With my beautiful wife (she has no taste in men...her only apparent fault)
With my beautiful daughter (who luckily looks like her beautiful mother!)
These two shots are on the bridge at the Accademia in Venice, and I have to say that the Aeronaut saved my life this day. I cannot quite convert my wife and daughter to wheelless suitcases and we got dropped at the Zattere stop when we were informed that this shuttle does not go to Per San Marco on this trip. Sigh.
This meant a long walk with all of our luggage to get to the luggage storage place for the day before flying out that night. With the Aeronaut on my back I was able to cart their suitcases across the stairs across all the canals. I simply would not have been able to do it if I had my own wheeled bag. I did make my daughter carry her own pillow!
The Pilot was a BRILLIANT day bag in Amsterdam. It carried plenty, was comfy and never got a second glance even at the museums that don't allow bags and packs inside. If only I could convert my daughter off of her beloved (and currently trendy) Kavu bag.
My ONLY complaint about the Pilot on this trip is that I wish there was an option for a quick adjust strap. I like to snug it up tight behind when I am using it messenger style and that is kind of a pain with the adjustment mechanism on the standard strap.
