    Smile Ordered my first TB bag (synapse 19)- pics please

    Hi!

    TB newbie here!

    After envying my friends new Synapse 19 for over a month, I bit the bullet and ordered one as a new EDC as my faithful Kanken is getting very hard done by, and isn't quite bug enough now I cary breakfast and lunch to work everyday.

    I ordered cloud grey with island blue halcyon inner. Im so excited for it to arrive Smilie, but hope the grey isn't too pale.

    In the mean time, can people post pics of what they carry in their Synapse 19 to tide me over until mine arrives?

    I'm already debating saving for a cafe bag and an aeronaut 30....... Stick Out TongueHeart Eyes

    Happy to be here Smilie

    Fellow TB newbie! Can't help with packing pics (have an S25), but don't worry about Cloud being too pale, it's quite a bit darker than what the pictures show. Looks very sleek and smart Smilie

    Congrats! I have a cloud cafe bag, and I'd definitely call it a medium shade of grey. It's very nice and versatile! Also island is such a nice color, I have it for the inside of my black halcyon S25. I think the Cloud/Island combo will be really great!

    I didn't take any pictures, but I used the S19 as my one bag for a trip overseas earlier this year. It holds so much stuff and is very easy to work with. The pocket layout gives you a lot of options to set it up in the most useful way for yourself. Personally I put a small water bottle in the side pocket instead of the center pocket, because it just made it easier to access. That bottom pocket though Heart Eyes Heart Eyes

    Hehe, I'm still very new to the whole TB appreciation, maybe when I have a few more bits and have given my bag a proper test Smilie waiting on more colours (and more money) for the A45 laundry packing cubes, don't think Wasabi or Violet will match well with Island

    Not to enable or anything, but the colours might go better together than you think Smilie

    Clockwise from top: violet aether; wasabi aether (def more dull greenish yellow than this pic); carbon aether (discontinued); island aether with island halcyon in the middle

    Between the change in fabric and the lack of white lines (vs halcyon), the appearance (to my eyes) of the aethers vs the halcyons is different but very complimentary...

    Ooooh, thanks for the pic! They both look much better there... 2 of the small LPCs and an internal frame (maybe a small Snake Charmer too) would make for a pretty perfect setup for me. Hurry up payday Scrunch Face
