    I hear you CodeHead, I have a Steel 1050 denier Tri-Star and I've taken 3 international trips with it. I go to Thailand so most of the stuff I pack is for hot weather, definitely helps with light...

    Yikes, 30 pounds, I don't think I would make it 10 feet with that load. You must be really strong. Have you looked into the TB 1" Waist Strap: 1" Waist Strap - Waist Strap for TOM BIHN bags - TOM BIHN

    Hey Wendy, I think my Tristar weighed about the same during my last trip, quite brutal on my back and neck. I can save almost 2 pounds by wearing my jeans on the plane rather than packing them.

    Really? I prefer the backpack straps, especially for large international airport terminals. I guess everyone is different in terms of preferences. Appreciate the response.

    Yes, I definitely agree with you. I like to walk around during layovers also and having a heavy Tristar makes it a lot tougher to do so.

    Thanks itsablur, I appreciate your response. I guess I'm on the right track. I'm struggling to cut the weight on my bag. Thanks!
  8. How much does your fully packed TB bag weigh?

    I've seen a lot of TB bag videos and I know you can pack a ton of stuff into them. Just curious, how heavy is too heavy? I think I read somewhere that a backpack shouldn't be more than 10% of your...

    I definitely look to save weight whenever I take a trip but cutting off the backpack straps sounds a little extreme. Tom Bihn bags are very well made and pretty expensive, any weight savings would...

    Good idea, I love the Absolute Strap but it weighs a lot and I found that I kept putting it on and taking it off of my Tri-star several tines during my walks through airport terminals. Better to pack...

    Thanks jmoz, I appreciate it. Yeah, it's pretty hot in Thailand in December so most of my clothing will be shorts and t-shirt (synthetic fibers) which helps a lot with weight. I 100% agree with you,...

    You're definitely right about packing as flat as possible, I really hate bulge, especially in a TS. I also don't think you're being silly about the pens, every ounce counts. Thanks!!

    Thanks for the quick reply!!

    1. That's not a bad idea, save some weight w/o the other packing cube. I could probably fit all of my clothing into one PCBP but I would be concerned...

    Hey Badger,

    I think you're right about that, the Dyneema TS is very durable but hefty plus I have the small, medium, large packing cube, the packing cube back pack. medium stuff sack, travel tray...

    Hi al85,

    I have the same issue, I don't travel as much as I would like to either, I'm still learning how to only pack what I need. I think I really need to get aggressive in terms of what I...

    Hey AvService,

    I appreciate the advice, not a bad combo. I'll have to think about either the Synapse or CP. I have the packing cube too but I use it in the TS, maybe I'll use it for over-flow.

    Hey Moose,

    Thank you for your post as well. In hindsight I might have even been able to do a S25 and a Pilot or Co-pilot, weight is a big concern for me. Like I said I'm in good shape but 15...

    Hey Tizi, I was debating on either the Co-Pilot or the Pilot. The price difference is so small, I don't want to end up getting the wrong one. I already know that the Co-Pilot fits under a plane...
