    Synapse 25 True Volume

    How is the volume measured? What is the method to come to 25L?

    In looking at the dimensions, I see that competitor bags of around the same HWD have more around 30L. I assume this may be due to the amount of material used on the inside of the bag for dividing it up into each compartment.

    Synapse 25 25L 20 x 13.4 x 9.1

    vs...
    Timbuk2 Uptown 30L 19.5 x 11.6 x 6.50
    Tortuga Outbreaker 35L 20.3 x 12.9 x 8.2

    Volume is measured by stuffing the bag with plastic balls and then measuring the volume/weight of the balls. There's some discussion of the method here: https://forums.tombihn.com/general-b...ost154051.html
