    All of your photos are so awesome and helpful. Thanks for sharing! That Nordic Halcyon looks great in your photos as well. It's not a color I've ever experienced in real life.

    I use the LSB for groceries and sometimes the Truck. I actually prefer the LSB because it's flat until I load it up.

    For what it's worth I like the Pop Tote way better than the Shop Bag, but I...

    That's correct. They're simple zippered backpacks with one big compartment. But as I mentioned above, the older model packs to the size of a tangerine and the newer, even lighter model could fit...

    I think TB makes much better packable bags if you need good organization.

    If you don't, my go-to has always been the Sea to Summit Ultra Sil Day Pack. I've recently just got a Sea to Summit Ultra...

    You can buy them brand new on Amazon, to nobody's surprise. A quick look suggests you can get 24 for $10 or 60 for $14.

    I was on the phone last night so I had to be brief. Here's details:

    In the bottom I have a pair of sturdy flip flops (Chacos) in an Eagle Creek Specter Shoe Sac.

    I think that the Eagle Creek Specter Compression cube is a great choice for the main compartment. It tucks into the clothing straps nicely and still leaves space for narrow things like a water bottle...

    It's just me, but I would repack those pills into a day-of-the-week pill case. You'd save a fair amount of space!

    I saw a great deal for refurbished QC30 earbuds so I thought I’d give them a shot. I’ll be sure to let you guys know!

    Check first that your phone is unlocked, and if not, request an unlock from your carrier.

    Then look into Orange Holiday Europe. It's about $50 and works for 14 days before needing to be topped up....

    This might be the right time to try out and see if sleep apnea is alleviated by sleeping on your side.

    I had this experience too on my last flight. The plane noise was *much* more loud than other flights I've taken and I found the QC35s to be a life-saver since it was a redeye flight both ways....

    @Tonya agreed. The new Synik shoulder straps are so good I can't help but imagine how good the Synapse would be with them.

    On camera gear:
    The X-E3 is about the same size body as my E-M10. It looks like your walkaround prime 23/2 is a little longer which might actually not fit well in the Synik 22. It did not fit well...

    I carry camera gear too.

    It's a "bad habit" I'm trying to break. It makes onebag travel a lot harder and heavier. But my m43 camera with a pancake lens fits great in one side pocket of the S19 or...

    I don't normally because they take up so much space in my bag, and I only use them on flights.
