    In my mind this would be like a messenger version of a Shop Bag. Simple, light, couple of big open pockets and o-rings to make it configurable but not a lot of other features built in.

    The Cafe styling kills it for me along with the lack of a quick-access pocket for phone/keys, and lack of a zipper closure across the top. If this has to go flat under an airplane seat then small...

    I see a lot of references to the Maker's Bag being sized like a Swift. I know there was talk of a crossbody Swift. Is the MB meant to tick that box?

    If so, I have to say I'm a little bummed. I...

    Heathrow security was OK with my 3DCC recently but Aberdeen made me rebag everything (they supplied the bag). I've been able to use unconventional 3-1-1 bags at many airports, but on the rare...

    These pictures are incredibly helpful! I really like this bag. It'd be huge for me to use as a "souvenirs" bag, but I can definitely see using it for road trips, camping, and travel with bulkier gear...

    I have to say, I really love the Yeoman. We have two big Eagle Creek backpacks that we never use because they seem so fussy to load up. Even though the Yeoman isn't really a backpack, I think we'd...

    Ingenious! I'm still thinking through my options but I think a mason jar is where it's at, and it's a matter of finding one that fits along with the thermos food jar. Appreciate all the help!

    EB is comparatively heavy and bulky because of its rigid structure. I think it would be overkill for your usual carry, personally. How about a Pilot? The softer sides make it more adaptable, and it...

    Flip a coin. When you saw how it landed, how did you feel? A pang of disappointment or a sigh of relief? That's your answer.
