“At the risk of being a “me too”, I just finished my first trip with the Tri-Star and I have to say I am impressed with this bag. It’s capacity is great. The organization possible with the bag and 3 compartments makes it a breeze to pack for both business and casual wear. I like the compression straps in the back compartment. On this trip I had both business and casual clothing. I was able to separate the clothing while packing so I could get one type of clothing choice without disturbing the other – especially nice for the brief hotel stay where you really don’t want to completely unpack if you can avoid it.
The bag is very comfortable to carry both with the main carry handle and using an Absolute Strap. I was able to move quickly from the ends of Atlanta airport concourses to the train to the end of a different concourse (why do they always park the planes as far as possible from the concourse entrance when you have the least amount of time to get from one flight to the next?) As I noted in an earlier post, the bag (about 3/4 full) easily slid into the overhead bins on small regional jets – if stuffed, it would take a bit of effort to get the bag in, but it would fit as long as there is a bit of give in whatever you have packed. ”
