    Talking Who has the most Synapses?

    I'm pretty new to the TB scene and just ordered a second Synapse. Now I have one in each size. I find it hard, though, not to keep buying more as I want one in almost every color! I can see this becoming an addiction :0 So it makes me wonder who has the largest backpack collection in here? Pictures?

    Confused

    No Synapses, but I have three Luminaries. I started with the Alphaviolet, which is a really fun color (and I managed to get one with a Dawn interior). Then, a Deep Blue, for something a little more low-key (and I was actually able to find one that had Canyon inside, rather than the dreaded Grass). Finally, a Black/Cloud Luminary, because I figured that I'd want one in black.

    All predate the design change with the larger pockets. The updated ones might be fine, but since the original fit so well, and 2 of 3 were offered in color combos that were clearly going away, I grabbed them while they were available.

    I have one Synapse 25 (Nordic/Solar) which is terrific, but I "collect" Imagos. Likely more than a lifetime supply at this point considering I'm no spring chicken.

    Who has the most Synapses?

    Iíve not owned them all together at the same time as I keep changing colours. Buy and trade/sell. But my count is

    S25 - 6
    S19 - 3

    I did however contribute to a TB blog post where I talked about the 2 S25s I owned at the time.

    I've got 5.

    Synapse 25 in Nordic/Solar (I use this when traveling if a longer trip)
    Synapse 25 in Black/UV (I use this as a bug-out bag)
    Synapse 19 in Nordic/Solar (I use this for traveling if a shorter trip)
    Synapse 19 in Nordic/Steel (I don't need this one but I can't let it go for some reason)
    Synapse 19 in Black/UV (I think I use this one the most, and it was the first one I bought - used mostly as an urban purse, until the larger Luminary comes out).

    The Synapse is just a really elegant design. Even when I'm feeling a bit bored of using the same bag, I continually come back to the Synapse. And there is nothing like it when traveling.

    I might have to go back to my Black/UV one right now since I've spent the last hour looking for my Luminary and can't find that darn thing anywhere. What the heck? My daughter swears she didn't steal it.....I need another brownie to fortify me for the continued search....

    So much Nordic Dyneema I don't even know what to do with myself anymore. They will bury me in it. "Where's Mom's urn? WHERE DID YOU GUYS PUT THE SYNAPSE 19 WITH MOM'S ASHES?"

    I love this thread and found it fascinating that so many of you want multiple Synapses because you love the colors. I must be an oddball. Big Grin I've wanted a Synapse for a really long time, but the color choices is the reason I've waited. I finally decided to give up on my desires and purchase an Olive/Island this week, and the Island interior still has me pausing before I hit the buy button. I know I'm going to cringe at that color every time I open my bag, but my only other option is to wait for the 1970s and earth tones to come back into style. I suppose Island, it is, but as soon as TB calms things down, you may see my Synapse in the bag swap. Smilie
