    Now this is another possibility I hadn't even considered, a bag in a bag. Maybe I could get the Synapse and also stuff either a medium or small Cafe bag in it for carrying the smaller stuff around town, as I am not as likely to carry so much in town as out hiking and exploring the countryside. Practical and stylish! Hmmm....
    Don't knock it! This is a very typical get-up for me:

    Western Flyer
    ... Main compartment: Packing Cube Backpack (for clothing)
    ... Front half-sized compartment: Packing Cube Shoulder Bag (various knickknacks)
    ... Other half-sized compartment: Side Effect for make-up, non-liquid toiletries (with an empty Ziploc baggie folded in), and a 3D clear organizer pouch (3-1-1 kit)

    With this get-up, I can then:

    - Use the Packing Cube Backpack at my destination if I need a bigger bag during the day than a purse
    - Use the Packing Cube Shoulder Bag as my main day bag/day purse
    - Use the Side Effect as a clutch or extra-light mini-purse if I don't have a lot to carry.
