    The other nice thing about the SA for a train ride is that, with only two external pockets whose zippers face toward your body, it is not a terribly easy bag to pickpocket.

    Hmm. Would a kindle fit in one of the pockets? Much as I love my Smart Alec, sometimes the airlines put those %^($ video systems under the seat, which takes up half the space and means that no...

    You never know, though - maybe for them Disney is just a stop on a much longer trip. (Though admittedly, not for all of them!) On my next trip, I will take one very large checked suitcase, one...

    I'd be careful what I packed, though - avoid sharp implements. I have a bunch of Knitting Stuff Sacks in the lightweight Dyneema, and smaller knitting needles often poke through the weave of the bag....

    I feel I must mention that if you go to the xkcd store, they have a tie with xkcd characters!!! (I don't wear them but may need to buy my husband one.)

    I feel somehow perversely vindicated by your packing lists and travel choices. I feel like there's so much *pressure* from one-bag packers, and yet I note that very few of those people seem to be...

    In 2009 I went to buy Blundstones in Tasmania, where they're from, and no one wanted to sell them to me. Reason: they transferred their manufacturing and Blunnies are now made in Korea. Instead, they...

    I need dividers because I sometimes carry the wallet alone, with a wrist strap, and don't like having my money showing!

    Pretty color. I just wish they'd make one with a light-colored interior! (Wasabi would be ideal, but UV and Iberian and still much lighter than Steel.)

    Depends how much you put in it - 500 ml water bottle from the store or standard size bike bottle, no problem. If you put in, say, a bike bottle plus compact umbrella you'd need to leave it open.

    I really think that the SA is generally an underrated bag. My favorite thing about it is that, because of the way the top opens, it's perfectly positioned to make it easy to get things out during a...

    Intermediate followup: I have the Aeronaut mostly packed and it's still got a fair bit of room - the main compartment is only packed halfway deep (with the backpack packing cube, not overfilled)....

    If I'm not mistaken, those are the bags they sell all over airports. I've never considered using one to carry a laptop! If I see one at either airport I'll check to see if it fits my computer.
