When I think about travel, I think about upgrading my gear. I am a firm believer that you can never have too many bags… until it comes to actually footing the bill. Then I’m a flip-flopper.
See a bag. Check it out. Add it to my cart. Leave it in my cart. Think about it. Go back and stalk it. Almost complete the purchase. Think. Stalk. Lather. Rinse. Repeat.
I am currently stalking two bags…
Do I need either of them? No, not really.
Do I want to spend the money on them? No, not really.
Do I stalk them online every few days. Yup.
So… If I don’t need them, why do I want them so bad? I love the idea of them.
It’s a different style than Tom Bihn. I love Tom Bihn, but different is good. And I already have the 45.
So, why haven’t I bought one, yet? I have the 45. Do I really need the Air?
Yes, it is a bit smaller; but, most of the time I can use the extra space in the 45. Example, last week on a trip to California for only 4 days I put my camera bag in the 45 instead of carrying it separately.
So, do I really need to spend the money on the Air? Weigh in. Let me know what you think!
What’s the other bag I’m stalking?
Toiletry kits. Everyone makes one. I already own a few. But, I still haven’t found that perfect kit.
My L.L. Bean kit is too big for air travel.
My Tom Bihn 3-D clear organizer isn’t big enough.
Then I see that Tom has come out with the Spiff.
I am intrigued.
Could this be the toiletry bag I’ve been waiting for? The toiletry bag I need? My toiletry bag soul mate?
It’s possible. But, since I have made do with other bags, do I really need to spend the money?
