    If you mean the main compartment on the front, yes. But a 12D can be a very tight fit; I can fit some relatively pointy toed oxfords, but they protrude enough to require the pocket to be packed...

    Just as a followup, I did use the Sealskinz on my trip, and I was happy with them! Definitely better than hauling waterproof shoes around for 2 weeks. I just carried them in my backpack and put...

    My ATM card only worked the first time I used it on my last trip, but managed to last the other 14 days without cash (Western EU & Scandinavia) just fine. Even the toilets took credit cards.

    I've had more luck getting it under the seat than in the overheads on the regional cigars. I've found the under seat is the one place that, short of AV boxes, doesn't change much from plane to plane.

    I doubt very much that infected carry on bags are the prime vectors for long-haul sardine cans full of recirculated air. Particularly if you're handling your own carry on luggage.

    I've been streaming Tycho and Lindsey Stirling while working. Not relaxing enough to put me to sleep, not amped-up enough to drive me batty.

    A homemade mask like that won't protect you, but it is certainly useful to protect others. To that effect, everyone wearing masks of any type would be a good thing, especially considering the...

    I would imagine that is the problem, though I've never tried A30 packing cubes. The WF cubes completely fill the compartment, and even have to be stuffed in a bit.

    I wouldn't think the TS or WF would be good for carrying things like hairdryers. If you like the Synik, why not spring for the 30 version?

    By wall adapter I'm referring to the AC adapter/power brick. All of those are dual-voltage these days.

    Binder clips will work in a pinch, and you should always have a few of these around.

    Yeah, just go with the Rick Steves one, and her own chargers will work fine. No need for anything fancy these days, I haven't seen a single-voltage wall adapter in decades.

    Correct, the masks often seen being worn in airports aren't effective protection for the wearer, you'd need something with a seal and rated filter element.
