What baggage can I take on United Airlines?

I am traveling on United Airlines and I looked up what they allow, but the website won't open on my computer. Can anyone tell me what the carry-on restrictions are? How big can the bag be and can I take a purse as well?

    You are allowed one carry-on to be stowed in the overheard compartment and one personal item to be stowed under the seat in front of you (so yes, a purse would be fine for your personal item). Here is the carry-on baggage information taken directly from United's website:

    "United Airlines will permit one bag plus one personal item (see below), per customer to be carried on the aircraft.

    The maximum combined linear measurement (length + width + height) of carry-on bags must not exceed 14 inches x 9 inches x 22 inches (23 x 35 x 56 cm) or 45 linear inches (114 cm).

    Please note: All carry-on items must be stowed under the seat in front of you or in the overhead bin. Items may not be stowed in the seat back pocket. Any item in excess of carry-on baggage size or allowance requirements as listed above will be checked to your final destination and may be subject to applicable checked baggage fees.​

    Any item that is requested to be carried inside the cabin of an aircraft and is determined to be acceptable, but is so fragile or bulky that a seat is required, will be considered cabin-seat baggage. United Airlines will allow a customer to purchase a ticket for a cabin-seat baggage item so that the item may be carried on board and transported in a seat.

    In addition to one carry-on item, you may bring one personal item, such as a shoulder bag, backpack, laptop bag or other small item (no larger than 9 inches x 10 inches x 17 inches, or 36 linear inches)."
