Questions about the Aeronaut
Iím new to the forums and discovered Tom Bihn a few months ago when looking for a Christmas gift for my husband. At the time I wanted to get him a 11Ē Macbook Air case, I was going to buy the cache but shipping a (relatively) small item to Australia really made it a bit cost prohibitive.
Anyway, fast forward a few months and Iím now looking at buying some luggage. I need a versatile bag that will handle weekend car trips and airline travel. Iíve read as many reviews as I can find and looked at lots of photos to try and decide what I want. The problem is, I like so many of the TB bags! After many late nights pouring over this forum (and others), I think Iím close to purchasing an Aeronaut but just wanted to confirm a few things with you kind people!
Colour Ė yes, vain I know!
- Can anyone share pictures or opinions of the black Aeronaut with Iberian interior? Iíve seen a few black exterior shots but not with the Iberian inside. I was tossing up between the steel/solar and the black/Iberian but I think the black might hold its style over time more (I intend to keep this bad for as long as possible).
- Likewise I was considering getting the Iberian Packing Cube backpack, is it a really bright/vibrant red? I donít want anything too bright and would go for the steel if so.
Shoulder strap Ė it seems that it does NOT come with a shoulder strap, is this correct?
Side zipper Ė there is an external zipped pocket (near the top in backpack style), could you fit a side effect in there?
Thanks in advance!
Absolute Shoulder Strap is very versatile
As others have mentioned, the Absolute sholder strap is worth the cost.
I use it on my:
- Large Cafe Bag (ordered with bag)
- EGO Messenger bag (used when I need to transport my wife's laptop and my netbook)
I also found the that the strap makes an excellent camera strap for my Canon DSLR. Very easy to remove the strap when mounting on my monopod/tripod/hiking staff.
