    I got my black Halcyon Synik in, and it is not as big and scary as I feared. It definitely has a place in my collection. I still feel like there is room for perfection in between the 2 sizes. 2 inches taller than the SN22, and 1 inch wider with a less pronounced chin and no added depth. Then you have an EDC bag that accommodates more body sizes and fits all laptop sizes. I'll be in the market for a ballistic GE S25 as soon as my bank account recovers.

      If the bag being measured were shaped like a rectangular block, then the height, width, and depth in the quoted dimensions would be a reasonable approximation of the dimensions. Because these bags are not rectangular blocks (and the S26 is less blocky in shape than the Synik 30), the dimensions are going to seem overly large. There is a visual image included in @Darcy's post, that shows how the quoted dimensions would apply to measuring a Volkswagon beetle vs an SUV -- basically, for anything shaped more closely to a rectangular cube, the dimensions will appear to be a more accurate.

      In summary, your asking for impressions of space usage from owners of the Synapse 25 and Synik 30 is a good way to get your answer.

      Wow - extremely helpful moriond - thank you! Reading Darcy's post plus yours really clarified things for me. It didn't occur to me that subtle differences in shape could allow two bags with very similar "dimensions" to be 5L different in capacity. Of course, now I again find myself wanting to look at an S25 next to an S30 for myself!

        he doesn't really get into the capacity, but I stared at this video for a long time. Mostly about the materials though. Those were my two top choice materials.
