    Question The Compass?

    A while back, there was reference to a small carry-on, the Compass. Is that still in the works? Without knowing anything about it, I was wondering if it would/could be used as a gym bag...kind of like a duffel bag?

    It is still in the works. Tom's also planning a gym specific bag, but the Compass would probably work great too.

    The Compass should be really soon. Gym bag? Maybe late this year, early next.

    Excellent! I am looking forward to seeing the Compass - 2 possible new bags to buy (Compass, Tristar). TB bags will soon have their own closet in our house!! (Probably where I will have to live when my wife finds out a new bag or 2 may be on the way....)

    What's the difference in size between the Compass and Tristar?

    It won't happen if you get her a Small Cafe Bag, she will fall in love with the brand, then you might need two closets for TB bags.

    Not a bad strategy.... except we may run out of closet space!

    We're hoping to have a Compass ready for pictures at the end of May. It is the smallest of the travel bags -

    Aeronaut > Tristar > Western Flyer > Compass
