    Not great. The clips are a bit too close together. The double carabiners are not bad, though; they're longer than the triangular clips so they can splay out to reach the o-rings on the organizer cube better.

    Another good option that I saw in a post somewhere is to thread a handle loop through the rail loops so that the key clip is outside the loops on one end to be clipped to one side of the org cube, and a carabiner is clipped to the handle loop outside the rail loop on the other side and then to the other side of the org cube. I don't think words really do this idea justice; I'll see if I can dig up the thread with the picture. The beauty of this is that you just undo the carabiner for the handle loop and pull the handle loop through, and the org cube is free and clear in about one second flat.

        Not too out-there, and I'm sure not original, but for quite some time I've been using an ultraviolet 3D organizer cube with a 16" ultraviolet keystrap as my purse. It's just the right size to carry by hand, over the arm, or tucked up under the arm with the strap over the shoulder.
        Does it come in purple?

          This is a twist on some ideas I found on the forum: many have attached pouches in a Synapse 25. The idea using 1" Triangle Metal Hook was from Scribe I think. Ceepee added to that in cutting in the outer bar of the 1" Triangle Metal Hook to slide it into the web-loop of the Synapse Rail-System. When I was playing around with the Upper Modular Pocket from the Smart Alec I found, that the shape of it would be ideal for the S25.
          So I took an other thingy from the part-list, but I can not recall which one this was because there are a few sounding nearly similar. Than I cut it like Ceepee suggested and slit one in each rail-loop an the front panel of my S25. Now I can attach and detach the Upper Modular Pocket as I pleas. I find this works best since I have the Freudian Slip for the S25 before that the Backpack tended to sack if I had too much weight in that Upper Modular Pocket.

          There is something in the Part-list that has two of these clips with a bit of webbing in the middle. This would work without having to cut the part, but for my taste the UMP comes down too far that way.

          Ilkyway

          PS: By the way: you do not need that extra clip from the Parts when you did not cut off the attachment-clips from your UMP first (which is most like the case I think). I just did that so that I could use that UMP as a purse too. Now I can just detach it, clip on a Shoulder-strap and have a purse to go. But that idea is linked somewhere above already.

            Not a hack as such, more an observation. The blurb for the Night Flight Travel Duffle states:
            "Use two (packing cubes) to fill the main compartment......two cubes will stack best if they are turned 90 degrees to each other".
            However, if you stand them on end, as in the end compartments, you can actually fit 3. Apart from making the open-topped pockets a little tighter to access, the end compartments are not encroached upon (assuming you don't stuff the packing cubes to bursting that is ).

              I haven't done this, but I read someone else's tip for the Synapse:

              Put your portable charger at the bottom of the middle water bottle pocket, and put your phone in a side pocket. Run a short cable from the charger to the phone via the small hole at the bottom of the water bottle pocket. It'll allow you to charge up your phone in your bag, while keeping things neatly in place.

                  Genius! But how do you use the Double Carabiner; is that to attach to an o-ring inside a larger bag?

                    Exactly! The YSS may have the snaphook but they are too fat... this option is much thinner and therefore better to handle the small items.

                      I have an upcoming airplane trip. At my destination, I'll be using my small shop bag most of all, but I hate to use that as my personal item because its just so open. I was going to bring my PU instead, just because it zips up, but it'll be overkill for the rest of the trip and I wouldn't be using it. Seems silly to bring 2 bags, particular since I'm also bringing a 3rd bag (small sling bag) that I'll be using as my purse at my destination.

                      So my bag hack is this: using two #1 Nite-Ize carabiners. Hook one end of the carabiner to the O-ring and the other end to the strap on the opposite side. Its not secure, secure, but I'll have everything important tethered inside anyways. It just keeps the bag from flopping open and things casually falling out without my noticing. I'm hoping anyways.

                      Getting to the point with too many bags to list them all. Current daily carry is a PickUp Truck and Everyday Cubelet. Love all my shop bags, ghost whales, cubelets. Hoping to travel again soon to use my A30 and co-pilot.

                            If you ever feel like turning your MCB into a backpack for some reason, you can do it with Gate Keeper clips.

                              Ms. Ferret you might have just revolutionized the way I use the Cafe Bags. On long walks sometimes my shoulders get sore and this will help tremendously with that.
