    I agree with this--it seemed like a good feature when I originally bought it, and I enjoyed my Tumi EZPass (or whatever they called their checkpoint friendly laptop solution) back before I started...

    Agree that the small snake charmer is pretty roomy. I don't own the large, but can't imagine needing that much space. I have a pretty hard time filling the small already.

    Much to my embarrassment, I went back to look at my 3DOC and a few other pouches that I have with the clear urethane window. And you're absolutely right. It was not a problem with the urethane. It...

    As far as organization, regardless of the bag, I think there are three items that Tom Bihn makes that are relatively unique in their category and better than anything else available.

    I always thought the metal hardware was a selling point. But those updated clips do look great!

    I've used the large and small A30 cubes in both a B&R baseline widebody (fits fine--use stuff sacks and another miscellany to fill the rest of the space) and Rimowa Cabin (fits very well).

    The drop is pretty terrifying.

    I've used a simple Apecase (https://amzn.to/2sgyZAB) in lieu of a Tenba insert because I liked the color better. But in the end, found that it was too bulky...

    Wow--I didn't expect to see that! More uses for duct tape--I can't sew either, but I like these duct tape solutions.

    When traveling domestically, I use a Side Effect which fits in the vertical water bottle pocket or the main compartment...honestly, usually the main compartment. I like it because it's a little...

    I've put a pair of shoes in there (just in shoe covers, no fancy shoe cube). The PCSB also fits if packed properly. Otherwise, a side-effect and a few extra things go well there.

    Love that Benchmade--one of the all time great EDC knives ever made.

    That's also an interesting makeshift wallet.

    Got back from an overnight trip with my Synik and I'm thinking it was just the way I had the bag set up last time. I had the straps cinched up pretty tight and a lot of weight in the bottom outside...

    Ah, it might just be the extra inch. I've had a lot of success with the side access (the only one I use) with my Lenovo Thinkpad (14") and an iPad Pro in the compartment at the same time. And while...

    I have both the A30 and S30.

    I do prefer carrying the A30 as a backpack or by the top handle. I use the absolute strap sometimes, but don't find it to be that comfortable when loaded up. And...

    NICE! This method is far easier than the kludge I used. It's one of those situations where you wish you had thought of that yourself.

    Yep--this is what I was going for. Optionality is a win.

    I didn't even realize my Aeronaut came with a chest strap...I must have removed it that quickly.
