    hi flitcraft,

    that's easy - just don't transit through doha!

    no, if you have to fly into doha, that's another matter. but you'll have to find someone else to film that one.

    Very nice, thanks for posting. That was a great way to get a sense of what the Aeronaut can do in practical terms. I have to say, that Eaglecreek bag is nice, which makes me wonder what Tom will be doing for 2010. I imagine the TB Garment Bag will be in Dyneema. It's going to be a neat item to see what Tom has in store for the garment bag trade. I'm looking forward to it.
    Bags: Super Ego (Black/indigo w/cork seatbelt); Aeronaut (Crimson/Steel); 2 Medium Cafe Bags (Navy/Cayenne, Linen/Olive), w/an Ultrasuede Shoulder Strap Wrap; Large Cafe Bag (Cocoa/Wasabi) w/Absolute Strap; Imago (sadly lost to hazmat); a Brain Cell w/ another Strap Wrap; and a Shop Bag (Steel). Accessories: Bunches and bunches.
    Wanted: Zephyr or Empire Builder.

    hi ex,

    dyneema would be a great fabric for a garment sleeve! i'd love to see something that can accommodate longer jackets.

    i am sure tom will wow us with his design for a garment sleeve!

    Wow! Impressive video.

    A few questions about it:

    1: Were you using the Eagle Creek Pack-It Garment Sleeve (Item EC-40462)?

    2: How easy is it to unpack/get the wrinkles out of the suit once you get to the hotel?

    3: What kind of wooden shoe trees were you using in that video?

    4: Do you think you still had room for items in the Aeronaut's zip-flap over the main compartment? Could you have put your 3-1-1 Clear Organizer Cube in there?

    I could not resist asking. Thanks for the informative video.
