    That does look pretty good! I've seen others with that level of padding but they don't usually pack that small. May have to add that to my Christmas list!

    I've been saving up but we have had a few financial setbacks lately so I'm not ready to buy now, but I have an idea about selling an old pack or two that may get me there in a few weeks and then I...

    The short length of the bag was one of the first things that caught my eye when you mentioned the smart alec. I wish I could use a packing cube as a backpack but my shoulders are not the best and...

    Mel, I am really glad you responded because, having watched your YT vids, I feel like we have similar travel styles. I rewatched your video on the Smart Alec and S25 and I really think you are right....

    Synapse Pockets Question

    I will be honest, I am not crazy about some parts of the Synapse bags and the new Synik doesn't fix any of that for me, but I keep coming back to Tom Bihn because I believe in the product and the...

    I have a Tortuga Air that is clamshell now and I never get into it on travel days and it is a weird shape for a day bag so I don't use it as one, but the clamshell, especially split down the middle...

    Darcy, I have no need for fat, round side pockets. I love the idea of the centered water bottle pockets, but it splits the front panel in two pockets that I can't fit a tablet or Kindle into and...

    I have to say, I kind of hate it. I loved that TB bags weren't clamshell. I really don't get why everyone is so obsessed with clamshell, Especially if you use packing cubes. I feel like it turns a...
  10. Compared to the Recon

    I see you've got a North Face Recon in your comparison photo. I was wondering if the L15 is actually comparable in what it can hold to that bag or is it about half the space? The Recon is about 30...

    Desperately, yes or something similar! My biggest problem with a lot of the Tom Bihn duffles is they are just too big.maybe for other people who pack more than I do but I only need 30 liters to...

    Definitely. I really do think that the brain bag is the better option for what I'm wanting to try to carry. I don't necessarily have to carry an 845 packing cube but that's the thing that fits...

    Backpack, okay thanks! I wish it was available in the darker blue right now because that is still my favorite color, but the BB with the hip belt seems like the most logical choice. It will be easy...

    My main travel is either in the US or from the US to other nations. Once overseas I'm not getting on planes as much as I prefer train travel. Would the BB fit in a carry on often enough in these...

    Yes, if my outer bag gets to big, I could weigh it down with more stuff than I need and not realize it so I'm trying to make sure I'm not buying a bigger bag than I need, but I have no idea how thick...

    Backpack,

    Good thoughts. I feel like I would prefer the BB over the S25 because the pockets are better suited for things I need mid flight, like my Kindle, but I was worried it was too big and a...

    Thanks! I've been struggling between the Synapse series and the Luminary series for my day bag. The lower volume and what you are saying makes the Luminary seem like it just makes more sense.

  21. Question about carrying a bag in a bag

    I have a very bad back and shoulders and can't do single shoulder bags at all so I was thinking that I want to do a single bag backpack, but none are small enough for my shoulders to carry all day...

    Thanks for the perspective! I really can't decide between packable and organization. Maybe if I added a Freudian Slip to the DLBP? I can see that doing really well at seminars as well.

    BigBadD, I was wondering about that because it could slip in a WF pretty easily and still stand alone as a travel bag itself for quick trips, but I was worried the straps weren't hearty enough for...

    I don't know if anyone has said this yet, but a smaller version of the Brain bag!!! I ADORE the front pockets on the brain bag. They are so much more usable for what I carry than the Synapse bags,...
