Tom Bihn Aeronaut & Short Road Trip
My Aeronaut and accessories arrived the other day!

I am a big laptop/camera bag fan and I finally have my own travel bag. Previously I would borrow or share space in my wife's roller suitcase(s). I prefer lightweight and well made bags - carrying only what I need. I also own a BooqBag Boa Slim side bag, BooqBag Boa Slim backpack, Crumpler 3 Million Dollar Home camera bag and a Waterfield MacBook Air 11" sleeve case.
The Tom Bihn bag and accessories are of equal high quality as my BooqBag and WaterField cases.
So in preparation of an upcoming road trip to visit family, I packed my Aeronaut to see what I could manage:

All of this gear fit into the Aeronaut bag and weighed 20 pounds with room to spare (15 pounds removing the camera bag and laptop).
If I need more room for clothing, etc., I can remove the camera case and/or laptop sleeve case(s) and use the Tom Bihn strap. Then I can use the backpack straps for the Tom Bihn bag. I use aluminum s-binders to attach the sleeve and camera case together with the Tom Bihn strap.
