    Red face Any Synapse 25 owners in Melbourne?

    Hey everyone,
    Are there any Synapse 25 owners in Melbourne, Australia who would be willing to meet up with me? I canít justify spending $360 on a bag without seeing it first, no matter how high quality. Iíd just want to see the bag, maybe fit a couple of things in, and try it on to see how it sits.
    Iím currently in Germany but heading back in a couple of weeks. Let me know if you can help - Iíll buy you a coffee for your trouble!

    I have a S25GE in Auckland if you ever feel crossing the ditch to come and say hi to your fellow Kiwis.

    Iím looking at the 25 in either the purple or blue ballistic nylon - I think it might be my perfect one bag for long term travel. I probably wonít be going away again for another couple of months so Iím not in a hurry to buy it.
    By backup buyer I assume you mean if I buy it and donít like it, youíd be willing to take it off my hands?

    I'm in Newcastle and will be down in Melbourne in March and was planning on using my S25 Guides Edition for that trip, but that might too long to wait. Hopefully someone nearby can help you out.

    No S25 but I do have an S19 and work in Box Hill if that helps at all.

    Greetings Elisa_eh,
    Do you have any spare time in Germany? There might be a few S25 or S19 owners in Germany. If they don't show up here on the forum, the Tom Bihn Crew might, and I'll emphasize might, be able to forward an email request to our forum regulars in Germany.

    It's nice to see another person with the same name. I'm delighted to meet you! elisa from Alaska

    A pleasure to meet you too Elisa! There sure arenít many of us around. Would love to visit your neck of the woods sometime!

    Hello Jonathan, I'm in eastern suburbs Melbourne too. I'm new to the Forum so I'm not sure how I contact you to see your S19, presuming you don't mind.
