Bag arrived today. Very nice. Extremely high quality manufacturing and materials - really top notch. At first I thought it seemed rather small in comparison to a Red Oxx Box Car (which is about the same capacity) but once I test packed it I was very surprised how much just disappears into the Aeronaut in a TARDIS like way. I especially like having pockets that actually fit shoes which I usually find to be an annoying item to stow. A pair of size 10 Tevas fits neatly in 50% of one of the end pockets.

 

I'm determined to take this as my only bag (well, clothing bag) on my upcoming SE Asia trip so that I have just that (checked) and my cameras (hand luggage). Also determined to keep the weight to 15kg rather than the 20-22 that I usually seem to end up with (although SWMBO is not coming so that might help there...!).

 

On the issue of quality I can fully recommend this bag. I will report back as to the issue of the practicality of travelling with it.

My Aeronaut 45 has been my only bag (and carried on only) on my 2 northern hemisphere trips a year, each year, for the last 3. It's bloody brilliant.

How do you stay under the 7kg limit?

 

I usually can't do carry on only as I am usually flying with my cameras and they have to be my carry on. Clothes will survive the baggage handlers!

I travel pretty light - half a dozen T-shirts, socks, boxers, rain jacket, shoes, jeans and usually leave NZ around 8kg. Most airlines allow 10kg or have no limit at all. Air NZ although 7kg limit have never weighed it. Carry it confidently and they don't suspect a thing :-) It came back from the USA weighing 14kg last year, no questions asked!

In all my travels Jetstar Australia weighed it once and this trip Emirates did out of Dubai. Neither had issue with it being a kg or 3 over. I've often got an unused checked baggage allowance so if anyone takes issue I'll just check it in. One day I'll cop a gate fine but for all the convenience over the years I'll happily pay it. Then consider changing my ways. Every trip I take less stuff, even travelling light I still take stuff I don't use.

I don't think he works. He's a secret Lotto millionaire and just travels. No one gets that much leave...!! tongue-out

Ah. Sadly I can't really do without the laptop.
