    Cadet fits in Tri-Star

    I really wanted to travel to Asia for business with just one bag, but the Brain Cell is just too small for me to attend all-day meetings with, so I decided to try stuffing my Cadet into the middle compartment of my Tri-Star. It works! Here's a picture of my fully loaded Tri-Star with Cadet and 4 days of clothes:

    Proof that there's a Cadet inside:

    Very cool pics! Thanks for sharing. I recently ordered a Tristar in Steel/Iberian and I am glad to see that my eyes are not deceiving me. The newest batch of Steel ballistic fabric has a distinct greenish coloration to it. Your pictures show this very well when compared to your cadet which appears to be a more pure gray color. I love both colors, but I was initially surprised how dark and ever-so-slighty green the new Steel items are.

    Yes, the color is very different between Tri-Star and Cadet. I would have liked my Cadet to have the same darker hue to match, but like you said, both colors are nice.

    I assume that's the smaller Cadet?

    No, it's actually the LARGE Cadet. I should have said that. The laptop on the bed is a MacBook Pro Retina 13".
