    Depending on the bulkiness of the laptop sleeve, I think a 14-inch laptop would fit. I recently used my DLBP to haul my 13.3-inch laptop without issue. My setup included:

    My current setup is the S25 for 1+ week trips and cold-weather trips, and the DLBP for day/short trips. The DLBP fits most of my S25 kit pretty well; it's just not as organized/easy to get stuff out....

    That all seems like it would fit in the S19, but I've never had an S19. Here's an example of what fits in the S25: https://blog.tombihn.com/portable-culture-portrait-cdh.

    I would like to see a somewhat larger DLBP (DLBP-19?) with heftier fabric, in coyote or burnt orange. I know this would negate a lot of the whole point of the DLBP in the first place, so maybe it...

    If you put the laptop in that pocket, it's not against your back, which I like. Haven't noticed any weight distribution issues.

    None of the key straps I have will fit through the cache loops in my S25. Not sure if it's a construction defect or just a design change for that particular production run.

    I have a medium tri-star packing cube that fits great in the S25. Width-wise, it slides in well; it only takes up 2/3 of the S25's vertical height and half or less of its depth.

    I could never quite figure out how to use the BB method, but any gentle roll that doesn't mess with the jacket collar or pant pleats too much generally works. I've rolled a suit in a Synapse 25.
