    I don't have an A30, but I'm pretty sure that even if I did, this would never have occurred to me. Great hack!

    Thanks for piling on! I agree it's better to have them together, especially since we are both super perceptive and therefore agree about most things.

    Cristina, I was transferring stuff from an older S19. Is it possible that the Synapse pocket proportions have changed, so that the difference is not really between Synik and Synapse but rather...

    I crammed an empty one in there just now, but it was hard to do and it got pretty crumply. You could maybe fit a full one in there, but it would not be an aesthetically satisfying experience.

    Random thoughts on the Synik 22

    I was fortunate enough to get picked by The Great and Terrible Countron for one of the pre-production Synik 22s, and it came today. I've benefited so much from other people's reviews I thought I'd...

    Not this time! I usually avoid black or blue bags but the more I thought about parapack the more I realized that was what I really wanted.

    If only to balance out the rampant auberginephilia of this thread, I'm just going to say that in the same way that people say that Aubergine is less, um, demonstrative IRL, some grays are much richer...

    My S25 is currently my go-to bag for short trips. My biggest quandary with the Synik was which size to go with, because I'd like to use it for travel as well, but the SN30 seems just a little too big...

    I have a ton of Tom Bihn stuff in various fabrics and I am super excited about my Synik 22 in black parapack. I never go with black or blue in bags, but I did this time because over the years I've...

    Well, everyone's tastes differ, but I don't think the Tom Bihn logo is ugly -- on the contrary, I think it's as well designed as the bags -- and I don't think the new placement ruins the look of the...
