    And that’s why I’m still wishing for a Synapse 22.

      Thanks, Kelly S! I love the idea of a "butt warmer"!!! I have a gel cushion (though it doesn't heat reflect) and a regular folding stadium seat. My problem is that if I'm traveling with the kids, I have no place to stash a cushion or seat, and we are constantly moving from "camp" to warm up areas and back to eat and off to compete, then back to undress, then back to stadium for awards..... and often these are a 5-10 minute walk apart. I could not carry the seat, and the bottles to water the kids... and whatever else we are bringing along with us. So I had to downgrade to a blanket :(

      But for the football games where I'm mostly in one place.... I might have to upgrade to the warming seat.... thanks for the tip.. I didn't know those existed!

        I have these Kerco folding pads: https://www.ebay.com/i/302533806762?rt=nc . They fold up to nothing, can be placed into a large pocket. I typically keep one in the back pocket of my Luminary, with plenty of room to spare. While its not a "warmer", it does a good job of insulating from the cold despite being quite thin. Its also good for picnic tables after a rain where I want some place dry to sit.
        Getting to the point with too many bags to list them all. Current daily carry is my Black Halcyon Zeitgeist with a Cobalt Cerylon 3DOC as my "purse"/

            It was usually at or below freezing at our football games. Even with wool uniforms and long thermal underwear we were pretty cold. To say nothing of our poor parents that were just sitting in the stands and didn't get up to march or anything.

            The seats we had came with a nifty handle that you could hook around the top loop of the backpack. A carabiner would work too. https://www.amazon.com/NEP-Outdoors-.../dp/B014XWG7QQ

            Are you with the football team or the marching band? And if it's marching band, would you mind terribly letting me know which school/band you're with? I totally miss watching the shows. As you fly into San Jose, you've got to be sort of local to where I am.

              LOL.... those flames on the seat make me feel warm already! Thanks for the link! I'll have to check it out and the one that @sturbridge sent too!

              Yes... we are nearby... and I'm with the band: Amador Valley High School Marching Dons! (Football games are fun.. the football team is there to score points so that the band can play!!) They did OK this year... not their best year, but it was fun!

                @bchaplin, thanks for including this photo. One year since Leonard passed, and I still miss him.

                    I recently found Sriracha singles like that at World Market.
                    I don't think I'll need to carry *quite* that many, but they are definitely going to in the "food module" of my bag.

                      Sorry this is off-topic, but if anyone is in Montreal, through early 2018, there is an exhibit at their Museum of Contemporary Arts on Leonard Cohen. It's visual and interactive, and I found it very engaging. I wouldn't go just for that, but if you are in the area it is well worth seeing.

                      I too was profoundly affected by his music, and some of his songs have seemed particularly relevant lately.

                        I was on the CNET website and saw some TB Bags!

                        Looks like a French Blue DLBC in these pictures. Looks like there is some TB love from CNET's staff! - Though the articles were not about TB bags :(

                        Cheers!

                          Ha! I too was excited to discover Cholula packets.... I take them with me on overnight backpacking and camping trips. Really livens up a plate of rice and beans for dinner.
                          Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

                          Current carry: testing new potential materials in the form of Original Large Shop Bags.

                            Glad to hear you are a cholula fan! One of the few things I think are worth more than their weight in gold.

                              I spent the day at the hospital yesterday because my daughter was having surgery. She’s now home and comfortably resting. I switched all of my things out of my Pop Tote and into my Luminary because I suspected I would need to be hands free as much as possible. I was right, too. I had to carry my daughter’s things and help her maneuver to the wheel chair and into the vehicle.

                              I never cease to be amazed at how much this little bag can tote. I put in my Travel Cubelet, a 16 oz. water bottle, my knitting in the bag (embroidered by a friend), my Hobonichi A6 planner, my iPad, several documents, a large sunglasses case, reading glasses, and two or three Tom Bihn small and mini pouches.

                              While my daughter was in surgery, I managed to knit quite a bit on her sock that I’m hoping to finish in time for Christmas.

                                Love your Luminary, and the embroidery on the knitting bag is precious.
                                Best wishes for a speedy recovery for your daughter.
