    Things I had not noticed...but do appreciate

    Sometimes I find that I have been using a bag for ages and suddenly discover a feature that I had not noticed before! Perhaps it is because some of us just use a bag in the "traditional" way, without exploring and experimenting.
    TB bags have so many amazing, thoughtful and useful features and so many on these forums post ideas, hacks and "how-to"s - so a big thank you for that!
    Today I am doing a big test pack in my Medium Road Duffel and found that it has 2 pairs of D rings for the shoulder strap attachment, one pair on top for a conventional carry and the other on one side for a "thinner" less bulky carry. Brilliant! Simple! So much easier to carry.
    I just wonder if a similar pair of attachments could be added to the Yeoman Duffels....

    p.s. still sad that MRDs now retired

    One un-advertised, but appreciated, feature on both the Travel Cubelet and the Side Effect is the balanced nature of them. When I wear them cross body, they stay put. They don't bang around and hit me in the hip. I never thought I would be comfortable hiking with one of these, because purses always fly around and annoy me, but neither of these items do that. The attachment points are just perfect to keep things stable.

    I LOVE my medium road duffle. I use the side attachments for my shoulder strap, all the time. I also love that the end pockets are gusseted and have wide zippers, so you can actually put stuff in there and get it out again easily. And lots of extra inside pockets. And lash straps everywhere.

    Sometimes I think a little too much thought goes into the TB bags, and they are a little over engineered. But then I look at the simplicity of some of the other bags and I love them. I often compare my A45 with my medium road duffle, and I much prefer the size, shape and pockets on the MRD. The A45 has its uses, which is why I have 2 of them, but the MRD has my heart.
