    I've been streaming Tycho and Lindsey Stirling while working. Not relaxing enough to put me to sleep, not amped-up enough to drive me batty.

    A homemade mask like that won't protect you, but it is certainly useful to protect others. To that effect, everyone wearing masks of any type would be a good thing, especially considering the...

    I would imagine that is the problem, though I've never tried A30 packing cubes. The WF cubes completely fill the compartment, and even have to be stuffed in a bit.

    I wouldn't think the TS or WF would be good for carrying things like hairdryers. If you like the Synik, why not spring for the 30 version?

    By wall adapter I'm referring to the AC adapter/power brick. All of those are dual-voltage these days.

    Binder clips will work in a pinch, and you should always have a few of these around.

    Not strictly true. With enough sanitizer and scrub time, it will kill virtually everything. The effectiveness of hand sanitizer is variable, reduced by surface dirt and oils (i.e. less effective...

    Yeah, just go with the Rick Steves one, and her own chargers will work fine. No need for anything fancy these days, I haven't seen a single-voltage wall adapter in decades.

    Correct, the masks often seen being worn in airports aren't effective protection for the wearer, you'd need something with a seal and rated filter element.

    With the laptop bag in the middle pocket, it's going to hinge on the flatness of the shoes. When I started travelling weekly, I bought sneakers just for travel, whith mesh tops that I could crush...

    I think the Sea-to-summit ultra-sil is the best bet for packable. I don't really consider Bihn gear "packable", more multipurpose. It's generally durability overkill for a day bag.
