I am gradually becoming a minimized traveler. I have recently purchased the Aeronaut and some packing cubes, and I used them on a 2 night trip last weekend. There was plenty of room in it. I wasn't flying so I wasn't concerned about liquids - I packed two bottles of wine along with all of my belongings.
I see that people are using the Aeronaut for week long trips, and I'm wondering if I could go smaller. What do most people use for 2 night trips if they are flying?
I have my clothing (lightweight travel fabric), pashmina (I'm always cold), toiletries (liquid and non), 10" netbook and charger, kindle, phone charger, small power strip (love this), ipod, and the tricky part - my running clothes. The clothes aren't the problem, at least in warm weather, it's the shoes. I wear a 10.5 woman's running shoe. They fit perfectly in an end compartment of the aeronaut, but how about the tri-star? I wouldn't be packing any other shoes, with my new "packing light" philosophy.
Would I need tri-star specific packing cubes as well, or can I use my aeronaut packing cubes? It's a big investment, but I'm up for the challenge of traveling smaller and lighter.
So what do you think? Is a Tri-Star in my future? Or something else?
