    Packing the Synapse

    I recently replaced (upgraded) my Rucs Sack to a Synapse. I love the look of the bag, and what I can carry in it in a well organized manner. I typically carry a levenger notebook, eee pc, zune, nintendo ds, and a bunch of organizer pouches. This is basically what I carried in the old bag, but with more pouches. I think about 6 - 8 lbs of gear potentially.

    I remember when I got my first backpack that it took a couple weeks to get a comfy fit, but it has been about a month now with the Synapse and I cannot get a good fit. My shoulders hurt, I can feel whatever I put in the main compartment on my back, and I cannot seem to get the pack to carry perfect.

    Happy to film a video of what I have in the bag, and how I have it packed. Looking for anyone with suggestions of packing the bag right (particularly to eliminate the feeling what is in the bag). Anyone else have comfort issues and care to share what you did to correct them?

    Thanks in advance!
