    Weighing in here as a 6'2" chap weighing about 250lb.

    I most often use my Aeronaut 30 (30 litre capacity, front loading duffel type) for (casual dress code) work related trips of up to 3 days,...

    If your mother insists on checking a rolling bag, I'd say that the last thing you want is a rolling bag for yourself - else you might end up wrangling two rolling bags across cobblestones instead of...

    Yes - Solar was a much missed lining fabric, dyneema/halcyon, in a bright yellow shade. It was replaced, notionally, by Wasabi which is a pale green.

    Edited to add - if you look at...

    I remember being amazed by the "one more thing" effect with my Aeronaut - the original 45 litre version, from before it was renamed and acquired a little brother - when I got it. It was bought used,...

    Why be a Molly Monochrome when there are so many fun colours in the world? ;) I'm not sure my signature is completely up to date but it's a start!

    1. What bag/accessories are you carrying (items + colors, pics always welcome)?

    For travel, there is always the ever-reliable Aubergine/Wasabi Aeronaut 30. It corrals a variety of items -

    The Night Flight Travel Duffle was a much smaller bag than an A30, intended to be more of a personal item sized bag in horizontal duffle format. As I recall it had a capacity of well under 20...

    I think the nearest thing in the TB range to your requirement set would be an Aeronaut 30.

    >25 litre capacity: check (30 litres, split between a main compartment and two much smaller end pockets)...

    I'm certainly hoping that it will fit, because I've recently snagged a Mars Red Side Kick from eBay which I'm hoping to use in the A30 side pocket. I'm away from home at the moment but, if the bag...

    I don't have the hip belt, but I do have the A30 frame sheet and I find it changes the way the bag carries quite considerably - makes it more "of a piece" and less saggy. If heavily loaded it also...

    Snap. My Mars Red Guide's Edition S25 languishes; I tried it with an overnight loadout for a work trip, to take the place of my A30, but it just wouldn't work for some reason. It's a lovely...

    You may need to be a bit careful over weight with an A45... one of that design's defining characteristics is that there is always room for one more thing, and the last thing you need is to compress a...

    I've carried my (dyneema) Pilot inside the (ballistic) A45 for a 4-day work trip, with my EDC bits (laptop, glasses, paperwork etc) in the Pilot in marsupial mode.
    The main reason was that I didn't...

    I'm fairly sure I've observed before that many, if not most, of the Tom Bihn designs appear to be based on some kind of modular grid system as far as dimensions are concerned. The Aeronaut 45 end...

    That's a fairly valid view, although I would argue that the original trilogy is worthwhile; from book 4 onward it all starts to feel somewhat thinly stretched, IMHO, in a kind of "how many books can...
