        However, I need to make one correction to a posting here. I'm a former tour director who used to lead tours all over the U.S. San Francisco was a popular stop and I'd give city tours to my pax.

        I learned, that Lombard Street is the SECOND most crooked street in the world. The MOST crooked street in the world is.....Wall Street. :)
        nice :)

        actually, from wikipedia:

        "Vermont Street, between 20th St and 22nd Street in the Potrero Hill neighborhood and near San Francisco General Hospital, also tries to claim the "crookedest" title. It has seven turns instead of eight, but its hill is steeper than Lombard's."

          hi buzzard,

          i find that the aeronaut packs wider and flatter. whereas, the tri-star has a smaller footprint on your back but can stick out more if you really stuff it. this may be a psychological perception based on how the bags looked before you put them on.

          both the tri-star and the aeronaut sit very comfortably on your back.

            It looked pretty "fat" - more so than my Aeronaut when it's stuffed, that's why I wondered, but it's always hard to tell just from a picture and not seeing the two bags side-by-side. Thanks for your thoughts on the matter!

                Hey, don't we all! (Why do you think I don't post any pictures of me with my TB gear?!). But of course, I meant the Tristar - not you! :-) I look forward to seeing your TS/AER comparison photos.

                      hey Maverick what do you think of that gorilla pod....seriously how does it work. I am an advid amateur photographer beginning to turn more pro. I would like something like that to travel with cause I don't like lugging the tripod with me. I have a monopod but even that is a pain at times when traveling light.

                              The Tri-Star and Large Cafe Bag in the overhead compartment of a Virgin Atlantic Airbus A320.

                              The Large Cafe Bag can sit almost vertically with a Soft Cell holding a Macbook inside.

                                hi bluedenim,

                                i used the gorrilapod with the leica d-lux 4 several times on the trip. i used it sitting as a tripod sitting on various surfaces, including on the ground. i wrapped it around a railing at a pier near the ferry building. and it worked wonderfully each time.

                                they make the gorillapod in a few sizes, including one that works well with an slr and a larger slr with a larger lens. i haven't tried the larger gorillapods yet.
