Low stock: the Aeronaut

Our Aeronaut maximum size carry-on travel bag is about to sell out in almost every color combination, but don’t worry: our Seattle factory has already cut the next batch of Aeronaut and they will ship within 4-6 weeks. Still, if you’re going on a trip before then and want to take the Aeronaut with you, we’d recommend placing your order right away.

Lufthansa Flyer: I Have Found The PERFECT Carry On Bag

“As I’ve mentioned throughout, I am very pleased with this bag [the Super Ego]. It is built from the highest quality ballistic nylon and is assembled very well. I absolutely love the pockets and compartments that exist throughout the bag. With my travel habits, I tend to build up a lot of little bits and pieces like ticket stubs, loose change, etc. and now I have a lot of convenient places to stow those things!

I could not find any flaws with it’s construction and look forward to traveling with this bag. Being made in the USA is a big bonus as well. Nice to see the pride and craftsmanship in the piece!

I would rate this bag a “Must Have”! You will not be disappointed.”
