Tri-Star vs. Western Flyer
As the owner of a Western Flyer and Aeronaut I wondered if the Tri-Star had anything to offer, and I finally took the plunge, bought one and used it on a trip this weekend. In hopes that my observations may be of use I offer this: the Tri-Star feels a lot bigger than the Western Flyer, affording just enough extra space to make packing, for example, an extra sweater, a gift acquired during travel or a larger camera, comfortable. The backpack straps, at least on this 6'2" male, are incredibly comfortable — more so than my Aeronaut and even my Smart Alec. In short, although with packing cubes it's an expensive purchase it's one I'm glad I finally made.
