# D&D 5EBag of Holding Question

Hmm - I'd read that as referring to the exterior dimensions. It's actually very ambiguously worded.
That's why there's also an image of it, which is a moderate-size satchel. It's definitely not a 4x2 foot cylinder.

That's the exterior space. It's bigger inside. That's the whole point! Polearms and multiple suits of armour are fine.
Nope. The interior is a cylinder 2' in diameter and 4' in height.

Im not too good at math so I could be missing something like multiplying by 144, but youre saying 64 feet cubed is 4 foot by 4 foot by 4 ft? if you have 64 cu ft, wouldnt it be 64 dived by 3 for a nice even space, be 21 per side, l x w x d?
It's not 64 feet cubed, it's 64 cubic feet. 4 x 4 x 4 = 64.

Then again, keep in mind the BoH is (I think) loosely based on Mary Poppins' bag; and she pulls out some pretty big pieces from that.
We all know Marry Poppins Isnt real.

It is easier to fit one lion in a Bag of Holding than 50 house cats.
Relatively.

I suspect in either case you'll just end up with a shredded, useless Bag of Holding and will yourself be in serious need of curing...

What if Jackson Galaxy was hiding in the BoH? That shows a farce.

The depth is specifically stated as 4 feet. That's its inside size, not its outside size.

Since its total capacity is 64 cubic feet, we can assume that its interior dimensions are roughly 4 x 4 x 4 feet, with a 2-foot-wide opening on one side.
I've always seen it, provided the weight and volume limits are vaguely followed, that the interior dimensions morph to whatever they need to be in order to hold what's being put in it.

It's a flexible bag into another dimension, after all, not a rigid box. If it was a Box of Holding then yes, the interior dimensions would be locked in.

I tend to agree. Hence the initial question, but where do you draw the line is what Im trying to determine, which on second look isnt that cut and dry RAW.
