    I think I found your problem LOL! That have-haul philosophy can't be doing good things for your less-is-more requirement.

    Idano, how big is your big camera stuff? You should give the 30 a try. My friend switched from a 40L ebags bag to a synik and it fit the same gear.

    She says the sprout is adorable, but it's still 10L, which is double what she wants. She suggests: Sproutlet, Bean Sprout, Brussel Sprout.
