    Are there o-rings in the FS19?

    I recently purchased a FS for the S19 on ebay. Seems great - however, I thought it had O-rings on it. In photos of the 25 version, there's straps coming out. Are there any O-rings in the slip? Is there a reason I can't find mine, if so?

    I have the S25 frame sheet, and it is just a frame sheet. There are no straps on it other than the one that is used to hold the sheet down on the little wings. Mine does not have o-rings on it either

    I think FS is Freudian Slip, not Frame Sheet. It took me a bit to figure out what the abbreviation was, too.

    The online photos of the Freudian Slip do not show any o-rings, but the S25 FS does show a key strap, which sort of implies there might be an o-ring in there, but I don't think there is one.

    From the online description:

    "Synapse 19 Freudian Slip
    10 organizational pockets, of which there are: two folder pockets (folders/papers fit vertically), three open-top pockets for small electronics or a notebook, two mesh pockets for bulky items, two pen slots, and a business card slot."

    No mention of o-rings, and TB always mentions the number of o-rings if there are any.

    It was the Freudian slip - sorry for the confusion. Thank you both for your response!

    My Freudian Slip for S25 has 4 o-rings, 2 in each zippered pocket.

    Here is a super rubbish pic of two of the o-rings:

    Thank you - that confirms the S19 one doesn’t have it! Thanks!

    I have hacked my FS by threading a split ring onto the elastic on top of the pockets, going through the holes in the mesh. This is not going to be as robust as TB’s sewing, of course, but the stuff I attach to these “faux-rings” isn’t going to put any stress on them anyway - it’s just to keep my keys, earbuds, etc from getting lost accidentally.

    The S19 does not have any O-Rings.

    It’s a real shame as every other sized one (as far as I know) has a zip pocket and O-Rings. These are the most used features in my Freudian slips so a shame the S19 sized one doesn’t have them.
