    I am loving the grey interiors! I have them on a few other bags as well, and they are light enough to see everything and neutral enough not to clash. I brighten them up with stuff sacks and various organizer pouches, usually in UltraViolet and Solar/Solaris. The grey interiors are also light enough...

  • Ah, G42, that link is very helpful and I missed the last time you posted it. I have a short torso even for my “petite” height, which is why the bags with the shorter heights fit me better....

  • I’m pretty much exactly five feet tall, and the Paradigm and Synapse 19 fit best. (I haven’t tried the Paragon or the Syniks.) I was pretty “meh” about the Luminary, I sold my 15 because it fit but the tall, narrow shape just never worked for what I carry. The Synapse 25 absolutely does not...

    Same. My order was extremely simple, just one Little Swift for my mom and one for me. Plus living so close to the factory shipping ends up being pretty much overnight. I love my LS, and can't wait to gift Mom's to her for Mother's Day....

    I mostly shoot in suburban areas, generally under 2 hours of actual walking, so the messenger bag isn’t great but it’s not as much of a problem as it would be on actual hikes.

    The problem I have with backpacks is the height, I can put an insert in the bottom but then there is so much...

    I would be curious how you load the Smart Alec for a camera. I’ve always had a hard time working out of backpacks when shooting, because they are so awkward to access. Every time I load up my Synapse I always end up going back to a messenger-style bag instead, even though it doesn’t carry as comfortably....

    Oh, man. I have a Black/Black/Solar Smart Alec which I acquired used a few years back, and I love it. But that Aubergine/Mountain Grey Smart Alec in the pre-order is calling my name, because those are my colors!!
