    Yep--this is what I was going for. Optionality is a win.

    I didn't even realize my Aeronaut came with a chest strap...I must have removed it that quickly.

    I have a tile slim and it fits the Minimalist wallet. Indeed, the #4 is the version you want (and the one I also got for that very transit reason). I actually don't carry my minimalist wallet--went...

    Absolutely in the same boat on both counts: (1) too many shoulder straps that I will never use (e.g. the side kick straps b/c I only ever wanted to use them as pouches--same with the Travel Cubelet),...

    The adding of the oring is the challenging part. But you can use a wire dopp or a Magpul Daka in there and it's fine.

    Back to the OP, thank you for this comparison. I also have a 34L GR2 that I...

    This is pretty exciting. Synik pre-ordered--look forward to these.

    I've been using ITW web dominators for a long time, then moved to Strapeez, which are actually incredible...and admittedly...

    I thought about matching my packing cubes to each other, but never to the bag interior. I actually like the way that a contrasting set of cubes look in a bag. My favorite is my A30 with a neutral...

    I'm curious--to what extent does Shopify provide sales analytics that can help inform the production decision?

    Thank you for the very helpful review. I can tell from these pics that I won't be using the tie-downs (so it's good they're removable). I've been packing clamshell backpacks for years without...

    IMO, this is one of the big things that Tom Bihn is missing in the Synik (and the Synapse). I always like to secure my valuables in an interior zip pocket when traveling--and even for EDC. I want...

    Hah, I definitely also had a neoprene strap on my bass in the past too (thin it was a NeoTech branded one though). It was amazing. Made the bass feel like half the weight...which is probably why it...

    I have both and also agree--the Mini optech strap is better for anything smaller than the A30. I actually use it on my Goruck 32L kit bag...so by the transitive property, it would probably work well...

    I'd vote for a no-badge option for the Synik. Perhaps TB could add the exterior logo patch as a final step before shipping per instructions (not sure what step in production it has to be done).

    Very helpful. I think I might stick to A30 cubes in that case b/c they also work well in the Synapse 25, Aeronaut 30, Goruck GR1 21L (perfectly), and the Axiom 24. :)

    Very helpful thanks! And looks like the A30 cubes fit. I am now planning to get the Synik 30 (after initially thinking I'd get the 22, but then realizing I have other EDC bags that I prefer, and...

    I have a Synapse 25 and never loved the big centered logo and actually thought about removing it...but never did. It's kind of cool to have that old-school, not-modern, somewhat-homely branding...

    Wow. That's actually pretty innovative--have not run across that feature before. Trying to think of the use case when I'd need both access points...but regardless, very interesting.

    I saw the pics on FB--and am curious b/c it wasn't super clear--is the dedicated laptop compartment accessible from a dedicated outside zipper?

    Regardless, I know this bag had been teased earlier,...

    I always like having a backpack as a personal item because I can fit more in there and prefer the two-strap ergonomics for walking around at the destination. So in the case of TB, that'd be a...

    I don't have an S19, but I love the Spectre Tech Compression Cubes. They're different from the TB cubes (I generally use a combo of both when traveling with a rollaboard). I believe they sell a...

    Also very much awaiting this dedicated-laptop-compartment version of a TB bag! And potentially with clamshell main compartment and black halcyon!

    I thought for a second that the lumbar pocket might be a cool idea--especially if it opens into the body of the bag similar to side pockets in the TAD Axiom 24. But, having something take up space...
