    Hi,

    I also use the outer Tristar pocket for umbrellas (wet or dry) when I travel. I also tend to stow a folded shopbag there, for easy access (not in the snap pocket per se, but in the zippered region). If I'm traveling somewhere it might rain, I stash a light shell jacket in that pocket instead, which, together with the umbrella, handles most changeable weather conditions).

    hi folks,

    you could attach that carabiner instead to the handle on top.

    Very inventive! Note that the label isn't designed to support weight - so it may break/be destroyed if, for example, a water bottle is dangling from that carabiner. We definitely would recommend NOT doing that: we would have to charge to repair the bag in that situation.

    flitcraft: That's a great use for the water bottle pocket!

    Open pocket on the Western Flyer - a hack!

    Here's a little hack for the Western Flyer (in backpack mode) to make use of the open pocket. Slip a carabiner through the conviently-placed Tom Bihn label, and hook up your umbrella cord. The umbrella could work it's way out, but because the cord is attached it would only extend the handle - and then swing down to hit my legs!
