    Introducing Verde 1050d ballistic nylon + the updated Aeronaut 45

    We've been waiting rather impatiently to share this news with you guys: the updated Aeronaut 45 -- featuring the same design updates that debuted in the Aeronaut 30 -- is now available for pre-order. Impatiently because, well, we think the design updates (detailed below) make what was already the perfect carry-on bag even more so, and also because we planned for the Aeronaut 45 to be the first bag made available for pre-order in our latest 1050d ballistic nylon color:
    Verde

    The updated Aeronaut 45 in Verde.

    Verde is a rich, vibrant green. It's similar to the Olive 1000d Cordura we all know, but brighter and greener enough to call out for its own name. And, yes: it's what is replacing Forest. In addition to the Aeronaut 45, the Aeronaut 30 is available for pre-order in Verde/Steel. Stay tuned, as we expect to make more bags available in Verde in the coming months.

    Here's a recap of the design updates in the new Aeronaut 45:

    Two End Zippered Pockets
    Both end pockets will now be zippered. (On the original Aeronaut 45, one end pocket was zippered, and one was open-top.)

    One, Two, or Three Compartments: You Choose
    The snaps in the main compartment have been replaced with zippered dividers, allowing you to transform the Aeronaut 45 into a one, two, or three compartment bag based on your needs/what you need to pack.

    Right Side Up Waterproof Zippers
    The Aeronaut 45 still has the much-loved YKK AquaguardŽ waterproof coil zippers, but we're now sewing them "right side up", which basically means they're easier to operate, they'll weigh a little bit less, and they'll last even longer.

    Note that these design updates already exist/are in effect in the Aeronaut 30.

    Aeronaut 45s that are available for order at $250 are the previous version, which means they don't include these design updates.

    Aeronaut 45s that are available for order at $280 are the new version, which means they do include these design updates.

    If you're a fan of the original Aeronaut 45, now would be the time to order any colors still available at the $250 price, as we won't be making another batch of the original.

    Me likey! I already have both an A45 and A30, so looking forward to seeing what other bags this colour will be made into. I suppose anything already made of 1050d would be a safe bet...

    @Darcy, can you post some photos (or even better, a short video) of the 3 to 1 compartment style in the new A45?

    Love that new A30 vs 45 video, especially the baby that makes an appearance.

    Love the cameos AKA videobombing in this clip ;-) And finally, easy visuals for all the height-related carry questions!

    I had seen @itsablur's video re: A30, but somehow my mind jumped to you can completely unzip the pockets and make one big bag in the new A45. I think it's from all this talk of Nightflight 2.0 and how to fit certain longer items (i.e., shoes, iPad). Having the A45 1.0, I can see the appeal of zippers over snaps on pushing out the main compartment. Thanks @Darcy!

    Beautiful!

    If I hadn't just placed my order for an A30 in Steel, I would probably be feeling a little torn right about now...

    Is the Aeronaut 30 vs 45 video new? I love it - it's perfect for comparing the two!

    The new color's not my cup of tea (I'm still hoping for a sky blue ballistic (or dyneema!)), but I'm glad others are excited, and one fewer temptation for me is probably for the best...

    I will! He's working late sewing a new prototype that we hope we can tell you about by early next year.... (no more hints than that and I don't think anyone would correctly guess what it is!)

    Good questions! No firm dates right now, but I'd say late October for the Black/Steel A45 and maybe late November for the updated S25.
