The Aeronaut 30, or A30, is an excellent bag for shorter trips or super minimalist travel. With only 30L the bag has a limited capacity for gear but makes up for that with its small size.
Most carry-on only bags come in at 40L or 45L which can be too much for shorter trips. In my experience, if you have capacity in your luggage, you will fill it with something.
The typical scenario that happens to me is I have a four day trip for work. I break out my 40L bag and pack half of it with four nights worth of clothes. Then I end up filling the rest with of the carry-on with things like exercise gear, redundant technology like a backup charger, and extra shirts and clothes that I won't wear.
With a 30L carry-on, you avoid all that overpacking, and you'll only carry and travel with what you need. 45L is a lot of weight to support while standing in a security line.
The A30, like every bag, is made with ballistic fiber. Using the term "ballistic" fiber for a carry-on is pretty weird. I don't want my bag to survive a gunshot, I want the bag to survive being scraped against a concrete sidewalk while I wait for a taxi.
I realize ballistic fiber is probably a marketing term more than anything else. I guess surviving gunshots makes the exterior tough.
"The Aeronaut 30 is one of Tom Bihn’s most well-known bags and for a good reason. The duffel style backpack is extremely versatile since it is perfect for ultralight car camping, minimal plane travel, and short weekend trips."
"The Aeronaut 30 is something you’ll be sure to use in various occasions. Also, one thing you can always be sure of the top-notch quality and support you’ll get from Tom Bihn. I never saw any bag that is so well made and where the after purchase support is so strong. You basically get what you pay for it."
