    If single-shoulder carry isn't a deal killer, I think I would aim for a Truck or Monster Truck. They're also great for car carry, but not for bike carry.

    I don't like to use too many pouches in the Synapse 19 or Synik 22 since I feel like they are a little wasteful of space in a bag that already nearly completely organizes itself.

    I like the Q-Kit...

    I wouldn't mind if the PCSB ended up getting a "fleshed out" version the way the PCBP became the Daylight Backpack. It's just the right size.

    I think the Yeoman suffered from not being "Tom Bihn" enough. Good bags but no pockets or compartments.

    Bring a small dry sack to put any sensitive electronics for when you’re around water. Much easier to deal with than a rain cover, and guaranteed to keep your gear dry.
