    I have a Monster Truck and totally love it. To get an idea of real-world usage, I think of each of its three compartments as about the size of a plastic grocery bag. If it is absolutely stuffed it'll...

    Mesh 3DOC

    Does anyone know if the mesh 3D cubes will be making a comeback? Or, if anyone happens to have one sitting around in any color other than green and doesnít want it any more, let me know. :)

    Funny that you mention this, I just ordered some magnetic clasps and will be trying them out. Adhesive ones and then sew-on ones if the adhesive ones don't stick well enough.

    It'd fit easily into the "chin" pocket, though, or the mic case in one side pocket and the accessories in the other. (I have just pulled a 7"x5"x4" cable case out of my Synik's side pocket so I know...

    Just out of curiosity, can you just leave it in the Synik full-time? So when you need to record something you grab your backpack and not worry about packing anything? All of this would fit in one of...
  6. Sewing the Halcyon lining of the Synapse/Synik?

    I have a Synik 30 and totally love it, with the exception of a few small issues. One is the inside pocket (the pouch along the top lining of the main compartment). Every time I open the pack to slide...

    The ghost whales and mesh pouches don't have the depth the SC does. I do love the ghost whale in the side pockets of the Synik, though!

    Turns out that camera insert isn't going to work, but still...

    The SC's double-sided, see-through layout is what really appeals to me; a bit of a bummer because I don't believe Tom Bihn has something similar in a smaller size. Although I am (gasp!) open to other...

    A smaller than small Snake Charmer

    If you have a larger Synik/Synapse and a small Snake Charmer, you know it fills about 2/3s of the "chin" space. But is there a Snake Charmer-like accessory which would (individually) fit this...

    I bought a few of these—they're not here yet—and coincidentally a friend dropped off a few based off the same design (maybe not the same pattern). Up until now I've been using a pleated-style...

    I have a Synik 30 and although I love it quite a bit I have the same “one strap carry” issues. It’s a combo of the strap being slick, its connection point at the top of the bag, and its proximity to...

    I prefer low-profile, black bags, but if Iím checking them or otherwise would like to easily identify them, I use gaff tape.

    Gaff tape is a little like duct tape, but it has a matte cloth surface...

    I really like the Ghost Whales for my Synik; I have two large ones (not the A5), one for each external side pocket. I usually keep things I *don’t* access regularly in them, so when I reach in each...

    There's a limit to how high you can wear the Synik, because the straps come together at the body fairly close. I've tended to wear my backpacks lower in the past; I like wearing the Synik higher...

    I canít answer about long-term durability, but Iíve owned a Synik 30 for a little over two months and the straps concerned me at first as well. The nylon that covers the foam padding is thin and will...

    There is great advice in this thread. I'll say that I had the same concerns as far as sizing when I researched the Synik, and I'm thrilled to have picked the 30. The 22 would be a challenge and...

    I have a Synik 30 and a 15Ē MacBook Pro. In practice, getting the laptop in the compartment is much easier than it appears on video. It slides in easy and is quick to ďtuckĒ into place. Getting the...

    This is incredibly helpful, thanks! Itís interesting to see the side vs rear profiles. The Synik comes off as pretty massive from the rear but you can see how well it carries from the side.

    Thanks Bartleby! I’m curious to see how the width fits you. I currently use a North Face Overhaul; it’s width sits right at a foot or so and feels perfect on me. I know the Synik says it’s 13” across...
  21. Any Synik 30 photos in EDC use by taller folks?

    I realize this is a really, really specific ask, but I figure if there's any place to check it'd be here. :D

    I'm very interested in the Synik 30 as a one-bag solution to a lot of my needs, but the...
