First trip with the Aeronaut(s). I ordered an Areonaut a couple of months ago and after receiving it Grandma decided she wanted one too. So, to try them out we scoured the web for cheap airfare and lodging in a city that offered great public transportation. We just got back after five days and are both sold on the Aeronaut as a "one bag" solution. We got on and off of buses and walked several blocks to hotels. No problem.

I did quite a bit of research before deciding on the Aeronaut and felt that due to the design it would "bulge" less (assuming a rounded shape when packed to the limit) than other bags. I was not disappointed. I used packing cubes from Ebag (http://www.ebags.com/ebags/packing_cubes_3pc_set/product_detail/index.cfm?modelid=13032) and a packing folder (http://www.ebags.com/eagle_creek/pack_it_reg_folder_15/product_detail/index.cfm?modelid=5356) from them as well. My whole bag weighed less than 20 lbs.

The Aeronaut does have terrific bulge control, especially if you use cubes. You experience matches mine exactly.
