple backpack with a change of clothes, a laptop and a few extras? My goal, of course, is to take ONLY a backpack and no additional carry-on.
