    My sis just ordered an S25 frame sheet for her BB and loves it. I tried it out and, just like with the Synapse, it makes a noticeable difference with a medium-large loaded pack.

    I actually prefer non-clamshell designs. I am happy to hear that the Synapse doesn't seem to be going away anytime soon. I wouldn't be sad if the Guide's Edition was it's "replacement" as the...

    OK, so the 32oz. fits just fine (Pardon the image quality- 6 year old phone here). Width is no issue at all. The length does, however, keep the bottle from taking advantage of both straps. It wants...

    I'm with Kirk. Flaps over the zippers are, in my opinion, a good thing. Some people don't care for them though. BB doesn't HAVE to be bigger than the S25, but if you adjust the side straps and fill...

    I've said this a few times, but I removed mine. I keep it handy in case I'd ever feel I needed it, but honestly, I don't see that happening. I really just wanted the "poke barrier". To that end, the...

    +1 for removing the aluminum (aluminium :D). That is useful for loads beyond my needs, but the plastic sheet really improved things. Before that, I would put something soft and thick between the back...

    My sis has a BB and I am tempted by that thing all the time (and I love my S25). It IS a tank. It can compress, or grow and gorge on anything you want to pack. I really like the lips that cover the...
