    Generally yes. The US has quite high cell rates and most US carriers charge a hefty premium for international plans.

    Stripe in Super Ego and the brain cell

    Probably a dumb question, but how do you change the stripe on the Ego/SuperEgo?

    From a security standpoint, a tag on a bag is immaterial. With the global economy, it is very unlikely that anyone would be singled out merely because of a tag on a bag.

    It depends on your packing style. I had a 45 and a TriStar (just a tad more volume than the 30). While I could obviously pack more in the 45, organization was more difficult and I ultimately sold it....

    Nicely keeping the excess straps in control

    How do you wrap up the excess straps when not in use? I almost never use the waist strap on my SuperEgo (but don't want to remove it) so there is quite a bit of strap hanging down.
