    At least for the Synapse (I don't have your other bags so can't verify), you can undo the strap, put the band on, and then rethread the strap through the keepers. Although you don't even need to do...

    Before strap keepers were a thing, I used Ranger Bands to wrap up and hold excess straps. They work really well and are much more cost effective if you need a large amount.

    I haven't been anywhere lately, but rediscovered this picture from last October. The deer of Miyajima, Japan can be pretty aggressive. This one was going for a bag of chips I had in my S25.

    I have a current Luminary; it was just too small for my trip. But I agree, if they could get the straps on the Synapse to feel like the ones on the Luminary that would take care of it for me.

    Having spent a week walking around a humid climate recently, I'd love to see lighter/more breathable straps and backing on the Synapses.

    I have an Olympus E-M10 which is roughly the same size as your Fuji (you can check the sizes here). It fits in a 3D Organizer Cube just fine.

    The S25 is great if I need to carry a change of clothes. Otherwise, the S19 works for me for everyday use.

    No need to worry. If you treat it like something you want to keep for a long time, you'll get plenty of good use out of it.

    I just tried this and it kind of works, but not as well as the S25 sheet. It's better than no frame sheet, at least.

    First off, here is a comparison of the two frame sheets:

    I use a frame sheet without a waist strap and the frame sheet is still worth having, IMO.

    New Cache with Zipper

    The updated Cache had kind of a quiet debut, so I thought I'd post some pictures.

    My cache fits so tightly that it's really difficult to pull the device out of it. Maybe add a strap to the bottom of the cache so that it can be held down while pulling the tablet out?
