    @gulfcoastgal I didn't get a chance to post this earlier, but I totaly love the pattern of the scarf in your picture (post #306) and the way it matches the Turquoise Little Swift on your shoulder! Great color combinations with the black.

        @Ilkyway, @Pokilani, @Orangeboys, I think that when @brendabethman talks about a "problem" that she means something like @Moose's reference to Clearing out and a possible problem in that earlier thread. Personally, I liked the responses from @icebeng and @taminca to the posted pictures:

        Just my opinion. YMMV

          Yeah! Totally cool! I was wondering how the 2 of you tell the Aeronauts apart before I saw those handles!
          Are they comfortable? Do they come in smaller sizes?
          It would be great for the people who wanted more padding on their DLBC's handles.

            Yes, this is EXACTLY it. In fact, @gulfcoastgirl's photos are making me think I need an A30 in black dyneema. But where would I store it? ;-)

              @brendabethman @taminca had some great answers to where you could store everything in the pictures in her Proof of My TB Obsession thread.

                Two choices
                Stored full ready to go
                Or flat flat as only dyneema can..
                ours are in the linen closet
                Empty the dyneema just disappears and take up very little space
                Kinda magical

                  TB accessories : scarves Talbots The blue print one was still online not long ago
                  Etsy makes luggage handles but maybe one day TB ..?
                  If TB had scraps leftover - accessories are a good way to use the scraps and to fulfill our need to accessorize Everything -
                  Its just a flat rectangle w Velcro
                  a key strap in the new style could let us add TB pouches to the outside
                  I am practicing wearing more black for an upcoming trip
                  But I was told to tone it down w the shoes and stick to dark accessories in Europe
                  I can use my black dyneema LS or Swift - as either is easy to clean

                    We Europeans can handle colors! I think the black/turquoise ensemble looks very stunning!

                    When is your trip? We tend to go black and brown in winter, that is true but I much rather do it the Tom Bihn way: ad color to the dark seasons!

                      @Badger showed a picture of her A30 (in ballistic) in her A45. Don't you have one of those?

                        @gulfcoastgal I like Talbots, especially since they have always had a good line of petite clothing, and I last bought items from them when I was in one of their stores a little over a year ago (a dress and some sweaters during their summer sale). But it's difficult shopping from them when they have no stores in Hawaii and you can't try on items, regardless of how good their catalogs are. For a long time I used to be able to mail order pants, because they carried a product line that fit really well, before they discontinued it. But at the start of that time I could always walk into one of their stores to return or try something on.

                          Yes, a perfect solution. I have a consulting gig coming up in January. May get myself one with those proceeds :-)

                              You store all TB INSIDE the A30.
                              The stockpile keeps growing...I'm in serious trouble.

                                I have two very petite friends who introduced me to Talbots plus my eldest is 5' if she really stands up straight
                                She has a hard time finding pants that fit her. She likes jcrew
