    That may have been mentioned, but I didn't remember it. Great idea! Thanks!

An o-ring or a few along the top would allow affixing of small organizer pouches. A zipped section for papers, like some of the other FS's have, would also be useful.

    I would quickly buy a 525 Burnt Orange PU if it were available! I really like my Original Halcyon/Wasabi one, and I'd enjoy having one in Burnt Orange but I don't think I want it in 1050 Ballistic.

    Or maybe not so quickly, because I'd have to debate whether to get Burnt Orange or Aubergine...

    I suppose I'll throw this idea out again: a hybrid Synapse 25-ish bag where the front can detach somehow from the main large compartment. Use case would be for travel as I currently use my S25 with packing cubes and when I get to my destination I just take the cubes out and explore with the rest of the bag largely packed how it was when I got on the plane with all my everyday carry essentials. However, this leaves the main compartment largely empty, which speaks to how wonderful the S25 organization system is! But everything sitting away from my back and having this cavernous empty main compartment is always weird. I always end up shifting stuff from the bottom pocket into the main compartment, which then leaves the bottom pocket empty and weird. In my mind, if I could just detach the front and have it deploy some straps or to become a smaller everyday carry backpack I'd have the ultimate onebag travel bag

    Yes, I had looked at the Pilot.
    * It's only 12.5L capacity versus a widened DLBC of 17L capacity expected (for reference that difference is 1/4 the size of A45 main compartment capacity)
    * The difference of having extra 5 liter main compartment could hold a stack of 750 pages of printer paper
    * Water bottle and front pockets appear 3D so they subtract from the main compartment capacity and openness
    * The DLBC capacity is 86% of its exterior dimensions surpassing the Pilot, Yeoman mini, and Stowaway (at a low 68%)

    Why I offered the wish: It could be simple addition, be a personal size item with 17L capacity weighing less than 1 lb., have an efficient capacity/external volume ratio, and possess a large, flexible main compartment.

    My personal use would extend to use as a portable filing cabinet. I have a stack of past 12 month paper receipts and records that I have and carry before scanning and filing. (Oh the joys of organic certification requirements). Just this last week I had a plastic file carrier that got brittle over time and cracked while being moved. A wide DLBC would solve my problem of poor plastic products, have a nice carry of files between field, barn, and house, and be sized as a flexible personal size item. Yes, getting another DLBC is my possibility and then having someone sew the 2 DLBC together back-to-back. I just thought the daylight/yeoman series could use a personal size item that I have multiple uses for based on the proven DLBC.
    I had also been wishing for a deeper or wider DLBC for many years. Even before my son was bornt, I think. And now, he is almost 2 years old.

    Have I lose hope? Somewhat.
    At the same time, I have been downsizing my contents but it is still not able to fit in my EDC Water Bottle.

    I currently owned 3 DLBCs. I wonder whether I want to take up another Burnt Orange DLBC which has become available. Nonetheless, I will be also receiving a Maker Bag soon for the first time. Looking forward to try it out and compare with my all time favorite DLBC Work EDC.

    Correction: My son is actually almost 2 years old. Typo error. Lol. As well as, some spelling mistake.

    As I'm looking at the luminary 15 pre order...

    The ability to customize color combos on a pre-order.... It may just be impossible to do this without brain freeze, but I'd often love an outside/inside color combo that isn't available, like aubergine/Dawn... and it seems like, on a bag that's being made for you (such as a pre order), it might possibly be doable? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Wouldn't it be great to have a side-access backpack? It is the size and shape of a backpack with dedicated backpack straps but to access the main compartment, you unzip in a U-shape along the length of one side. This would allow easy access to a variety of smaller items, instead of doing the supermarket-shelf stacking necessary to pack small items in most backpacks.

    To prevent contents from shifting, there could be zippered dividers, like in the PU or Luminary.

    Just a thought!

    Ever since @moriond mentioned how useful the mini Yeoman packing cubes are as lunch bags and stashable shopping bags, I've been looking for one. And I finally found a violet one!

    Here it is holding the medicines and creams I cart around the house when my kids are home sick.


    The handles make a huge difference and allow this packing cube to have another life outside of my closet, in between trips. It's easier to use than a stuff sack and more flexible than a Spiff Kit or FAK. I love it!

    Thanks moriond, for the great tip.

    PS-I also wish for violet Aether to stick around.
    Wow, I've never seen that one before - that is brilliant! *Goes and adds another thing to my mental bag search.*

    Black halcyon bags with NWS interiors. I have a black halcyon Pilot with NWS interior and it's my favorite bag. I would love to have a matching A30 and possibly MCB.

    FWIW, the idea of a maxi-DLBC seems like an oxymoron IMO

    Empire builder would absolutely fit under an airline seat. I have never been unable to get my BB under a plane seat and it's considerably bigger than the EB.
