  1. Synapse shoulder straps replaced by Edgeless EV50?

    I swear I remember reading somewhere in the forums or FAQs that the Synapse shoulder straps were going to eventually be replaced by the new EV50 straps that are on the Synik, but I may have been...

    Oh my, what a gorgeous pup! :heart_eyes: About the off leash thing... we've had dogs all our lives but this is one of the most exceptional pups that we've ever had, no credit to me! It does help that...

    Very very true! I'm not sure what it would take to dent a TB bag. Is that even possible??? :D Just to clarify, I added a post above regarding something that happened yesterday to my Snake Charmer....

    Absolutely! That's why I tried to keep this post and comments only about surface marks & dirt, not about rips, tears, piling, fabric failure, etc because that's not an issue that I've ever run across...

    haha this is awesome! And yep, I don't like worrying about my bags. The purpose of the bag is to protect what's inside; having to watch over the bag sort of defeats the purpose. I wouldn't say I...

    So it sounds like what you are saying is that my Olive 500D TC is about as durable as it gets for everyday use, so I should just ignore the dirt and stains? I just wish it was prettier for those...

    Yes yes! In regards to fabric, I choose a TB bag solely based on color so when folks start posting about ballistic, it sometimes takes me a moment to realize they're not talking about missiles. :D

    Nah because it's really not enough of an issue to bother me. If it continues to get worse, I might do that at some point. I wonder if it could be the Olive color? I'm curious to see if my S22 in...
  11. Which fabrics are more durable for rugged, rural, outdoor (aka dirty) lifestyle?

    I'm not very knowledgeable of TB fabrics and reading the materials glossary past the 4th paragraph makes me feel like I need a large shot of whiskey, so my terms won't be highly accurate but I can...

    Thanks for your update. I like hearing how the S22 is working for you along with your thoughts. I received my S22 with the first preorder and absolutely love it. I agree with you that it feels heavy,...

    The strap keepers did the same thing to me. After trying multiple ways to attach them, I think I've come up with two good solutions that work very well, at least for me.

    The first solution is to...

    Yeah I'm sure others have quickly figured this out. I struggle way more with opening gate keepers than I do with opening strap keepers. :D

    I know it's a long shot, and the dimensions say no, but I'm hoping the S25 FS will squeeze into an S22. Any chance someone out there can make my day and tell me that it's possible?

    The hybrid install is because I didn't have enough space on the strap to install the strap keeper the TB way. It also makes the extra strap more secure. The way I did it, the extra strap can't be...

    I agree that all of the Synapses are heavy-ish bags and they can be a bit hot, as well. The great thing about heaviness with these bags is that it translates into sturdiness and protection. IMO the...
