    My knee-jerk reaction was yes, it's a copy.

    But the more I look at it the more I don't think so. It is similar, a U-duffel with side pockets, but that's where it ends. The Aeronaut is much more...

    Thanks. Most of the savings is in aggressively cutting clothes from the packing list and doing frequent (every 3 days) sink laundry, or real laundry when available.

    I really like the idea of your packing lists in OmniFocus. My packing style is haphazard, where I gather things that I think I'll need over the course of the week leading up to the trip, and then a...

    I really, really wish the Pop Tote had D-rings for a shoulder strap. I would use it cross-body often.

    Tenacious Tape is designed to remove cleanly so that jackets, bags, etc, can be properly patched at a later time. On items I’ve patched it’s never been a question- the patches have been strong enough...

    I agree. I skipped out on the Shadow Guide (and the original Guide's Pack) because it is unlined. I don't mind the extra weight. Even if it were lined with Aether instead of Halcyon 200, that would...

    Because I pack a camera and some other dense electronic gear, my S19 or S22 grazes about 14lbs when packed for a typical two or three week trip.

    You can buy them brand new on Amazon, to nobody's surprise. A quick look suggests you can get 24 for $10 or 60 for $14.
