    Cazique - You're welcome.

    Solar isn't available from the factory anymore. It's occasionally available on the secondary market (ebay, craigslist, etc.) or as trade through this forum.

    The Aeronauts have handles at both ends, which i find very useful for sliding my Aeronaut in and out of shelves, racks, airplane overhead bins and cars. The Road Duffels don't have those handles.

    Fulton,
    I recommend the Olight i3s on its lowest setting as a low level light. Its compact and uses one AAA battery. Currently available new from various vendors on ebay and probably other places.

    There isn't a new Cadet. Previously there were two sizes available but then the smaller size was discontinued. It happened a few years ago.

    Lime,
    The simplest way is to remove the plastic insert with the three ring binder from the FJN and carry one or more Levenger Circa notebooks inside, but not attached to, the FJN.
