    Work-Gym Brain Bag

    Today was launch day for the Brain Bag - a pack I've let cultivate for a while to see if I would warm up to it.

    Not a minimalist packer, it didn't take long to find virtue in 36L.

    The Aeronaut PCBP fits exactly perfect in the front of the Brain Bag and easily packed all my gym gear; wide lug trail shoes, change of clothes, over the ear headphones, Naglene, all of it.

    The extra nice surprise is that the Lead's Pocket, which fits so well in the BB clips is sized just right for my iPad Air in its case - well padded and perfectly protected. And below the Lead's Pocket is plenty of room for my work laptop, my Side Effect with wallet, checkbook, personal stuff, and still lots of space for papers and whatnot.

    No more toting a gym bag + work stuff in 2 different bags. And it's so light to carry I can barely feel it even if I do look like a turtle. Maybe not a ninja turtle because it's not very stealth.

    Great review, @Rhofro

    Is this the newest version?
    Or which year you bought your Brain Bag? Because I am intrigued by yours Nordic Dyneema Lining. i haven't see a Dyneema Lining for Brain Bag before.

    That is a bag-in-bag situation. Its a Packin Cube Backpack of some sort I guess. And it can not be the latest version, because there is no steel on the outside (jet).
    But RhoFro will shed some more light on this.

    RhoFro how happy are you with the Leads-Pocked there?

    Yup, you are correct - Illkway. Definitely, a bag-in-bag.
    The photos are clearer on my big screen laptop - than my mobile.

    RhoFro wrote that it was an Aeronaut Packing Cube Backpack in the post that has the photo attached.

    It's a Black/Steel/Steel Parapack Brain Bag, with a Nordic Dyneema Aeronaut PCBP & Olive parapack Lead's Pocket. That size PCBP fits the Brain Bag perfectly.

    I love the LP as a BB accessory. It clips at the top and holds my iPad Air better than the cache did (because I have a case on it). I didn't realize the LP was so thoroughly padded but that's great for holding the Air. Plus, there are several pockets inside it for additional organization. I know it was designed for the Guide's Pack but it's a terrific addition to the Brain Bag as well. A great way to add some parapack goodness.

    Great pic of how you use your BB. The Parapack really shows even in this picture - I can see the shiny sheen!
    I definitely agree about the Lead's Pocket. It has so many interior compartments and the one exterior zippered compartment. The padding really makes this a protective item and you can use it as a waist bag or even a shoulder bag.

    Thanks
    Cheers!

    Thanks for the new idea! I hadn't thought about unclipping the Lead's Pocket, putting on a strap and using it as a shoulder bag. Brilliant! I may have to name this bag Optimus Prime because of how it transforms

    Hi, nice review about brain bags! The photos itself clearly shows how useful the bag compartments are. I see that the enclosed space is larger and can hold a specific thing. I think, it gives me a better idea to pack all those relevant things I needed for a work-out
