    Are you getting a Surface laptop or a Surface Pro tablet hybrid? I have a Surface Pro 4 (tablet hybrid) and use a 13D cache. It works well in my DLBC, DLBP, Pilot, S19 and S22, and fits vertically in...

    Assuming the Shadow Guide has the TARDIS-like qualities of other TB bags... a solar-powered desalination unit, a hammock tent, and an inflatable life raft.

    The Truck is my climbing gym bag of choice. Two pairs of shoes, harness, chalk bag hang out in the central compartment, one side compartment gets water bottles/snacks, the other gets miscellaneous...

    Two Monster Trucks plus a Large Shop Bag usually handles a week's worth of groceries for my family of three. The Monster Truck's ratio of open space to divided space is perfect for me - I have a...

    I don't have a ballistic DLBC handy to compare, but I'd imagine the added bulk would be negligible, like maybe a file folder's worth of added thickness at most.

    An empty Daylight Briefcase fits nicely flat in the Synik 22 and doesn't take up much room, especially in halcyon fabric.

    I use my Side Kick regularly with both the shoulder strap and the waist belt. It takes probably less than a minute to change it from one mode to the other, once you get the hang of the gatekeeper...

    Thank you so much! Good to know I won't be sacrificing much in the way of structure and stability if I go for 525 over 1050. Thanks!
  9. While I love the back-within-back packability of...

    While I love the back-within-back packability of halcyon, I think I would prefer my bag to stay upright if underpacked. Does the 1050 MB ever feel "boxy" when carried? I think I'm OK with it not...
  10. Maker's Bag fabric comparisons: 1050, 525, or halcyon?

    I'm contemplating picking up a Maker's Bag in the near future - I love my DLBC, but with winter upon us I'd really like some extra room to stash a sweater/hat/gloves, and the MB's extra volume looks...

    It doesn't have a zip, but I just wanted to give a shout-out to the Truck, which is probably the only tote whose internal compartments are large enough to accommodate shoes/towel etc. In 525...

    I'd love to see a pre-order run of the Guide's Pack in the non-navy parapack colors (black, steel, olive). I'd jump all over a black or olive Guide's Pack, but right now the non-navy side pockets are...

    I have a Women's Large Nano Puff without a hood, and there is no way it'll fit into a #1 Stuff Sack. However, it fits nicely into a #2, and there should be room for the hooded version if you compress...

    Mmmm, I need a bit more space. I'm opting for the Aeronaut Tiny House.

    Kindle Oasis: A Side Effect will, shockingly, fit a Kindle Paperwhite, but I believe the Oasis is notably wider than the the Paperwhite, so you'd need to size up to a Side Kick for sure.

    REGRETS
    I bought a Ristretto, used it for a conference, and then promptly sold it when I realized I vastly preferred my trusty DLBC. Similarly, the Pop Tote has failed to disrupt the Large Shop Bag...

    I would also argue against the Aeronaut as a gym bag. Its structure is too rigid to allow you to cram it into a locker easily. The nice thing about the Road Duffel and the Yeomen Duffels is that once...

    It depends what you bring to the gym. I use a Medium Road Duffel (precursor to the Road Buddy 36) as a gym bag, but I have a lot of gear (two yoga blocks, assorted rock climbing gear, two 20oz...

    That's pretty much my EDC too, but, as a woman, I generally don't have any pockets that can actually carry that. *grumble grumble grumble*

    I love my DLBC for days when I'm working around town....

    Just wanted to add my voice to the pro-Original Large Shop Bag chorus. I have one Zip-Top Shop Bag, and, while I'm sure it'll be very useful when I'm travelling, for every-day schlepping things...

    It's an Icebreaker merino wool cardigan in a size 1 stuff sack. I was kind of shocked it fit, to be honest.

    Here's what my maximum SK packout looks like. It's a very tubby little bag with this...
