    I LOVE Island! And I think NWS goes with everything but it looks like a special, not-obvious choice with red and orange. But I'll never get an Iberian lining because the inside red makes me think of...

    I think an S19 would be cutting it close. Your packing list is a lot like mine -- and you can see how it fits in the S19 and the L15. I think you'd end up stuffing the S19 to capacity, which IMO...

    Padded GWOP! Is that possible? Or is the padding not bendy enough?

    I empty my deodorant container into a tiny pot. I apply it with my finger and save a bunch of space in my bag!

    My S19 is the older side pocket design, so they're bigger now, but even mine fits a mini box of wine.

    S19 would not have been a big enough bag for me in grad school. When I finished and got a...

    I love Nebulous, grey is my go to color for everything. The only aubergine thing I have is an A5 GWOP. It's gorgeous and magically pseudo neutral. If you love it, go for it.

    I use a mini caribiner to clip a water bottle to an o-ring in my Truck. It only works with bottles that have a loop for attaching, but you always have to pair the right bottle with the right bag.

    For the academics among us, because it made me simultaneously laugh and cry:

    Horror movie or your doctoral program?

    I agree with @gqb that the S19 could work for you just great. All the little stuff will probably fit in the front compartments, laptop and tablet in the main compartment. The S19 does not look overly...

    Thank you so much for this! You confirmed many things I learned:

    1. The L15 is amazingly capacious and lightweight. What a great bag.
    2. My experiment also ended with me dumping all the stuff...

    If I were you, I'd go with the L12. The DLBP is also great, but the water bottle holder, padded straps, and smaller size make it the winner.

    My main travel bag is an A30 in Nordic halcyon. There's no problem with durability, it's great. I even checked it once and it came back smudged and beaten, but was like new after I wiped it down with...

    L15 v S19: a revelation

    Thanks! The side view comparisons are very interesting. I'm looking forward to hearing if you can actually fit more in the extra 3L. :-D
