    Itís a great point, no-one has seen the bigger bags yet in 525. However i donít think the Synik is evidence that a bigger bag would be suited to 525. Iíve owned a couple of Synapse 25s in 525 and I...

    This is an interesting point but one I canít really correlate specifically to the 2 different TB choices. I think I understand that 525 is not half the durability of 1050, but the concern is less...

    Thanks @Moriond for the links, I had missed this thread. So a few thoughts based on Darcyís comments.

    Eco credentials - definitely worth the materials swap to 525. Canít argue with that.

    Exactly how I feel. Not sure 525 is up to the big bag potential abuse for travel.

  8. All bags changing from Ballistic 1050 to 525 - is that a good idea?

    When 525 ballistic came out I was thrilled to have a further ballistic option but in a slightly lighter version well suited to smaller EDC bags (Pilot, Synapse etc).

    But looking online today, it...

    Totally agree on steel being a great alternative to black. Itís conservative enough for those who need it and different enough (especially with something like Island or solar) to really stand out.

    Hiking poles attached to a synapse?

    Was thinking of doing some day hikes with my Synapse 19 (or 25) as I canít seem to lay my hands on a Guideís Pack.

    I guess I can tie my hiking poles with a quick release strap to the loop on the...

    I find the S19 bulges a lot more than the S25 (surprise, surprise, because it smaller). Therefore I subjectively feel a lot more through the back panel. I went back to using a frame sheet just for...

    We should not be flying

    This is definitely going to be a contentious topic as it gets right to personal choices people make.

    Cordura - Worn In, not Worn Out

    I've always been a bit of a fan of cordura as a fabric and its rustic casual style. But its not been my first choice as I'm a huge fan of ballistic for that more professional and durable look.
