    Links to external bag reviews

    Links to reviews of our bags by blogs, magazines, newspapers, and websites. We usually update this list quarterly (sometimes more often) with new reviews. By all means, if there's a review we missed, post a response with a link to the review here and we'll update the master list. Dates (if found) of reviews are listed; dates are not listed for links to forum discussions with more than one person listed.

    Well done! A very helpful resource to be able to refer back to packing, usability, or other info about our bags.

    I think this one got missed in all the excitement over the Guide's Pack and Founder's Briefcase launch.

    Found another Aeronaut review at Snarky Nomad´s blog: 5 of the best travel backpacks for global adventures.

    Aeronaut is the first choice.

    Tom Bihn is known for exceptional attention to detail, tiny little organizational perks, and super tough materials. They tend to win over fans for life, and that’s how long their bags last, too.
