    I happen to change the length of a shoulder strap frequently and wonder about the Icon. Sometimes I make a strap shorter to wear a bag higher up on my back; other times it's longer so that the bag is...

    Love/hate for me. I think the red airplane large label is charming on its own. But as a big TB fan, I have a lot of TB stuff and often carry more than one item at a time. The big label on a backpack...

    I use a very underpacked A45 as well. The A45 would scrunch up awkwardly on my back until I got the frame sheet--it smoothed out the back of the bag and fixed my problems with the fit as a backpack....

    Thank you! I love O-rings and pouches but one of the downsides of the lighter weight bags (like a halcyon DLBP, or shop bags) is that heavier pouches can pull the side of the bags down with them.

    This happened to me too. It took quite a while to push the cap up and out of the super snug fabric sleeve. I sent feedback to Customer Service and was told more recent stays don't have caps on them...

    If you’re going to bring both a Pop Tote (or a zip shop bag) and a DLBP on the trip, you should also consider just using the zippered tote as your personal item on the plane and packing away the DLBP...

    It’s never a bad idea to have enough time to allow for security to inspect your bag again. If the gifts meet the carry on rules you should be fine to carry them on, but they may do a second look if...

    I like the DLBP very much, but I really, really wish there was 1" webbing sewn on top of the shoulder straps to allow for a sternum strap (like on the retired Sprout, which also had the same basic...

    Hmmm, that's possible. But I've had several different TB 1 1/2 inch straps from over the last three? years and have removed and replaced the pads off of all them. Usually I prefer to leave off the...

    The shoulder pad can be moved to the other side of the tri glide piece (that is, the shoulder pad can be placed on the doubled-up side of the strap). It's a little tricky but not impossible to wiggle...

    The A45 frame will fit in the SA if you are just slipping it into the bag without "installing" it. The A30 frame is the frame that fits best in a Smart Alec if you are using the cache loops and...

    The FS for small cafe bag is about 10 inches tall, and fits in the DLBC main compartment right way up, not sideways. I only have to tuck in the FS webbing loop when zipping up the DLBC.
