    You mean their stuff will be available via J.S. Burly's? If so, finally.... something that I can review that drives a piece of the sales your way. Awesome Jon! ;)

    Straight up, my hand to God. I have no idea.

    Giving it so thought, seeing this is the bag sub forum, I would guess high end bags??

    Yes. The Aeronaut, Tri-star, and Western Flyer are very popular among the one bag travel crowd because they are supposedly light, hold a lot for their size, and extremely durable. They also offer a wide range of accessories for their bags.

    As far as the backpacks and other gear, I could see where they would appeal to the EDC Crowd, which is probably why Tom is interested in partnering with the forum. Based on what I've read, the Synapse looks like it has excellent organization for a smaller day pack (I think Moosh picked one of these up a short time ago). The Smart Alec is a little larger and a very clean, minimalistic design. The ID and Ego have much potential as mid-sized messenger bags. Those are the ones that have caught my eye.

    Of course, I haven't personally EDC'ed any of them yet so I can't endorse them at this point but there are many reviews on the net - particularly of the three travel bags I mentioned.

    Oh, and I believe everything is made in the U.S.A.

    Welcome TB from Seattle!
    They make awesome products and I am having my eye over Aeronaut with all the packing cubes. Perhaps a Raffle is in order? :)

    If I didn't have to carry a suit with me when I travel I would totally one-bag it on all my trips in an Aeronaut, but the suit is the deal-breaker.
