    As dorayme said, the 22oz LifeFactory bottle will fit in the water bottle pocket of the Synapse. However, how easily it does so depends on how stuffed your Synapse is.

    [QUOTE=celos;26698]I use an 8-inch key strap inside my Medium Cafe Bag to secure a loop-top Klean Kanteen (18 oz. size). I clip both ends of the strap to an O-Ring and thread it through the loop on the cap. Works pretty well to keep the bottle upright. I can even flip the whole bottle outside of the bag, organizer pouch-style, if I'm rooting around inside for something.

    I do sort of the same thing celos does. I have a tall thin thermos I can fit in my medium Cafe bag. I put one clip of a short key strap on each O ring. It holds the thermos in place, more or less. Its loose but keeps it sitting upright. If I tied a knot in the key strap it would hold it a bit better I think.
    Take it easy,

    I put my water bottle & other food-containing objects in a medium stuff sack. It's not perfect, and things move around quite a bit, but it works out for my purposes.

    Thank you for the suggestions. It seriously hadn't occurred to me to use the internal pocket for some reason. It's not a secure fit but if I wedge something in there with the small bottle it stays upright. If I make another TB order I'll get the stuff sack, that would have the added advantage of being waterproof, I guess.

    The non-flap side is big enough to hold a water bottle but it makes it awkward to wear the Imago. I prefer it to be flat on that side.

    Can't you put the bottle in the non-flap side of the Imago? It might be a bit loose but then it would be separated from the main pouch.

    Have you tried the flask style Sigg bottles? We have one for the dogs and it should fit in the smaller pocket outside the main pouch but under the flap.

    Are you referring to one of the two gusseted pockets along the inside front of the Imago? It never occurred to me to try to put my water bottle into one of those. I must try it.

    I am not too sure what the problem is - I can fit a 1L SIGG bottle, or the 22oz LifeFactory bottle inside one of the pouch pockets of the Imago no problem...

    The lack of an outside water bottle pocket on the Imago was one of the main reasons I opted for an ID instead. I'm very rarely without a water bottle, and having to go inside to get it every time is a big of a drag -- that plus the fact that if I've got my computer inside I'm a bit leery of accidents. The bottle doesn't usually leak unless I fail to close it properly, but having the bottle outside the main compartment is a nice safety blanket.

    What size is your bottle? I just put a pint bottle in a small stuff sack. Fits fine. A two-liter bottle of seltzer went in easily but stuck out at the top. Conclusion: Any size water bottle will go into the small sack. For a tall bottle, you might want a medium or large sack.

    The Co-Pilot does indeed have a great pocket for a water bottle, but it isn't a bag I use on a daily basis. I'm looking for a way to secure a bottle inside of my Imago. gmanedit, do you know that the stuff sack fits a water bottle?

    I carry a Sigg flask in the front pocket of my Ristretto, and have never had a problem.
