    I prefer the A45. What size shoes do you wear? I wear 13s and they fit in an end pocket in the A45, but very challenging to cram into the Tri Star.

    A big factor for me when it comes to 1 bag travel when an extra pair of shoes are needed is shoe size. I wear a 12-13 and find that the TriStar just gets too tight. I’m a huge fan of the Brain bag...

    Another bag to consider is a Brain Bag. It is perfect for 1 bag short business trips. It is easy to use the straps to make the bag smaller for short trips and it can handle longer trips too. I...

    You will have a lot of trouble fitting size 11 shoes in the Western Flyer. I think the Brain Bag is much more versatile. It is bigger, but can also be compressed to a smaller bag. A medium size...

    Just did a 10 day international business trip with laptop, suit, 2 pair shoes, etc. Pilot and A45 were perfect. I have also done Brain Bag & Pilot combo, but typically when I use my brain bag it is...
  8. Brain Bag works great for business one bag travel

    Just completed a 4 day / 3 night business trip to DC and used only the Brain Bag. It was perfect for my needs.

    How I packed it:
    Front right pocket - Spiff Kit with all my toiletries

    No, not significantly. I think the difference would only be slight and don’t think it would be worth doing.

    Maui is the most beautiful place Iíve ever visited. Molokini snorkeling is amazing and it is perfectly calm. It is an off shore volcanic crater that completely blocks the waves and currents. ...

    The synapse 25 is 25 liters 13.4” wide and 20” high. The BB is 36 liters 14” wide and 18” high. From a length and width standpoint the bags are very similar. The BB is slightly shorter and wider. ...

    A pilot will physically fit in an A45, but it takes up a ton of space if the Pilot isn't empty. Here is a shot with my Pilot with all my every day carry stuff in it (laptop, notebook, folders, power...

    If you hate the look of the Brain Bag, I would definitely get the Synapse 25. It will easily hold what you describe.

    I personally like the A45 and would rather just pack less in it to keep the weight down so that I have the option to take more when absolutely necessary. Plus I have big feet, so my shoes fit much...

    I understand your comments and it pushes me toward saying there isn’t much added benefit to adding a TriStar. I view the A45 as versatile in that it “swallows enormous amounts of stuff” and is...
  20. Any compelling reason I should add a TriStar to my A45/Pilot combo?

    Iíve recently converted into the carry-on only camp. During my research I stumbled onto Tom Bihn bags and recently received an Aeronaut 45, Pilot, and multiple accessories. After 50 YouTube videos...
