    @tpnl
    This is off topic, but I ordered the Pilot last year and its waiting at my parents' house for me to eventually return to the country and pick it up (along with an A45). But based on your...

    I think it will depend heavily on where you are. I live in Japan and use the SCB almost every weekend. There is no problem whatsoever with it looking feminine here and many people ,including the...

    I bought a Pilot to use as a work bag (formal setting, suits in the winter, and dress shirt and tie in the summer). I haven't gotten it yet (it's waiting for me at my parents house until I have a...

    As some of you have mentioned, maybe adding a removable foam handle of some kind would be good. Put it on when I intend to carry it, then take it off for packing....

    I like everything about this bag except the handles. I understand the desire for lightness, but even a minimal amount of padding of some kind would be very beneficial IMO. I can't imagine carrying...

    Thanks! I missed that part about the two tiny holes. I knew about the gaps for the water bottle pocket though :)

    Glad to hear they are intentional, though I would prefer not to have them :P

    I use these pens and highlighters at work (since I work in Japan). :)
    Many coworkers use these as well (the pens, not the highlighters for some reason). I find the red invaluable for making...

    Thanks Moose. I read through that one a while back. I think I'll revisit it. :)

    Thanks pokilani. Gotcha. Still, being able to expand like that seems very useful. I take it that the button snaps on the current model don't allow as much expansion, comparatively speaking.

    Thanks Darcy. Yea it helps. If I understand correctly the interior zippers replace the button snaps from before. And these zippers can be unzipped entirely, so that essentially you can make a one...

    Yea, you're probably right.... :( well, I suppose most of my travel does include a coworker, so maybe I'd be alright!

    Hi again,

    Well, I'm sure this info must have already been debated, but I couldn't find it in the forums. If someone can point me to the thread, it'd be much appreciated :)

    Keeping yourself clean while using the aeronaut

    I'm considering an aeronaut45 and I've never tried using soft luggage like this before. Assuming I get everything packed inside, I'm wondering how people keep it relatively clean.

    For example, I...

    - the lunchbox is about 18(length) x 8(height) x 9(width) cm.
    - I'd usual only carry at most up to one...

    Yarn stuff sacks vs Travel stuff sacks

    I was considering getting the large TSS in my next order, but I noticed that the largest Yarn stuff sack is:
    - bigger
    - has a clip for a strap
    - and is cheaper!

    I guess the thing the TSS has...
