    And in line with my comments a little earlier... Synik 30 in Aubergine / NW Sky just ordered.
    Deep Blue / Coyote was tempting, but Aubergine just looks so good.

    Agreed that aubergine is a really lovely colour. It's not bright purple, but isn't plain and "boring". And for me it works equally well for personal travel and leisure, as well as in business...

    I’m sure the info was shared in a much earlier post, but struggling to find it... What size cache fit into the Synik 22 and 30 main compartments?

    As the main compartment will be a touch bigger...

    To me the logo is fine, it’s part of the bag. For aesthetic reasons I personally do prefer it centred - unlike on the new Synik, but that’s not a big deal. I have no problem to publicise products...

    Thanks. I had overlooked that the halcyon was different for interior and exterior. So far I have chosen my Tom Bihn bags based on exterior material and colour, and some have halcyon and others...

    Same situation and very happy with 525 ballistic exterior for everyday bags for a bit some structure/rigidity than halcyon, but still good flexibility compared to 1050 ballistic.

    Interested...

    Same reaction. The new logo position does look like an after thought. Personally prefer the traditional position, and happy to have it prominent.

    I love Tilley hats, especially the airflo. Thanks for the post, I had not seen they had a recycled mashup version.

    Thanks Cristina, I do appreciate your feedback and agree that the luggage handle pass through is deep and, by its very purpose, slim. But for me, I was not looking for a useable pocket but somewhere...

    That’s a good suggestion. I also would not use it as a luggage handle pass through, but using this space with a zipped bottom to slip a newspaper or magazine would be great.

    Looks to be an interesting new bag. Maybe I missed it somewhere, but I am curious what is the origin of the Synik name?

    I use the UPS shipping to France which is $45 fixed rate - so my flawed logic is always to buy more for better value! On top, French import duties are always applied but seem to vary each time, but...

    Fully agree with previous posts. Tom Bihn bag design for quoted litre capacity seems to be fully useable and able to actually carry that bit more compared to other brands quoting the same volume. I...

    The Brain Bag is great for work trips, as I like that the two big compartments can separate work and personal items. I agree that the Brain Bag is an acquired taste from size and form, but it quickly...

    Just tried and my size 8 hiking boots just fit one into each end compartment of Aeronaut 30. But it’s tight fit and will depend on ankle height and rigidity of your hiking boot material.
