    We'll have our first sample from our factory within the next two weeks.
    Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

              very nice!
              is it compatible with Aeronaut's packing cubes?

                You can use Aeronaut Packing Cubes with the Western Flyer, or there will also be Packing Cubes specifically designed for the compartments of the Western Flyer that help maximize efficient use of space.

                  Actually, yes! The front panel is going to end up being reversed in the final bag. The bag pictured is an early prototype.

                    Interesting pictures. It will be neat to see how this turns out and how it will work compared to the Aeronaut.

                    Quick question - will it pass as personal carry on item? I never did find the specifications for a personal carry on item but typically the rules are pretty loose for US flights on large planes (in my experience). It's hard to tell but the pictures appear to suggest the WF will fit under a seat without too much problem.

                          According the blog entry

                          "The Western Flyer is a small carry-on bag similar to the Aeronaut in function. It's volume is about 25 liters or a little more than half the Aeronaut's volume.
