    Meh. Gender is a social construct. The more we ignore arbitrary boundaries, the more we welcome an era of equality!

    After trying every possible combination, I've settled on noise isolating earbuds. They take up so much less space, but work basically the same. Also, they're stealthier to wear. Also, active noise...

    I recommend the shop bag. Actually, in your shoes I'd get two small ones, to distribute the weight across both shoulders/arms and ensure a small shop doesn't leave the bag dragging on the ground....

    Weekend with an S30

    My sister's S30 was a Countron pre production batch lucky duck... And it arrived too late for her weekend trip, but not mine! So I, uh, borrowed it. I'll totally give it back, I swear.

    Mostly I've only had success with Merino separates, for exactly the reasons you described. The problem is a dress needs structure to look like more than a beach cover up. So the only Merino dress...

    Have you weighed it to get a goal for what feels comfortable? When what I need to carry feels too heavy in a one-shoulder bag, I switch to a backpack.

    I teach college, and the kids all carry much larger, heavier duty bags than the DLBP. I carry an S19, and it's smaller than most of the bags my students carry. If you want to let him appreciate TB...

    I have this same experience between L15 and S19.

    They are very different bags, and I predict you'll be glad to have both!

    I think an S19 would be cutting it close. Your packing list is a lot like mine -- and you can see how it fits in the S19 and the L15. I think you'd end up stuffing the S19 to capacity, which IMO...

    S19 would not have been a big enough bag for me in grad school. When I finished and got a...

    I use a mini caribiner to clip a water bottle to an o-ring in my Truck. It only works with bottles that have a loop for attaching, but you always have to pair the right bottle with the right bag.

    If I were you, I'd go with the L12. The DLBP is also great, but the water bottle holder, padded straps, and smaller size make it the winner.
