    I just can't afford a collection at this point. I have a Tristar, a 3D clear organizer cube and a keystrap, which takes me to just over $300 at the prices I paid when I bought them. I would like to...

    I've flown Icelandair several times and have no complaints. They're a cheap and cheerful budget airline, and you do have to pay for food in economy class, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with...

    I usually get my Icebreaker stuff from Sierra Trading Post. Most of it seems to hover around 30% off but then if you sign up for their emails you get coupons that entitle you to an additional...

    I love Icebreaker and have a couple of the Tech-Ts and yes, they are definitely on the long side. I'm 5'8" and at full length they cover nearly half of my backside (not that I wear them like that,...

    I got the Tristar partly because the A45 was too long for my back - I'd assumed that the A30 would be shorter, but from the description it sounds like they designed it to fit the same. That might be...

    I don't quite get this:

    The A30 is over two inches shorter than the A45, so is it just that the difference in length comes from other parts of the bag? From the end pockets, maybe?

    I found the...

    A difficult but really admirable decision. Thank you for keeping us informed.

    One thing I noticed: the Western Flyer is one of the bags that won't be going on backorder, even though both Aeronauts...

    I meant more that it wouldn't work for the colour schemes in some people's Tom Bihn collections.

    But thinking about it, I doubt it would be particularly nice with Burnt Orange as an exterior...

    Well, I have an aubergine/wasabi Tristar so from my point of view it seems nicely symmetrical to have a plum/wasabi clear cube. But I can see that for some colour schemes it wouldn't work at all.

    I just got a 3D clear cube in plum cordura (love it!) and it has wasabi cordura inside. I'll be interested to hear whether yours has the same colour scheme.

    Those pill fobs are super cool - I've never seen them before. Do you happen to know what brand you have?

    I'd actually thought of decanting some pills into a mini Altoids tin but these seems even...

    Whee, my order just shipped! I'm a bit surprised because I ordered a couple of stuff sacks, and the page still says they're backordered till late May, but I'm not complaining. :)

    Thought I'd bump this up since I've had some recent experience. I just went from Boston to New York by Greyhound and my Tristar, packed for a four-night trip, fit beautifully in the overhead. If it...

    I found the process amazingly simple when I returned my Aeronaut in favor of a Tristar. I didn't know that it was new, since this was my first order - but kudos for introducing it, it made things...

    Buses are a tough one, I agree. I'm actually going to New York City by Greyhound later this month, so that will be the inaugural trip for the new Tristar.
