Our Packing Cube Backpack and Shoulder Bag are convertible packing cubes
designed to be dual-purpose: use them as Packing Cubes to organize and
pack your clothing inside of the Aeronaut, Tri-Star, and Western Flyer
carry-on travel bags, and once you arrive at your destination, unpack
and use the Packing Cube Backpack or Shoulder Bag as a day bag for
around town: pack a light jacket, map, water bottle, wallet,
lunch/snack, and go! Instead of traveling with a Packing Cube and a
separate shoulder bag or light backpack, you’ve carried one bag that
works as both, saving space and weight.
Tom has redesigned the Packing Cube Shoulder Bag to be a new, slightly smaller size that
fits well all three of our carry-on travel bags: the Aeronaut, Tri-Star,
and Western Flyer. The new size has a wonderful proportion that makes it
even better to carry as a shoulder bag.
New is the Packing Cube Backpack (Tri-Star/Western Flyer), designed
specifically for (you guessed it) the Tri-Star and Western Flyer. The
Packing Cube Backpack (Aeronaut) continues to be available. Unlike the
Packing Cube (Aeronaut), the Packing Cube (Tri-Star/Western Flyer) does
not have separate bottom compartment. Instead, it has a diagonal
zippered pocket on the front, similar to the Packing Cube Shoulder Bag.
Due to some last-minute technical difficulties, we won’t be able to post
pictures of the new Packing Cube Shoulder Bag and Packing Cube (Tri-Star/Western Flyer) until early next week. Pictures of the previous
version of Packing Cube Shoulder Bag are posted until then, and pictures
of the Packing Cube Backpack (Aeronaut) will give you a general idea of
the Packing Cube (Tri-Star/Western Flyer) though please note
that the compartments are different.
