    Synapse 25 weight after having an S19


    I Recently upgraded from a synapse 19 to 25. I’ve already sold my 19 so I can’t really judge with that.

    I love the extra space. And I also bought a dlbp which feels like nothing.

    I’ve been using the dlbp for a week now and switched to the 25. I noticed a big increase in weight today. I was carrying a bit more but not drastically.
    1. Do you get used to this?
    2. Does the internal frame help? Will it just make it heavier?
    3. Did anyone who upgraded from a s19 to 25 feel this? Did you get used to it?

    I’m a 36 year old woman, and 5 7 and about 150 lbs, so I’m not petite.


    Just a quick update: I used the sternum strap and it made a massive difference. Why didn’t I do this with the S19? I may have taken it off on the first day I had it.

    Still would be good to hear some thoughts.
