I traveled from Austin to Kansas City for the weekend with my Ebags Mother Lode Travel Backpack. The backpack is fantastic for packing everything I would ever need for a long weekend in Kansas City. The weather was going to fluctuate from freezing to the high 60s in the sun during midday. 

I strapped my Cool-Dry Frame onto my backpack.

As I traveled through TSA checkpoints and to my gate, my back stayed cool and dry in the airport. I also had to take a shuttle to the car rental place. Not a problem! I stayed cool and dry.

By nature, I sweat a lot. Not on this trip.

The Cool-Dry Frame allowed the cool breeze to hit my back, making the difference (see images below).  

Part 1 of 4: Weather Check

My outbound flight was at 6 AM, and the temperature was in the 40s. I wore a down jacket as I walked through the airport.
When I landed in Kansas, it was in the 40s, and the wind was blowing.

Part 2 of 4: Hike Check

This week I left the trails for the airports. I took my Ebag (size 22" × 14" × 10") with me. I would say it is similar to a 30L. It has plenty of compartments and space for four days worth of clothes.

I would be staying four days in Kansas City, returning on Monday.

Part 3 of 4: Sweat Check

My back was completely dry. I've taken several trips with my Cool-Dry Frame, and my back stays dry each time. It can be annoying to travel with a backpack when your back sweats, and I used to have a roller because it beat having a sweaty back.

However, now that I can walk around with a dry back and not pull a piece of luggage behind me, I'm delighted!

My Cool-Dry Frame was comfortable on my back, and I could feel the coolness on my back. It made my travel much more enjoyable.

The verdict: Dry and comfortable trip through airports. Plus, I could maneuver through the airports much more quickly with my backpack.
