    Agreed. 525 Ballistic is, in my opinion, a great lighter but still robust compromise for bags such as day-sacks, shoulder bags. But for main luggage such as Aeronauts which might occasionally need to...

    Welcome. I don’t have a Luminary 12 so cannot confirm. It seems it will fit in main compartment, but may just not fit in padded back pocket. Hopefully someone else can confirm, but suggest you also...

    Thoroughly recommend the Firewood Carrier, it’s so practical for wood fires - and probably also a variety of other imaginative uses?! Off camping next weekend and an essential part of kit to take.

    No need to rent a car unless you are doing a very specific day trip. Sydney has good public transport. Even day trip to Blue Mountains is easy by train. If doing wine tasting tour then better to pay...

    I was going to reply, but Denises great response almost matches my favourites in Sydney. Day trip to Hunter Valley for some wine tasting is only addition to offer.

    I am not a parent, so this is all a mystery to me - i just carry what I’m told with family and friend’s babies. So nothing helpful to add, other than congratulations!

    Exactly! I am struggling to picture what colour is being imagined. To me espresso is near black.

    The idea for sharing ideas with Pantone colour samples is a good one.

    And in line with my comments a little earlier... Synik 30 in Aubergine / NW Sky just ordered.
    Deep Blue / Coyote was tempting, but Aubergine just looks so good.

    Agreed that aubergine is a really lovely colour. It's not bright purple, but isn't plain and "boring". And for me it works equally well for personal travel and leisure, as well as in business...

    To me the logo is fine, it’s part of the bag. For aesthetic reasons I personally do prefer it centred - unlike on the new Synik, but that’s not a big deal. I have no problem to publicise products...

    Same situation and very happy with 525 ballistic exterior for everyday bags for a bit some structure/rigidity than halcyon, but still good flexibility compared to 1050 ballistic.

    Same reaction. The new logo position does look like an after thought. Personally prefer the traditional position, and happy to have it prominent.

    That’s a good suggestion. I also would not use it as a luggage handle pass through, but using this space with a zipped bottom to slip a newspaper or magazine would be great.

    Looks to be an interesting new bag. Maybe I missed it somewhere, but I am curious what is the origin of the Synik name?
