    It was a beautiful day, ready to drive to his nanny to drop him off. The ray of sunshine reflected up the matte sheen of both 525 Fabric. They has been our EDC since March 2018.

    I put well in excess of 200,000 miles on this bag; daily as a briefcase and stuffed to the brim bi-weekly for travel as a backpack, under plane seats, slung on the back of coffee shop seats, and over airport toilet partitions. The zipper waterproofing has degraded at those corners that get the most contact, and the zipper finish has weathered:

    And you can see some of the scratching of the ballistic along the edges of the powerbank I keep in there, pretty amazing that with all the under-seat contact with AV boxes and aluminum seat struts and bolts there is no actual damage to the ballistic:

    I've been a big fan of one bag travel, and on my own have not traveled with any other bag since I got this. What I spent on the bag and accessories was steep for me at the time, but I don't think any other bag would have made it this far. In all these years, stuffed to the brim, literally using the zipper to squeeze the bag down at it's fullest, not one broken seam.
    This is awesome. A fantastic example of a TB bag’s durability.

    I bought this Synapse in February 2013 when it wasn't the Synapse 19 and it has been my daily commute bag since. As you can see from the photos, you can see which zippers I use the most and the peeling of the dyneema/halcyon. My main zipper has gotten to the point where it doesn't close on first try and I have to go back and try again till it gets closed.

    I'm sure there are others bags out there that have been well used.

    I am fairly certain TB will repair the main zipper for you. Call customer service and ask.
