    I use this exact setup interchangably with all my bags:

    A cheap insulated insert from Amazon (remove and toss the strap)--there are definitely more expensive options, but I think it's hard to tell...

    I thought for a second that the lumbar pocket might be a cool idea--especially if it opens into the body of the bag similar to side pockets in the TAD Axiom 24. But, having something take up space...

    I LOVE this umbrella. And they stand behind the lifetime warranty. After about 3 years of use (including 2 in windy Chicago), the auto close mechanism failed (it still opened w the spring and could...

    I think the first point is interesting. Why would you want the water bottle and quick grab zips to be on opposite sides?

    I pondered it for a second, thinking it'd be easier recognition, but then...

    I haven't looked too closely at the Brain Bag because it's too large for me (and I find that compression straps get in the way the 95% of the time when you don't need them), but it doesn't look like...

    I've seen people use that pocket for a laptop/tablet but I never understood it because it seems to distribute the weight poorly--away from your back. I will say that it does get in the way and I've...

    My first TB packing cube purchase was a set of small laundry and non-laundry A30 cubes. At first, I did not like the laundry cube. It just felt harder to pack even with the floating divider that...

    I think I've probably purchased at least one of every TB organizational accessory by now. And the ones I keep going back to are the A30 small packing cubes (fit perfectly into the A30, a GoRuck GR1,...

    It's crazy that these devices have almost become vintage gaming icons with the rise of mobile games. Very cool SE color combo up there btw!

    Ah glad it's not only me that finds the Cache to be particularly thick.

    That said, I'd be 100% behind a dedicated laptop compartment. If I'm carrying a backpack, it's because I want to carry my...

    Compression cubes have their place--I also have the EC Spectre and use them when I'm looking to save a bit of space. (Otherwise, I just use regular TB non-compressable because it helps to save one...

    This is an incredible collection of kit...I fully understand how expensive it is to keep extra SKUs around, but boy do I wish that TB would bring back the full rainbow of Halcyon colors.

    Thank you for those pictures! I also fold my LZTSB (not roll) in a very similar way and it packs into a small pocket in another bag as well.
