    Synik 30...Impressed!

    Just got the Synik 30 to haul a travel tripod, Sony camera, two lenses, three flashes, batteries, accessories, MacBook, ad iPad. I have tried way too many camera bags and backpacks and decided to use the remaining dollars in my gear budget to end this search. My boss will probably be glad too. (:

    I personally own and have extensive travel with the Synapse 25, and will continue to use it.

    Props to the TB crew for the incremental design improvements to the straps, back panel, laptop compartment, handle, frame sheet, and clam shell opening. Iím excited to have this bag to haul all my camera gear and look forward to the challenge of trying to lay things out for efficient access.

    Looks like TB has another winner in this backpack too!

    Show us how you organize the bag when you’ve laid everything out. I plan on using my Synik 22 as a camera bag, but haven’t had the chance to go anywhere to test it out.

    I gave this a few days thought then grabbed our daughters hot glue gun and some cardboard to make DIY dividers. Iím not a big fan of the thick velcrow style. This takes up minimal space and keeps everything from just balling up on the bottom.

    Oh dang. Pretty smart. Has this held up pretty good?

    Although it has held up just fine, I ordered something similar for $52 that is about the same size and offers flexible options - like being able to adjust for a drone shoot.

    It will be here Tuesday so I’ll post an update.

    A few different setups...one with two speed lights + controller and another with a backup point and shoot plus 360 camera.

    So far this looks to be superior to the cardboard and worth the $52. Fit is perfect in the Synik or Synapse 25.
