    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....

    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

    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...

    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 :)

  18. 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.

    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

    I guess the thing the TSS has...
