    Brain Bag

    How do you use the built-in organizational features of the Brain Bag? Do you use Packing Cubes, Caches or Brain Cells, Snake Charmers, Organizer Pouches, Freudian Slips, Travel Stuff Sacks or other accessories for organization? And if so, which ones? Post your organizational strategies, hacks, and advice for using the Brain Bag here!

    Want some inspiration? Here's a few great posts about organizing the Brain Bag from around the Forums:

    I just did a 3 day trip to Los Angeles (from CT) using only my red Brain Bag. I did use two Eagle Creek Specter packing cubes - one to hold shorts/pants and one to hold shirts. Also another smaller Battle Creek packing cube to hold socks/underwear. In the left vertical zipper pouch was my black Halcyon Side Effect which I took out for airplane seat use. It held power cords/cables, earbuds, Anker battery, glasses, wallet, phone, etc. In the other vertical zipper pouch was my red Spiff Kit with toiletries. The top zipper pouch had gum and other pants pocket contents while in flight. The Brain Bag was perfect for this trip, and so wonderful to get off the plane and just go without dealing with baggage claim.

    Why am I the only one that has posted here?

    bitkmt, you asked: "Why am I the only one that has posted here?"

    I think it's because the Brain Bag is an older bag and so many have moved on to newer more "exciting" TB models.

    But, I have said it before on here and I will say it again: The Brain Bag is hands down the best TB bag made!! I have used that one bag to travel to Africa, China, you name it. No other bag was needed!!! The Brain Bag rules!!!!
