    Are you hoteling? Car camping? Backpacking? Two outfits a day seems excessive to me, but I have more of a backpacker's mentality (and yes, I'm a female), even when traveling, so probably why I'm...

    And a between-sized torso length (more like the Smart Alex) would be good too. For those where the 19/22 is short, but the 25/30 too, long crowd

    Laptop in a Freudian Slip?

    I just acquired a new (to me) S19. It predated gatekeeper straps at the top of the bag, so there's no way for me to easily attach a cache (unless I sew some straps in myself). I don't toss my bag...

    I'd be THRILLED with any of those warm-but-not-too-warm browns or even a return of cocoa (missed out). I much prefer browns with red or green in them than the pedestrian browns that are too orange

    What People Mean by Magical TB Bags

    Today I saw a pack at REI that looked a LOT like my dyneema Smart Alec in form (REI Rucksack 28), with effectively a built-in upper module (which I don't have) as the top of the bag. It said 28L...

    I have a LCB and the 13" just barely fits vertically. The bag itself is really not too big at all. It's not much larger than a MCG anyways, is my understanding
