So, I'm all packed and ready to head to the airport for 9 days in Dubai and Pakistan. I've included pictures of my Tri-Star and Pilot so people can compare the size. I should mention that neither bag is overly full; the Pilot could easily accommodate a packing cube, while the Tri-Star would have space for a (not-overfilled) large packing cube if I were to remove my tweed jacket from the center section.
As an aside, for anyone who was interested in the Small Crumpler Haven for a Micro 4/3 camera: it fits very very well in the small front section of the Tri-Star, with room left over for a nice Op-Tech sling strap and a TB clear organizer cube for liquids.
I likely won't be around much for the next 10 days, but I'll try to follow-up if anyone has questions.
P.S. I make a motion that Tom Bihn rename Navy Ballistic Nylon to TARDIS Ballistic Nylon. It's a better description of both the color and how it
