    Good ideas all, ejvc!

    Donít get me started on the conference bags. Iíve stopped taking them now when I register. They just pile up like tribbles.
  2. Alternative uses for cache clips, retaining straps

    I have a whole pile of the two sided cache rail clips, as well as the retaining straps that come in things like the western flyer and tri-star (two pieces, clips in both ends, joined by a buckle).

    Looks great! I cut the flaps off of all my old caches because they were too big and bulky. This looks like a welcome improvement.

    It's so very frustrating, isn't it? For me, they made off with about 3K worth of stuff, including lots of things they will probably throw away -- like prescription glasses. F****** freeloaders. I...

    Does a packed A45 fit in the overhead bin of regional jets -- specifically the CRJ700 and CRJ900, and to a lesser extent the Embraers?

    It's a pretty tiny compartment. The WF and Tristar *do* both...

    I use the water bottle pocket for my laptop bricks. They take up too much space in my minimalist DLBC.

    Edit: The should have been past tense. I meant "used". I no longer have a WF :(

    Hey everybody, thanks for your words of encouragement. It is indeed frustrating. Really makes you feel powerless and vulnerable.

  12. Feel my pain: Tri-Star and Western Flyer stolen from car

    Flew into LAX on Wednesday, picked up a rental car, and headed up to Santa Monica to have dinner with a friend.

    I had my Tri-Star with me, with an empty Western Flyer in one of the large pockets....

    Sorry, I haven't read the whole thread. But does it look like there will be items in new Dyneema colors beside the current Steel, Iberian, Wasabi, and Uktraviolet? Is the Zest Dyneema?

    Don't delay! Cyber Monday is nearly here!

    I am a huge fan of the packing cubes. I have used them for a long time from other manufacturers but having cubes sized to specific bags is really awesome....

    I know! I did the same thing because it really bothered me to use the wrong cubes in the wrong bags. You should be good to go -- they are definitely wasabi pulls and of course straight ahead black.

    I'm not sure what the states dimensions are, but in real life, to me, the WF feels quite a bit smaller. It's the perfect size for a day or two, or as a companion to a larger bag.

    Haha! Good idea, hadn't even considered that!

    Before I had written TS or WF on the product tags inside each cube. That clearly wasn't a very elegant solution.
