    I hate to do it, but I always use shoe trees for 'real' shoes. They're comparatively heavy, but I've not found any other solution to prevent being smashed and keeping the shoe's shape. Plus, as I use...

    I wouldn't pack good shoes without protection (both for the shoes and the bag.) You can use any of the cubes that G42 mentioned; however, I prefer something more protective like a real shoe bag. I...

    Regarding bag size, personally, I would just under-pack and take the chance, but only you can determine if the extra bag width is an acceptable risk.

    It's not as manly as a vintage vietnam-era army rucksack, but I found that having a bag that properly fits the task is a better gauge of masculinity. ymmv.

    Don't know if this'll work with your packing style, but when you order 5 straps simultaneously, TB includes a medium-ish plastic ring to keep them together. You could use a 8" strap to hook the ring...

    Superiority depends on your intended usage, items, and purpose. For me, I usually prefer the extra durability of 1050 over 525 for bags like the pilot, plus I really dislike bags that don't hold...

    Truck weight info

    The Truck's info page indicates a weight of 13.1 oz/370 grams. Is this the weight for 525 or 210? Can anyone provide the weight of the other version?
