    Packing an Aeronaut vs. packing a TriStar

    I have a TriStar and while it's great for short business trips, I find that it's less useful for vacation trips. The problem here seems to be related to packing shoes and worrying about packing souvenirs. Currently I use an Osprey Porter 46 if I need a more open "floor plan". The Osprey is tough to get into once it's all zipped and clipped shut, which is great when you're worried about security, but not so great for one-bagging. I'm considering an Aeronaut, even though I like the Osprey. I can't rationally justify another bag, but I had a birthday. And I'm getting a promotion. And, and, and ...

    To cut to the chase, does anyone have a video or set of photos that demonstrates packing the TriStar vs. packing an Aeronaut? Same contents, preferably.

    Hello!

    I don't think I've seen a post for an exact packing comparison between the two, but there are plenty of packing lists posted throughout the site. Hopefully someone may have photos of their own attempts to pack one vs. the other! Interesting comparison that way!

    As an owner of an Osprey Porter 46, I like your description for it. It IS tough and slow to get into once it's "buttoned" up. But I see it as a plus when traveling overseas, as it gives me an extra sense of security. And once I reach my destination, unless I'm off to the next stop in a few hours, unpacking isn't too difficult. The openness of the bag makes it easy to organize with packing cubes and folders. Just my two cents.
