    That's a wonderful idea, Darcy. I like it very much. The sense of connection, anticipation, and excitement would be very welcome to those of us who've hardly left our homes since we can't remember...

    I'm totally with you here. I don't understand why padded sleeves are so popular. But I also don't care for TB's system of hanging a cache from webbing loops with gatekeepers. I now have a custom...

    I've already been thinking about using a pair of the small-sized Trinity bags in exactly the same way. Combined, they're probably about 46 liters, but either one can fit under the seat, and the other...

    I can't speak to your question, but every time I see "Monster Truck" here I think someone needs to organize a TB Monster Truck "Rally". :cool:

    Given the dimensions, the small Trinity seems much closer to the WF: probably about 23 or 24 liters to the WF's 26. (The Stowaway was only 12 liters.)

    Thank you for all of this, Darcy! I've been dying to see how this would progress. I can easily see wanting two of the three sizes -- perhaps the small and medium.

    But I could also see traveling...

    Exactly. And for the Synik 22 GE, there's the negligible weight of a second zipper slider on the bottom pocket.

    20 days in 22 liters! That's impressive. I've done trips of about that length with a Shadow Guide, which is 31 liters.

    This is why I don't own a Synik or Synapse and wouldn't use one for travel. The very FIRST step in securing zippered compartments is to eliminate as many of them as possible. Yes, it's a minor...
