    Yeoman carry methods?

    Can carry by hand, and with a strap on the shoulder, but are the handles long enough to allow for it to be carried as a "backpack" in a pinch if you need your hands free and don't want the bag flying...

    Zebralight +10000000000000000!!!! FANTASTIC light, LOVE the headband accessory. Fantastic for camping or riding the bike. So flexible in use.

    Thanks for such a thoughtful review and itemization....

    True minimalist shoes don't have arch support (I'm using the definition of minimalist to be a "barefoot" shoe). I'm guessing this is intended to look more professional than 5-fingers and SoftStar,...

    And a between-sized torso length (more like the Smart Alex) would be good too. For those where the 19/22 is short, but the 25/30 too, long crowd

    Laptop in a Freudian Slip?

    I just acquired a new (to me) S19. It predated gatekeeper straps at the top of the bag, so there's no way for me to easily attach a cache (unless I sew some straps in myself). I don't toss my bag...

    I'd be THRILLED with any of those warm-but-not-too-warm browns or even a return of cocoa (missed out). I much prefer browns with red or green in them than the pedestrian browns that are too orange

    What People Mean by Magical TB Bags

    Today I saw a pack at REI that looked a LOT like my dyneema Smart Alec in form (REI Rucksack 28), with effectively a built-in upper module (which I don't have) as the top of the bag. It said 28L...

    I have a LCB and the 13" just barely fits vertically. The bag itself is really not too big at all. It's not much larger than a MCG anyways, is my understanding
