Speaking as an owner of one of Everlane's Modern Snap backpacks, I can say that it definitely never feels like it's ever too bulky, and though I may not be 5 feet tall, I don't think that would be an issue regardless. On the contrary, it's one of the least bulky and most stylish backpacks I've ever dealt with.

If you ever have an issue with your backpack, Everlane is quick to take care of it. I know this might not exactly convince you about the bifl quality of the backpack, but when I first got my backpack, there was a flaw in the stitching that caused one of the snaps to partially come off. However, emailed Everlane and they promptly gave me a label to send the backpack back and sent me a new one. They definitely stand behind their product. I can't quite put my finger on it, but just by feeling and looking at it, the backpack just seems to be undoubtedly high-quality.

A friend of mine, who was the one that referred me to the backpack, has owned his (the original snap backpack) for I believe like three years and it has nothing wrong with it whatsoever save for the faded colors which are inevitable when you've abused it every day like he has.

So I would definitely recommend this backpack and can see myself using it for years. And if you're still hesitant about the size, they also have a Mini Modern Zip Backpack which claims to be able to fit a 13" Macbook. I don't have experience with that however, and like I said, the Modern Snap has never felt bulky, but exactly the opposite. Hope I've helped! Feel free to use this referral link if you'd like! :)

Edit: Also, I've heard the Fjallraven Kanken recommended a lot. I've seen somebody with it and it looks fairly small but I can't tell you how it would hold up. Like the look of the Modern Snap better personally too.

Have you been on /r/onebag? Handy sub for this stuff. You can travel with far less than you think you need to. Long but hopefully helpful post ahead!

I did a week in Canada (in the cold so with thicker clothes) with a 30 litre backpack. I'm also fat, so my clothes are bigger than realistically they should be too! I got this list of stuff into this Osprey Momentum. The only thing that didn't go in was obvious stuff like jeans as I only took 1 pair, shoes as I only had 1 pair, a hoodie as I only took the one, my belt then the few toiletries we bought when we got there. The rest went into that bag - it was snug but keep in mind my clothes took up more room than they should've done so if you're a wee rake you'll be fine.

I'd take half the stuff and wash it half way through unless you can get 10 days of clothes in your bag rolled up (see below - there's another bit about packing clothes). If you can't be bothered/don't have time to find a laundrette, boxers and trainer socks can be done in the sink/bath in 10 minutes with travel detergent (you can buy it in travel sized containers so you can take it hand luggage - Dr. Bronners is apparently very good and it's all super eco-vegan-peace-fairtrade rated if that's your thing) and with it being warm they'll dry in a few hours if you hang them on the balcony if you've got one. Get it really soapy, scrub them against each other then put them on a laid out towel and roll it tightly to wring out any excess water then hang them over something.

Another tip for packing your clothes - do not fold them! They take up far too much room like that - what you need to do is "Skivvy Roll" your clothes instead. You end up with a burrito of clothes that is easy to grab and you know there's a t-shirt/underwear/socks in one little package. It does mean you need to spend a bit of extra time learning how to do it and it can be a bit fiddly if you haven't done it before, but it saves loads of room and definitely saves you time when you're getting ready. It's a technique used by armed forces and they've got a premium on space as well, so it's about as small a space you'll take up with your clothes. I've got a disability that affects my fine motor control and I can manage it though, so it's not particularly hard it's just learning how to do it. I've converted a few people with it and they're amazed how small stuff packs with it. Packing cubes are also a lifesaver as well as you can split everything up into categories - clothes, gadgets, toiletries and so on. No rummaging around in your bag for stuff - pull out a packing cube and bang, there's your stuff.

Buy your toiletries when you get there - Boots will mug you something rotten and they're only going to be the little travel ones. If you get them when you land then they'll be proper sized, probably half the price and even if you don't use it all then it's not a huge tragedy to bin what's left at the end of the trip. Also means less weight to lug around as well. I tend to use whatever's left during my last shower of the trip though, so I might spend half an hour in the shower just soaping up with huge amounts of everything if I've got loads left but that's just because I'm a bit odd. :|

Try to take some re-hydration tablets though, it's dead easy to not drink enough and end up quite unwell if you're not careful. Heatstroke and sunstroke shouldn't be arsed around with, it's a lot more serious than people think. Also... IMODIUM. You will need them at some point.

Final point (although again, this is because I travel with medication a lot and I have to be on the ball with it if I don't want to be arrested!) - make sure you've got proof from your doctor if you've got any prescribed medication, and only take as much as you need in the proper box/bottle with your name on it. Any prescription drugs (or at least controlled substances) need to be declared at customs once you pass through immigration - but check if what you're prescribed is legal where you're going. Having a UK script for drugs that are illegal in another country doesn't get you a free pass, they'll nick you for drug trafficking and stick a torch up your arse for good measure.

Backpack/Bag advice? (mainly travel [airbnbs, hostels, couch surfing etc...], but knowing me I might end up in some "wilderness" moments at times such as long hikes and adventures.


So I have ordered this backpack and plan on using it for all my gear (cameras/lenses/laptop/gopros/batteries/etc...) and am currently looking for a 2nd bag that will house all my clothes/toiletries/etc... The biggest goal I want to accomplish with this bag is that i never want to have to check a bag. I currently have a small roller bag that is 20in x 13in x 7in similar to this but I'm not a fan of it. Ive been looking into this one as I feel packing it would be the easiest for most efficient packing but not 100% that it will be okay on all flights as a carry on along with my backpack being the personal item. One thing also to keep in mind with my 2nd bag is to fit my tripod as it wont fit into my backpack.


When it comes to packing: Ive read into several different styles from Rolling clothes, Vacuum Bags, to packing cubes. Ive seen pros and cons to all of them. Ive heard from long term travel to not use cubes because they take up space that can always be used for something else. The downfall to vacuum bags is that people say the lose air, also how to remove the air the best. I have looked at ones with pumps that plug into USB ports for power and ones with the hand pumps to remove air.


PS. Ive see some checklists of things to pack X amount of shirts/ pants/ shorts/etc... and was wondering if anyone has some lists as well i can look at to compare them all and figure out what would be best for me and give me a rough idea of what i can and cant bring.


I'm sure ill have more and more questions as time goes on while I get ready and prepare for my trip around the world in a few months (if everything goes as planned).

    1. Leather! Like a few others have said, leather feels more mature. While I'm a student right now, hopefully this bag lasts me awhile and I can use it once I become a professional.
    1. It was a gift, but at the time it was about $200-$220.
    1. They sell it a The Bay (Canada), Kenneth Cole, or online.
    1. It's approaching a year and still going strong! It doesn't have any weak points, but the back isn't as firm as it used to be. BUT I previously had a canvas bag. I wore it really tight to my hip, so over the 2.5 years I had it, the bottom and side that rubbed against my leg eventually wore out and completely came apart.
    1. Awesome. It's retained the colour and quality of the original leather. I need to clean it/reseal it, but otherwise it's looking good!
    1. It has strong magnetic snap buttons. A lot of them either have straps, buttons, or a weird combination. They make it super convenient for throwing the top back on quickly without having to align any parts or worry about contents flying out.
    1. There could be more specific, compartmented storage I suppose. Johnston & Murphy sells some nice briefcase organizers that can help with that - they're just overpriced for the quality I'm looking at.

Okaaay, something impressive. Wow, this is hard. How about some cool websites?

  • My favourite: Weavesilk lets you make music with shapes!

  • Kind of self explanitory: The Fucking Weather

  • Awesome stuff that you'll want to buy (most is available on Amazon): This is Why I'm Broke

  • A really cool idea for a site, you answer multiple choice questions, every right answer donates rice to people who need it! Free rice

  • Some mentally stimulating and fun stuff: Sporcle

    This is what I would like to ask for! Why would it make my day you ask?

    A) I really need a new brolly (umbrella for y'all Americans).

    B) IT'S LIKE A SWORD, HOW FREAKING COOL IS THAT? I can also use it to poke the pigeons off of my windowsill.

    Great idea for a contest!

u/zulacar · 12 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

essential for travel:

  • generic-looking ultralight black rolling carryon bag (I have this one, which only weighs 5lbs empty
  • packable suitcase, so I can check my rolling carryon on the way back - mine is a collapsible longchamp which folds out to a full-size carryon
  • merino tee - I particularly love this one from Outdoor Voices, in black, and wear it on the plane, and if I get cold wherever I land regardless if somewhere cold or hot and humid — merino releases wrinkles and doesnt smell, and dries fairly quickly
  • slim fit black or navy nylon pants because they dont wrinkle (I like Prada, or Theory navalane becker pants)
  • I wear nice black loafers on the plane; mine are either the classic Gucci Jordaan loafer, or the Frye Erica tasseled loafer
  • barefoot sneakers (I love these in black because theyre comfortable and pack down totally flat, while also being water-friendly, quick-drying, and lightweight)
  • quick dry shorts (I love the Patagonia barely baggies in black)
  • I also pack all my stuff in packing cubes; I like these by Eagle Creek

    I don’t use a travel-specific handbag, but rather whichever crossbody bag I’m favoring at that time. The only “travel handbag” I own is this fun little Paravel one, which reminds me a lot of Hermes toile, but much easier to not stain or destroy because its waterproof.

    also essential:

  • kindle
  • travel battery to charge my phone (mine are mophie or anker)
  • in-ear headphones (mine are the etymotic etykids ones w the mic)
  • earplugs
  • sheet masks
  • advil
  • sachets of my favorite teas
  • silk sleep mask (mine is like $5 or $6 from Amazon; this one)
  • large, thick wool or cashmere shawl
  • nail file
  • small bobbin (spool) of thread, so I can touch up my eyebrows if needed (tweezers not allowed on planes, sadly)

    Edited to add:

  • Patagonia packable micro puff hooded jacket because I am perpetually cold
  • Patagonia packable Torrentshell rain jacket which I use on pretty much every trip. Whether coupled with the packable puffer (and shawl or merino tee), or worn alone, I’m prepared for nearly any weather situation.
u/MichaelWithAOnTheEnd · 3 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I want to replace my colorful High Sierra backpack with something slightly more "adult."

I am considering a plain black JanSport like this that I would customize by adding a bow and monogram, kind of like this.

The look I am going for is casual (hence the backpack), classic (hence the classic Jansport silhouette), and girly (details like bow and monogram) without compromising functionality.

What do you think, people of FFA? I would love some ideas on where to get it monogrammed, where to find the right kind of bow/how to attach, and whether black is an appropriate choice or if I should go with a "neutral" print like polka dots or something. Thank you in advance!

Edit: another idea is this which may be a better choice for being "adult" because it's canvas.

Another edit: here is what I mean by a "neutral" print

Last (?) edit: I'm not sure I know what I want with this whole backpack thing after all. I love the ease and practicality of having a backpack rather than another type of bag, and since I am in academia, I can totally get away with backpack use, possibly forever. But I just haven't thought much about personal style since like, high school/college, and am kind of unclear on what sort of image I want to project. I guess I just gravitate toward practical things but also want them to be attractive in some way, and don't want to just randomly accumulate possessions based on convenience anymore- I would like to be more mindful about purchasing items in the future that contribute toward some type of cohesive image. Help is very, very welcome from literally any one of you who wants to assist me with getting a handle on the basics. I have already read almost all of the sidebar resources and absorbed lots of new info that way, but I think I might need more help than I can get from reading stuff.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

SO. MANY. THINGS, haha. Half my wishlist is things for my house.

I'm just going to link a bunch of cool things real quick, just to give you an idea of whats out there and what you can get. And since you mentioned plungers...this ones first

Pirate skull plunger! It goes back and forth between being unavailable to available but it's a pretty nifty way to deck out an otherwise boring house item!

Melting Clock Is a hella sweet, very Alice in Wonderland-y!

An umbrella because everyone needs one of those, and this one just happens to have the bonus of looking like a samurai sword.

A scooby doo mystery machine salt and pepper shaker I actually own this one, it is so cool. Magnets connect the two parts together! (they actually have a bunch of different ones as well, not just scooby doo but Looney tunes, etc.)

Annnd speaking of loony tunes, they have baking pans shaped like characters that you can do all sorts of things with-bake, freeze, etc.

And as for me, the thing I'd like to stock my house with are these because who doesn't want gargoyle computer speakers? (particularly if you're like me, and are attempting to have a haunted mansion themed living room.)

u/oscarjeff · 4 pointsr/HerOneBag

Eagle Creek are supposed to be the best, but there are lots of really inexpensive options on Amazon that work well too. It might be worth at least starting with a cheaper option to see what size combinations work best for you. The combo-size packs aren't always the most useful. For instance, I found I have no use for the large sized cubes—they're just way too big. Three slim cubes are plenty for me for long trips (4+ weeks) in warm weather (similar to these) and two slims are enough for any trips shorter than that. Longer winter trips I use one medium cube + one slim (I need a bit more width for sweaters & heavier fabrics). The mediums are quite large and fit a LOT of clothing though.

There are also compression options too. I've heard great things about Eagle Creek's compression cubes, but I don't use compression cubes so I haven't tried them personally.

u/GladioliRose · 2 pointsr/TheSilphRoad

I'm a daily messenger bag carrier but I used to have several backpacks. There are few i am considering to purchase as well. I'll list them below.


If you want something that will last you for the rest of your life, go tactical. These are great for bug-out bags as well. Some of them will be compiable with Hiker cosplay. Amazon


If tactical isn't your thing and you prefer something urban. Need a cool looking pack that lasts for a long time too? I got you; I have few suggestions. Herschel Supply , Arctic Fox , ASERF , Rhine , Blue Lounge , CaseLogic , and Convey.


If you want to go down on the messenger bag route like I did, then here I go ~! Timbuk , Tumi , MNMUR. I personally am a huge fan of Timbuk's messenger bags.

u/auxilary · 2 pointsr/delta


What I'd recommend is this bag.

Four-wheel bags are easy to maneuver inside of an airport and require little effort to travel with. It is also a very reasonable price for a relatively solid entry-level travel bag, has some style to it and comes from a company with a liberal return policy in the event you do not like it.

The bag will seem small in person, but as long as you fold (or even better, roll) your clothes correctly, and are ok with re-wearing a few core pieces more than once then you will be just fine.

Even better, with Delta, you will be fine with carrying this bag on along with a small personal item like a purse or small back-pack.

Let me know if you've got anymore questions!

u/philosowaffle · 1 pointr/Vive

I actually have several of these spy belts around the house from running. Might not work for a battery pack that large, but works great for the average sized Anker packs. Also super easy to unclip and hand off to the next person in a group setting.

u/cheesepuff18 · 2 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Filson is the famed durable fabric briefcase/messenger. I have the 257 and I love it.

Navali has good prices for what they offer but my first weekender from them broke after like 2 uses. However, their customer service is great and I sent it back to be fixed/replaced. Their second one is still working fine but I haven't put it to heavy use since I got it.

Before my Filson, I had this Samsonite that I got from Amazon Warehouse that worked pretty well.

u/ShadowSpectre47 · 2 pointsr/boardgames

The game is over once all the jewels have been taken/discarded. You do not get your adventurers back, they stay until a dragon is defeated. The reason could be, because some magic cards let you love the jewels from one dragon to another, therefore screwing the other people over.

I love this game and used to bring it out regularly, but had to put it aside for a bit, so it doesn't get overplayed. I always play with the Advanced Rules.

The only problem with the game is trying to distinguish between the gold and silver gems.

The bags are a good idea. Here are some that might work really well, I own some myself, but don't know if they match EVERY color available in the game. It comes with 12 bags (2 of each color), so you might be able to use the extras on another game.

I'm now thinking about purchasing these again for this game. It will come in handy when using the blind thief ability. Thanks for the great idea.

u/MKorostoff · 3 pointsr/EDC

> if you always take pictures like these, could we see some older pictures?

Would love to share, but I don't think I have them any more. I did take a similar picture before backpacking in Europe, driving the American Southwest, and traveling through Israel, but I'd just text them to my Mom. They looked pretty much the same though, I have my packing list pretty set.

> also, you reall wont need anything warmer? not one long sleeve shirt ir even a windbraker?

I wore a hoodie on the plane. Still it was summer in Bangkok and Tokyo, so I was pretty good without a sweater, lol. The only time I was cold was at the summit of Mt. Fuji http://imgur.com/a/T9uvG, though I bought some long underwear on the ground that really helped.

> what's your bag?

This. I was not satisfied with it, it hung really weird on my shoulders, 4/10 would not use again.

> what do you read on your kindle?

Siddhartha in Japan, The English Patient in Thailand. Loved both. Didn't have all that much time for reading though, I mostly did it on planes.

> no camera?

Used my phone camera. Tons of pictures here.

u/mattgif · 4 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Of course it isn't necessary. You can get an OK looking briefcase for $100. And, honestly, it'll probably last a decade just fine.

So why pay for high-end stuff? Well, as you mentioned there are durability issues. That consists in more than just whether the seams will burst open. It has to do with things like the way the leather will wear (corrected leather shows dull spots; that Samsonite I linked will start to have discolored patches and look ratty). Mostly, though, you're paying for attention to detail. Even stitching, nicely finished edges, smooth surfaces inside and out.

Maybe that seems frivolous. But then ask: why get a leather case at all? Why not just get an LL Bean backpack? They're cheap, and last a lifetime. Obviously, the answer is that you want a certain sort of look. That's a choice to go beyond raw functional considerations. So too with wanting something well-made. The reason I suggested canvas bags is because at the OP's price point she could get a flawlessly crafted bag. I think that's something worth valuing.

  1. Seared Tuna with Mango, Kiwi, Avocado Salsa:

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Gently lay the tuna steaks into the hot oil. Cook the tuna on one side for 3 minutes; remove to a plate. Pour the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil into the skillet and let it get hot. Lay the tuna with the uncooked side down into the skillet and cook another 3 minutes; remove from heat immediately.

  2. Dice 1 Mango, 3 Kiwis, 1 Avacado.

  3. Season with Lime Juice

  4. Serves 4.

  1. Life's a lot of fun. There's always something new to see, do, or laugh at. What'll tomorrow bring?

  2. They said that no one could climb Mt. Everest in an inflatable sumo suit. They said it was crazy to try to fly by jumping off the space while flapping your arms. They say it was madness to run with the bulls, naked and painted red. But one man proved them all wrong.

    Come read about /u/rambopandabear, friend, father, lover. The only man to win the Tour de France on a unicycle. The only man to win the Heisman trophy as a cheerleader. The man who single-handedly turned back the Venusian invasion.

i do not have tempered glass panel.

Yes i travel with this one: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B071VG5N9D/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It fits very well, i set a carboard in the bottom to protect against the handle frame, wrap around 2 pair of jogging pants and bingo, its my carry-on. My monitor is S2417DG, fits perfectly in my pelican barrack box. Also, the original packagin is compact and relatively small in comparison to the huge ridiculous box that Asus sends.

Regarding your LM, i didnt hear you need to reapply every 6months. For the delid procedure, i've watched a GamersNexus video and followed step by step what he does. I don't think you ever do. Dmg? no, it would dmg aluminum, but your IHS is not made of Aluminum. You will apply the LM between the die and IHS it will surely stain, thats it.

If you already have an A9x14mm well, use it, otherwise a standard size NF-A9 fits in the rear of your case if you go for the NH-U9S.

On a side note, your quiet and quality setup will good only when you are home. Because when you will be sharing a room with a roomate, he is going to have one these shitty towers or a laptop that sounds like a jet engine.... like the one roomate i have atm. ;)

I have this bag:


My review of it is actually the second review and there are pictures of it full of D&D books. It can't hold 7-8 books, more like 3-5 depending on what else you're bringing, but it's a great bag for if you're a player or a DM that travels light (like a DM that might use a computer/tablet instead of carrying all the books).

My DM uses two bags, one is a sturdy laptop case that holds a few books and his dice, and the other is a larger square bag (not sure what it is but it looks like a big camera bag without the dividers that a camera bag has) that he uses for his miniatures.

I had another DM that actually used a small roller suitcase, which if I decided to DM is what I'd probably use. Something like this:


u/EmpressHotdog · 2 pointsr/RandomActsofMakeup

Oh I have a Jansport big student classic daypack! It's the only thing that will fit everything I need. I have a navy one, but I would get this one if I could, because it's my favorite color. I like solid colors and coral, so this would be my top pick. Also, maybe this is the backpack you're going to get?
Thanks for hosting!

u/dar482 · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion


Thanks everyone for the help. I ended picking this one up. I saw the Kenneth Cole Reaction for under $50, but I just like the look of this one more. Under $90 is a great deal, as online, it seems to sell for a good amount more.

u/teldonh · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I haven't found this bag, but here's some similar bags that I liked:

Affordable- not my favorite leather style, but it looks like it's good quality:

More expensive: this one is gorgeous and made in America by Lotuff, but still out of my price range:

High-end- British company Mulberry makes this. If I had a meth empire, this is the one I would buy:

u/CaffeinatedGuy · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This ;)

Okay, I can't pick just one, so I present you the following. As you'll notice, all three are practical items, but that's because most people would/could use them all.

Most comfortable keyboard I've ever used.

Best remote control ever. Seriously, this thing is easy to program and can be customized any way you want. It's only limitation is the 5 device limit, but that's still enough for most (even me!). This is the model I have, but you may find another model by the same brand that better suits you.

This umbrella is not only head-turning cool, it's also really great quality that's above and beyond what you would expect from something that looks like a novelty. It's even cooler to me because I actually do Japanese swordsmenship, and the other members of our club/dojo are jealous.

u/8lbs6ozBebeJesus · 7 pointsr/travel

I'm a big fan of packing cubes, as they transform the contents of your bag from being 20 individual pieces to 4-5 much more manageable sections. They're basically all the same, the only tip I have is to opt for those which open like clamshell (sort of?) like this as opposed to those which are "top loading" like this. I bought something similar to the top loading ones first and didn't really like that I had to dig past other clothes to get to the bottom.

Another tip is to organize your bags based on the demands of your clothes (one bag for cold weather, one for warm weather, one for sleep wear, or something like that) so that you don't have to open every bag to get a shirt from one, pants from another, etc, etc. I'm sure you'll find a system that works for you.

One I've had for almost two years (Like 1 year and 10 months), http://www.amazon.com/Renegade-Laptop-Tablet-Backpack-Black/dp/B0076D099Q/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1377711292&sr=8-3&keywords=ogio+laptop and it's still going strong. I use it for work, and for a large laptop i need to use for work. I have had another one for 7 years: http://www.amazon.com/OGIO-711105-Black-Metro-Streetpacks-Black/dp/B000NDQNNW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1377711276&sr=8-1&keywords=ogio+metro and it still works great.

Of course, none of these work for a 5yo, they are way way too big. Might I suggest one of these: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003HS5JMQ/ref=oh_details_o09_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Got one for my 4 yo, and it works great for preschool, it's well made BUT, it might not be big enough for normal school. You have to fold a standard piece of paper.

My wife has a Jansport backpack she's used for like 20 years, and it's still being used. But I can't speak from personal experience. That might be the way to go as well.

I've been eyeballing this messenger bag for some time now. $99, Amazon Prime, good brand, and fits your laptop.

A little over your budget, but Samsonite is obviously a good brand. I'd also recommend searching for "Messenger Bag" in Amazon and looking in the ~$70 range. There are a lot of good bags on there.

u/subtex · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Oops, yeah I totally forgot to take and upload some pics. I'll see if I can get some uploaded soon.

My thoughts so far: I'm very happy. I think the mini is the perfect size for how I pack (minimally and light). It's actually larger than I thought it would be even though I did check the measurements.

The canvas is really nice. Strong and clearly will be able to take a beating. The zippers run smooth and without any catches. Love the leather handles. Sturdy and smooth, soft leather.

The one downside is probably the strap. It's not bad at all, but when the bag is packed fully, I can see it messing with my shoulder if I have to haul it for prolonged times. I might look at buying the leather strap they sell as an upgrade.

I took the bag on a weekend trip and I had plenty of room to spare. A bit too much, actually. I could probably go for an even smaller version of this bag as a weekender. The mini to me will be a fine week long trip bag.

To give an example of what I packed (I use Eagle Creek packing cubes. this set: Eagle Creek Travel Gear Pack-It Cube Set and this set of "pack-it sacs" Eagle Creek Travel Gear Pack-It Sac Set), here's a list (I'm borrowing size references from one of the amazon reviews):

  1. Large packing cube (~10 x 14" - roughly the size of a large-format magazine).
  2. Two of the Medium packing cubes (9" x 7" - about the size of a small cereal box).
  3. One normal sized leather dopp kit.
  4. The large and medium sizes of the packing "sacs" were used. I use the large one as my dirty clothes bag, the middle sized one for cables, sketchbook, kindle), small one for
  5. Camera in camera bag (a panasonic g3)

    On the way down the clothes in there were:

  6. 2 t-shirts
  7. pajama pants
  8. tank top
  9. bathing suit
  10. 4 pairs of socks
  11. 3 boxers

    Coming back I was wearing the shorts, so the jeans I had been wearing on the way down were packed instead.

    All of that fit with enough room in the bag to still be able to collapse the top part of the bag down. It had a good 5" or so to spare as clearance still.

    The other thing I will mention is that the good and bad of the canvas is that the bag has no shape on its own. Until you stuff it with your gear, the bag is going to flop in on itself. This is bad if you do not have the bag packed enough to give it some shape. This is great if you plan on packing this bag into a bigger bag on a trip. It folds down smaller than a pair of jeans.

    Hope that helps!

    I'll try and get pics up soon.

After losing my umbrella to a wind gust I just Googled "strongest umbrellas" and got one off Amazon for $20. There were some more expensive ones, but this had stellar reviews and has held up very well through some strong wind. Just be aware there are different diameters, so make sure you don't get a tiny one (unless that's what you're going for) :)

Might be too small for most people, but I got the Kenneth Cole Risky Business messenger bag, and I'm very happy with it.

I haven't put it through too much heavy use yet, so I hesitate to recommend it too strongly, but it should be worth considering.

fear cuts deeper than words

Edit #1 - Replaced #1 #2, #9, #13, #15, edited some text, added bonuses

Okay, so a lot of my items are similar, or are kind of "flexing" the rules, but I will leave official rulings up to you. Here goes!

  1. Something Grey - Strip of magnesium - This actually just got gifted to me. This coal trash can is silver, which is basically grey :D

    2)Something reminiscent of rain - Zen Garden - Flexing the rules. It's only related because it's a garden. An umbrella!! I don't have one of these, and I have no idea why.

  2. Food related - Pineapple corer/slicer

  3. On wishlist not for me (this is for my fiancee) - Apple Cider k-cups

  4. A book you should read - Everyone should have the Joy of Cooking

    6)Item less than a dollar - MP3

  5. Something related to cats - This is related because of that scene in "Christmas Vacation" where the cat gets electrocuted

  6. [Beautiful but not useful - Lego adoption of Brandenburg Gate](

  7. Movie everyone should see once - Not on wishlist - Harlan County, USA. This documentary is nearly perfect in every sense of the word. This movie is so powerful, and so real, it's just unbelievable. One of my favorites. I always suggest it when someone asks "what documentary should I see?"

  8. Something useful when Zombies attack - Kinect Your Shape Fitness Evolved - You need to be able to Outwit, Outrun, and Outlast.

  9. Profound impact on life - Guitar. I really want to learn how to play, and my dad was going to teach me, but he passed before he was able to. It would mean a lot to share that passion with him even though he's already moved on

  10. Add-On Item - Cat6 cable!!!

  11. Most expensive item -It's actually the guitar, so I went with the 2nd most expensive which is a Logitech G19 keyboard Nope. It's actually this amp.

  12. Bigger than a bread box - Mizuno backpack

  13. Smaller than a golf ball - Not sure if a k-cup would count, but I threw it in there. If it doesn't count, I will find something else It doesn't. Here's some ship and anchor cufflinks I really want for my wedding :)

  14. Something that smells wonderful - Kind of cheating, but a different k-cup. Donut shop coffee is the BEST. Changed to a different beverage. I have a horrible addiction to this stuff, and it smells wonderful (to me)

  15. SFW Toy - Legos are a toy!! :D

  16. Helpful going back to school - I listed the Zen Garden again because it's helpful to have something peaceful when going back to school

  17. Something related to your current obsession - I am OBSESSED with Lorde. I have stated this many times over the last week.


    BONUS #1 - I looked through your reddit history (not very hard, but I did look), and came up empty, so I'll just post something later that might fit.

    BONUS #2 - These blankets are made in Oregon, and look SUPER cool. Not on my WL (I have more than enough blankets), but I really like them.

    I may attempt the bonuses tomorrow, we will see. This is definitely a placeholder until rulings on some items are made. Fix'd :D
u/Frauleime · 4 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

> How big can my bag be with out needing to be checked?

Your airline will have all of this information listed. Typically the carryon height is 21.5-22" depending on the carrier.

If you're traveling with an actual suit and you don't want wrinkles, I'd recommend getting a bag like this one https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07FD5MLVB/ which is basically a garment bag that unzips. For the rest of your clothes, utilize packing cubes to be more organized and space efficient. A carryon is plenty big enough for four days, you just have to be organized.

You can also take a personal bag, which usually measures a max of 18x14x8; if you really want maximize space, you can get a cheap bag with those exact dimensions.

Just wear your coat and heaviest shoes with you on the plane, it's more comfortable than lugging them in a bag. Depending on how crisp your clothes need to be, you might want to get a travel steamer too.

u/Scandalchris · 1 pointr/travel

Honestly, I used a higschool backpack like this: https://www.amazon.com/Jansport-Big-Student-Backpack-Black/dp/B000E3D2VM/ref=pd_bxgy_468_img_2/144-1159476-3947922?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B000E3D2VM&pd_rd_r=fe3b2925-308e-11e9-9e3f-3bc4e26de95d&pd_rd_w=UUmnn&pd_rd_wg=9ljUB&pf_rd_p=6725dbd6-9917-451d-beba-16af7874e407&pf_rd_r=2RANH3RQR4V95Q9JNRS9&psc=1&refRID=2RANH3RQR4V95Q9JNRS9

for 7 years until i was gifted a higher quality pack. But this did fine for all those years and ALWAYS fit as a carry on.

Just remember not to bring too much, you can do laundry there, and it's cheap. Have fun!

Check through Floto's store on Amazon, they have some amazing quality leather goods for extremely good prices

u/shrike81 · 1 pointr/boardgames

Buy. It's easily me and my girlfriend favorite game. Once you're familiar with the game set up and break down plus a game is like 30-40 minutes. It's great. Also I highly recommend bags! https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004XDBSEW/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I can't recommend them enough. It makes setting up and putting away the game so much faster. The artwork kind of sucks but think of it that you're getting an amazing game for half the price as you'd get for the same game with fancier artwork.

u/Parelle · 3 pointsr/boardgames

Two options I've used here:
For games I know I like, I either design or use others designs for Artscow bags. They have both drawstring and zip canvas ones (the latter best for game transportation)
Plenty of promo codes exist, if you're trouble finding one I'm happy to generate one - PM me. The best deal here is 10 bags for $20 shipped. There's also a Geeklist with completed bags which should also give you a feel for the size of them.

For games which either require a ton of bags (Castles of Burgundy) or just to have extras, I bought a set of these:
Dozen Bright Color Canvas Drawstring Bags https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004XDBSEW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_W3xzzbMGP2TJX

I think they're a little narrower than my husband likes for drawing tiles but they're not too bad. I use 4 or 5 of them in CoB.

u/detectivemonk · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

While it's not exactly stylish, I use this Jansport backpack at school, and love it. It's got a lifetime warranty, holds a ton of stuff, and is quite comfortable. It doesn't look as square as that picture either, unless you filled the thing with blankets or something, just FYI.

u/BloodyIrishmanGaming · 1 pointr/DnD

Been seeking out something that works really well for this as well.

u/kuzai123 · 1 pointr/boardgames

After seeing your comment, I searched around on BGG which led me to these - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004XDBSEW

u/atllauren · 2 pointsr/Atlanta

I have these -- this is just one set, there's are lot of other sizes that are sold as sets or individually. I've heard the eBags brand makes really good ones as well.

It keeps everything really organized. For shorter trips, I pack an outfit per cube and then you just open the cube and have everything right there. But longer trips (when I don't have enough cubes per day) I organize them by category. So for this trip, I have sweaters in one cube, leggings in one cube, jeans/nicer pants in one cube, etc etc. It keeps everything nicely contained and you can really fit more in your suitcase with them.

u/felixthegirl · 9 pointsr/medicalschool

I used this last year. There are other very similar ones as well. This bag was nice because it had pockets for shoes and the inner compartment was pretty big. I could fit 2 suits and a dress for the preinterview dinner in the garment part. The suits also held up, I didn’t have to iron or steam much in the hotel.

u/laxatk · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I was wondering about this myself. In a user posted image on amazon it looks a little more true to itself and still I don't mind the way it looks. I'm also using this as my first bag and am hoping it will hold me over until I'm well established and have a little more cash flow to run with. Appreciate the input.

u/DamnItHeelsGood · 5 pointsr/solotravel

I second the two straps comment. Get one of these! My campus is small too and there are days when I have to pack so much in it.

But in all seriousness, this is relatively inexpensive and has served me very well. The zippers are high quality. NB: the straps feel odd at first but then fit much better once you wear it a little.

u/mikron2 · 3 pointsr/Coachella

I've never had any issues, but after all the comments/threads here and the /r/Lollapalooza sub I decided to get one of the SPIbelt running belts. Tried it on and it seems comfortable enough with space for my phone and easily hidden under my shirt.

u/segacs2 · 15 pointsr/solotravel

I try to avoid having too much stuff, because less is more. Having said that, here are a few of my most useful accessories:

  • Travel towel: Teeny-tiny and useful in so many situations.
  • Travel hairdryer: Small enough to fit in the side pocket of my bag; dual voltage so no need for a converter; allows me to avoid going to sleep with wet hair or looking like a hobo.
  • Packing cubes - I usually take one for clothes and one for undies. Invaluable for keeping my pack organized.
  • Power bank - for charging my phone or USB devices on the go.
  • Camping headlamp - don't be that douche who flips on the overhead light in a hostel dorm room while everyone is asleep.
u/not-a-person-people · 2 pointsr/onebag

You can find them cheaper, but this is what I use. It makes a world of difference! ... another trick to use with or on it's own is the "ranger roll" technique... YouTube has loads of videos on how to perform. Just another way to keep it clean and easy to pack... while not wrinkling your clothing.

1 small (socks, underware)

I found it cheaper at a local store. It's still carry-on size, which it seems like you're going for. Plus 1 on the winter clothes comment, you're going to appreciate the extra room. I overpacked for my trip (it was my first major backpacking adventure), but for my next one I'm going to bring less and will still be glad to have this bag. Just the right amount of pockets/compartments and space. Travel cubes were also a big help:https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-4-Piece-Packing-Cube-Set/dp/B014VBGUCA/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1486581909&sr=8-6&keywords=travel+cubes
And get yourself some camping soap for washing clothes! One little bottle will last you a long time, you don't need much.

u/koottravel · 1 pointr/onebag

not a copy in the print, but in the design of the compression bag. pretty sure eagle creek were the first to do compression bags and the build of OPs is spot on with eagle creeks.

u/Spatulakoenig · 2 pointsr/consulting

Two things on your comments regarding bags that just have one large compartment and documents.

  1. I find a fold-over clipboard works well as both somewhere to have a small amount of personal paper/reading/print outs and a section divider for such a large compartment.

    Even the cheap ones look decent and the fold-over means even if you have to get it out of your bag, contents aren’t seen.

    Example: https://www.amazon.com/Looneng-Clipboard-Folder-Padfolio-Vertical/dp/B07D1JL7PZ

  2. I’ve found the Eagle Creek Pack-It series also really useful. Use the cubes for gym gear / random stuff, and the garment folder good for workwear - providing you can somehow deal with inevitable creases at the hotel which will be far fewer if all your shirts are non-iron.

    Garment folder: https://www.amazon.com/Eagle-Creek-Travel-Luggage-Garment/dp/B00F9S819U

It doesn't rain all that much in Georgia, but when I'm anticipating it I carry an umbrella on me. Usually I just leave it in my car though. My brother gave me one of these for my birthday years ago and that's typically what I use. I don't care for umbrellas enough to spend money on a different one, and I kind of like this anyway - it's large enough to cover myself and my bag, pretty sturdy, and neat looking.

u/Hakote · 1 pointr/onebag

I like them because they're ultra-lightweight, durable, and translucent enough to get an idea of what's inside. They're made.of a siliconized nylon that "slides" very well, so you can actual stuff a decent amount in a small space and be able to drag what you need out easily.

My usual cold-weather packing list uses the compression cubes (linked) and the smaller 2-sided Clean/Dirty cube. The larger of the two compression cubes easily holds a pair of pants, a sweater, and two or three t-shirts. The smaller compression cube holds a down jacket and gloves. The Clean/Dirty cube holds my socks, underwear, and whatever I sleep in.


u/flyzombiefly · 4 pointsr/KingstonOntario

Is owl a brand? You have it capitalized like it is. Or do you mean just general school supplies with pictures of owls on them?

I have no idea where to go if it's a brand, but Urban Outfitters downtown usually has some random owl-patterned things. Indigo was also good for those kind of things, but I think they're closed now, so maybe Chapters?

And for binders you can always get the ones with a translucent pocket over the cover that you can slip a sheet of paper into, and customize it with whatever pictures you want. That's what I did all through high school - much cheaper than buying new binders every year.

I also found this if you're not adverse to online shopping.

I would still suggest avoiding them. I got a Floto one to match my Cenzo duffel. Amazing quality, and lifetime guarantee. Floto and Cenzo get ignored in the Italian leatherware scene for reasons unknown to me, but I'm guessing that it has to do with their extremely affordable pricetag and the fact that they deal on sites like ebay and amazon.

For the size and price, it is very well-made and it has never given me trouble during heavy rain and wind. I carry it around in my bag every day in case of unexpected rain, and it would even fit in a purse.

Repel Windproof Travel Umbrella with Teflon Coating

I bought this umbrella a few years ago and it's been bullet proof. It also opens and closes like a stiletto knife which is fun.

Has anyone compared Navali Leather Mainstay to the Canvas Boatswain?

Do you think the leather is good enough to be worth the extra ~50 bucks compared to the waxed canvas of the boatswain?

Or should I go for this Samsonite instead of the other 2?

u/1LB1 · 1 pointr/medicalschool

I have this one and I'm a huge fan since it has a compartment for your shoes as well.

u/plasmatorture · 3 pointsr/boardgames

The original box works fine: Put animal tiles, knowledge tiles, goods, buildings, and the center black tiles each in their own smaller portion of the insert. Leave them there for gameplay - when pulling new tiles just grab out of there without looking like you're pulling out of a cup. Everything else can get dumped in the big section since none of that needs to be randomized.

But I bought a set of novelty bags on amazon after a few games of that, and moved my copy of Agricola out of bags and into this box (which, incidentally, is superior to plano since it has rounded bottoms for each compartment). Now the 5 types of tiles that need to be randomized in Castles each have their own cloth bag, and workers, silverlings, castles/mines/boats, and everything else have their own plastic bag respectively.

Not OP, but I bought these and I'm returning them. They were very poorly stitched. The yellow one was falling apart the second I opened the packaging. If you have any sewing skill, drawstring bags are not that difficult to make. I've made one for Carcassonne tiles and am in the process of making another for Alhambra. Pretty decent tutorial here.

u/rainbowterfly · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I bought myself this one a few months ago. It's great!

u/HobbNobbin · 4 pointsr/onebag

These were reommended by an article I read early on. First I ordered them and made surr my stuff would fit, then I bought a bag that would fit them!

Jansport. Seriously. I tried buying cheap backpacks for years, and I finally bit the bullet and bought jansport when my friend told me he'd had his since 7th grade (as we were graduating high school). I'm now starting my first year of grad school, and I've had mine since I started college (so 4 years now), and it still looks new. My friend's backpack is also going strong. No rips, it only looks dirty because of how long he's used it. Best part? Costs $30. If you're worried about a laptop compartment, just buy a laptop sleeve and stick it in there. Oh, and it has a lifetime warranty.

Obviously your phone has better vision than your eyes. Might I suggest you see an optometrist as everyone bar you has picked this out as an umbrella.

Is there such a thing as a tactical umbrella? I'd probably buy it

u/KelMHill · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Hard to find black these days. Brown is way more popular.




















u/rnjbond · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice


Honestly, it's under $20, so it's not a travesty if you forget it on the train, and it looks plenty stylish with a suit. Also, wind resistant and will keep you dry.

u/nialtheho · 1 pointr/volt

I bought this cheap umbrella on Amazon (link) and it's worked out fine for the few times we've needed it. It can occasionally slide forward into the door pocket but for the most part it's just fine.

This Samsonite Columbian Leather flapover case, Brown is what I've used for years. Sturdy, good looking, holds 14 and 15.6in laptops at the same time.

Jansport Big Student. 31 liters, does not look at all tactical or hikerly, comes with a lifetime warranty, available in an astonishing variety of colors and patterns. I've been using one as a work bag (taxi driving) for the last four years and it's holding up just fine. I have another that I used for community college that also is fine. My cat puked on the college bag once. I washed it on gentle cycle and let it air dry on a drying rack. It came out looking brand-new.

u/clyde_drexler · 3 pointsr/running

I agree. This is the one that I use and it holds my phone (iPhone 6), car key, and card holder sized wallet with plenty more room.

u/HugoChavezRamboIII · 0 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I swear I'm not being facetious, but this one is pretty awesome.

Now, I know you're thinking 'that'll look stupid' -- but that's because you're thinking with your critical hat on. I bought one of these this time last year (was sick of crappy collapsible umbrellas always breaking), and have received countless compliments. The fact that it has a samurai handle isn't immediately obvious, and the people that do notice think 'heh, that's pretty cool.'

I know this is MFA, but consider this; have you ever seen an unfashionable samurai?

u/referenceattack · 1 pointr/AskNYC

I have this one. It's compact and holds up well in wind.

I've got the brown. The color is still strong, 1 year later. No issues w/ tears/rips/etc... I use it for school (grad), and don't really have a need for it w/ work.

u/ersatzryan · 0 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

I don't know about that one, but samsonite leather brief is on sale at amazon.


u/KenzouKurosaki · 0 pointsr/BuyItForLife

So I've been using this samsonite for the past 3.5 years and it's in pretty good condition so far considering the abuse (rain and snow) it has taken.


You said you dont need a laptop pocket so I guess that's a plus.

u/inflatablejerk · 3 pointsr/filmfashion

im also interested in this.
closest one i could find is this one, but it seems a little to small. I think i will be buying it soon.

If you are determined on company, this might be to late, but Fjallravens Kanken is as buy it for life as it gets, and not awfully expensive. I just checked up on the one my father uses on daily basis, which have been going for 15-20 years by now, and the only sign of use is that the colour has faded.

u/Brown_Sandals · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

I am currently looking for a good travel garment bag. I like the design of something like this, but not 100% sold on the reviews as it looks kind of cheap. Looking to spend no more than $150-200... Any recommendations?

u/Mlcknight06 · 1 pointr/boardgames

Amazon bags. They work fine but aren’t the same colors as CoB.

u/RynoKenny · 2 pointsr/Boardgamedeals

On recommendation, I picked these bags up with the purchase as well

I didn't know until today that there were expansions

I'll check them out eventually, I've been making a rule that I need to milk the base game to almost boredom before purchasing expansions, no matter how good they are. Saves money on expansions for games I don't even really like and increases longevity of the game.

I think a backpack is overkill. Just get a running belt or a Flip Belt. They've a much smaller profile, are much lighter, and won't bounce around since they're made of elastic and pull tight to the body.
