    After selling my WF and using an AER Travel Pack 2, I really miss my WF :(

    I don't have the Topo briefcase, but a quick search of its dimensions tells me it fits the WF with a bit of room left. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask

    I think your best bet would be to call Tom Bihn themselves to get a better idea. The Surface Book is tricky as it's not a clam shell, so one side is larger than the other.

    If you like melons, please please please go to Furano (though its pretty far up in Hokkaido).

    That place has literally the best melons I've ever tried in my life, and I normally don't like melons!...

    For this issue I would definitely recommend the WF. I travel often by plane, and use the WF almost every time. Shoes fit wonderfully there, and so do headphones (it's like a perfect fit) in the front...

    Was anticipating a WF + Brain Cell picture (which I was thinking of doing) and you ended up with a DLBC (which I'm not thinking of doing) :(

    You definitely can, especially with the reserved seat. Heck I brought my 24" luggage roller, and my parents brought their 28" rollers each and we had no problem

    The most durable shirt I've worn is Icebreaker's Tech T-Lite, though it is a bit scratchy (you'll get used to it).

    As per usual, cordura is heavier but tougher and dyneema lighter but less tough.

    I would recommend dyneema though, as the weight saving in a heavy backpack is worth it

    I travel often, about once or twice per month for 3 - 7 days. True the S25 would be easier to sell.
