  1. I don't have a ballistic DLBC handy to compare,...

    I don't have a ballistic DLBC handy to compare, but I'd imagine the added bulk would be negligible, like maybe a file folder's worth of added thickness at most.

    An empty Daylight Briefcase fits nicely flat in the Synik 22 and doesn't take up much room, especially in halcyon fabric.

    I use my Side Kick regularly with both the shoulder strap and the waist belt. It takes probably less than a minute to change it from one mode to the other, once you get the hang of the gatekeeper...

    Thank you so much! Good to know I won't be sacrificing much in the way of structure and stability if I go for 525 over 1050. Thanks!

    While I love the back-within-back packability of halcyon, I think I would prefer my bag to stay upright if underpacked. Does the 1050 MB ever feel "boxy" when carried? I think I'm OK with it not...
  6. Maker's Bag fabric comparisons: 1050, 525, or halcyon?

    I'm contemplating picking up a Maker's Bag in the near future - I love my DLBC, but with winter upon us I'd really like some extra room to stash a sweater/hat/gloves, and the MB's extra volume looks...

    It doesn't have a zip, but I just wanted to give a shout-out to the Truck, which is probably the only tote whose internal compartments are large enough to accommodate shoes/towel etc. In 525...

    I'd love to see a pre-order run of the Guide's Pack in the non-navy parapack colors (black, steel, olive). I'd jump all over a black or olive Guide's Pack, but right now the non-navy side pockets are...

    I have a Women's Large Nano Puff without a hood, and there is no way it'll fit into a #1 Stuff Sack. However, it fits nicely into a #2, and there should be room for the hooded version if you compress...

    Mmmm, I need a bit more space. I'm opting for the Aeronaut Tiny House.

    Kindle Oasis: A Side Effect will, shockingly, fit a Kindle Paperwhite, but I believe the Oasis is notably wider than the the Paperwhite, so you'd need to size up to a Side Kick for sure.

    REGRETS
    I bought a Ristretto, used it for a conference, and then promptly sold it when I realized I vastly preferred my trusty DLBC. Similarly, the Pop Tote has failed to disrupt the Large Shop Bag...

    I would also argue against the Aeronaut as a gym bag. Its structure is too rigid to allow you to cram it into a locker easily. The nice thing about the Road Duffel and the Yeomen Duffels is that once...

    It depends what you bring to the gym. I use a Medium Road Duffel (precursor to the Road Buddy 36) as a gym bag, but I have a lot of gear (two yoga blocks, assorted rock climbing gear, two 20oz...

    That's pretty much my EDC too, but, as a woman, I generally don't have any pockets that can actually carry that. *grumble grumble grumble*

    Just wanted to add my voice to the pro-Original Large Shop Bag chorus. I have one Zip-Top Shop Bag, and, while I'm sure it'll be very useful when I'm travelling, for every-day schlepping things...

    It's an Icebreaker merino wool cardigan in a size 1 stuff sack. I was kind of shocked it fit, to be honest.

    Here's what my maximum SK packout looks like. It's a very tubby little bag with this...

    I use mine for groceries every single time. They're absolute beasts, and wipe down easily. I've only had one bagger who was totally flummoxed by them: he insisted I would need more bags than the four...
