    Aeronaut 45 and Night Flight Travel Duffle Go to Puerto Rico

    Just returning from a 5-day trip to Puerto Rico for an academic conference. I have been going to this conference for 12 years and this is the first time I ever managed to travel carryon only. Here are my packing lists:


    Left/bottom pocket:
    CQPC with non-liquid toiletries
    3-1-1 bag

    Main compartment:
    Large A30 packing cube:
    2 dresses
    1 skirt
    2 tees

    Small A30 packing cube:
    3 short-sleeve cardigans (turned out to be one too many. I never wore the third. But I was gladI had them in the FREEZING convention center).

    A45 TLSS w/ underwear, camis, socks, PJs

    Size 1 TSS with Starbucks Via instant coffee, tea bags, and corkscrew (never know when you will need that :-)

    MacBook Air

    Water bottle

    Travel yoga mat

    Mini resistance bands

    Size 4 TSS w/ 2 pair sandals

    DLBP -- for day bag @ conference

    SSB -- for shopping/toting towels to beach

    LOP with papers for the conference

    Plastic grocery bag w/ water shoes & flip flops

    Right/top pocket:
    A30 end packing cube w/ sneakers
    Size 1 TSS w/ hair brush and mini lint roller
    2 small bags coffee (the place I work at has its own blend, so I am bringing coffee for my friends)

    Left pocket:
    Books (2 guidebooks, 1 novel)
    Moleskine notebook
    3 small bags coffee (see above)

    Main compartment:
    NFTD packing cube w/ bathing suit & cover up
    Size 3 TSS w/ workout outfit & socks
    MOP w/ headphones,cables, etc.
    SCB to use as day bag

    Right pocket:
    TT w/ meds, gadget stuff
    Size 1 TSS w/ pens, ibuprofen
    iPad mini
    COW w/ travel ID
    Boarding passes

    The bags worked out fabulously! They were full, but I was still able to get my fleece/scarf that I wore when leaving into the NFTD as well as the couple of small things I picked up in PR in the bags for the trio back. So I cruised past all the cruise folks waiting to check in and went right to security :-)

    No pics of the packed items, but here are the bags packed and ready to leave. Click image for larger version
