    Just acquired a black/steel synapse 25, black/black/steel smart Alec, upper pocket for the SA, two 3d clear organizers and a double organizer! My husband and I looooove our choices.

    Too bad the s25 had a missing waist strap

    ...I just placed a second order for more goods for us and my mother in law...I think that I am developing a problem

        I'm still not sure on the size, though, so... I may have ordered a black dyneema / UV MCB last night...
        And now that one is out for delivery!! My last order brought me my very first pocket pouch, and I think it's just wonderful, so I decided to order a few more. Since I already successfully secured an aubergine/ultraviolet one, I decided to go wild and not be super specific in the colors. I asked for, "Something girly." So now on top of regular TBAS, there's curiosity for what colors I get, and seeing how the crew interprets the idea of "girly."

        Of course, I'm working late tonight.

        But I'll post pictures when I get home!
        Does it come in purple?

          Yeah ! My a30 arrived! Will post pix and details later.

            Ordered several items headlined by the Synapse 19. The steel RFID passport holder is on backorder for a month so my wait will be longer, but that color is worth it.

              Pictures with and without flash.

              I believe the colors are, from left to right:
              * Aubergine/Ultraviolet (the one I got last week)
              * Kiwi/Ultraviolet
              * Forest/Wasabi
              * Navy/Solar
              * Aubergine/Iberian

              Love 'em! Pictures never really do them justice, but I'm noticing that especially with the kiwi. It's really beautiful in person, and kinda blah in my picture. (Blame to the photography "skills", not to the fabric!)
              Does it come in purple?

                Woah, there's something about that Aubergine/Iberian combo that's simply begging to be shown off. A Side Effect to start, maybe, and prove the concept

                  Many people complain about these two colors together. I'm not one of them.

                    Kiwi never turns out right in photos

                    Re Aubergine/Iberian-- what a pleasant surprise that they work together! So much so that I asked for one in my latest order D:

                        they are beautiful, but will you use them for? I have held off ordering because not sure if I would actually use it.

                          I have 3 of these babies. I use 2 for key-cards. I have gate-controlled access to my townhouse, and also to our community pool. Pocket pouches work great for this function because you can attach them quickly to anything, such as keyring, TB wrist strap, pool bag (aka Shop Bag), etc. The third one (which was actually my first one) is for business cards. I have it in the front pocket of my work bag (aka Imago).

                            I don't have a use for one either, but I threw one into my basket when I saw Aubergine/Iberian because PRETTYYYYY.

                              I am rethinking my packing strategy, and saw the pretty pictures of the pocket pouches above. I started with a couple of those, then added some travel stuff sacks so that I can sort by color in addition to size. That's how it starts....

                                @Hawaii I use the Pocket Pouch to store short travel cables that I can easily access because via the opening. you can see this described, along with other suggestionsm in the Bike mutli-tool in Tom Bihn Pocket Pouch thread. As @kkintea commented, the Pocket Pouches can also be used for access key cards (could be for a hotel room, when you're traveling, or an institution that you're visiting).

                                ETA: I may as well also give the link to the Travel Cables thread where @dwright asked for recommendations about the specific cables used in my earlier Pocket Pouch post.
