    Hi brianwdavidson and welcome to the Forums!

    It looks like the FAQ link in the description isn't working right now...
    Here's the relevant blog post: https://www.tombihn.com/blogs/main/synik-faq#cubeme

    That looks like:
    3DOC clear
    small A45 Laundry Packing Cube
    large A45 Packing Cube
    Darcy can confirm and also look into why the link isn't working

    ETA: and if you're trying to place a pre-order and want to add the accessories, you can also message, email, or call the fine folks in Customer Service if you need to know quicker
    I like all the blues and greys...and all the happy citrus colours too! My search unicorn is the Sapphire Dyneema original Small Shop Bag...

      I was also trying to link to the Blog FAQ about packing cubes for the Synik 30 and Synik 22. However, I think that in addition to the 3D Clear Organizer Cube (in Northwest Sky Halcyon), those might be the large and small packing cubes for the Aeronaut 30, rather than the Aeronaut 45, because I stopped to check my Synik 30, and I don’t think there’s enough room to fit in a Small Packing Cube for either the Aeronaut 30 or the Aeronaut 45 if you insert a large (or large laundry) packing Cube for the Aeronaut 45 there.

      I cross-checked this by looking at Cristina’s Synik 30 reviewed as travel bag thread. (She uses 3 Small Aeronaut 30 Laundry Packing Cubes, where 2 Small A30 Packing Cubes = 1 Large A30 Packing Cube). I also looked at bartleby’s Travelling with a Synik (30) thread. He uses the large A30 laundry packing Cube and packs other items where the Small A30 packing cubes would fit.

      So I think:
      3D Clear Organizer Cube (Northwest Sky Halcyon)
      Small Aeronaut 30 Packing Cube (or Laundry Packing Cube) in Northwest Sky
      Large Aeronaut 30 Laundry Packing Cube in Northwest Sky

      But someone else can check me on this. Also the Blog page on COMING SOON: THE SYNIK 22 AND SYNIK 30 BACKPACKS has links to different reviews with pack ups:

        Do we know if this is the A45 packing cubes or the A30 packing cubes yet? I hope to order a set like the photo.

          John,

          The information was in my previous post, where I also stated that if you used a large packing Cube for A45 in the Synik 30, there is no room to insert the small packing Cube. These are the A30 packing cubes, and to identify all the accessories shown in a frame near the end of the video, I’ve annotated a screen capture:

          3D Clear Organizer Cube, Northwest Sky
          7.1" (w) x 4.3" (h) x 2" (d) / 180 (w) x 110 (h) x 50 (h) mm

          Mini Ghost Whale Organizer Pouch, Coyote Mesh
          Mini Ghost Whale Organizer Pouch, Nebulous Grey 525 Ballistic
          External Dimensions:
          3.5" (w) x 5.1" (h) / 90 (w) x 130 (h) mm

          Aeronaut 30 Small Packing Cube, Northwest Sky
          12" / 305 mm x 6" / 155 mm x 4.1" / 105 mm

          Aeronaut 30 Large Packing Cube, Northwest Sky
          12" / 305 mm x 12" / 305 mm x 4.1" / 105 mm

          For information purposes, here are the dimensions of Aeronaut 45 Packing Cubes, so that you can check for yourself that putting the two cubes together exceeds the height of the Synik 30

          Aeronaut 45 Large Packing Cube 13.4" / 340 mm x 13.4" / 340 mm x 4.3" / 110 mm

          Aeronaut 45 Small Packing Cube 13.4" / 340 mm x 6.7" / 170 mm x 4.3" / 110 mm

          Height of A30 Packing Cubes + depth of 3D Organizer Cube = 6” + 12” + 2” = 20”

          Synik 30 dimensions: 13.4" (w) x 20" (h) x 8.0" - 10.8" (d) / 340mm (w) x 508mm (h) x 205 - 275mm (d)

          Height of A45 Packing Cubes = 6.7” + 13.4” = 21.1” Already exceeds height of Synik 30 with no room for 3DOC on top

          If you want to use an A45 Large Packing Cube, you’re probably better off putting the clothing in the rest of the space, or you might be able to use an underpacked A30 Small Packing Cube, or other smaller accessories like stuff sacks or a Snake Charmer. imagineez shows the A45 Large Packing Cube and a number of other accessories at the end of his first post in his Synik 30 Review: The New Pack for You? thread. (Scroll all the way down to find these: there are a lot of pictures). I’ve already given links to reviews by Cristina and bartleby showing packup configurations in the Synik 30 with the A30 packing cubes in my earlier post.

          You can also substitute the large packing cube for A30 with two small packing cubes for A30, as Cristina does, if you want to use these in other bags and have more flexibility in configuring your packing among smaller or differently shaped bags. Or, you can stay with the large packing cube if it is better suited to large items. You can also get the Laundry packing cube version in either size if you want a partition that keeps clean and dirty clothes separated. The A30 packing cubes in the video on the Synik 30 product page were not the laundry version. (It’s possible to see this when they take the cubes out of the bag; the laundry variety has two zippers around the side instead of one, so that you can separately access the compartments for clean and dirty clothes.)
