      I have a Q-kit somewhere around the house so I have an idea, but it will be fun to see it on a whole bag! Plus I love that it's the 1050 - ha s a different sheen from the 525/210 I think. ;)

      (Also I have a feeling that the orange will keep it safe from other family members absconding with it, haha! They prefer my blue/black/green TB gear.)

        Synik 30 Guide Edition

        First time buyer, sure won’t be the last. Bought a Synik 30 Guide Edition in Ursa/Coyote. Absolutely stunning. I’m not going anywhere these days so haven’t loaded it up. But I’ve already figured out what I plan on loading it with.

        I came from an Aer Travel Pack 2. I love this bag that much more.

              It may depend on how you're viewing the site (I don't use Tapatalk for instance), but on my browser, in the bar above the text entry box, third from the right, is an icon that is a tree inside a square... click that 'insert image' icon and follow the steps

              Note, you need to keep the image size pretty small for it to load (under 1MB I think, but can't remember)...so if you get an error message saying 'upload failed' it's probably because your file is too large
              I like all the blues and greys...and all the happy citrus colours too! My search unicorn is the Sapphire Dyneema original Small Shop Bag...

                Deep Blue L12 is here — joining another unicorn (Aubergine Sprout) for a quick photo. So glad I ordered as they turned out to be similar in size and I needed a second kids backpack.

                  The face masks I ordered arrived today. They are perfect and will help to keep us safe. Thank you.

                        My TB bags haven’t gone anywhere in months due to the pandemic, but my new Mini Yeoman Duffel did make the trip from my guest room to the living room (on its way to the trunk of my car, while holding some spare clothes and emergency supplies). lol

                        Love the size of the Mini YD: it is like an even-more-minimalistic version of my favorite little travel bag, the Night Flight Travel Duffel; without the internal organization, lining, etc., though, it is lighter and easier to store when empty. I dig its simplicity!

                          My “unicorn” bag came in the mail this morning: a Coyote 525 Side Kick.

                          The SK is the first bag I bought from Tom Bihn, the one I use most often, and the one I always wished they would make in Coyote, but never did for some reason - that is, until recently.

                          For me, the 525 material has been a game changer - more self-supporting than Halcyon but soft enough to conform to your body (the 1050 Ballistic sometimes sat like a pizza box on my hip).

                          Stay tuned, because this one’s coming along for our 4th of July trip to the Chicago Botanic Garden tomorrow.

                            Very nice! My SideKick constellation 525 ballistic/solaris is on its way; delivery predicted is Monday if not sooner. My first SideKick and I'm eager to see what it can do.

                              My new SideKick (Constellation 525//Solaris) arrived today, earlier than expected. I'm delighted to report that my iPad Air, in a Speck folio type case no less, fits into the center portion of the SK (see pictures in next post). It looks tight but it isn't. The zippers close over the corners of the iPad easily.

                              Next, I'll see what happens if I load the SK with my EDC stuff, which will include using some of the rings inside the SK.

                              The color combination is great; I'm very happy with it, and the 525 ballistic is Goldilocks: stiff but not too stiff, bordering on slightly soft.

                              Pictures compare size of SideKick to my Medium Cafe Bag.
