    Across the Atlantic with a Synapse 25 and a Co-Pilot

    I'm off to my brother's wedding in Dubai, but since I'm still in the midst of my academic semester it's going to be a quick in and out (3 days total, which sucks for such a long and expensive flight). I can make everything fit into just my Synapse 25, but decided to take the Co-Pilot as well so I have a smaller bag with in-flight essentials next to me for the grueling 13 hour flight. I'm also going from a very cold climate to a really hot one, so I had to strategize accordingly.

    Leaving the house I'll be wearing jeans, sneakers, a button down shirt, zip up hoodie, scarf, gloves, ear muffs, and my uniqlo ultra light packable down jacket.

    In the Synapse:

    Size 3 wasabi stuff sack with 4 pairs undies/2 pairs socks
    Size 2 UV stuff sack to store scarf, gloves, ear muffs
    Travel pillow
    Toiletries in Eagle Creek Pack-It specter kit
    Packed up uniqlo jacket
    Wireless apple keyboard for iPad in InCase Origami Workstation
    Shoes in Eagle Creek Specter shoe sac
    Meds in size 1 iberian stuff sac
    Medium tri-star packing cube containing: 2 tshirts, 1 pair black dress pants, 1 black top, jammie bottoms, 1 tank

    In the Co-Pilot:

    0.7 L. Vapur anti-bottle
    book
    glasses case
    Moleskine + pens
    iPad mini
    Small wasabi organizer pouch with charging cables and earbuds - left pocket
    Medium UV organizer pouch with passport and other travel documents - slips into the back pocket of the Co-Pilot, secured with 8 inch keystrap to the clip of the shoulder strap
    Mesh UV organizer cube with in-flight essentials (painkillers, lotion, altoids, microfiber cloth, nasal spray, hand sanitizer, wet wipes) - right pocket
    Wallet + phone (not pictured)

    You are a great brother! Three days and two 13-hour flights?

    Thanks for the pictures -- I love the captions!

    LOLOL, Oops. You are a great SISTER! My family for some reason has no mixed sibling groups, across all my cousins. So brothers always have brothers, and sisters always have sisters.

    +50 for the library book in the CP! (You will never catch me anywhere without some hardcopy assigned reading...)

    @bermudajes, I'm not really a dress sort of person, so I'm wearing black slacks and a black silk shirt. @adalangdon I hear you! The hardcopy is annoying to carry around, but gotta use that plane time wisely.

    @Tachiyaku have an amazing time! The trip may be short, the journeys there + back may be long, but traveling there is the absolute best gift you can give to your brother. Wishing you an easy and restful flight!
