Meet Flissy and Her Tom Bihn Aeronaut 45 Backpack Review

My name is Flissy and I am a professional belly dancer and yoga teacher. I travel a bunch to attend trainings and conferences for yoga and dance. My husband and I also travel for fun.

We love hiking and sightseeing of all kinds and we enjoy the freedom of packing light. Both of us travel pretty much exclusively with the Tom Bihn Aeronaut 45 — we each have one!

Tom Bihn Aeronaut 45. The bag itself retails for $295. I have a bunch of packing cubes designed just for this bag, and all the accessories I have cost another $250.

What’s your backpack brand and model? How much does this backpack typically cost?

I’ve had my Aeronaut for about six years. It’s gone everywhere! Italy, Aruba, all over the US on road trips and flights.

How long have you had your backpack and where have you traveled with it?

The Aeronaut has given me so much freedom! It fits easily in an overhead bin on any plane, even when it looks crowded with other bags. I’ve also slid it under the seat in a pinch.

What do you like most about your backpack? Any down sides?

It’s very comfortable to carry, even when packed full. This was a life saver when my husband and I went to Cinque Terre and had to hike up what seemed like a million steps to get to our hotel. I feel like I can pick up and go anywhere anytime with this bag!

I also love how well-designed the interior is with its one large compartment and well-planned smaller compartments. By using the custom packing cubes, it’s easy to keep everything organized, which is essential when I am on a long trip with multiple stops.
