    I've always found too many colors to be very distracting. I have no idea how people color code; my brain simply does not compute. All I see is an array of colors and I spend much too much time trying...

    My "one-bag" go-to combo is the Smart Alec with the Side Kick as an UMP. I use the SK as a crossbody purse at my destination. If I need to add a second bag, out comes my small Yeoman Duffle. I...

    I two bag travel with the Smart Alec + Side Kick as UMP and the small Yeoman Duffle. It's more space than I typically need, so the YD is under packed 95% of the time. I tried the mini size and loved...

    The only packing cubes I have are Eagle Creek: the regular, OG ones; the lighterweight silnylon ones; and the Specter compression ones (but mine aren't labeled "Tech" like the ones you linked to).

    I think the mini SOS strap is a bit overkill for a Travel Cubelet; SOS/Absolute straps come with medal hardware that isn't insubstantial. It seems to me that whatever solution the OP works out will...

    If you search metal adjuster triangle or plastic adjuster triangle, you'll find it. It appears to come in 1" or 1.5" widths. HTH.

    For anyone with sewing skills, "Zest" is a color/fabric used in a lot of backpacking/outdoorsy applications. I have noticed some uber-lightweight backpacking companies using orange dymeema that is...

    I tried and failed to even get the hype of 200d halcyon shop bags, even in my fave TB color of all time: Zest. They just were too floppy and not sturdy enough given the price. I felt that a well made...

    It's hard to get size reference, but the Mini YD is teeny tiny, in a good way. It looks like, well, a miniature duffle bag. Think of a duffel bag scaled down for a pre-schooler. The small visually...

    Lately I've only taken weekend or long weekend trips and my small Yeoman Duffle and Travel Cubelet (EDC purse) have served me incredibly well.

    For true one-bagging, I can pair my SA with a Side...

    I have returned every SSB I've purchsed but my LSBs are my workhorses. I'm short (5'3") and the LSB does not drag the ground, so that is not an issue for me. I vastly, vastly prefer the LSB over the...

    Put the dress inside of a dry cleaner's bag and fold/roll accordingly. The plastic will keep the dress from rubbing together and will prevent wrinkling and creasing. You can also use tissue paper if...

    Here's a throwback pic from @peregrina with an olive cordura medium cafe bag, so the ballistic would have more of sheen to it. I've never seen Olive 1050/525d ballistic in person, but all my years on...

    Pay attention to the flight attendant's safety speech prior to takeoff. Everybody has heard it so many times they just tune it out, but for your first flight please don't do this. This is a thing I...

    If I recall correctly, TB has only done limited runs of 400d halcyon and 525 ballistic shop bags, so I'm not surprised that the heavier fabrics aren't in the current production lineup. Maybe TB will...
