Aer Travel Pack 2 Small Review - GREAT Stylish 28L Travel Pack
Both all that being said, the smaller version of the travel pack 2 really lives up to the expectations I had for it after using the larger version for so long and if you're looking for something that's gon na be really durable, versatile have a great look and Work well for shorter trips or a day to day carry. I definitely recommend you check this one out and so I'm very curious to hear what you guys think of the smaller version of the travel pack too, and whether you like this trend of smaller and minimal travel bags that have been coming out, that work well for Shorter trips or for day to day use if there are any other options in the size range that you think would be good for me to check out. Please let me know in the comments - and I want to thank the company again for sending the bag

Purchased s/m size, I'm 5'8" tall. Great bag. I commute several times a week to a casual/dress casual office string. The bag holds a complete outfit (including shoes) and a lunch. Used the rain fly twice now, and it has kept everything totally dry. To address some other review comments, yes, this is...

Osprey METRON Review | Pack Hacker
Carrying gear while riding a bike can be a tricky activity. You have to consider the weight of every piece of gear and understand how it will impact your balance. In some cases, it even takes away any fun you’d been looking forward to on a bike ride—it becomes less of a joyride and more of a tight-r...

Strap

Aer Travel Pack 2
User Reviews: Aer x Ministry of Supply Lunar Pack vs. Black Ember Shadow 26L
Regarding a tech pouch: I definitely miss having an admin panel for this bag like in other Aer bags (that’s probably my #1 con), but I find that between the quick access pocket, the two pockets in the main compartment, and the front pocket, there is definitely enough space to store your tech — it just won’t be all in one place, which may be cumbersome for some but isn’t a dealbreaker for me. I happen to own the Aer Slim Pouch which I bought to use with my Aer Travel Pack 2 (can you tell I like this brand?

Osprey METRON Review (2 Weeks of Use)
So the target is big enough, so you can kind of fat finger, it closed at an angle and it will still completely block. This also adds a little bit of visibility. The osprey logo there, which is nice, not only had some branding for them, but a little bit of visibility as well, and then yeah

Zipper

Aer Travel Pack 2
What are the downsides of the Aer Travel Pack 2?
I did end up buying another backpack (Mission Workshop Fitzroy) to try to mitigate having zippers be a possible point of failure, but as the Aer Travel Pack 2 is, I really appreciate that it has 4 compression buckles to take some of the strain away that a packed bag can put on the main zipper...

Aer tp2 X-pac vs Goruck gr2
I’ve been through an astonishing amount of review and it is now a fight between the Aer travel pack 2 X-Pac and the Goruck gr2. Well not really … being in Europe, the price of the goruck is just insane (with the taxes and shipment something along 500$ without hip belt, strap or kydex frame sheet replacement). Obviously and reasonably the Aer is the best option.

Commute

Aer Travel Pack 2
I am a huge sucker for organizing and small, cool (sometimes unnecessary) features. I've looked at a ton of bags, and narrowed it down to two bags. The Aer Travel Pack 2.
