I used the synapse 25 on my last trip with a MEC large packing cube inside for my clothes. I am thinking of switching over to the packing cube shoulder bag, but I am curious how it would fit. Does anyone have a picture they can share of the pcsb inside the s25? Also, how many clothes can fit into the pcsb? Thanks!

I happen to have a PCSB packed already for a trip next week, and this is what I have in it:

Main pocket:
1 pair of linen trousers, rolled and placed along the bottom lengthwise
4 H&M size medium short sleeved tshirts, rolled
(A couple of pairs of summer weight socks to be packed)

Side pocket:
4 pairs of underwear, rolled
2 bras (no underwire)

It fits very well in the S25.

In the main pocket it leaves a ton of room on top for other stuff, but if you want to fit in other full length stuff like a laptop, it also fits in the open internal pocket.

ETA:
And here is a pic of the tops all lined up, pushed to the top of the bag because they're sitting on the trousers.

Hope this helps!

Is that the internal frame I see?

Yes. I had the S25 for about a year, maybe more, before the frames came out, and the frame makes such a huge difference to how the bag feels on my back. To me, the frame is an absolute must.

Thatís good to know. It hurts my back when I carry a heavy load, so I have been thinking of getting the internal frame.
