I just received my 3.0 Carry-on. I’ve been wanting one since the first kickstarter (V1).
Love the bag, it has all the space I want, super minimalist, beautiful, but it’s not so comfortable to carry because of the the back cover, the one that you can close with the zipper so that the shoulder straps will be hidden.
Now, I didn’t expect this. I never intended to use that cover, I will carry it as a backpack 99.9% of the time, and if I carry it as a bag I don’t mind the shoulder straps dangling there. I would prefer not to, but certainly not at the cost of everyday comfort.
So, I tried all the different adjustments, basically there’s 2 problems:
- the zipper path at the bottom keeps pressing my lower back, and it’s a metal uncomfortable thing, and
- At the top, the rolled up cover makes a bump that pushes the shoulder straps a little forward and it feels weird.
It’s not super discomfortable, but enough that I want to change it. I tried folding the zipper path outward, it sort of works, but for the bump from the cover I found no solution.
So I’m thinking in cutting the whole thing off. My concern is, how do I do it properly, without leaving ugly threads?
I was thinking of cutting it with a good scissors and then burning any loose thread. Anyone has a better solution or idea?
I obviously want to do the least amount of damage. I’m also considering taking it to a seamstress and see if she can do it. Any thoughts?
