    Correct, I don't want to go bigger than the cublet than I really have to. That being said, I have thought about the TC. I'm not a huge fan of north-south bags because the straps on them seem to chafe...

    Advice, please - My inhaler ate my TB bag

    Unfortunately, you read that right. Historically when I leave my house it's either with my l'il ole SE or simply my keys clipped to my Chums Marsupial wallet (I love that thing). Sometimes my phone...

    Such a worthwhile conversation. I'm trying to get a feel for the Synapse in either model and something's off in both cases. I've tried the S25 as both EDC and international travel, and ended up with...

    Yep! I have my metro card in a Pocket Pouch that lives in one of the pockets of my SE. I have it on a key strap so I can pull the pouch out and scan it as I go through the turnstiles without worrying...

    Kelly S pretty much nailed the idea. Graphic recording is about capturing the big ideas of a discussion in a visual way - this is done because the visual cues help jog memories better than lines of...

    Yes, the pens with the windows are Neulands. They're pretty much the go-to for graphic recording, and they don't bleed as much as the Copics. They're also a bit cheaper than the Copics, i think. The...

    Bag #1. A30, hands-down. Size does matter, so for reference I'm a 5'6 130 lb female, but the A30 is my go-to for 7-10 days trip around the world - muggy Asia in summer and frigid Europe in winter....
  8. Score one for the Maker's Bag (and some recommended mods)

    I have a love-hate relationship with the Maker's Bag. I wish it had a Poron top grab handle like the Co-Pilot, and a back stash pocket where I could have easy access to a file folder with my...

    I normally prefer halcyon but my S25 is in ballistic, because I wanted it for bike commuting and wanted something that wouldn't get damaged if I bit it on my bike. It's actually quite comfortable,...

    I'm voting A30 (FYI, I'm 5'6, narrow shoulders, more like a gangly reed than block of clay). My top three reasons to choose the A30:

    1. While it's not a hang-out-all-day backpack, it's much more...

    Marathons are tricky - you definitely want to pack the right way for your flight as well as to make sure you have everything you need for race day. To misquote John Lennon, "Whatever bag gets you...

    Ah! This is what my SE is and why it's always so heavy! I like thinking of it as an emotional bug-out bag. It contains:

    1. Several packets of tea
    2. A small notepad with pen, because how do...

    Ode to the Absolute Strap

    O padded, agile friend
    Too soon you met your end.

    Where and why did you separate from me?
    In the belly of the tour bus did you break free?

    Or do you wait, with a frustrated frown,
    At my...

    Oops. Just realized you said "iPhone" in the title. I'm paying attention, I promise.

    Does it work for Android? I have a friend who could use this with one of her relatives, but she uses Android, not Apple. Nice idea either way.

    I'm not sure. Have you used the waist straps that come with it? That's usually the most comfortable option for me when it comes to the MB.

    The shoes are going to be a pair of size 8.5/39 heeled clogs or size 8 Hoka One One's. I'll wear one and pack the other. This is the yoga mat:
