    Road Buddy Alternative?

    I'd been eyeing a Road Buddy 60 for a bit, but unfortunately it was discontinued before I could get one. I currently have an A30, which I like, but wouldn't mind more space to pack stuff, as up until...

    Flew United and Delta this weekend with just an A30. Packed light/not overstuffed (with padded hip belt and internal frame), it fits in United's personal item sizer. Saw an Air Canada sizer nearby...

    I've just found a new use for my Field Journal Notebook - tabletop RPGs! Perfect for taking notes in and with some accessories I can also keep my character sheets folded up in folders and divide them...

    Yes! It's so adaptable to many items of varying shapes/sizes. It's not too large, but can carry a decent amount of stuff. I also really like its appearance. The top-loading design is a bit annoying...

    An appreciation for retired designs

    With the recent retirement of a number of beloved bags, I took a look at my collection of Tom Bihn bags and realised a vast majority of them are now retired-- literally the only TB bags I own that...

    Agreed. I've been eyeing a Brain Bag on days my Smart Alec can't fit everything I'm carrying, but the lack of frame sheet for the Brain Bag has been keeping me from making the leap.

    Sadly no photos but here's my quick recap:

    Recently went on a 6 day trip to Boston. I thought I'd try one-bagging the trip. Usually I bring my Smart Alec and Large Cafe Bag and had planned to just...

    @Robw, I, too, was hoping that the new internal frame would be able to fit inside the SA. However, I've been using a sheet of Kydex thermoplastic I cut down to fit inside the SA for some time and...

    Thanks for the beautiful photos and information!

    Since I see you also own a Smart Alec, do you know if the internal frame of the Guides Edition S25 fits/works in the SA?

    I wonder how the carry-on backpack part would work for every day use. Or is it similar to the Aeronaut in that sense? I own a Smart Alec but have been eyeing a Brain Bag in my future for the days...

    Travel trays. I picked one up because I thought it'd be nice to have a house for my keys and wallet and everything else I keep in my pockets. Now I have four and they're all in use.

    Buzz Alternative?

    Apologies if this is in the incorrect forum!

    I've recently started looking into some sling bags-- I'm the happy owner of a Smart Alec and Large Cafe Bag, but there are times where I find the SA to...

    Just a quick update:

    I wound up ordering the Smart Alec, partly due to comments about its comfort for shorter people vs the Synapse 25 and partly for its versatility. It came in last week and wow,...

    Oops, apologies for my belated response.

    The Synapse 19 seems too small for how I travel (carry-on only with trips usually ranging anywhere from 4-12 days). I'm not an ultralight traveller--...

    Thank you all so much for your responses! I really appreciate the photos, simulations, and comments-- I hadn't realised the Synapse 25 had such a large main compartment, nor did I know that the Brain...
