    Welcome to the forums, @briefbriefs!

    I'm sorry to hear that the Syniks didn't work for you. For what it's worth, my "Synik or no" decision was similar: 22 doesn't fit my work laptop, 30 is larger...

    It sounds like the two main issues with the current arrangement (O-ring on the "Cache" side of the main compartment) are that the O-ring (and thus the end of the Key Strap) is less accessible because...

    Welcome to the forums, @King_Qong!

    I hope the Syniks are everything you hoped for. Between them, you've got a lot of use cases covered. Deep Blue is also my favorite color. :)

    Fabric comparison table

    I was wondering how some of the Tom Bihn fabrics compare to each other (motivated initially by weight), and I found that it was not always easy to tease out the differences when looking at the...

    Hi! Just yesterday, I pulled the trigger on a second-hand WF, in large part because it's TB's only "main item" travel bag that will fit in personal-item/under-seat sizers while fully packed. (I'm...

    Looks like that is a "yes". The cube in question is almost identical to a WF small: 11.8 x 9.1 x 3.5 inches (vs WF S being 11.8 x 8.7 x 3.1 inches).
    In these photos, it's not stuffed tight, but it...

    I have a an S19 and different brand of packing cube that's almost exactly the same size as the WF small; if nobody else gets to it, I should get to try it and take a photo tonight.

    Interesting! I think of the TS and the WF like siblings, and just considered the TS a "bigger WF with a middle compartment". What differences jump out at you between them?

    A dark-colored PCSB-sized shoulder bag in a non-black dark color. Adding a dark 210d ballistic color would do it, as would making a PCSB-sized bag in 525d ballistic or 400d Halcyon. (Bonus points if...

    For what it's worth, I think the only Coyote PCSB so far is in 210d ballistic, not 525d (the 525d Coyote items are expected to be available sometime within the next year).
