    One subtle change has been made to the Synapse since we first introduced it - the lower back panel will be made out of 420 denier nylon instead of 1050d ballistic nylon. The 420d nylon is a finer weave than the 1050d ballistic nylon, and because of that, it will be even gentler on one's clothing. Though lighter-weight than 1050d ballistic nylon, 420d nylon is still an incredibly tough and long-lasting fabric.
    wow! i feel both guilty (for whining) and excited (for benefiting). this is a really great tweak, and i appreciate it a ton. i know it's not "for me" but i'm probably the most annoying whiner so i want to make sure i speak up to say THANK YOU! :kiss kiss:

      Darcy,

      Is there any chance that there will be any surplus Kelly Synapses (Synapsi?) left after fulfilling the pre-orders? I missed the cut-off.

      Thanks, sweetwert

      P.S. My Indigo Tri-star is a triumph of travel engineering!

        Yes, there is a chance - I'll post in this thread if there are any Kelly or Crimson Synapse bags (see the avoidance ) left after we fill backorders. Some customers have changed colors, etc.
        Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

            I just received word from June (our Factory Manager) that the very first Synapse backorders will be shipping next week. The remainder will ship within the next 2-3 weeks.

                I'm so excited!

                Now, if only I didn't live on the other coast . . . I've got to work on my patience.

                  Check out the new close up picture of the Synapse taken by Maverick.

                  Unfair! It is so gorgeous, I want to reach into my monitor and grab the bag.


                  That would make for a broken monitor and no bag.

                    In thinking about the ways I might be able to use my new synapse, I got to wondering. I normally use my osprey pack for long day hikes, but when I travel and i really appreciate being able to use a hydration pack with it. It would be great if I could take something smaller, lighter, more packable (cue synapse). Would the back pocket of the synapse work with a Platypus Hoser (1.0L Reservoir - 34 oz.) hydration bag?

                      Hooray! But what does "very first" mean? Is there an order date cutoff? I ordered on 9/5, the day after pre-order opened up, because I had to obsess about colors for a bit

                        It means...however many bags the factory finishes in the first round before moving on to the next.

                                I am interested in the Synapse in Steel Dyneema/Solar Dyneema for daily and travel usage. Is the bag rigid enough for a 13" MacBook in a Cache, a digital camera and other office "stuff"? I like that it is light weight, but am wondering if it retains shape like cordura. Thanks.
