  • Opinions after test packing the S19 alongside the Osprey Daylite Plus - I packed both with a week's worth of clothes/toiletries so they were probably heavier than a normal hiking load. I can't speak to actual heat issues since I was indoors, but my guess above was affirmed: Osprey feels like it would...

  • For: iPad Pro 11", 4th gen, in a slim case: PCSB (halcyon) - iPad fits in the front pocket. Zipper fully closes easily with room left in the pocket for a few small/slim items.

  • For: iPad Pro 11", 4th gen, in a slim case:

    Side Kick (Night Walk 400 Halcyon) - iPad does not fit if SK is zipped (will fit if a corner is left unzipped as shown). As noted in post #1, this iPad without a case will barely fit when SK is zipped, but only if it's carefully inserted...

  • Thank you for sharing. My intent with this thread is for contributors to mainly focus on sharing how these particular models of iPads (Pro versions) fit into TB bags (a SK w/ clips for hanging just happened to be the first example photo/comments I shared - I do understand that many posts showing swivel...

  • iPad Pro & how it fits in TB bags

    **Edited to add: Please feel free to share your own notes or photos of how iPad Pro models fit into TB bags.

    I usually carry an iPad Pro (11", 4th gen, W: 7.02" - H: 9.74" - D: 0.23" - slightly bigger w/slim case) so I'll be trying it out in different TB bags....

  • 3DOC - CLEAR 3D ORGANIZER CUBE - Flexible material, great for boating

    I've tried many clear toiletry bags/pouches and this is the most durable, flexible one I've found. Most clear pouches are made of rigid or somewhat stiff plastic and generally don't conform well or have a pleasing feel.

    Previously I've been using either the Osprey Ultralight Liquids Travel...

  • Quick photo of S19 and Osprey Daylite Plus 20L. Osprey is a little longer and mesh/fabric is thinner, but the S19 touches your back a little less. Might be close to a tie re: hot back, so decision probably depends on your torso length and your preference for coolness vs comfort. S19 has a more cushiony...

  • I'll be comparing my new S19 (400d halcyon exterior..imo that's the best TB ext fabric for hiking..more flexible and less weight) with an Osprey Daylite Plus this weekend. Just at-home test packing but I'll report back w/ pics and notes. LMK if you need quick pics etc before then. ...

    replied to 2023 Wish List
    Wish list: Large zip-top shop bags in more "fun" colors and the lighter weight fabrics (for folding down and packing as an overflow bag when traveling). Would love to see more purples/pinks/bright colors in TB bags overall (bright/unique colors seem to be in high demand for resale, so it makes...

    replied to Four Weeks of Bags
    Small TT.... one is temporarily holding key straps and the other was a gift bag for a small succulent (I cinched it before gifting to a student who just moved into their first apartment). I'll order a few more for future use as gift bags. I also think a self-contained potted plant would look cute sitting...

  • These are the 8" key straps (Wasabi and Ultraviolet) and the Clear Organizer Pouch, mini, Canary 1000 Cordura.

    (All of these items don't fit in the pouch at the same time - just shown for size reference). In the 2nd photo, items inside the pouch are an Athleta face mask, lip balm,...

    Visual Size Comparisons

    I find it helpful for visualizing a product's size to see it paired with everyday items. I've just placed my first orders so I'll post items here as they arrive.

    The photos below are Double Organizer Pouches, small and medium, Canary 1000 Cordura, indoor lighting.

    Edit: I added...
