Seems they made the front compartment pretty thin to give more space to the central cavity. The Outbreaker is another option, but seems even more squared off and rollerbag on your back looking. * Aer Travel Pack 2 33L - Tied Second choice, seems to suffer from the same problem as the Tortuga Setout in terms of putting all the capacity into the center instead of the "EDC" compartments.
\- The accessory straps were a hassle to take off the bag, especially the lower one on where it attaches to the back of the bag by the hip belt. Took me a solid 8 minutes just to unhook this thing, because the attachment point on the back of the bag is much tighter than the one on the front. \- Speaking of the hip belt, I don't really see it as being very usable for distributing weight.
Hey all,. After searching high and low for my first travel backpack, pining for and eventually getting the vaunted Aer Travel Pack 2, it has *mostly* lived up to the hype. The way it's compartmentalized is super functional, aesthetically it's sleek as, and it's built for when shit hits the fan.
Looking for bag combo recommendations
I like lighter and more quick access bags for out on the go. The Aer Day Pack 2 backpack I have seems a touch bulky and stiff as well but maybe that’s just because I haven’t worn it in. As far as day trips go, I’d like to carry with me my phone, wallet, sunglasses, room key of sorts, hand sanitizer, mask, chapstick, smaller water bottle (open to recommendations), small battery pack, and potentially a packable tote bag or maybe clip it on to the outside.
The shoe compartment is silly and creates an annoyance as it constantly has to be tucked away (I use packing cubes to maximize space). The Aer Travel Pack 2 seems comfortable but not quite as comfortable as the Synik 30 with the edgeless shoulder straps.
