    Aeronaut 45 end pocket organization

    Hi,
    I just did my first test pack of my A45. I put my sandals in plastic bags in one of the end pockets, and next to them I put a #2 stuff sack containing a rain jacket. If I use an end pocket packing cube for the sandals, do you think my #2 stuff sack/rain jacket will still fit?
    Thanks!

    No A45 but I prefer to use plastic bags for shoes because shoes get things dirty easily. Bags are easy to replace and conform to the shoes for less space.

      I think that works as you can think of the packing cube as a luxury version of a plastic bag with zippers [emoji6] I always pack my shoes in a packing cube that I exclusively use for that purpose. If it gets dirty it is easy to clean with a brush or with water and soap.

        Greetings,
        The Tom Bihn packing cubes will squish and hold your shoes just like a plastic bag, but the Packing Cubes will last a lot longer. Everything that fit when you used the plastic bag will also fit when you use a packing cube. elisa

            I need a backpack with a separate pocket for a (lightweight) 13.5" x 8" x 4" item, preferably on the top. I was eyeing the A45 and when I open the forum, this topic is on the front page Would the A45 end compartment fit something that large?

              Greetings,
              How solid is your item? Is it a bit flexible or can it squish? May I ask what the item is?

              The dimensions of the Aeronaut45 end pocket are 13.4 wide by 7.9 tall by 3.1 thick. The fabric liner may allow for a bit more to be stuffed into that compartment, but a solid item might not work.

              A call to the fabulous customer service crew at Tom Bihn will probably help. elisa
