    Tynan includes S19 in his 2015 Gear Post

    Tynan's 2011 gear post was what introduced me to Tom Bihn. He's still using his synapse!

    I left this for last because it's become such a part of my life that it just blends in for the most part. It's not perfect (I hate the laptop compartment), but it's the best thing available now and works very well. In particular I love the organization, the size, and the design. It's fully functional and is inconspicuous enough that I'm constantly asked where my luggage is. I've had this one for years now and other than a little wear on the waterproof zippers, it looks brand new.

    I was in the process of custom designing my own pack, but it was taking too long between iterations, so it's currently sitting in my closet unfinished. Maybe someday I'll do what it takes to get it into production, but it's looking unlikely.

    This pack may not be on the list next year, only because it's half empty with all of my gear loaded into it. Maybe I can talk them into making a 15 liter version?

    He is one of the people I read who convinced me to get an S19. Now I own two. Haha!

    Maybe someone should tell him about the DLBP? :)

    That is really funny - the king of minimalist travel inspired your excess purchase...I almost died laughing :)

    What to do,? The love of a good bag (or three) trumps minimalist living. Haha!
