The Updated Aeronaut 45 (and a new color)
Ah, fall. The crisp mornings, the bonfire-bright hues adorning every tree, and a perfect opportunity to hit the road or take to the skies for an adventure, large or small. Fall is also a season of change, and while some may consider these autumnal months heralds of year’s end, they also announce beginnings—the turning over of a new leaf.
It’s the ideal time to re-introduce the Aeronaut 45. It’s still the nimble and consummately versatile travel bag it’s always been, but with design updates that make it even better:
- Zippered dividers replace the snaps in the main compartment, which, depending on your needs and what you’re carrying, allow you to use the Aeronaut 45 as a one, two, or three compartment bag.
- The formerly open-top end pocket has been replaced by a more secure zippered pocket. You can never have too many zippered pockets!
- The Aeronaut 45’s YKK Aquaguard waterproof coil zippers are now sewn “right side up,” making them easier to open and close and helping them to last even longer.
The updated Aeronaut 45 is available for pre-order. (Don’t want to wait? The “old style” Aeronaut 45 is still available for a limited time.) If you’re looking for a slightly smaller bag with all the same great features as the new Aeronaut 45, consider the Aeronaut 30. If you can’t decide which size Aeronaut is for you, check out this video, which compares how much stuff each model can hold and how they fit on people of different heights:
We’re also stoked that the updated Aeronaut’s also ringing in a brand new color: Verde 1050d Ballistic nylon. It’s vibrant and bright (think of our Olive 1000d Cordura fabric, but greener), and just the thing if you’re looking for a little jolt of summery freshness that’s welcome on any journey, at any time of year.
We posted a very early heads-up on our March 1st, 2019 (roughly 6%) price increase in the Forums along with news of Shop Bags in 210d ballistic nylon.
