    Sure, let's see if I can get this to upload. . . . It's a little bit dark so it's hard to see details, and I do wish the clips were about 1/2" higher, but it works! This is one side, I did the same on the other side.

    Hypothetically, if one is packing for a canoe trip but runs out of room in the food barrel and needs an easy-access, dunk-proof bag to hold lunch for nine people, what to do? Piece of cake!



    This is a Large Shop Bag, lined with a big green garbage bag. Lunch is in the garbage bag, which is big enough that you can get a nice long twist closure, which then tucks down between the garbage bag and the LSB wall to keep it in place. Then the handles are tied together in a square knot - the garbage bag won't fall out if it gets tipped and the padded handles are still easy to grab. Plus, the side pockets are reasonably secure but easily accessed for things that don't need to be waterproofed, like sunscreen or bug spray.

    Oh. I just independently discovered this (first one) and posted it in a separate thread. It really is useful!

    I followed up in your Pilot fits into packing cube backpack and vice versa thread with some excerpted old pictures that @tangfl posted in February 2014 when the Pilot debuted. This identifies the hack with the Packing Cube Backpack for Tristar/Western Flyer (since the PCBP for Aeronaut gives too tight a fit), and also shows said packing cube backpack rolled up into a Size 1 Travel Stuff Sack.

    I came up with a solution to carrying a bike helmet on a DayLight BackPack (DLBP). I used the following TB Parts – total $5 USD!!

    1” Triangle Metal Hooks (Pair) - $1
    5/8” Shoulder Strap - $3
    Double Carabiner - $1

    I hooked each triangle metal hook to one of the waist strap loops on the DLBP.
    I then clipped the ends of the 5/8” shoulder strap to the metal hooks.
    Finally, I clipped the Double Carabiner to the DLBP carry handle at top.
    I then adjusted the 5/8” Shoulder Strap so I could thread the middle part through the holes in the bike helmet and then attach it to the double carabiner at the top.

    Below are a series of photos to help visualize it. I like that I can still get items in the DLBP main compartment without having to unclip the strap. I also like that I can adjust the Shoulder Strap so I can tighten things up and position the bike helmet higher or lower on the DLBP to my liking. The fact that I can unclip the Shoulder Strap easily and put it away when not is use is a great bonus too.

    Here are 2 picture of a bike helmet attached to the DLBP

    I just wanted to say thanks for this - I belatedly got a DLBP a few weeks ago and have been using this setup ever since, and I can't believe how well it works - it's been an absolute revelation!

    I am glad it works for you too! I find the DLBP a good size for biking as it is very slim and streamlined - being able to hook my helmet really helps reduce the number of things I need to carry when off the bike. I love that I can still get at things in the main compartment even with the helmet attached.

    Enjoy your DLBP and helmet setup!

    Cheers!

    My daughter is going to Japan and needed a good messenger bag to use while riding a bike. The MB was too big for her but the CP was perfect. However, she really wanted the waist strap like on the MB.
    I purchased a waist strap from the website and attached it to the CP by adding two grommets to the back material under the outside pocket zipper of the CP.
    Works perfect!Share Your Bag Hacks/Creative Uses-imageuploadedbytapatalk1453511662-495917-jpg

    The Camera I/O fits perfectly in large top compartment of the Aeronaut 45 PCBP.

    I've hacked a 16" key strap into an ID badge lanyard that I can wear in my belt:

    I love this @terayon! So intuitively obvious yet not for me apparently. I think I may try this today.

    Thanks!

    You can put a lot in the daylight backpack

    I use the Daylight pack to transport my 2008 Macbook Pro and my work Dell "ultralight". I use quotes as it's no Macbook Air. I have the Macbook in Cache and the Dell in an older Tom Bihn sleeve that I had for my old TiBook G4. I put the Cache in the bottom "pocket" and the Dell in the main compartment. A Snake Charmer is in there too. In the top pocket I have a key strap with a small padded Organizer and a medium clear organizer to hold misc odds and ends. This may all sound crazy but it's an effort to reduce the weight I'm putting on my bicycle. The Daylight weighs almost nothing by itself and I can drop it loaded into my saddle bag without any complaint.Share Your Bag Hacks/Creative Uses-img_0389-jpg
