    Recently I did an overnight work trip to Arizona and a 4day/3night vacation trip to Oregon. Both times I carried my Smart Alec and used A30 packing cubes to compartmentalize my clothes.

    I have the older style solid aether end cubes & a small cube... and one of the new small laundry cubes.

    I packed one cube flat in the base of the SA and because of the shape of the bag, I can put a laptop behind it (with or without a TB cache) and small items in front of it (like hard case for sunglasses, mini toiletry kit, etc.) On top of the first cube, I put two more of the cubes on their long ends and there's room for more stuff on top.

    I've only used the small laundry cube these two times, but so far I like it.... I could see easily ONLY using small laundry cubes, since I tend to cluster like clothing items together and that way I'd always having the clean/dirty of each type still together...

    I couldn't find this thread, so I started a new thread with my comparison photos of the TB A45 Laundry Cubes vs. Eagle Creek Specter Clean/Dirty Cubes.

    So the brand new model of packing cubes, released just three weeks ago in carbon, are being retired already? Or does this announcement only apply to the old solid-style aether carbon packing cubes?

    Carbon was never my favorite color. It was just a black hole where things disappeared. It's one of the reasons I didn't like the travel cubelet.

    BUT NO, Canyon is discontinued, too. I LOVE Canyon.

    I like my carbon cubes, but my favorite colours include all forms of grey and charcoal, so there you go!

    I am very sad that Canyon is disco'd, I was hoping that they would sneak it into a LSB run as @Darcy alluded might happen with the ballistics... The Mars Red/Canyon and Olive/Canyon are very pleasing colour combos to me.

    Carbon, nooo! I was waiting for a Carbon small cube for the Western Flyer! I don't really like how any of the other Aether colors look with Wasabi Halcyon.

    I know! I like the cheerful colors, but there should be a neutral choice as well. Wasabi, violet and island are pretty strong colors.

    Also wondering, since it looks like carbon aether is on the inside of my beloved Travel Cubelets, what that will be replaced with? The thing I like about the Travel Cubelet is that you can choose an exterior color that you like, and not worry about it being available only in some jarring combination. [cough] Blue/Grass [cough]
