Decisions, Decisions: Picking the Right Bag

Paralyzed by indecision, TOM BIHN Forum member erg approached his fellow posters with the following request: “Help me decide on the right bag configuration for business travel with a laptop.”

The primary obstacle was first figuring out which travel bag was going to fit all of erg’s stuff. Would the mid-sized Tri-Star be large enough (his preferred bag) or would he have to get the larger Aeronaut?

Eventually, erg posted his packing list, somewhat unsure as to the possibility of squeezing all that stuff into the Tri-Star:

5 knit short sleeved shirts
5 undershirts
5 underwear
5 pairs of socks
1 pair of jeans
athletic shoes
toiletries
medications
laptop + charger
misc. small electronics
2 or 3 granola bars

Owning a Tri-Star himself,  forum member Mike kindly tested the packing list for erg, and even posted photos of the results so that everybody could see the results for themselves.
