    Hmm, now you've got me wondering if I need a SCB (I nearly got one instead of the MCB)! Though I might hold fire* and see if TB produces a larger SE, nearer the PCSB in size.

    For my upcoming trip, I'm using a small recycled PET shopping bag to marsupial my in-flight necessities in my WF (there's a PCSB in my latest order, but it's not due to arrive until next month). I'm going to try out the double-carabiner trick with it, as I hate it when bags slide under the plane seat and you can't reach them with your seat belt on!

    Collections:
    Work EDC: SE + S19
    Leisure: SCBs, FJN, Swift, lots of YSSs
    Travel: WF + Pilot or SA, with SE/SCB
    General organisation: More pouches, stuff sacks and cubes than you can shake a keystrap at!
    Favourite TB colours: aubergine, forest (sniff!), linen, wasabi, UV
    Hoping for: A new dyneema colour for YSSs; a Linen Side Effect; the return of Portable Culture!

        I'd buy a SCB today if I knew I could fit SE and kit in it. Maybe another small thing or two. Anyone know if that's do-able?
        Thanks,

          Apparently you can fit the SE vertically into the SCB - I went for the MCB as it fits horizontally.

            Moose, you can fit the SE but it takes up nearly all the room. Could slip a paperback and a small OP or two if not too full. I think I remember pics of the SE in the SCB and the MCB somewhere...can't remember the thread. I will try to get a pic of SE in the SCB in the next day or two. Tomorrow is my son's bday, so busy busy!

              Moose, I did a photo yesterday with the SCB and a SE in it. I do not have the Kit though. You might want to look here: http://forums.tombihn.com/photos-vid...collors-2.html #22

              Hope this helps a bit.

                I decided to use 2 double carabiners to connect the 2 horizontal loops at the top to the o-rings at the side of my Side Effect.
                I also used 2 gatekeeper clips to connect the o-rings in the S19 to the loops on my Side Effect to prevent sagging and to distribute load.
                Not sure it's any use though.

                A little thought crossed my mind when doing this though.
                If TB would either:
                A) Add a couple of vertical loops to the inside of the S19, positioned where the o-rings inside the S19 are,
                or
                B) Add a couple of horizontal loops to the back of the Side Effect, spaced the same distance apart as the horizontal loops inside the S19,
                then all that would be needed would be a pair of gatekeeper clips and the Side Effect could be elegantly integrated inside the S19, much like how the Smart Alec Modular pockets are attached.

                Loops could be added to any of the 3D Organizer Cubes, and inside of any suitable bag to make this work.
                The infrastructure for this already exists in the GateKeeper Rail system, just have to expand it further for use with more TB gear.

                  There's another way you can distribute the load of the attached pouch or side Effect a little better through the loops, and that's by passing a handle loop through the two webbing loops at the top, then securing the pouch to the loop with either a Double Carabiner Clip or a Mini-Carabiner. You can either use handle loops with snaphook ends or with o-Rings, depending on how you want to do the attachment and how much distance you have between the o-rings on the Pouch and the secure points.

                  Here's an example picture with a 3D Organizer pouch that I took a few weeks ago:

                  I actually like to use Double Carabiners, but this shows a way to do it with a mini Biner (of the sort also shown inside the Indigo 3D Clear Organizer Cube, along with the Double Carabiner)

                  The handle loops can be threaded through the webbing loops of other bags, too, like the Pilot (which I experimented with back in February -- a good way to secure an old Breve for iPad, so it can easily either be swung out to access contents or unclipped and removed from that bag).

                  Using the handle loop distributes the weight a bit better, and lets you clip in punches of different length and still reach the o-Rings without pulling too much on the connection. There are also some cases where you can use the slider on the wrist strap to make adjustments.

                  I don't have a picture easily to hand with the Side Effect mounted this way in my Synapse 25, since that's the easier spacing to accommodate with the handle loop arrangement. You get some additional flexibility in connection distance with the Double Carabiners by the ability to swivel the top and bottom loops, which is one of the reasons that I like them as general purpose connectors.

                    I do something similar in my S25. I use a 3D Cube and a short key strap. Works like a charm. I will be trying g it with a clear 3D Organizer Cube. It's a great idea. Thanks moriond.

                      That's brilliant! Thank you, moriond!
                      I'll try it as soon as I get hold of a handle loop.

                      Will also try Moose's variation, but I think it would need a little more work on my end, the short key strap's shorter than the handle loop while the Side Effect's slightly longer than a 3D Cube, isn't it?

                        Yes the SE is a bit bigger. I tried the SE with a longer key strap and the sbiners. The SE was a fit to heavy to suit me. I was using a cordura and ballistic SE. A dyneema one might fit the bill though.

                          This isn't a TB bag in another TB bag but today I was changing up my luggage patterns for work travel and I found that the Aeronaut PCBP fits perfectly in a carry on Rimowa (I think it's the Salsa Deluxe carry on).

                            I'd like to report success. The clear Organizer Cube is a bit wider than the dyneema one. I left the short key strap in place and put a swivel s-biners on each end. That was just enough extra length to have the clear organizer fit perfectly. I really like having sn extra pocket, one I can see into is even better.

                              The Snake Charmer fits inside the bottom compartment of the S25 perfectly. It is perfect for that, in fact.

                                I recently flew with my brand new BB (love it sooo much!!). Not needing a laptop for this trip, out came the cache from the back compartment. In went my copilot filled with the in-flight essentials for myself and two children: ipad, mini, kindle, headphones, splitter, water bottle, first aid kit, notebook and pens, small AAA flashlight, and a few other little bits. Dopp kit was tethered and placed on top of the CP in the back pocket. Front pocket contained a full change of clothes and everything necessary for the beach since we were flying to miami and suspected, correctly, that we would arrive before our room was ready.

                                On the plane, I pulled out the CP and dropped it under my seat and stowed the remainder of the BB in the overhead.

                                It worked great! I loved the smallness and organization of the CP during the flight, along with the extra protection for the electronics in their caches.

                                We checked a bag for our clothes, but I certainly wouldn't have needed to and don't plan to in the future.

                                I'm sold on the marsupial method!
