    Could the papers go into the large OP? Then into the FS for extra protection? Just a thought...

    Hi folks, and thank you for all the helpful photos and comments in this thread! I've ordered a FS for my Medium Café Bag and also one for the Synapse 25. I was wondering, is there any way to secure the FS so that it doesn't slip around or flop forwards inside the bag? I don't suppose this will be a major issue for the Café Bag, but I have found that the Synapse 25 has a sort of sloping base and things like folders and my iPad tend to sliiiiide down so that I have to keep pulling them up so they are standing upright against the back of the bag, if you see what I mean. That's why I was hoping there may be either a built-in way or a hack to keep the FS from similarly sliding around? :)
    So many bags. And I love them all.

    Funny @Antonia - I was thinking the exact thing last night - at least suspending the FS in the bag so they do not flop around and get squished in all that Synapse 25 (S25) goodness.

    I was thinking something like using a key strap to loop around the rail loop and the handle of the FS - similar to what others have done with the Side Effect (SE), 3D Organizer Cubes (3DOC), etc. You can probably use other things like Double Carabiners or Gatekeeper Rail Clips too.

    Is that what you are thinking of? I know @moriond and others have some great pictures of this concept using other TB accessories. Also, @ScottE22's video shows this too with an SE (go about 6 min 40 sec into the video):

    Also, I found that just putting the Large FS in the main compartment elastic pocket worked to keep the FS positioned how I like it.

    Hope this helps

    Cheers!

    Yes, in the Synapse 25 I like the FSlet for Large Cafe Bag here, and for the Synapse 19, I like using the FSlet for Medium Cafe Bag (since the FSlet for Large Cafe Bag can be too wide, if you're not using the space that way in the S19).

    Thank you, @tpnl and @moriond! Yes, I was thinking along the same lines - either securing it with a carabiner clip, or keystraps, or in the case of the Daylight Backpack and Synapse 25, slipping the FS into the interior pocket, though that may make it difficult to see what's in there. I'm a little surprised TB hasn't addressed the slippage possibility and added some O-rings or suchlike to attach clips. But I'm reserving judgment till it arrives and I see it in action (can't wait). I'm sure it will be fine, but there's always room for hacks! :)

    Edited to add Tom Bihn's reply to my question about this on their Facebook post: "No way to secure the FS; maybe flip the side with heavier stuff towards the back of the bag? We find they stay pretty upright in our use!"

    One more question... sorry! Can the medium cafe bag with the medium sized Freudian Slip also comfortably hold a Side Effect? I pretty much always carry a Side Effect, whatever larger bag I'm using, to keep my most important items.

    Let me check that, be right back. Ok I tried it out and it works but can be a bit tight.

    Thanks SO much, @ilkyway! I really appreciate all the photos and answers!
    I am trying to watch my pennies more carefully these days so I want to consider my needs before I press the "buy" button, tempting though it is.
    I suppose that how full the Freudian Slip and Side Effect are is a factor, as well as whether I pack a dyneema or ballistic Side Effect. So I could probably make it work. I would even carry the SE almost empty, just so it is there in case I need it. I do like the idea of giving the cafe bag more vertical organization.

    By the way, your cat is beautiful in the picture above.

    Yes these all factor in my SE is quite full and that FS is not too empty on the lower end too. So you have some ways to make it an easier fit. But it worked even like this. Though I took the hip-belt of that is usely on my SE as I felt that would be too much. I would stasch that in a Q-Kit at an O-Ring if I wanted this configuration.

    PS: My cat loves the compliment

    Thanks for the wonderful pictures and details! Sorry if I missed it, but could you comment on the "stiffness" of the Freudian Slips (FS)? In post #18, the FS in Ilkway's Large Cafe Bag (4th picture in the post) seems to bend quite a bit. How flexible are the FSs?

    They is not an easy question to answer. They are bendable, if you put a large bottle in it will bend towards that bottle unless you habe something flat and rigit on the other side. But they are by no means floppy. We have these fouldable outoor things to sit on with a foam in them. Kind of like these.

    Not sire if this helps. If you give me something to try out so you can get a feeling of the bendyness?
