    I have two insulated Klean Kanteens, 16oz. and 20oz. Both fit in my Sy22 -- the 20oz. fills the pocket completely, the 16oz. gives a bit more space to add in a small notebook or something else.

    I think it would work very well as a school bag. University would depend on the workload and degree -- for my Physics education, it wouldn't have worked at all. For my English education (which I...

    I have my full text + a few picture review up here on my portfolio/blog.

    For the TB forums, though, I wanted to cover a bit more about the bag and how I feel about it, as a supplementary to some...

    Received mine today.

    My first thought is that you can see the DNA of the original Synapse carried through this design, and the changing needs of people in their day to day and -- especially --...

    I'll be comparing my review 22 Synik to both the 1st run Synapse 19 and the Synapse 25.

    I travel with a Bellroy High Rise and a Belllroy card holder.

    Would prefer to just use the card holder but there are times and I have been places where cash is necessary and the High Rise fits...

    I've been into it for quite a while, for various reasons.

    Mostly professional. I travel quite a bit for work (250+ days out of the United States per year), and it makes it easier on me if my...

    I travel with a fairly lightweight down jacket.

    A few quick photos

    My packing list is fairly personal to me, and I don't know what others would really get out of it but here it is.

  11. Synapse 19 Thoughts after 5 years and 30,000+ miles.

    My name's Jon. I'm, among many other things, a writer.

    I bought a Synapse 19 in the early months of 2012; in the past 5 years, my bag has been with me everywhere I've been, living in 7/8 countries...

    As far as what you brought with you on the plane, the only quibble I have is a vest. Vests are terrible as insulative items and you'd be much better off if you were bringing a full sleeved version,...

    I wear Cotopaxi Samburu pants. They're just rebranded LEDGE pants -- super soft, stretchy, look dressy enough for me, stain resistant, etc.

    They're the only pants I really travel with anymore and...

    Outlier shirts are great. I got the Patagonia shirts some years ago because I had a Patagonia giftcard.

    Pants-wise, I'd say the Slim Dungarees are among the best. However, the Cotopaxi pants are...

    I'm 6'0 and 200 lbs.

    I don't currently do anything special with my clothes. I might look into a packing cube if I ever packed more, but honestly I have plenty of space now.
  16. The packing list of a world traveler/vagabond.

    Hello. I'm Snowster.

    For the past five years, I've been essentially living out of my Synapse 19. I've traveled to over 20 countries, and have lived in nearly every climate imaginable. I chose the...

    Cotopaxi gear is great, and every purchase gives to an associated charity.

    Khunu is a new brand I'm testing out as a base layer. Yak wool is really something, and works great in the current...

    More from Tom

    The only suggestion I have is that I would love to hear more from Tom himself.

    Recently I read Yvon Chouinard's autobiography/business book "Let my People Go Surfing", and it really affected my...

    I've done it table by table for categories (Clothing, Electronics, Toiletries, Misc.)
  20. I've converted my packing list from an Excel doc to Airtable.

    https://airtable.com

    It's been a seamless process so far, and something I highly recommend.

    I travel with a Cotopaxi Tikal now. It replaced a Patagonia Houdini.

    I'd recommend both jackets, depending on what you need. The Cotopaxi is a full Goretex shell, while the Houdini is more...

    The Outlier shirts are just much higher quality than Icebreaker T's. The long sleeve Icebreaker I own, on the other hand, is really high quality as well and something I'd recommend.

    What bag are you carrying?
    Synapse 19 from 2010. I think it's time to upgrade to the 25 in Burnt Orange, if I can justify it when the bag is still in almost perfect condition.

    What are you...

    If you can find one nearby or live in the Pacific Northwest, Feathered Friends make the best jackets I've ever worn. You might be able to get one used or refurbished from the store itself in Seattle,...
