And I didn't have to wait for you to give your reasons....I could read your mind!
OK, so if I am looking for a bag to carry my stuff and my two small kids stuff for 3 day weekend plane trips, would the A30 or A45 be better? I am petite, so my tendency is the A30 for ease of carry, but with 3 people's stuff in there, is it reasonable? I would also have a tote style purse about the size of a small shop bag to carry in-flight bits, and my 7 yr old can carry his small LLBean pack (900 cu in) with a few things as well-although he continues to campaign for a SCB!
This would be my first of the travel TB bags, and I am sort of overly excited about the idea!!
Thanks again @Badger and @NWhikergal! I ordered my Aubergine A30 today. So excited for my first TB. Let the love-fest commence.
Synapse 19, Co-Pilot, Side Effect, Small Cafe Bag, Western Flyer, Tri-Star, Travel Tray, Passport Pouch, Small Organizer Wallet (this is the little guy that started it all...), several Shop Bags and Organizer Pouches. More to come, I'm sure...

I just ordered my aubergine yesterday and it it still said "pre-orders for mid-August" so I hope mine is in that batch for the next week or so! That would come before my birthday (A30 is my present to myself) and I would love to take it to London for my mid-August trip! Is it too optimistic to be imagining myself in the London Underground with the A30 on my back, a huge smile on my face, and a few stifled chuckles as I watch my colleague with his giant checked roller bag?

My aubergine A30 left Seattle yesterday - they are starting to ship, y'all! Let the anticipation commence!
Mine shipped today! Let the TBAS begin! At least I sent it to my work address this tins so I won't have to worry about missing the delivery.
I travelled there extensively without TB gear and my last trip was with TB A45, Tristar and S19.
The previous trips = bulky, uneasy to maneouver stuff, mostly checked.
This trip = all carry on, very lightweight, very stylish.
A45 and Tristar have backpack straps but they are as nice to carry with handles and you have the 4th option of the Absolute Shoulder Strap.
Don't Run, don't walk but sprint to the phone and the email to ask for expedited shipping.
PS: The TB gear on that trip made such a difference, we made 7 stops (pack/unpack) in 6 different countries, and the distance meant, I had better pack everything to the millimeter, because anything left, was lost.
Make sure to order a Travel Tray, the best accessory investment, you'll ever make.
