Ruck's Sac & Messenger Style Swift?
I miss this little backpack. Is it coming back? I loved the front and flap pouches plus (at 5'2) it fit me perfectly.
I love my Imago but wish it had pockets like the Swift does and more pencil slots on the inside for my knitting needles. I love the side, soft-lined pockets where I keep my glasses. I wish my Imago had just a bit more room. I've bought and returned bigger messenger bags because they just didn't fit right. I'm going to buy a couple of yarn and clear organizer bags to use in my Imago, hopefully that will be enough. Now all I need is a way to carry a water bottle and a soft compartment for my Samsung Galaxy Note.
hi vimcat: i have the Ruck's Sac and love it. And I am even shorter than you. the Synapse however is the grown up Ruck's Sac and is wonderful. It fits perfectly; is really compact; and holds a ton.
Yes: the Imago could do with a way to drop in pens and pencils. And the side pockets are no good for Iphones or anything similar. Designed for older cell phones, i guess.
A design question for TB: why does he have those O-rings on the same side as the pockets? I can sometimes see the logic of it; however, in the Imago, the pouches then have to nestle in the pocket which defeats the purpose of the pocket anyhow. But maybe he has his reasons.
I'm also the same height as you guys, and I like the size of my Synapse. :-)
