    Aubergine Aeronaut 45 lining colors

    I think it's unlikely that they will be rolling out more than one colour of 200D? (But please God let me be wrong... Am eagerly awaiting a new colour to buy the SSK and another TT)

    Uh, what do you mean by the 'front pocket'? As in, there are many photos of the front of the DLBP, which will all feature the front pocket. Are you looking for a photo of the interior of the front...

    It'll fit. And no, I don't think you'll have issues especially if you have the latest version of the BB as parapack is very smooth. If you have a dyneema DLBC it will be even easier.

    Just some random musings on the CP-- if you use a small and thin cardigan, and don't need a thick file, the CP may work. Also, the dyneema version has quite a different look and feel. I have...

    I still wonder to this day if I should have gotten the Black/UV, and have to remind myself that I got Steel/UV because I wanted a funny-shaped bag like the PU in a non-black colour. You will love...

    For the side effect? Yeah, I looked into it... not my thing. The webbing is quite stiff and the snaphook is overwhelming (aesthetically) on such a small bag. I'm very happy with the simple strap...

    I took the measurements on the site and calculated the volume in cubic inches, then converted to liters: 13.25 x 12.5 x 7.25 x 0.0163871= 19.7l. This may be a bit smaller than its actual size,...

    DIY 1" SE strap

    If you don't like the strap that comes with the SE because it's too narrow, you can easily cut up a FJN strap (which is 1" wide) and sew on hardware like these snaphooks in place of the gatekeepers. ...

    Yeah, it's fine worn on one shoulder. The only issue I can think of is that it's not as secure as when it's worn cross-body, but that's about it. I'd recommend the Ultrasuede Wrap as it's more...

    I think the sagging bit is a by-product of the design, not so much an intended feature. The 'problem' with the way the bag is sewn is that the back half of the bag is one piece of fabric, which will...

    I used to put whiteboard markers in that pocket. Anything elongated and not too wide can go in there, especially if they are too wide for the pen pockets.

    Anyway, you'll figure out in good time...
