    Next to nil, based on prior comments. It doesn't fit the work flow and leads to inefficiency.

    SG33: Not for me, but maybe for you

    To disclose my biases, I normally use an A45, S22, and side kick. I tried to like the SG33, but it just doesn't fit my packing/carrying style. Sometimes the A45 feels too big and the S22 is too...

    V4 Flannel mask review

    I'm very pleased with the v4 flannel mask. The previous masks I've primarily worn were the v1 mask and some surgical masks.
    The v4 mask was very formfitting; more than any other masks I've used, I...

    I would bring three things: books, books, and more books. How many books fit into a 33L bag? I'll be happy to test :)

    A flannel mask sounds very interesting, especially as we approach cooler months.

    IMO, that will depend on the items you intend to put into the space. Small items will probably get lost in the space, whereas larger items which fill the space well will probably not need any...

    I think its an unwise choice on a plane. When stowed beneath a seat, items in the bag will fall out. Bags for any type of travel need to have a zippered opening, imo.

    I'm despondent that deep blue 525 doesn't perfectly match navy 1050 (and the solar/Solaris change makes me shudder.) Too ocd, I guess, but change is a part of life :/

    As @G42 mentioned, clothing weight and type is very subjective. Wouldn't it be simpler to weigh all of the items you intend to take with you, and then compute the total baggage weight with each of...

    I hate to do it, but I always use shoe trees for 'real' shoes. They're comparatively heavy, but I've not found any other solution to prevent being smashed and keeping the shoe's shape. Plus, as I use...
