    NYC: one night with the Aeronaut 30

    Spent one night in NYC recently with only my A30 and SE on business travel.

    Really, the A30 was only about half full, but my S19 is just a smidgen too small.
    First End compartment: Toiletries went into a clear 3DOC, with a Size 1 stuff sack - I carry the Stuff Sack everyday with tiny zip plastic bags of Pepto, aspirin, Allegra, lip balm, eye drops etc. The 3DOC had hair conditioner, Boom stick, mascara, comb, toothbrush, etc.

    Center compartment: Underwear into another Size 1 Stuff Sack, ponte pants and tshirt in an A30 Aether Cube. I wore a ponte dress and some Clark's mary jane shoes which are dressy enough, but completely walkable (almost sneakers!) - (and no, I'm not particularly girly.)

    Another Size 1 Stuff Sack for electronic chargers/cords, and my work laptop in it's cache - my EDC is my S19 with my lap top and Surface Pro each in a cache. There's no way to connect it into the A30, but it was ok in the center compartment (it was just a smidgen too big to fit in the backpack strap pocket.) And finally a brilliant extension cord / usb hub thingy.

    Second end compartment held my SE which is my purse (organizer wallet & pouch, keys, phone - normally goes in the bottom pocket of my S19) and an external better for my phone. I ended up wearing the SE crossbody a lot of the time, but it was good to be able to tuck it away on the plane.

    That's it! Not much to share but I like to go light. No pictures I'm afraid, because it was a really fast trip, but the A30 was great.

    NYCWriter, it was a 24hr business trip. Frown
    We were supposed to stay at the Marriot on Times Square, but it was the same afternoon of the recent tragic car incident.

    Next time for fun!

    Kerrpe, what was the "brilliant extension cord / usb hub thingy"? It might be something I'm looking for.

    Sorry I missed your question, aedifica!
    hope this link works:

    I'm a super-light packer and this doesn't really fit the bill, but it's so darn useful I carry it anyway.

    Thanks! I ended up finding this one, which is similar but possibly more compact: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B06XFZPQSM/
