    Recently I needed a place for my glases while I sorted out my unruly hair and Ceepee took a picture:

    I decided to turn one of my pouches into an undercover hidden pocket. I have been wearing this for over a week in Europe and it worked great. I used a 1 inch width strap and a mini pouch, as I wanted this mainly as "deep storage" for cash and a credit card or two (no passport). I used super strong upholstery sewing thread to attach the strap to the pouch.

    At first I was not sure about comfort, but I was surprised how little I even noticed wearing it. The Halcyon is a nice soft fabric and also more moisture resistant than cotton. The strap went on my belt and the pouch was inside my jeans under my front pocket. I was not too happy about the split ring as closure, while it was secure it also was a pain to open and close. However, this was deep storage and I did not have to access it too often. Do not use this a wallet replacement! Smilie

    I always found the Apple Pencil too long to fit nicely in the pen slot of my Synapse 19. Then, I had a lightbulb moment.....

    Inserting it down through the webbing loop of the O-ring stops the top leaning out into the pocket Smilie

    This one's a bit silly, but when you find yourself at your parents' house to help your mother through chemo treatments and you didn't bring a small bag with you, you improvise.

    Here's my medium Yarn Stuff Sack acting as a purse-like object, holding my phone, wallet, keys, and tissues. Hooking the string through the outer hook creates the perfect handle.

    Nice hack! I'm thinking of you and your mother. I hope all goes well and your mom is restored to full health.

    Has this been shown before? I like to keep my car fob in the mesh pockets of my Freudian Slip, but I’m worried it might fall out. So I ran a split ring around the elastic at the top of the pocket - instant o-ring!

    This is really obvious and has probably been posted before, but I use some paracord with a cord stopper to keep my water bottle upright and secured in a mostly empty DLBP.

    ^^^ That was not obvious to me, but ingenious! Thanks! I just hacked my Pop Tote with this for the times when I don't want my water bottle on the outside or can't fit it because I have too many other things in the outside pockets.

    That works well with an umbrella too.

    My umbrella usually just lies on the bottom of the backpack when it's mostly empty (fits next to the water bottle) or is upright between other stuff when the bag is full. But it's true, this could be used for an umbrella too.Smilie

    You can fit an iPad Mini with a keyboard case or a Nook tablet in a Medium Padded Pouch inside the FJN, even with the rings, provided you use only a handful of paper in the rings.

    Securing either is the problem, a Pouch can be clipped to the o-ring but I don't find it ideal.

    If I need a bag to carry either a Small Cafe Bag or a Side Kick would be better.

    This is genius! This whole thread blows my mind. I thought I was just ordering an Aeronaut 30 (for my 18 year old son to take to Japan for 10 days) and I would have to pick a color. I go to order it and I see I have to decide about packing cubes. All I wanted was for someone to tell me what would be the best packing cube arrangement and now I see I am going to have to order one to two of every little part and string and clip and strap and cube XD From bags that aren't even the one i'm going to buy! This is crazy and wonderful -- thank you all!

    There are a lot of genius ideas in this thread! But do you still need help with which packing cubes to order for the A30? If so, feel free to start a new thread -- perhaps in the Accessories and Organization Strategies category -- and people will help you out.
