    I agree with the other comments. I'm also a fan of the disco'd large zip-top shop bags, which I use constantly. I have a couple of the zip-top shop bags (one large, one small), but I use them for...

    Zest, solar, yes. Sitka, yes. I love those colors - solar for interiors, sitka for accessories, and zest for everything.

    Help me find a gym bag

    Currently, I'm using the small zip-top shop bag, which is a tight squeeze (bigfoot sneakers...) Previously, it was the daylight backpack. Both are a little small. I've also tried a LSB (halcyon, no...

    Four planes, A30 as carryon, zip-top shop bag as my personal item with my side kick (and a bunch of other stuff) inside.

    WOW.

    This bag performs like a combo of the small shop bag and the pilot....

    Highly recommend the Pilot with the absolute strap for air travel. It goes over the handle of a rollaboard, will *stand* under a plane seat leaving lots of room for your legs, and will hold a change...

    The smaller Eagle Creek 15" packing folder is a perfect fit for the A30 (also for the back of the Pilot). I use this for stuff I want to fold in the A30. It's about the same size as the Specter...

    The A30 is the perfect weekender bag for me, particularly when flying. It can fit under most plane seats if needed, and it will go in the overhead of regional jets. I never worry about having to...

    I agree about more limited-edition halcyon colors, too. I prefer having accessories that aren't the same colors as the linings of my larger bags, so I can spot them easily. But all of my larger bags...

    Since you're 6'4", it's worthwhile pointing out that the pilot can stand upright under most plane seats, leaving you plenty of legroom (I'm 6'0", and love it for this.)

    The wonderful thing about the A30 is that it will fit under a plane seat, at least if one of the side pockets isn't loaded to its full width. So it gives me some peace of mind when getting on crowded...

    A45 upsizing review

    For a couple of years now, my default go-to bag has been my A30. It doesn't always work out; sometimes stuff has to get offloaded into another bag, but I usually start with the A30. I often find...

    How big are your planner and notebook? You may be better off with the MCB, although if you can fit all that in the SK, you'll be fine with the SCB.

    upsizing from A30 to A45
