    Brain bag questions

    Just a few questions. I'm thinking about a gift for someone, but I want to make sure it's a good fit.

    1. It's for someone going on a whirlwind trip involving Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, and the Australian Outback. Any reason it would be a bad fit for that?
    2. Are the zippers aquaguard?
    3. Is there a rainfly for it anyone could recommend? It's Asia, so...
    4. Can anyone discuss how padded the hip strap is? I think that's likely to be a priority.
    5. Thoughts on whether the back area gets sweaty?


    Thanks!

    Iím a fan of the BB, especially if you want a bag that has a really big capacity, but can also shrink down smaller as needed. The zippers arenít aquaguard, but they there is a material flap that covers the zipper to keep water out. The hip strap that comes with the bag has no padding at all. There may be a padded one you can buy extra, but I donít have it so I canít comment. There is mesh padding on the back to help with ventilation, but I find that my back will get sweaty depending on load/duration/temperature. Iíve had other backpacks that have better channeling in the padding that improve ventilation.

    @bouncing, I don't remember--do you have a Synapse? And if you do, do you have the optional padded hip belt for it? The padding is the same on the Brain Bag optional padded hip belt.
