      A "large" Side Kick would be nice. I keep wavering on buying one because I worry it'd be just a little too small. Between 3 and 8 L I don't think there's anything, is there?

      Bring back the LCB!

        FWIW, I use a Nordic Daylight Briefcase (8L) like a large Side Kick... it's horizontal versus the vertical LCB though, so depends on what you prefer.

          Yes, yes, yes to:
          an XL Yeoman Duffle, as organicfarmer suggested, sized to max airline dimensions 62 inch L+W+H
          cafe bags that zip closed, as melminimalist suggested
          a slightly larger SideKick, as suggested by KAB

            Synapse 25 (or any TB bag) with integrated laptop storage.

            Synapse 25 with a full clamshell zip! It would make the bag SO MUCH EASIER to pack and it doesn't seem like they'd have to modify the design at all.

              I far prefer bags with flaps, but I would LOVE a cafe bag that zipped closed inside AND had a flap.

                I wonder if the new Packing Cube Shoulder Bag is going to fill this niche?

                  It would if they put more pockets in it..... A girl can hope, right?

                      A 32-35L Synapse or an updated Brain Bag with:

                      1. Frame sheet/stiffener.
                      2. Front lash straps removed.
                      3. Two side water bottle pockets added.
                      4. Interior mesh pockets in the one or both of the main compartments.

                        I say it every year: moar cheerful exterior colors pretty please!

                        I'm looking forward to the newer fabrics making their way into accessory pouches like OPs, 3DOC's, YSS, and Q Kits. I like having a wide variety of colors to differentiate pouches from each other.

                            Dedicated laptop bag:
                            * Smaller BB or S25-sized
                            * Stands-upright when left on the floor
                            * Clamshell opening (especially if it's a small BB)
                            * Not as wide as the BB, maybe a little taller
                            * Laptop compartment rather than Cache

                            Making a BB with just one compartment would be super cool, especially if it opened clamshell for ease of packing. And/or, if it had a pocket for internal organization (which is safer) such as a mesh pocket high-up, to keep stuff out of the Crush zone.

                            If it's more S25-inspired, then a little less outside storage, a stiffer frame, and a more 'square' figure to have less wasted space vs. the ovoid shape of the S25.

                            An Aeronaut 36L, basically a 30L with some added tech-compartmentalization!

                              A laptop bag that is slightly cushier than the Daylight Briefcase (which I use with a Cache)...essentially a smaller Cadet as used to be offered.

                                Yes please!! I really like my cafe bag, but don't use often because pickpockets are rampant here.
                                A ziptop cafe bag would be a-ma-zing! I don't care one way or the other about the flap.
