I have a couple more questions on the Tri-Star.
1. If a laptop is not packed in the middle compartment, what TB accessories fit in this space? Obviously items cannot be too thick. What are people placing in the middle? What would fit in addition to a MacBook Pro laptop inside of a Cache?
2. Are the front and back compartments the same dimensions? Could an Eagle Creek Pack-It 18 folder fit in one side, then a Packing Cube Backpack in the other side?
3. I have a 7 day trip to Mexico in early 2015. I am not bringing my laptop, just my iPad mini in my Co-Pilot. Do you think a week's worth of summer vacation clothes with a light jacket would fit in the Tri-Star plus toiletries?
I've seen a bunch of pics that show really thick Tri-Stars, I do not want a bulging bag if that makes sense. I wonder if those have been packed to the gills or moderately packed.
I wish I could afford both the Aeronaut and Tri-Star. I think the Tri-Star gives me more options for organization in general. Also more organized when in backpack mode compared to the Aeronaut where items would possibly gather at the bottom in backpack mode. Thanks for the help, as usual
FYI, my first Travel Tray (Iberian) and Large Nordic Shop Bag have been ordered, can't wait!
