So now that I've got my new Brain Bag, I'm getting infected with the Tom Bihn bug. This is quality stuff.
I've got a Tumi wheeled carry on that is ok, but I'm hearing how many people love the Aeronaut. I agree that non-wheeled luggage is great for being on the street, uneven pavement, etc...., but I'm never wheeling my luggage in those environments. When I take this, it's from home to the airport to the hotel to the airport to home. Once I'm at the hotel, the luggage stays put.
So I'm trying to envision using an Aeronaut instead of a wheeled carry on or a wheeled checked back. Specifically, I'm trying to imagine carrying a brain bag and an aeronaut at the same time, and it seems like it would be really cumbersome. Can't wear two backpacks on one back. So it seems I'd have to wear one as a backpack and sling the other one over a shoulder, or carry one on one shoulder and the other on the opposite shoulder.
Has anyone traveled with both? How do you physically carry them and what's the experience like?
If I was looking at a trip to Europe with multiple stops and flights, then yes, I could absolutely see the benefit of just having 1 or 2 packs I can carry on. Load and go. But for the typical trips I take, where I fly somewhere and stay in the same place for a week, just not sure moving away from the wheeled option makes the most sense.
But I'm definitely excited to see how the Brain Bag handles the experience. Going to be way better than when I was lugging my Tumi ballistic briefcase through airports.
