    Converting the two small zip pockets into one is a great idea, and much more useful to me. Thank you!

    The zippers break in a little over time, and I use a little WD-40 on mine, but they're still a little tougher than most manufacturers (which means they last forever) but not as easy to get into as...

    I can address some of your off-body carry questions, as it's not a commonly discussed topic on these forums.

    Velcro could work on the inside of the main compartment and could even be sewn through...

    Oh man, I kind of like the idea of the narrower spacing... If you've already made a couple of the GE's that I pre-ordered, I could save you some time! :)

    It's unapologetically Aeronautesque. I really do like some of the things they've done with it though. I'd be all over the extra organization, quick-access pocket, and the expandable bottle pocket;...

    For the OP- your proposed strategy is exactly my preferred method, and for the same reasons. I like to carry a smaller backpack for the essentials & electronics, as well as EDC at the destination....

    I had a fidlock slider sewn in place of the buckle on a Maker's Bag, and it's amazing. In my opinion it makes the bag so much more functional with the ability to operate the closure one-handed, and...

    Haha, you still have time!

    Wilderness does look like it's gaining quite the following. I'd love to see it in person to really get a feel for it.

    Love seeing what everyone went with!

    I've been waiting too long to let the opportunity pass. I went with an Ursa S30, Coyote S25, and Nebulous S22... And I've justified it by talking myself into...

    I've owned and used both bags quite a bit. For daily carry, undoubtedly I would opt for the S25. In theory, there isn't much of a size difference, but I find that in practice the Synik just feels...

    I don't always use my TB bags when I go to work, but a few GWP's, a deluxe spiff kit, and a snake charmer organize a lot of the goodies that come along for the ride.

    Here's an A5 GWP that holds...

    Coming from a recent student- I wouldn't recommend the DLBP at all for school. Books are heavy and you also need to carry lots of other class-specific tools and a laptop at a minimum. Compartments...

    The S19/22 works, but it does look a little small on me. I'm not a big guy by any means, and the S19 is definitely the smallest I'd go for in a backpack- I prefer taller, narrower bags as opposed to...

    That's a good question, and I've been battling with it a bit myself. For some cases, I like parapack in the way that it's closer to halcyon but without the ripstop grid pattern. But with this...

    I happen to have a Pelican 1510 as well as the S30. The handle fits through the bottom of the passthrough, but not the top. So can hook your fingers onto the handle through the opening and tow it...

    I've removed the logo on three of my TB bags! Like you, I'm not a huge fan of branding, even from companies I admire. I prefer for my bag to be a sleeper, and if someone recognizes it as a TB bag and...

    The clamshell and extra space it provides is what allows the bag to...

    My opinion is that the internal frame makes life better in all instances.

    It was a game changer when I got one for my S25, but didn't think it would be needed for my S19 with smaller loads. Well,...
