    I think I will use the combination of café sitting and bag lockers for traveling. Off topic, I struggle with this luggage issue over 30L, I only imagine the time and money people dragging multiple...

    Good to hear luggage lockers work. I will be intentionally traveling smaller towns serviced mostly by 1-2 bus stops to local train stops. I had not looked at similar smaller stations if they had...

    The version A30 I have is 2015-ish. (zippers outward, no lockable zippers, no extra handle to move bag around or top grab handle by the backpack straps). I looked throughout the pocket and don't...

    With the first mention of them here with the Trinity bags, any possibility the removable/swappable Shoulder Straps would be a new feature to the Aeronauts or other travel bags to allow weight saving...
  5. Traveling with Luggage between Check in and Check out

    I will be staying at separate AirBnb's in separate cities in Western Europe and will travel via train/bus between them. Some are only an hour or two apart. Checkout at some is about 10am and check-in...

    I am on the fence about the monster truck for the same reason and wish for the same concept. My reason is what is if I have a large item that doesn't fit in the main compartment? I have to revolve...

    I recently bought a used Aeronaut 30. Someone may say it would never work and don't try it at home. The padded construction of the shoulder straps zippered compartment is not that different to what...

    In a similar style, a small Organizer Pouch or a small Double Organizer Pouch fits a passport. I could also see value in a passport wallet being like a medium DOP with front pocket being like a...

    Tom Bihn Studio pictures of "families" of bags together. TB pictures are wonderfully done. Forum photographers are skilled and out in the wide world. What I would like to see is an in-studio side...

    I use a Medium DOP with a Mini COP, COW, and mini Ghost Whale for a Receipts/Mail/Coupon/Checkbook/Coin organizer. It lives in my vehicle, moves to office on office days. Very handy to know where...

    Great to hear the Synapse 25 is working out well for you. From my experience with my cordura S25 and other items made with ballistic, the material "relaxes" in first few months and the items seem to...

    That makes sense. To me the fabrics, 200d halcyon 210d ballistic, seem very similar, but all this micro-differences certainly change manufacture. The synapses, syniks, dlbc, and many other have...
  13. From halcyon and ballastic PCSB I have, I would...

    From halcyon and ballastic PCSB I have, I would have said halcyon was heavier. I looked now at the PCSB page and 210d ballastic is 6% heavier than 200d halcyon version. I don't think that is...
  14. Have Aeronauts ever had Ballastic for interor fabric?

    When I have looked, I recall only ever seeing halcyon fabric for the interior of the Aeronauts. Other large bags have had halcyon for interiors. It appears it would open a wider choice of colors if...

    It appears you may own one or tried in person one of the bags with the advanced zipper features. Is using the feature on the zipper time consuming or a hassle?

    Both pictures of designs you...

    My two cents after looking at your photos is packing cubes could help from the organization standpoint and compression of clothes. (No loose ends to unroll and entangle too) I was not a believer in...

    A separate water bottle pocket or a internal water bottle loop like the Luminary?

    I agree with the XL size DLBC. I like my DLBC and I also recently acquired a Pilot. If the 15-17 L capacity of...

    That seems like a simple addition for 95% solution. I don't carry expensive things, just time-consuming and expensive to replace while away from home things.

  22. Lockable zippers and next step bag security

    Lockable zippers are great. When secured, they don't separate and contents don't fall out. However, according to several articles online, they are not access proof from bad intentioned persons -...
