    Packing for a conference in NYC

    Here's my Tom Bihn layout for a NYC conference. I have a Ristretto for my 13" Air, but I actually prefer the horizontal layout of the Imago. I put my Air into a Cache, which I can remove from the bag and carry around the conference.

    Of course, packing cube and organizer pouches, all of which go into the Aeronaut. I'm getting to the age, however, where I may have to leave the Tom Bihn fold and get a rolling bag. I do wish Tom would do something for us traveling senior citizens.

    this looks very compact and lovely. May I suggest that all this will fit quite easily and well into the Western Flyer and that is a lot easier to carry than the Aeronaut? I finally never bought the Aeronaut cos it is too big for smaller folk, and for those of us who are not in our 30s or 40s even anymore!!! I like the shape and form of the Aeronaut better for some things, but I have been ridiculously pleased with the WF for most times --except when I have to travel for more than a week on business and have to carry more "outfits" than I normally would. But the stuff above would easily fit....
