this video demonstrates how you can carry a suit and more in the aeronaut maximum carry-on bag.
Maverick: will this garment sleeve fit in a Western Flyer?
Maverick you sly fox. That is impressive. I have done it without the garment sleeve using the large Western Flyer packing cube in the Aeronaut, which I posted a while back. The key is to undo the back wall snaps for the side dividers and to load the center compartment first. I love your trick of turning the cube inside out for the shoes to go in. I remember being amazed at the little extra pockets of space I kept finding, particularly in the center compartment. Now if only we didn't have to go outside the "family" for a garment sleeve....
Well that's good I checked back... Was just looking at the EC garment sleeve on Amazon but I don't need right away. I did want to ask about jacket size. I wear a 44 and sometimes have difficulty fitting it into sleeves. I assume Tom's will have some magical properties but I was curious what size jacket you wore as a reference as to whether mine will work....
I also didn't see a tie. My tie did very well when I bundle wrapped it pressed inside two pairs of pants on the outside of my bundle. Any trouble in the garment sleeves with the tighter wrap or no?
Wow! Impressive video.
A few questions about it:
1: Were you using the Eagle Creek Pack-It Garment Sleeve (Item EC-40462)?
2: How easy is it to unpack/get the wrinkles out of the suit once you get to the hotel?
3: What kind of wooden shoe trees were you using in that video?
4: Do you think you still had room for items in the Aeronaut's zip-flap over the main compartment? Could you have put your 3-1-1 Clear Organizer Cube in there?
Thanks for the informative video.
Just posting a follow-up question about this subject: has anyone been packing a suit the way that Maverick demonstrated in his excellent video? If so, what has been your experience?
