    WHAT FITS INSIDE THE LUMINARY?

    I just received my Luminaries today and thought this fantabulous backpack could use a new thread that was specifically for what fits inside it, AND how IT fits inside other things, since it is such a new bag.

    So this post answers a few of the questions out there and some of my own. See below:

    THE LUMINARY PACKED EMPTY, INSIDE AN A30 (WOULD FIT EVEN BETTER IN THE A45)

    THE LUMINARY ROLLED UP EMPTY AND STORED IN THE END POCKET OF THE A30


    One more thing I tried was to fit a small shop bag in one of the outside side compartments. It did not even come close to fitting, those pockets are pretty small. and not a lot of depth to them. Perfect place for a phone, several pouchkins, glasses or snack bars.

      Does a stuffed Side Kick fit in the bottom?

        @Ilkyway,

        My favorite color is Alphaviolet, but curiously when I was able to compare all three colors, the Cloud version struck me as very sleek and professional-looking, understated and yet almost industrial-looking, if that makes sense. It has a sheen to it (they all do) that I was not aware of until I had one in front of me, that just looks amazing in person.

        Then I started weighing in on how all three colors would go with my wardrobe, and realized that the neutral color would blend better than the other two colors. Since I have a cubelet in Alphaviolet, made it easier to go Cloud.

        The other thing I like about picking the Cloud color is that it won't get hot from absorbing heat like all my other black backpacks. For what I am going to use the Luminary for (city, sometimes in dressy clothing), that was important.

          @brucep,

          YES! A very stuffed halcyon SK will fit perfectly in the Luminary. However if you have a big water bottle in the front of the Luminary, it will show the outline of the water bottle, see photos.

            Sadly the answer to this question is not my phone in the side pockets...or at least not well. I have an iPhone 6+ in a protective but not bulky case (not the thinnest ever but not even close to an otterbox). I really dislike having my phone in the main compartment in a backpack and was hoping to put it in one of the small pockets. Unfortunately, while it does just barely fit (some finagleing is required to get it in) I worry that it's so tight that it may damage the bag or zipper over time. Now I'm torn over keeping the Luminary (the straps are super comfy) or waiting and hoping that a larger version shows up at some point.

              Sharing a photo of what I keep in my Luminary.

              I just recently purchased a Cloud/Viridian SE and that is my new FAVE color combination!

              I already had some AZURE accessories that fit right in. The SE fits brilliantly inside the top of the Luminary too!

                Are these sold out? I just went to the website after a long hiatus and see that they are in production but not available to order.

                  Hi Barks,

                  They are sold out right now, and production time usually says 2-12 weeks before they become restocked. However, that does not mean that one won't become available when it is put back in inventory if someone returns it, doesn't hurt to check stock! Also, you can sign up for re-stock notices.

                    Did you return the two you didn't want?

                      Yes I did, TB has a super easy return policy. For me, I needed to see the colors in person to decide and I was torn between those 3 colors.

                        I have to say I never considered it, but the cloud/viridian combo is outstanding. I am surprised this is not offered in more styles.

                          Hi! What diameter of water bottle fits in the water bottle spot? I'm waffling between a Hydro Flask regular or a wide. Also, is height much of an issue in packing the bag (considering 21 or 24 oz. if I go with regular. Thanks!

                            A 40oz wide mouth Hydro Flask will fit, but it's very heavy.
