    I actually like the Rick Steves large toiletry bag design quite a lot. I can put it on a counter and it stands up on its own, but I can also hang it to get access. The side pockets are nice for when...

    I too was excited to receive the mini-organizer pouch in the mail. However, I can't quite figure out what to do with it. My current purse already has a small zippered pocket where I put my...

    Comfort is a very personal thing. All I can say is that I've carried around a lot of stuff a long way in the Smart Alec and have not had any problems. Your mileage may vary. Originally, I had bought...

    Have you checked out the Smart Alec?

    I've always had problems with backpacks (especially computer backpacks) being a bit too long on me. The Smart Alec actually fits me really well. A key feature is that it actually rides fairly high on...

    Feature!

    I've fit the Smart Alec under the seat a couple of times. It sticks out a bit, but if you put the lid side toward you, it makes a nifty footrest. The only place I've had trouble fitting the Smart...

    I actually like the location of the pockets on the lid of the Smart Alec. They're very easy to access and I've never had a problem with stuff falling out or stuff bending when the bag is really full....

    The workmanship for both is very good. I dragged my Spire bag literally around the world and it still looks great. I changed to the Smart Alec largely because the Volt XL was much too long on my...

    The Smart Alec is definitely able to stand upright on its own most of the time. Sometimes when I pack heavy stuff in the front it will fall over, but it is much more stable than my Spire Volt XL.

    These are really nice keyboards. I don't own one, but I know someone who owns 2(!). The MacNTouch was actually discontinued before the company went out of business because they couldn't be installed...

    Even in the continental US, I have to gate check my larger carry-on bag when I fly on smaller planes (regional jets, turboprops, etc.), so I think a tough bag is essential for travel.

    Although...

    Tessa,

    I can't answer your ID question, but I do have some insight into the backpack issue.

    I had the same problems with backpacks, especially laptop backpacks, which all seem to be made for 6'...

    Smart Alec

    I was looking for a new bag earlier this month and ended up with a Kiwi/Black Smart Alec. I took a look at the Transcontinental at a store near me that sells Trager bags as well as checking out the...

    Front Compartment on ID

    I am, to put it mildly, a klutz. The ID looks cool, but I'm worried that I'm going to accidentally dump the contents of the front compartment on the floor on a fairly regular basis. Any comments from...

    I think this is more than distributing weight better for the female body as some bags are physically too big for smaller people to carry. A maximally sized carry-on (22" by 14" by 9") is going to be...
