I burned through clean clothes more than on any trip I've ever taken.

    Now Iím patiently waiting for the navy A30 to be released. So it can match a navy WF and navy yeoman mini. And navy pilot when they also come out Is the A30 the perfect bag?

    Have you tried wool garments? As mentioned above, they have anti-microbial properties and don't pick up odors like other fabric. Polyester was originally billed as a miracle material, but for me, the real miracle material is 100% wool.

    Fair enough...but do you not pack by weight? Washing/drying labor can easily be completed in under five minutes; however, if you prefer other options, I understand.

    If you don't move hotels every night, just take off your shoes, empty your pockets and walk right into the shower... wash yourself and your clothes... if you're wearing reasonably lightweight travel clothes or fabrics, they'll dry in about a day.
    I like all the blues and greys...and all the happy citrus colours too! My search unicorn is the Sapphire Dyneema original Small Shop Bag...

    I started doing this last year (though just with undergarments) and have been happy with it. Adds ~5 mins. to a shower, and most body washes will do a fine job of rinsing fabric clean. I bring inflatable hangers that improve airflow and everything is dry in less than 5 hours. if you wear undershirts, most outerwear just needs a spot cleaning if soiled.

    Iíve never flown American Eagle so canít confirm this one. But for other airlines with regional planes such as the Bombardier Dash 8 Q400, the A30 has worked great.

    I've somewhat been torn going with the A45 over the A30. The A30 left me with zero wiggle room and I figured I'd just underpack the A45 (plus, easier to deal with shoes if I need them). But the weight of a fully packed A45 as a backpack isn't great. On top of that, I tend to carry a laptop and I'm not entirely comfortable with it in the strap compartment, esp when in backpack mode. Part of me wants an A35 somehow with a dedicate rear laptop sleeve, heh (and somehow not gaining weight and cost...).

    What do you all do laptopwise for storage in the Aeronauts?

    Hi @linh.n,

    Could you carry your laptop cross-body in a Daylight Briefcase, while wearing the Aeronaut on your back?

    I guess I should have noted I was going for a single bag goal. Mostly because I reserve the need for a shoulder bag as my small camera bag, lol. And if I use a bag big enough for my laptop, I then prefer it on my back anyway. I think it's more I have loved using the Aeronaut except when I need a laptop. So close to the perfect single bag for me

    Shoulder strap compartment, or I lay it flat on top of everything in the main compartment (in a padded sleeve).

    Honestly my ideal carry is an A30 in duffle mode + S25 on my back.
