Black/Steel/Wasabi Super Ego, Cardinal/Steel 15"/13" Cadet, Cardinal/Steel Aeronaut, Olive/Cayenne 13" Ristretto, Camera Insert/Outsert, Horizontal Freudian Slip, 13" MBA Cache, Brain Cell for 13" Macbook, Steel Snake Charmer, FoT/FoJ pouch, Organizer Wallet, and more organizer pouches than I can shake a stick at.
I had to slim down what was in the cadet but I did get it inside the Tristar. Only the laptop and the cache and a Freudian slip in the main section of the Cadet with some minimal accessories and nothing but a pair of shoes in the Tristar main section. Also a 3d Clear cube in the front zippered pocket for toiletries.
The cadet takes up a LOT of space.
Same thing with a filled medium packing cube in the front next to the shoes and a medium filled packing cube in the back section with the tie down straps...
The Cadet gasping for air as it tries to escape the Tristar.
So I would say it sort of works. A three day trip would be tight in the summer, and really tough in the winter but is probably doable if you are disciplined...really disciplined.
All of these beautiful, useful items! I want it all- in every color!! Congrats on the Cadet, jeffmac. The navy is beautiful too. I'll be curious to hear how you like it as you use it. Be sure to update us!
Hum? Thought provoking, and this opens the possibilities / benefits of getting TWO Cadets - one in each size, and I suppose that means I'll have to get another Mac too, to fit into the smaller Cadet.
Oh and a winning lottery ticket too.

Thank you! Looks perfectly acceptable to me. That tristar rocks....and so does the cadet.
It's a Schwinn Jenny. I love it! (This is a reply to backpack's question about which bike I got.)
Bummed about the current lack of ultraviolet.

I love my Aeronaut, Tri-Star, Western Flyer, Cadet 15 Brain Cell, Imago, Medium Cafe Bag (daily bag), Swift, Side Effect and accessories (snake charmer, packing cubes, stuff sacks, pouches, lights, keystraps, etc.) Eagerly awaiting trays and Canine Citizens! Picture to come soon.
Anyone have the little Cadet (the 11/ipad version) yet? Thoughts on it?
I've got a Horizontal Brain Cell for my 13 inch Dell Latitude. Does anyone know if this will fit in the Large Cadet? Any additional room for a leather portfolio (pad holder)?
I could go bigger like a Zephyr briefcase but trying to stay slimmer.
BTW, I have a Co-Pilot that I absolutely like and use a lot of the time I'm not taking a laptop. I take a large expandable Tumi briefcase when I take the laptop but still have trouble putting the Brain Cell into it.
i am totally loving my new forest/steel cadet!
