    The WF in ballistic is currently my main travel bag, and I'm a 5'3" female.

    The luggage look. Yup. It looks like luggage on small frames. No getting around it.

    Ballistic over Halcyon. The WF...

    I cut the rubber shoulder thing off my Cafe bags. You can double up the strap so it's half the length. Would that be enough for you?

    I have both bags, for me it's a bit overkill (too many pockets and pen slots to keep track of) and adds a lot of weigh to the MCB. For me, it's hard to stack things like that in the MCB, in the end...

    I use my Cadet more because I like being able to drop my computer in without a sleeve (the bottom is padded), which I'm sure many would warn against but it works for me. However, the lack of water...

    I have all three. I've tried to make myself let go of the Pop Tote because it does seem to overlap in features with the zipped shop bags, but I can't seem to quit it. Like others said, it stands up...

    Another vote for Speed Queen. And I live in drought country. I even managed to snag the last of the truly mechanical models when I bought it almost 3 years ago. I was told they were moving to...

    I wear it cross body separate from the DLBP. I like instant access to wallet, keys, phone, etc.

    I have all the bags you mention, and DLBP has been the kid bag of choice for the last few years (kids are 4 and 6). We have two DLBPs in Halcyon, and I'll be happy to add (not replace!) when they...

    Just want to point out that the Costco version of the Dyson V8 Animal Cordless does come with Hard Floor Tool - the Dyson rep said it's only for Costco. Not the one that comes with the Absolute. It's...

    DLBPs on the march in downtown Los Angeles. 2 families, 4 kids, 4 DLBPs (Black Cordura, Black Halcyon, Original Halcyon, Nordic Halcyon). Believe it or not, we did not coordinate this!

    I use the Large Cafe Bag FS for the DLBP. It has 2 mesh pockets that I use for holding water bottles for the kids.

    (4) I have both an A45 and a Cadet. The Cadet is a large bag with foam structure. A packed Cadet will not fit through opening the main compartment of a packed A45.

    I don't know if I'm qualified to answer since I in fact loved my DLBP on first sight. And I not only kept mine, I bought another. It is my favorite day trip bag. I put my wallet and phone in my Side...

    I use the SE inside the PCSB. Both in Black Halcyon. I freely admit I have the same combo in Nordic as well, but for my recent trip I used the Black. Both with a Black Halcyon DLBC (Daylight...

    I've used both the Cadet and Pilot. For both, if you max out with computer + brick + 3" of paperwork + everything else, you might be pushing it. But in your usual use case scenario, either would...

    Ditto both these points.

    I put up a token resistance, but I found I could not buy only one. TB, you *really* need to sell these as a two-pack to save us the extraneous clicking. And both in the...

    If you go that route, just remember you can only install a car seat in a window seat so be sure at least one of you had a window seat on each leg.

    This stuff is no joke! The sheer number of...

    For the baby, maybe consider the Cosco Scenera (sold only at Wal-Mart, sorry to say). It is inexpensive and ridiculously lightweight. On the segments where you score an empty seat for her, you can...

    I have used it. The most important thing is that your daughter is mature enough to leave the seat belt alone and not wriggle around. The vest only places the seat belt in a safe position; unlike a 5...

    Similar tip: A large Dyneema OP works very well inside a large A45 packing cube to separate smaller (or more delicate) items. (I like Dyneema because it has more give, but any large OP would do.)
