    Exactly! I think maybe the new keyboard introduced last year may have added too much friction to the equation.

    In any case, Sounds like no one has modified their cache. I was hoping for a link...

    I should call customer service because the size is "Surface with keyboard", exactly what I have. I was hoping it would loosen up, but hasn't. Even so it would still be in the wrong direction.

    FWIW...I find the rails provide limited benefit. If I have pre-check the computer stays in (although even then they sometimes they make me take all devices out). When I need to pull it out, 50/50...

    The A30 has worked for me, with one large and recently a small (or half) cube. I also have an Eagle creek - I think they call it a quarter cube - two sided for socks and undies. These all fit...

    I do get the idea. Today I just remove the cache then remove the surface from it. I'd like to just pull the surface out of the briefcase.

    Do you think cutting the cache down one of the long...
  6. Modifying a cache for vertical and horizontal entry

    Has anyone modified a vertical cache to use in a horizontal briefcase? I got a vertical 6z for my Lenovo and later a vertical Surface Pro for my (er) Surface Pro, and use them in my S25. The Lenovo...

    I have a black Halcyon / iberian A30 for over a year now. Love it! It fits more than you think and remains organized, especially if you use packing cubes. It will fit in any airline bag size...

    I have and A30 and so glad I bought the large PC for my shirts and pants. It fits perfectly as the first layer in the main compartment. Small clothes go into an Eagle Creek half cube, and it fits...

    I tried the DLBC in my quest for one-bag travel, and it worked through security at the airport. Then I wanted to grab some food, and at the gate I decided I should pull the DLBC out so I could have...

    You definitely need a travel tray. A30, then start working on the briefcase/messenger. At least that was my path after starting with the S25

    My S25 was great when we ventured to the top of Haleakala on Maui for the sunset.

    I also have the S25 and A30 both in black Halcyon. I love both bags, but not together. The A30 is so much better as a backpack. Carrying two sizeable backpacks sucks.

    New Surface Pro = new Tom Bihn bag?

    In June I got the New Surface Pro, and took one trip toz Asia with it. It's a keeper, and I thought it would help me downsize enough to one bag it with my A30 and DLBC.

    In find the A30 main compartment small for suit jackets - at least the way I've folded them to minimize wrinkles.

    I'm not sure the A45 would be much better on this regard. I have an MEI Executive...
