    Grandma & Grandpa Go Traveling With Their New Aeronauts

    First trip with the Aeronaut(s). I ordered an Areonaut a couple of months ago and after receiving it Grandma decided she wanted one too. So, to try them out we scoured the web for cheap airfare and lodging in a city that offered great public transportation. We just got back after five days and are both sold on the Aeronaut as a "one bag" solution. We got on and off of buses and walked several blocks to hotels. No problem.

    I did quite a bit of research before deciding on the Aeronaut and felt that due to the design it would "bulge" less (assuming a rounded shape when packed to the limit) than other bags. I was not disappointed. I used packing cubes from Ebag and a packing folder from them as well. My whole bag weighed less than 20 lbs.

    The Aeronaut does have terrific bulge control, especially if you use cubes. You experience matches mine exactly.
