    Polyester as a fiber will start to develop sheen as the fiber itself gets 'polished' by wear. Some websites talk about washing them inside-out, or using bathroom hydrogen peroxide to life the fiber...

    If weight isn't an issue, I think the rear pocket works to hold 5 pairs, and leaves enough space in a TS for a fair amount of stuff in the other sections. An A30 is a slightly smaller bag, and I...

    It takes careful packing. I like to fill my packing cubes as "square" as possibly, and underpack the central portion of the bag, if I can - which lets it "bulge" inward. Protects my more sensitive...
