    New Aeronaut

    I just got my new Aeronaut and thought I'd share a few pictures. I got the Aeronaut to replace my Red Oxx Air Boss. Guess that will be going up on eBay soon.

    Sorry about the quality of the photos. I took them with my phone. The Aeronaut is great. Great build quality that looks like it's going to hold up for miles and miles. I'm new to the packing cubes, but I think they're going to work out great. I know business travel may not be the Aeronaut's intended audience, but I was able to get 4 pairs of dress pants in the large packing cube, 4 dress shirts in the small, and the rest of my t-shirts, socks, and underwear in the other small cube. I don't mind ironing when I get to the hotel so wrinkling's not much a problem for me.

    I really like the single large opening of the Aeronaut. It fits my packing style. I didn't like having to guess which compartment my clothes were in with the Air Boss and then having to completely unzip each side to access them. The layout of the Aeronaut is perfect. One large compartment for clothes. One small one for shoes and another small one for electronics and toiletries.

    Thanks Tom Bihn and crew for a great product.

    4 dress shirts in the small?!! Wow! They must be folded very well to fit.

    It's funny because I thought if I have to business travel again I might need a bag like the Air Boss or Tri Star to help cut down on wrinkles instead of my Aeronaut but you went the opposite way.

    The nice thing about the packing cubes that you can see through is you can spot what you want easily. It's also neat to just pull the 2 small and one large out of the Aeronaut, throw them in a hotel dresser, turn and say "I'm done unpacking let's go" to your better half and then run before the thrown shoe hits you.

    I have two large packing cubes for my aeronaut and if I'm using it for a long trip, I usually fill one with bottoms (pants & skirts) and the other with all tops, underwear & socks. If it's a short trip, I'll share the aeronaut with my husband and each of us get a large packing cube.

    The single large opening works perfectly for me. I also like the pockets on the side for keeping the shoes separate and preventing bulking...
    In our household: Black/Steel Aeronaut (with 2 large packing cubes and Absolute shoulder strap), Forest/Steel Aeronaut (1 large and 2 small packing cubes), Olive/Wasabi medium Cafe Bag, Linen/Olive Medium Cafe Bag, Cocoa/Cocoa/Wasabi Imago, Cardinal/Hemp/Steel Imago, Hemp Little Swift, Solar Shop Bag, Plum/Wasabi Side Effect, Black/Steel/Solar Smart Alec, Horizontal and Vertical Freudian Slips, TB Wallet, Hemp Little Swift, FOT pouch, Black/Olive ID

    It's very cool to see pictures of the Aeronaut and the Airboss together since they are compared so often.
