Hello everyone, I have a Synik 30 and am planning to get either Tri-Star cubes or the upcoming Synik 30 cubes (formerly Western Flyer packing cubes) to go in the Synik. Does anyone have the Synik 30, Tri-Star cubes and Western Flyer cubes and can help answer my questions?

1. How well do the Tri-Star cubes fit into the Synik 30 compared to the Western Flyer cubes? In particular, I see that the Tri-Star cubes are longer, narrower and flatter. Does the extra length interfere with zipping up the bag?

2. The front panel of my Synik 30 is usually fully packed. The Western Flyer cubes work out to a larger capacity, but they're also a bit thicker than the Tri-Star cubes. How well do two fully-packed large Western Flyer cubes fit into a Synik 30 with a fully-filled front panel and a laptop in the laptop pocket?

I'm considering picking up a Tri-Star at some point, and it would be great if I could use the Tri-Star cubes for both bags instead of having two sets of packing cubes – but it's more important to me that the packing cubes fit well inside the bag.
