    I fold suit jackets into my Tri-Star all the time (usually one, but sometimes two) and they stay wrinkle free inside of a large Tri-Star packing cube. Here's the secret... fold the jacket using the...

    The Waterfield Design suede jacket sleeve sounds like what you are looking for. I use it on my 11" MacBook Air and then just put it in my Copilot or Pilot without any other case. It takes away no...

    While a seat cover could be helpful, be very careful since it has the potential to interfere with the side airbags that typically deploy from the seat in event of an accident.

    The Tri-Star is an amazing bag, but only if you use the right accessories. The two most important, for me, are the large Tri-Star packing cube and the medium Eagle Creek folder. Both of those go a...

    Skipper, for what it's worth, the Brain Bag feels very comfortable while carrying it, even with a pretty full load. And it carries well using both straps or, for shorter distances, slung over one...

    I'm a big fan of the Fisher Space Pen. The pressurized cartridge means that you can write upside down and even under water (haven't tested). The ink is waterproof (have tested!) and a cartridge...

    All your options look good, but let me suggest the Brain Bag. It carries very compactly when lightly loaded... about the same as the Synapse 25 with the same items inside. This is due to a great...

    I am 6'1" and the Synapse 19 is too small for more than one night unless it's at the beach with minimal clothing. Also, the S19 will not accommodate shoes if that is something you need. The Synapse...

    I think many of us use the same logic! There is always a reason to get another TB bag or flashlight.

    I have also recently discovered German watches (Sinn & Damasko & Nomos) and my penchant to...

    Although that saves lots of space, I'd be careful about using the space for storage. The CPAP really needs to be as sterile as possible since all the air we breathe passes through it and I'd be...
