Some months ago, we experimented making some packing videos but never got around to sharing them. So here they are: a series of videos demonstrating how to pack a few of our popular bags. Let us know what you think—if people like them, maybe we’ll be inspired to make more.
Part I: The Aeronauts 45 and 30
Besides snacks, dogs, and naps, there’s nothing we like more than the pleasure of packing a well-organized bag. We’ve designed our travel bags (like both sizes of the Aeronaut) with strategically-placed compartments and pockets so they’ll pack like a dream right out of the box. At the same time, using a few or several accessories allows you to customize your bag’s organization, whether a little or a lot. That’s why we offer accessories in a bevy of shapes, sizes, styles, and colors.
These two videos demonstrate packing strategies for the Aeronaut 45 and the Aeronaut 30 using just a few accessories.** Then the same stuff gets packed again, this time with the help of several more accessories.
** We’ve updated the design of a few items since making the videos; you can see the new versions by clicking on the links.

It’s true: these days many questions can be answered through an internet search. In spite of this, libraries endure. Not only do they have a transformative effect on individuals and society, libraries themselves have evolved over the years to keep pace with changes in how people seek and use information. What remains constant: the library makes access to…Read more...
