    Brain Bag Accessory

    Not sure if this has been suggested before, but on occasion I'll use my BB as an overnight bag while my Empire Builder holds the gear. Top opening zippered clothing cubes that fit in the laptop compartment of the BB would be a useful accessory, whether it's a large single cube or two half size cubes that fill the compartment. These could also isolate soiled clothes, etc.

    I guess it would be similar in size to the XL Soft Cell but with the Large panel being the one that opens.

    Is this making sense at all?

    I asked about this, because I often pack a change of clothes in by Brain Bag to switch from work to school.

    Tom says that "either main compartment of the Brain Bag can accommodate one large or two small Aeronaut Packing cubes, with room left over at the top of the bag for a Snake Charmer."

    Hope this helps!

    I second that I have the Convertible Backpack Packing Cube and it fits well into the Brain Bag back compartment, I also have a Quarter Convertible Packing Cube.
    I know it fits but I haven't used it yet, in my Brain Bag for packing clothes, silly me.
