    I think the Aeronaut 30 would be the one to consider. Its backpack straps are comfortable enough for travel, as in carrying it from car to plane to bus to hotel etc. The contents are easy to access...

    I washed my S25 after about 2.5 years and then used the second one you listed, the tent and gear solarproof spray. No stains or smells, worked perfectly. I also used it on my nylon (I think)...

    I lived in Asia for 2 years and the Balkans for 3, so I can understand what you're saying about product choice! I'd say that a "regular" laundry detergent would be fine, but I'd look for a plain...

    I washed one of my bags (S19) for the first time about a week ago, and I followed the directions that backpack has so graciously copied above. Everything turned out fine. I soaked the S19 in cold...

    I love Airtable! I didn't know if anyone used it or it was popular. I have all of my books inventoried in it because I got tired of accidentally buying the same ones.

    Interesting to see that people are complete opposites: some do S19 EDC/S25 for travel, so do S25 EDC/S19 for travel!

    I'm in the "S25 for carryon/long trips and S19 for EDC" camp. I don't have the...

    I don't have any multiples of "big" bags because I lean more toward minimalism and not having too much stuff around. Smaller items like shop bags, stuff sacks, and travel trays are different, though,...

    I would agree. I would add that unless you're talking about ludicrously expensive designer brands, brand names probably take longer to become "trashed" than one might think. There are plenty of...

    I am downright terrible to my bags, and I have never managed to break, tear, wear out, or rip a TB bag. I've messed up *plenty* of others, though. Halcyon is my favorite, and it's a trooper. I've...
