  1. Synik Laptop Compartment: The zipper causes wear on my MBP

    Hi wonderful TB folks.

    I've been using my Synik 30 as my daily work bag for some time now, transporting a 13" MBP to and fro.

    I exclusively use the outside zipper to access the laptop...

    I've had a Navy Parapack Synik 30 for slightly under 60 days. It's holding up fine. There are a few white scuffs on the exterior at the bottom of the water bottle pocket from where I scraped it...

    I don't own a 3DOC, but I have found that the Side Effect works well attached to the o rings on the front panel of the Synik 30, and I appreciate the extra pocketage on the SE.

    Here are some photos to illustrate the size difference between the Innergie (which is really quite tiny) and the Baseus (which is certainly larger, but not huge by any means).

    I find this skinny...

    The Baseus arrived yesterday and initial impressions are positive. It was smaller than I'd expected, but still certainly bigger than the Innergie. I'll take some photos soon and post them.

    The Super Mini GWOP is PERFECT for the Jabra 75T case, I agree. Mine live in one as well, tethered inside the right side pocket.

    I've just ordered this Baseus 65W 2C 1A charger.

    It has received a positive review fromm ChargerLab, but does not appear to be IF certified. I'm looking forward to trying it out. If it works, it...

    I think those photos just reflect wearer preference. I also prefer a higher posture on my backpacks, and have found the Synapse/Synik to be very comfortable. I'm able to get them both high and snug.

    I'm 6'1", 220 or so, and went from an S25 to an S30 for daily to work carry, and don't find it to be that much different. The S30 is definitely a bit squarer/less of a teardrop shape, but carries...

    I had an Unfortunate Incident with the Flap Cache back in 2016. I was using it going through TSA, and they found something in my Synapse that merited a second look. The TSA person picked up my bag...

    There are a set of cache loops inside the main compartment, on the front panel, so you can definitely install a cache.

    I'm a Synapse 25 user since 2015, every day with a cache for my MacBook Pro.

    I'm a recent Synik user, and while there is a LOT to like about this bag (parapack, clamshell, new handle, straps,...

    Thanks for posting these detailed photos. It's making me really want a Navy Parapack Synik 30. I'd thought that parapack was a matte fabric, but it looks to have a sheen in your photos. Can you...

    The Freudian Slip in my S25 is getting kind of weary. The problem is that the bottom of it ends up curling, probably due to weight further up. It'd be neat if there was a way to add a stay or other...
