    Do you travel at all with your S25? I sometimes need more space than my S19/CP combo allows, but I don't think switching to a S22 will make enough difference. Just wondered if a S25 would be better or if I should use my NFTD instead of the CP?

    Well, that was largely enough nudging for such a low fence to go over!

    A Cloud/Island S19 with matching Island zipper pulls, an internal frame and a few other doo-dads (one needs to take advantage of the flat international shipping fee) are now on their way to France.

    Reading through many forum posts gave me the irk to upgrade to an SN22 or S25, until I remembered that my objective was to replace my Co-Pilot. I am quite confident almost everything from the CP will fit in the front pockets except my big iPad Pro which will stay in the main compartment (with better protection to boot). And for travels the Brain Bag will remain hard to beat in any case.

    Let me now thank all of you for your advice and wish you a merry Synik Day!

    The S22 has the same height and width as the S19 but its depth is essentially the same as the S25. If you prefer packing favoring depth over height, then the S22 may be enough for uou.
    Bags - S25 (Mars Red balistic/Northwest sky/halcyon), S19 (Deep blue balistic/Iberian/halcyon). SCB (Nordic)
    Accessories - Nik's #4 wallets, Q-kits, pouches, stuff sacks, travel trays.

    My S25 is currently my go-to bag for short trips. My biggest quandary with the Synik was which size to go with, because I'd like to use it for travel as well, but the SN30 seems just a little too big for EDC, particularly when it's underpacked (as it would be most of the time in my case). I finally convinced myself that I can probably travel with the SN22, but it may be that once I have it in hand I'll decide I really need an SN30 for that purpose.

    FWIW, I've been experimenting with pretty minimalist packing, so it may be a lot more feasible for me than it would for someone else.
