      And the most important question - any idea when we'll be able to preorder it?
      Sorry...we're going to wait for the next sample before we take pictures. The one that we have is the one I've been using for hiking and...I've spilled coffee in it and done all kinds of horrible things to it. But there should be a new sample soon! And pre-order..within three weeks, I'd say!
      Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

        Cool! Glad I picked today of all days to see if there was an update I am hating my temporary hand-me-down bag.

          Now I'm hearing I may have been a little optimistic....there's a really cool feature Tom may be adding to the Synapse that may delay it a little longer.

                I'll check out the Synapse when I am at the Bihn store today but all I have is a suck cell phone camera since I hate cameras. (My mom said if she knew how cross strange I'd turn out she would of named me Moody.) My husband is away until tomorrow otherwise I could of used his digital camera! I'm sure someone else will take the liberty though.

                I think the synapse is the only backpack that could have me changing my mind about backpacks. I find them annoying and confounding. It's either a messenger bag or a too big grandma purse for me and I gave that up a long while back because of shoulder issues. I'm thinking instead of a shop bag a utility bag may be a better choice for me.

                  It's probably too much to hope for, but see whether they have a Synapse mock-up model in indigo. I know I've been saying that I want to order the Synapse in plum, and I'll probably stick with that color, but now that I have an indigo Tri-Star . . . The Synapse is down as the Tom Bihn bag I've been most wanting to order -- more than the Tri-Star I've just received, and definitely for a longer time.

                  P.S. Thanks for returning the subject posts back to the original topic of the thread.

                      Sorry moriond and others

                      I was so enthralled with picking out my cafe bag and side effect and looking over the indigo Tri-Star that I totally forgot about the Synapse and if they even had any on hand. I did not see one on the counter though. I was checking over a utility bag as well and I'll likely get one of those the next time. I also had lovely conversation with Tom and a lady I never did catch the name of but she has a few new lovely goodies as well. I've been sworn to secrecy lest anyone get in a bit of trouble

                      I'm not much for backpacks is likely why I plum forgot! The indigo Tri-Star does seem bright to me but I'm a silver and black kind of girl. (No Raiders jokes please) I did hear the clear yellow clear packing cube lot will likely be the last of its kind though. Only the colour not the cubes

                      It was nice to see the watermelon cafe bag looked like a Now and Later type shade instead of the neon I envisioned online.

                        Twitter says finished Synapse might be next? Yay! How about in four weeks? =D If all goes well I'll be in Seattle late July. It would be awesome if I could buy a Synapse (or at least try one on) while I'm there.

                          Here's to hoping! Tom has a really cool new solution for the back of the bag...

                            The back of the bag? Curiouser and curiouser.
