    Internal frame

    Does anyone use their internal frame on the Synapse?

    I have one but find it more comfortable to not use....

    Hi @PackMan!

    I prefer carrying my Synapse 19 with the internal frame. But I can see situations where you may prefer to leave the internal frame out -- for example, if Synapse 19 is packed specially full.

    How full and with what are you packing your Synapse 19, if you don't mind my asking?

    I prefer the internal frame in my S19 for EDC...if I have my laptop and packed full, it's easier to not use it. I find that it helps prevent the 'turtle' effect
    I like all the blues and greys...and all the happy citrus colours too!

    What's the turtle effect?

    I carry a hoodie, white T-shirt in a packing cube and a small organizer in the main compartment.

    For several of us, if you pack a Synapse really full, it has a tendency (between the soft back and the shaped bottom) to sort of ball up/bunch up and doesn't sit as well on your back... I think people have other names for it too - it's a topic that comes up...
    Depends on what you carry, how you pack it, whether you want the pack to be flat to your back, etc.

    Even if it isn't very full, the soft back means that carrying anything oddly shape. Or not quite evenly packed can make the bag uncomfortable. The frame sheet makes this problem disappear.
