The Truth about the Aeronaut
Colors: someday we may do it in a blue, but having dye lots of ballistic nylon made (in this country, no less!), is a huge investment, so we try to minimize the number of colors we offer in ballistic. The Kiwi color is someone else's dye lot from which we have been invited to nibble :)
Straps inside: I've been using various prototypes of this bag for almost a year now, and I've found the "bookends" effect of the end pockets to really help keep folded clothing in place and have had no problems that inside straps would solve, IMHO. I will get right on those packing cubes though!
Regards carrying the Aeronaut AND another bag: I've carried the Aeronaut both as a backpack and at other times by a shoulder strap concurrently with my Imago ( a sort of smaller ID bag or larger Cafe bag, which is being sampled in the factory as I write this!) and while less than ideal for much distance, it worked OK. When I had to walk across the city of Oakland one day last summer (I exaggerate only a little), I simply squooze everything into the Aeronaut and happily carried it as a backpack.
Replacing a roll-aboard with an Aeronaut? Like we say in the FAQ, if you are physically fit and know how to travel light, the Aeronaut could be the answer.
More pictures? I agree - Darcy and I will work on that as soon as we have a final product from the factory (the crimson one pictured has the inside mesh pocket mentioned in the description, but I redesigned it just before it went into production).
