Southwest Road Trip with the Aeronaut 30

Jillian—photographer, metalsmith, and author of the Noisy Plume—took her Aeronaut 30 on a road trip to the Southwest this past summer. Below is her packing list and review. And for more about her trip, visit the Noisy Plume.

Let me say that I have never packed this little EVER!

I am guilty of being horrendously overpacked on almost every trip I ever take. I find it really hard to decide what should come with me when I travel, especially when it comes to clothing. Incredibly, everything fit into this little bag BEAUTIFULLY, I used/wore everything I took with me, and I even had some leftover space to put a few things I bought on my trip to New Mexico. Furthermore, I didn't feel like I sacrificed my style on this trip, ever. I had compliments everywhere I went on my jewelry and outfit choices throughout the day, on a daily basis! Brilliant! I hate to look like a bedraggled traveler while traveling.

I thought this bag would be more of a weekend trip bag but it worked great for a full week in the Southwest. I wouldn't hesitate to travel with it again, for the same amount of time, in the summer months.
