    I took my Aubergine/Wasabi SK on a trip to Tucson (with my Western Flyer). It was perfect as an inflight bag for a brief trip without laptop and lots of papers. I easily held my Kindle and the usual...

    Heathrow express, etc.

    If you're arriving any day but Sunday, I recommend the Heathrow Connect rather than the Express (it's not very frequent on Sundays): half the price, takes a bit longer, and both go to Paddington...

    I travel to London for a week to ten days twice a year, and I almost always take a Western Flyer and a Co-Pilot. I also pack a Small Cafe Bag because I find the CP is bigger than I need for walking...

    Glad I could make you smile, Ilkyway!

    We could all use a bit more levity in our daily lives.

    Thanks, Moriond!

    The sig line reflects my quest...and my joke for years that I must be at least part marsupial. This might be the only group of people who would understand.

    I love a good red bag, but if the mystery new color turns out to be a fabulous blue Dyneema, that would make me even happier. Hence more dithering...which is a bit ridiculous because I already have a...

    a new dyneema co-pilot?

    Will we be surprised about the Co-Pilot too? The steel dyneema seems to have gone away, and now I'm wondering if the Iberian one is soon to disappear. I obviously dithered too long trying to decide...

    You're right, I'll be (and am) happy: the navy Breve is lovely, and I do like "vintage." It also reminds me of a rather wonderful envelope bag I had many years ago that I used as a briefcase. I gave...
