This time, however, I wanted to forego checking a bag and rely solely on carry-on luggage for a week long trip. Standard Luggage Co. offered their carry-on backpack to [...]

It becomes even more of a challenge when strict weight and size limits are imposed as on my recent trip to the Rio Parismina Lodge in the jungles of Costa Rica, for a week of tarpon fishing.   The WaterField Designs [...]
