    When I first bought my TB bags, I did match my packing cubes to the interior color. I loved how they matched. And then I could never find what I was looking for. I had to open every packing...

    Lose the 40oz mug. I never travel with a water bottle and I haven't gone thirsty yet. 40oz of liquid is heavy.

    Oh, good grief. A pack of Hanafuda cards for KoiKoi weigh a fraction of an ounce. I printed off the rules off several online websites, just a page or two that I keep with the cards.

    Since the A45 can transition from backpack to shoulder carry to hand carry, I would use it. I've been successful running through European airports and train stations and getting on trains using the...

    What about using lash straps, like the ones that come with the Road Buddy? DOH! I see you've already created one.

    The strap is still an extra pain in the butt. I prefer a pass through sleeve,...

    Rick Steves has a lot of good travel items on his website. I've bought his travel towels and his clothesline. Both are super lightweight. The towels absorb a lot of water and dry quickly. I used...

    Nice review. Thanks. Is the Synik30 the same size ish as the A30? Being a "regular" looking backpack, it's deceiving.

    OH YES! I can fit all the contents of an A30 into the center section of the Road Duffle 36. That leaves all the end pockets available in the 36, and they are much bigger than the end pockets on...

    I think the absolute strap is one of the few items sourced from another vendor, while the backpack straps are made in house. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    I highly recommend Outlier. Their 100% merino T-shirts are smoother, not itchy, and just beefier than Icebreaker's T-shirts.

    I don't think there is a one coat to rule them all, but I live in Florida, so your mileage will vary.

    Allbirds have a stiff heel cup that does not fold down. I don't think of them as packable, and they don't have enough support for the gym or walking. I like the idea of wool shoes and I have many...

    ROAD BUDDY 36!!!! I like it so much better than the A30. It has better 2D packing space, and you can actually fit stuff in the end pockets because they are larger and gusseted.
