    Good point.

    I, occasionally, use that space to pack a light jacket. It's easy to get to if needed. Especially if it can pack flat.

    Should it start to rain, or it gets chilly, I can easily reach into the backpack strap compartment, pull out the jacket, and not have to deal with any of the other compartments.

    Ooh, good idea! I bet that would also work with the other bags that have stowable backpack straps (TriStar, Western Flyer)
    Collections:
    black/aubergine + wasabi (WF, SA + UMP, CP, TT, TSSs, SE, Swift, QK, YSSs & KTPs)
    forest/cork/linen + steel/olive (Imago, Pilot, SCB, COW, QK, OPs)
    olive/plum + steel/UV/wasabi (S19, SE, MCB, TSSs, SSBs, YSSs, LSS, 3DOCs, OPs)
    black/steel + iberian (DLBP, SE, SCB, FJN, TSSs, YSSs, 3DFOC)
    Hoping for: FJN for iPad Mini; more bags in Aubergine; the return of Portable Culture!

    It works with any bag that has stowable backpack straps as long as that compartment has a zipper. There are a couple of bags, non-TB, that stow their backpack straps in an open pouch. That's not good as the jacket could fall out.

    In bags like the Western Flyer or Tri-Star you can also use the front water bottle pocket for stowing a light jacket, and you don't have to worry about packing flat. Or I can even roll the windbreaker around an umbrella and keep both in the pocket (depends on the sizes of each whether you can do this, and I suspect my jacket is a lot smaller than Frank's). I tend to use the zippered pocket for the backpack straps to store an iPad in its cache in these bags (Western Flyer, Tri-Star, or Aeronaut)

    What a great idea for umbrella/jacket packing. I will try this out on my next trip!

    I use the backpack strap pocket all the time. I keep my absolute strap in there when not in use. I've used it for magazines, clothes and basically anything flat-ish in shape.
    List exceeds allowed characters. So I'll just say I'm plum and kiwi loving FOT!

    I can't believe this thread already has two pages of comments! I'm super eager to see what the little 'nauttie looks like and I can clearly see I'm not alone in this.

    Does it split in half to become two day backpacks?

    Or have packing cubes that may be attached to each other and become an overnight bag?

    I'm suddenly reminded of my Transformers toys back when I was a kid.
