    Thanks for the tips. I guess I can get the "black" look back. But it's still disconcerting to have the zippers on a $200 bag "peeling".

    Upside down zippers

    I love my S25, but I have an earlier generation with the water proof part of the zipper on the outside. I think we are referring to these as upside down?

    Anyway, now that I've used the bag for a...

    I think I've found why this peeling is happening and I think it's a design flaw. I haven’t used my pilot much since I got it, but I’m also starting to see this issue. Whenever you hold the handle of...

    I'll be getting a Daylight Backpack once those are available in Halcyon. I like the black, but since almost every bag I have is black, I may have to wait until more color combos come out.

    Thanks for reminding me. 60% larger would be a nice bump up. I don't have anything particular in mind that I need to carry, but I imagine that a large duffel would be something...

    I suddenly felt like getting a big duffle bag, so naturally looked at the Yeoman.

    Strength of Aeronaut 45 backpack straps?

    Thanks! I missed that part about the two tiny holes. I knew about the gaps for the water bottle pocket though :)

    Glad to hear they are intentional, though I would prefer not to have them :P
