    What do you mean 3 pouches per orders? There are 4 sizes of Pouches, yummy Cordura colors come and go. I usually get 2 sets of the 4 sizes in each colors.

    I have use for all the sizes. My favorites are the Clear Pouches.

    I haven't bought any of the large ones yet! I am placing an order next week so maybe I will pick one of those up.

    I'm definitely interested in a Synapse too - every new trip should be accompanied by a new TB bag! My question is about the PCSB (Packing Cube Shoulder Bag - we need a glossary of terms, starting with FOT!) . Anyway, will a PCSB fit in the bottom pocket of the Synapse? I'm thinking that because it's not rigid, it'll fit anywhere but what if it's nearly full?

    has anyone used a Synapse as an on-the-go camera bag? I wonder if pulling it off you back and pulling out the camera can get a bit tiresome after a few missed photo-ops?

    They're life changing! I have a pouch for nearly EVERYTHING! I'm running out of stuff to put into the pouches .

    Here is something I did in mine.

    http://forums.tombihn.com/bag-review...ere-1-way.html

    I will usually be carrying a body and lens if planning to shoot so I don't need to put it away a lot but so far I really like it even if I am removing it a lot.
    I mainly like it as a Stealth Bag,it just does not look like a typical Camera bag or pack.

    I used to have an assortment of pouches and stuff sacks in my S19. Now I'm down to the Freudian Slip, one (sometimes two, but really I can combine the contents) size 3 Stuff Sack in the main compartment, and one size 1 Stuff Sack in a side compartment. For me the Synapse works better if I trust the built-in organization. But yes, I'd definitely get a bunch of key straps (mix up the sizes till you figure out which length you like better). And maybe a double carabiner or two. Or alternately, some of the triangle hooks from the Parts page.
