    The snap end pockets WILL allow you to utilize ALL the Space in the end compartments.

    I prefer the zippers face down, personally. I spoke with another TB owner during a layover in Atlanta; she mentioned that the zipper becomes "stiffer" as wear and tear rubs on the exposed teeth of the zipper. She had a lovely indigo/steel pilot with the teeth up; I had my beloved black/Iberian Aeronaut 45 (soon going to a new home and a cardinal WF with zipper face down to replace). The Aeronaut zippers were definitely smoother to operate than the Pilot's. But YMMV!

    The stiff zippers do bother me. I read they'd get easier over time though.

    Buy the current Aeronaut 45 or wait for the new version?

    So right now, all the the Aeronaut 45 colors (except blk/steel and blk/wasabi) are on backorder. If we order now, do we get the new ones in October at the lower price or will you continue to make the old style for those that paid $250?

    If you order now, you'll get the old/current style. As soon as the new version is ready for pre-order, we'll update the Aeronaut page with new photos, an updated description, and the new price.
