    Yes-- this is one of the minor forum improvements we plan to make this week. The overall design and function of the forums won't likely be completed for several months, but small stuff like that can be fixed pretty quickly.

    Saw this, and immediately thought of all the folks who asked you to bring back the Dyneema Synapse who will now be happy. (On another note: Darcy, is there a way to make the fact that there are links more obvious in the new forum format? I've been adding the underline control, so people will know I've put links into my posts.)

    HI camry,
    Katy put up some pictures for me. They are of my Synapse in ultraviolet next to my Synapse in the plum color. They are located in the thread titled Ultraviolet Syanpse arrival dated 3.1.11. I just noticed I spelled Synapse wrong in that post. I'd attach a link but I have no idea how to pull that off. Hope you like the photos.
    Happy travels.,
    Moose

    We just added the Synapse in Iberian/Steel Dyneema and Steel/Solar Dyneema as available for pre-order.

    thanks moriond, this is good to know. I had tried to scour the forum (also from ipad) before I originally posted and gave up after finding this thread.
    off to read your linked post.

    Hi,

    I'm thinking one may need to come and live with me soon.
    Brief answer is that, from memory, the weight savings is only about 6 oz for the Dyneema/Dyneema version. I tried to post a longer answer, with links to previous information, but this got lost when I tried to preview my answer (and was asked to sign in again -- this was from my iPad). The reason that you don't gain more of a weight savings is that both Synapse versions in Cordura and Dyneema share the same reinforced padded section that sits against your back. This is part of what makes the Synapse an extremely comfortable bag to carry, but it means that the all Dyneema version is not substantially lighter or more foldable.

    And here's a picture posted by notmensa of the Dyneema Synapse with its contents.

    hi dorayme,

    the synapse is a very cool backpack. it is available with a 1000d cordura fabric on the exterior and the ripstop dyneema fabric on the interior, and is also originally available with the ripstop dyneema fabric on both the exterior and interior - ultraviolet on the outside and steel on the inside.
