    Western Flyer is perfect if this is a 1-2 night business trip. For personal trips then I would look also at more minimalist bags like the Pilot or NFTD. But for business trips you will want room for...

    Here is what I use. 1 side cube, 1 small cube, 1 laundry sack, 1 large cube. This leaves one side open for misc, the laundry cube takes the place of a small cube.
