It depends a bit on which Canadair CRJ will operate on the route. The first sector will be from (at a guess) Milwaukee to what destination, please?

You can take your standard size roller bags and carry-ons, but you have to gate check them. Nothing bigger than a shoulder carry laptop bag will fit in the overheads. The under seat space is actually bigger. You basically drop them in the jetway and ground personnel put them in the cargo hold. At your destination they are returned to you in the jetway. Change jetway to bottom of stairs if you board from the ground.

Same warnings about valuables and fragile items in gate checked bags as regular checked bags - don't do it. Still safer since they go through far fewer hands from the jetway to the cargo pit and back.

Air Wisconsin only flies the CRJ-200 which is perhaps the most uncomfortable jet flying, and what I based my post above on. Your pain medication of choice an hour before the flight is a good idea to ward off the back pain the low and cramped seats provide.
