    I have carried Cafe bags and a Side Kick on travels. Things can fall out of Cafe bags under the airline seat. A pickpocket did unzip my Side Kick and I have learned to use a carabiner on the outer...

    I’m wondering if you need to carry whole packages with you. Can a few wipes be in a sandwich sized plastic bag and refilled in the car? You could also have one out to clean car handles or carts too....

    I couldn’t complete a order for a GES25 since my son got laid off, but I’d like to purchase some smaller items to help things along. Would like to preorder a Truck in Wilderness and stuff sacks in...

    Welcome to the obsession! I am wondering if some of your tools like scissors may make it necessary for you to have checked luggage on a plane flight. That can change not only your choice of bag but...

    I personally would be hesitant to put any lunch with other non food items because of leakage but I would suggest a Traveltrayor DLBP as a lunch carrier. Either could be folded up in your Pilot to...

    I really like my DLBC.I paired it with a TB Absolute Strap which also has an OpTech tag on it. Turns out this strap also has a smaller pad attached as well. The original halcyon DLBC also has side...

    Thanks for the information about the different fabric on the PCSB. If this is thinner (don’t know if less dense is the descriptor) it may show marks more than 525?...

    I also wonder if different color batches also make a difference. My coyote 525 PCSB also shows white scuff marks from carrying a camera battery inside but this never shows on my black halcyon PCSB...

    Copilot vs DLBC

    I have a Daylight Briefcase and really like its ability to keep everything in zippered sections. Sometimes it seems small, but a Pilot is too large to carry. Has anyone got a Copilot and DLBC? The...

    I have an Eagle Creek digihauler which is lightweight, has minimal backpack straps that hide away, hooks for strap carry and carryon size. Don’t know if it is still available but might be worth...

    I don’t have a Cubelet, but I really like the PCSB. When it’s warmer, it can be easier to use the PCSB as the backpack can get sticky feeling. It would also be big enough to put in phone, sunscreen,...

    Covering all the bases - Maybe a Synik?

    I resisted preordering a Synik and now wonder if I should have gotten one.

    In trying to streamline my travel life, Iíve narrowed my choices and which set I take depends on length of trip. Still...

    Thanks for link. I am not sure if bag length is the same as strap length, that is if longer bags have longer straps and thus don’t fit as well.

    Thanks to everyone who has posted. I have been so tempted by the new Synik, but I have an A30 which can be heavy when filled so I’m sure the A45 would be hard for me to carry.

    I used the A30 and...

    Many six year olds carry backpacks to school so that shouldn’t be a problem. I’d suggest letting the older one choose their own backpack and buy special toys and treats for the trip and maybe their...

    An inspired packing job! Thanks for posting. Would suggest more camera batteries and plug in charger. I had a charger cable that plugged into the camera that died and the camera wouldn’t work.
