    Reading this makes me realize that I actually find them MORE comfortable than a better-padded backpack carrying a small to medium load. I'm often aware of the bulk of an even lightly padded strap--it makes me feel faintly claustrophobic when I reach forward and feel it, and increases my perception of overheating when it's hot--and these straps don't have that bulk.


      I have used the Standard Luggage Co 8L Packing Cube/Packable Day Pack with some success. Outbounding in a Ebags Motherloade when I decided to go one bag at the last minute for a 10 day casual trip to MV v my initial plan of a Synik 30 and an Empire Builder. Inbound, I just used in as my personal item.

      Secondly, I used it with great success on a 4 day casual trip (car) moving my son back to school with the S30. I used it inbound as a packing cube. On the ground as a day pack and outbound as a dirty clothes bag/packing cube.

      If the Aeronaut Packing Cube Pack at 65 ish shipped had been available, I suspect I would have gone for it and drove on. The SLC bag above is 39.99 shipped and I got the last one on Amazon with some credit such that in netted to me at 25 ish shipped. I suspect they are still avail on the mothership webisite.
