As EDCers, you probably carry a lot of gear when going about your busy day. Whether it's the daily grind or hopping on a plane to get away from it all, keeping your essentials organized is a top priority. And when it comes to doing it right, few companies do it as well as Aer. Whether making it easy to keep up an active lifestyle or sleekly streamlining the way you work, they have years of experience behind their bags. With this year's new Travel Collection they take a fresh look at their popular jetsetter line, making it easier than ever to stay prepared on your next commute or adventure.

Aer's new Travel Collection takes the 5 bags from the original line and gives them some fresh new upgrades. For the two larger bags, the Travel Pack 2 and Flight Pack 2, comfort and security features were added to make them even more (literally) painless to travel with. For the Travel Pack 2, a new removable hip belt, redesigned shoulder straps, and new lockable zippers get paired with a luggage pass-through and a new quick access laptop pocket to make it a strong option for one-bag travel. With its 3 ways to carry, The Flight Pack 2  gets a new front organization pocket, side bottle pocket, and the same new pass-through and secure zippers as the Travel Pack. It's a versatile work bag that can handle all your work essentials, no matter how light or heavy they get.

The Travel Sling and Day Sling 2 round out the collection with smaller offerings for a regular EDC or daypack when fewer essentials are needed for your activities. The larger Travel Sling gives you a sleek, rectangular space that's perfect for carrying a laptop or large tablet. A 2-way sling strap lets you strap the bag flush against your back or as a messenger for quick access to its top pocket and main compartment, the latter of which comes with roomy interior organization. The updated Day Sling 2 is perfect for EDC when your pockets just aren't enough, with a redesigned ergonomic strap and a sleeker profile that still fits up to a 7.9” tablet within its inner pockets.

And last but not least, the Travel Kit is Aer's take on the classic dopp kit, fitted with a stowaway YKK hook that gives you a hanging option to keep your bathroom essentials within reach (and away from wet surfaces). Two interior zippered compartments let you separate your product, while an exterior toothbrush holder makes it easy to dry yours off when wrapping up your routine. And like all of their bags, the Travel Kit comes decked out with Aer's signature design combination of black weather-resistant 1680D Cordura ballistic nylon (with other color options in a heather gray 900D polyester and a 1050D black camo nylon), AquaGuard YKK zippers, and water-resistant interior lining.

Whether running daily errands or packing for your dream vacation, Aer's new Travel Collection gives you the functionality you need in a sleek style that's all their own. The collection just launched today on Aer's site, which you can check out at the link below.

What's the difference between the day sling and the day sling 2? I saw some differences (i.e. the location of the carry strap) but didn't see a comparison, so wondered if you knew what they might be?

Hey Chuck, I'm waiting to get mine in the mail so I'll let you know, but besides the strap placement there are 2 openings now (front and top), and the rear secret pocket now having a "top" entry rather than flush against the back.
Hi Chuck -- some of the differences include the strap location, the smaller/compact size and the additional back compartment (the original Day Sling only had one compartment). Hope this helps!

Thanks for answering! One of the problems that I had with v1 was that I couldn't put an a5 sized notebook or my 8" tablet in it without some force being used to zip it. It seemed that the dimensions were more suited to them this time, but then you said it was smaller/more compact, which confused me. Would this fit an a5 notebook (mine is actually not a5, but a code and quill traveller - 5.5" x 7.7"). And the tablet is an 8" Galaxy S2. Thanks for any help!
