    Hey Darcy, thanks for the pic! L15 turns out a bit taller than I expected, so the photos are really helpful.

    Would you mind posting photos of the same TB crew wearing the bags, but with their backs facing the camera?

    Deep Blue = Luminary 15
    Burnt Orange = Luminary 12

    Lulu is 5'2"

    So your large phone (5.8Ē x 3Ē / 147 x 74 mm) doesnít fit L12ís left pocket even if itís slotted in diagonally?

    @everythingslower, oops obviously I made a mistake here. I tried it again and actually the phone fits in both pockets. Sorry about that, I corrected the post. Thank you so much for asking and bringing this to my attention!

    Oh yay, then I could get the bag! I was having second thoughts about L12 if the side pocket doesn't fit big phone. Thanks for your help!

    6ft tall guy here. I donít carry much when Iím in town so I appreciate the L12ís size, did you hate the way the straps hit on you at our height or would it work? Iím talking about carrying it all day but only containing a wallet, keys, phone, and water bottle

    Hi onebag, it would work although I wouldn't call it ideal (I am also 6ft). The straps of the L12 are smaller, shorter and their top fixation points at the bag are closer together. Thus, they feel a bit tight at my armpits. I wouldn't call it uncomfortable but I would certainly wish they would be a bit more relaxed. The other issue is: The sternum strap sits really high on my chest even when the bag sits very high on my back which is important to benefit from the superb cushioning of the straps. Thus, I would certainly prefer the L15 even if I would need it for just a few things because the better carrying comfort would make the difference for me. But that is certainly a matter of taste.

    Here are some pics to illustrate it a bit better:

    Here I am wearing the L12:

    @bartleby, that's one of the best set of fit comparison pics I've ever seen, bravo!
    I like all the blues and greys...and all the happy citrus colours too!

    Thanks so much for the response! I certainly feel better with my decision to go with the L15. Your fit compare pics are so helpful!
