I really do like the side loading laptop slot and it fits my laptop which is slightly larger than a Macbook Pro 16 just fine. The front/side pockets being enlarged really makes a difference too. The clam shell is great to since it has a side access slot. I typically don't like clam shells, because I've had one open up and my laptop fall out once. No issue with side loading.
    Would you be able to post a picture of the Ursa GE Synik please. I got the black.

    Great that you really like the GE version of the SN30! Ursa is a great colour, I just received my Monster Truck in Ursa and a SN22 GE in Wilderness.

    With regards to the central & side pockets on the pack, my understand is that the change made a few months ago is consistent across the Synapse 19 & Synik 22, the Synapse 25 & Synik 30, and the Guide's Editions for all the most recent production. That is, the front side pockets borrow room from the center water bottle pocket.
    I like all the blues and greys...and all the happy citrus colours too! My search unicorn is the Sapphire Dyneema original Small Shop Bag...

    Here you go. Its on a chocolate brown leather chair so you can compare. Its an odd color. Not really brown or gray, but more gray.

    That Ursa looks marvelous! (They all do, but Ursa is drawing my attention more Smilie) I think the warmth of the brown works really well with the coyote trim, but it still has that neutral, gray-toned reserve.

    My Synik 22 arrived yesterday! Very spiffy (I got the black, after hours of comparing with Nebulous Gray and Aubergine). I especially love how the coyote trim on the bottom pocket cleverly changes the visual proportions of that area. It's a great size for me at <5' - the bag sits *above* my sacrum which was a problem with the L15 (too long for my torso --> returned). My 2017-model Macbook juuuust fits in the laptop compartment, though I can't fit it in via the side zip. I can't put it in a sleeve either but that's not a drawback, I wanted to ditch the extra weight anyway. It does make it trickier to pull the smooth laptop out of the pocket. I may throw a big ribbon in there, to help me lift it up from the bottom.

    Now to just end this pandemic, so that I can take the SN22 on a trip!! Right now my Maker's Bag and Trucks are seeing the most use, to carry things up and down the stairs. Big Grin

    Hi @haraya ,

    Glad you like your new Black Guide’s Edition Synik 22. Take a look at @maverick ’s video unboxing of his Black GE Synik 30 (and comparison with his Black Synik 30) if you want to see the larger version of your Synik on display.

    I totally agree. I wish the GE's were a regular feature. I missed the chance during the preorder and am kicking myself.
    Funny you should mention that a clam shell bag opened up on you once. This is the ONE feature of the Synik that really prevents me from purchasing it. I know they have beefy zippers, and in all honesty, I'm sure they would never open up. But the fact that there is a possibility really worries me. That's why I think I'm going to go with the Synapse 25. I'm still torn though.
