    How does selection for this work? I ordered ablue/steel parapack S30 in the first phase, but didn't get a notification. ��
    Hi @mike42, it's a random selection by Countron, the TB computer system... for whatever bags are available from the Pre-Production Batch, it randomly chooses a matching number of folks who ordered that colour combo.

    Hi all!

    I've been bitten by the Tom Bihn bug and I have a DLBP and MCB with FS (did i get the acronyms right?) in black Halycon on the way to the Philippines (shipping cost was murderous). I'm now very interested in getting a Synik 22 to replace my 22-liter EDC backpack which I use as my work/gym bag. So can anyone confirm if the Synik 22 can fit a change of clothes, towel and a pair of size 10 gym shoes along with a laptop and the usual EDC gear (phone, pens, powerbank etc)?

    Thanks!

    welcome!

    you did right on acronyms

    check the product page and reviews on forum to see if your laptop and content will fit neatly (as you want it to be organized),

    following the size from your current 22liter bag to Synik22, my guess it will manage it all (unless you laptop is huge, so check the size)
    because a N-liter TB bag tends to be bigger than a N-liter other brand bag, TB is rigorous on measure so it is true 22L (when casually the capacity of any bag is estimated throught the whole size)
    just a Bihnion here

    And the wonderful front pockets will hold all those EDC bits; phone, pens, power bank, etc, leaving the main compartment open for the more bulky clothes and shoes.

    Thanks everyone. It's a shame that they're not making a 25L version, that would have been the perfect bag for me.

    I’m guessing you meant a 25L with a separate computer section. The S25 is 25L but without a separate compartment.
    Bags - S25 (Mars Red balistic/Northwest sky/halcyon), S19 (Deep blue balistic/Iberian/halcyon). S22 (Aubergine)SCB (Nordic)
    Accessories - including Nik's #4 wallets, ghost whales, Q-kits, pouches, stuff sacks, travel trays.

    For what it's worth, a hypothetical "SN26" at roughly 18" tall would appeal to me; at that height, it would reliably fit under most airplane seats and its laptop compartment would be more likely to fit arbitrary 13-14" computers, while still not being "huge" for EDC.

    If my work laptop had fit in the SN22, I would have been sorely tempted to make it my combined EDC, default personal item, and day pack.

    Yup, a Synik 25 would have been perfect. I was thinking of just getting a Synapse 25 but I would need to buy an internal frame and a cache to have roughly the same features as the Synik without the clamshell design and other new features which is a bummer. I also thought about Synik 30 but it is way too big for me as an edc.

    I agree, that would be great!

    Would a Synik 22 packed moderately full fit into Ryanair personal item sizer? It's 40x20x25 cm, while the Synik dimensions stated on the page are 49x24x29 cm.
    edit: I think there's a mistake in the Synik page: it states that the height is 16", that's 40.5 cm, but then it converts that to 49 cm.

    The Synik 22 is the same size as the Synapse 19 *except* for the front to back depth.

    Both are 16" tall x 11.4" wide


    The same relationship holds true for the larger ones... Synik 30 is the same as Synapse 25 except for depth.

    thank you! Then they should correct the mistake on the website, it could be a make or break specific for european customers

    I sent an email to the fine folks in Customer Service, so they'll get it updated. Please note that today is a holiday in the US, so I would expect it to be a couple of days.
