    How has the synapse evolved?

    Hi there,

    This is just out of pure curiosity and interest. Have there been updates to the Synapse 19? What are they (I don't mean colours).

    I bought mine around July 2014 - doubt there's been design changes since then. Or has the bag generally been the same since it released.

    Thanks!

    Not sure when it was but the water guard zippers were sewn in differently so that the teeth show on the outside and metal zipper pulls are on them.

      Thanks steeps - that's interesting, so that's the only update?

      Good to know!

        I think the distance between straps has changed since then as well.

          Hi @TorontoSS!

          The Synapse 19 was updated in May, 2013 (so, before you bought yours) to incorporate the design elements that were introduced with the Synapse 25, as mentioned in this blog post.

          The updates included: webbing loops for Cache with Rails system, the addition of piping for the bottom pocket, a webbing loop below the bottom pocket for mounting the Guardian Light, and additional O-rings!

              Thanks Maverick. I just picked up a used S19 that the seller indicates was purchased in 2014 so it should be the updated version.
