The Gadgeteer

Overall I think Tom Bihn hit a home run with this product. I have recommended it to people in my office when we talk about our travel and the gear we use. I highly recommend this bag and strongly encourage you to look into their accessories to help organize your packing.

It is a solid travel backpack, perfect for urban travelers. The standout feature is the backpack’s organization, although it would be nice to see a laptop-specific compartment.

Her Packing List

It’s just right most of the time. As I mentioned, for a short trip, my husband and I will pack both our things in one Aeronaut, so depending on your needs it could be too large. My husband has considered also buying an Aeronaut 30 for that reason. I have jammed my bag pretty full for some trips but I still wouldn’t consider it too small.

Her Packing List

If you’re not looking for a hiking backpack, if you enjoy packing light, and if you are willing to spend quite a lot of money. Love that bag and can’t wait to take it on our next adventure!

I would recommend this bag to anyone who wants a chic carry-on backpack with lots of space that will last forever. It’s hand-down the best purchase I’ve made for my life of travel.
