Aeronaut with waist strap
I've used my Aeronaut on a few trips before, but today, I love it even more.
I flew on a rather small plane today (Embraer 145). I was the only person allowed to take their carry on piece onto the plane. Everyone else had to gate check their carry ons (including a few duffel type bags). The Aeronaut fit perfectly and I had it rather packed (I had books in both end sections and a laptop in the middle, so it wasn't really flexible).
The waist strap made it so much easier to carry the bag. I had a one mile walk home from the train station and was able to get most of the bag's weight on my hips.
My one complaint is that there was no way to keep my Swift on my shoulder. It just slid right off the Aeronaut's strap, so I had to carry it. I may try to place a hook or velcro loop on the shoulder strap so I can get it to stay.
For those who are curious.. the softcell for a 13 inch macbook does fit in a Swift and you can close it rather easily if you don't overstuff the Swift with too much yarn.
Question About Waist Strap
I have a waist strap on my Ego that I never use, nor do I think I ever will. Can I detach the waist strap from my Ego and use it on my new handy dandy Aeronaut?
