    If I understand what you mean, yes it does have a sheen but it really takes on "dark" well to look more like a sort of cel-shaded appearance in the light that is very nice.

    Pretty much same here. If I do pick something else up in the future it will likely be a monster truck but not right now.

    This is exactly how I do mine too. I've tried a few different ways and this is the best one to reduce pull metal-on-metal noise to almost zero I find.

    I'm 6ft and broad shouldered and I think the Synik 30 fits me for EDC. I think someone around 5'2" as you are may find it a bit too long for a comfortable EDC but I could be wrong.

    I would say Orange probably has this issue too, looking at the pics on the site I would never buy a bag that bright for EDC personally, but in person it is much more subtle and quite nice.

    Very nice. Is that after market strap (the white one) or is that an official Sinn one?

    I almost got a Sinn 900 a few years back but I found a watch that could display notifications too useful so I...

    Did you buy other things?

    Hey @Ellsass I did a bunch of comparison pics with different color pulls in here: https://forums.tombihn.com/photos-videos-and-reviews/15372-synik-30-review-photo-thread-color-comparisons.html

    The only thing I'm a little disappointed with is the travel tray.

    It's clearly well made, but I don't think the design fits using 210 ballistic, even though I really like the color:

    I just want to quickly add that people are right about the pics not really doing the Parapack justice, it is a really nice almost cel shaded style. I prefer the look and feel of it to 525, but we'll...

    Hi, I just received my Synik 30 (blue parapack) and Daylight Briefcase (Nordic Halcyon) and thought I'd quickly add some comparison pics. I'll be able to do a few more tonight next to my Steel A45...

    I agree, it's a flat charge of $10 for brokerage + the tax and I have had lots of parcels sent via USPS and it's worked well. The tracking number from USPS can even be used on the Canada Post side...

    This is a bit concerning given the supposed deprecation of 1050 for 525 even on the travel bags.

    I wonder if anyone has experience checking bags made in 525 and could comment on scuffing there.

    I wiil, not open until tomorrow.

    UPS Brokerage fee, should it be this high?

    My bag is arriving to Canada tomorrow and got the below bill for taxes online to pay. I was expecting around $10 but $37.37 in brokerage fees seems insane to me, is this normal?

    That’s quite a lot of bag with a roller and an A45!

    If you fill the A45 and its heavy I’d recommend the optional waist belt attachments it makes a huge difference carrying on your back.

    Great thank you.

    Kind of needs a pic on the 3DOC clear page too :)


    That does look like it could be useful on the odd occasion when you have your hands full.
