    Dozens? Luckily I'm not on the road that much!:)

    My dad used to travel with a jar of baking soda for his heartburn. (He was too cheap to buy Tums, I think.) We used to warn him that one of...
  2. Two products to make travel washing easier

    Whenever I am on the road for more than a few days, I sink wash to help me travel light. For a long time, I used the little travel sized individual packets of Woolite for my sink washing, but those...

    Monkeylady, I have no idea whether Goop would be okay for suede or leather. I wonder if it would tend to strip natural oil out of the leather (though it doesn't seem to do that to the natural lanolin...

    If your spots on the Checkpoint Flyer are greasy marks, I recommend Goop. It's sold in drugstores, grocery stores, and in automotive supply places. It's really very gentle (I use it on silks!) and it...

    It's funny--I have spotted TB bags on several occasions. Once, a guy in line at the Home Depot asked me if I was toting a Small Café Bag (I was) and we chatted amiably about how terrific TB stuff is....

    I've only had a problem with the 3D cube in Brisbane airport--they first confiscated my dangerous tweezers and eyelash curler (!) and then hassled me about not having my liquids and gels in a plastic...

    Oh, I do hope that the Western Flyer is not doomed. I don't like the open plan of the Aeronaut myself as a backpack. I use my Aeronaut when I'm traveling by car, but when I am carrying my load on my...

    At the gate in Denver. Announcements made about the carry-on rules, but Group one has boarded without any bags being put into the sizers. My group is next...

    At my gate, the gate agent was having most people try their bags into the sizers, not just rollers. I had to put my obviously within-limits Western Flyer in the sizer, but she didn't make me put the...

    I used to live in New Orleans once, and still have a soft spot in my heart for the Big Easy. Here are a few ideas: take the St Charles Streetcar out to the Garden District to see the old mansions...

    Two kinds of people?

    I found myself wondering recently whether people divide into two camps--those that squeal with delight at the thought of anything purple and those that can't begin to imagine ever wanting anything in...

    Flew out of SeaTac yesterday. Bags being checked at my gate, but the next gate over, I didn't hear any announcements at all other than the usual "if you're in boarding group 4 or 5, you should...

    Moose, that was a good thread indeed, I'd forgotten about it. Your list is very close to mine--I add a couple of medical items when traveling (immodium, because who wants to be wandering the streets...

    My guess is that it will depend on exactly what is packed inside. Largish, hard stuff won't squish, obviously, but an overstuffed bag that is densely packed even with softer stuff could also be a...

    I've been using Café Bags (S, M and L) for years and had no problems with things falling out of them. The reason I like to use organizer pouches is for just that--organization. It's easier to find...

    Now that you mention it, I should have known. I lived in New Orleans for a while, and the official colors of Mardi Gras are purple, green, and gold. In fact, you know you're a real New Orleanian when...

    Actually, this is already a problem with inconsistent standards. For example, I often start my journey on a US carrier with lax carry-on rules, then connect to a European or Pacific carrier with much...

    Thanks everyone for such quick and explicit assistance! It sounds like there isn't a huge difference, but that the parapack might be a bit darker. So, parapack it is!

    Good points, all. I don't want to unnecessarily worry anyone. It's just that for the first time, there are personal item sizers at the United gates, not just main carry-on sizers, so it sounds like...

    A surprising color combo that works

    The olive parapack is truly lovely, with a slight sheen that brings out its richness. It's the color that Spanish olives will be in heaven. That said, I was really hoping for a lining in solar for...
  21. Which navy is darker? Navy parapack or navy ballistic?

    I just snagged a Western Flyer in Nordic/steel and now I have to have another Side Effect--even though I now have two others--one of the originals in black cordura and one in olive...
  22. United Airlines to begin strictly enforcing carry-on bag sizes

    Apparently as of March 1, United Airlines is planning to clamp down on oversized carry-on bags. There'll be sizers for carry-ons and for 'personal items' at every gate--you may have seen them over...

    Oh, I do so hope that there is a true horizontal messenger bag that fits the niche of the late, lamented Imago. I've got so many TB bags and pouches, but the one I love the most is my Imago. (Don't...

    For the website, more pictures of items so that we can get a sense of the colors. (I know, I know, monitors vary, but it's hard to guess whether navy is closer to royal blue or to midnight blue, or...
