    I know the temptation - probably the only reason I have not traded up is that I prefer the color of my Indigo Aeronaut to the current colors.

    Maverick,

    Thanks for the video. That is similar to how my llbean straps fold - I suspect the difference is that the covering flap on the Side Effect is larger (for the passport pocket).
