Seeking New Travel: Tom Bihn Aeronaut Best Luggage Ever

“The Aeronaut is specifically designed to be the largest carry-on size allowed by most airlines: 22″ x 14″ x 9″ (555 x 355 x 230 mm). This means I can pack till it bursts and still be reasonably confident that I won’t get the stink eye from a flight attendant. I haven’t checked a bag since 2007. No worrying about thieves or whether my valuables will make it in one piece – my bag never leaves my sight and no one touches it but me.”

GearGuide reviews the Cache

“Tom Bihn designed the Cache essentially as an envelope for the iPad. It’s built from high quality padded nylon material that provides approximately 6mm of iPad protection. The Apple device slides easily into the Cache and closes with a small flap that tucks into the envelope opening. When we first looked at the Cache, our initial reaction was that the flap would never stay in place given its size and lack of mechanical closure. Well, we were wrong. The closure worked flawlessly in our tests and kept the iPad securely inside.”

dang: Travel Tray Review (through the TSA security checkpoint)

“Just used the Travel Tray on a recent trip to Panama. It really made going through the TSA security checkpoint a breeze. Not sure if I read about it here or in another forum but what I did was put my 311 liquids in a quart ziplock bag and put that in the travel tray and the travel tray in my bag. When I got to the security checkpoint I took the tray out of the bag and the quart ziplock with my liquids out of the tray. I then put my watch, phone, etc (basically everything in my pockets into the travel tray, zipped it up, and threw that in the bag. This way all my stuff was not out in the open for anybody to pilfer. After going through security I took everything out of the tray and put the quart ziplock back in. It really made going through security a nice tidy affair.

I always have some kind of tray when I travel to put loose items like my phone, glasses, keys, coins etc so they are handy and don’t get lost. I was using one of those flat trays where the corners snap together and while they work good for a few items I found the travel tray much better because it has a greater capacity, plus it serves as a dual use item for going through security as described above.

This is a handy little item that you really don’t need but it really is extremely handy. I’ll definitely be using this on all future trips.”
