    Great to know!

    Seems the absolute strap is the OP/TECH Curve but with different buckles.

    That is useful for replacements for people outside the USA, and that mini SOS strap does seem like it...

    Very helpful. Thankyou!

    It looks like the raising of the hip belt location two inches (I measure my SN30 it's around 16" where yours is 14") will work great.

    Additionally It looks like a around...
  3. Help measuring S19/SN22 fit versus S25/SN30 (for gf)

    Hi, currently a very happy owner of a Synik 30 (and A45) and they both fit me great. My gf however has tried the Synik 30 and it's just too big for her, mainly on the strap placements on the shoulder...

    Mike in the shipping dept. mentioned they were in talks with UPS about this still, but this got interrupted by the covid situation.

    Picked up a small yeoman to act as overflow space. The small shop bag has been very good for this, but there have been a few times where a bit extra could have definitely been helpful (and the large...

    I'll add again to my love for the A45!

    During Covid, especially after my gf totaled our car (doh!) so all my trips are done on bike or foot currently, having the A45 has been a god send for doing...

    Bringing this back up! (I just emailed about it also, I just remembered I made this thread).

    Any news?

    Thought I'd add a little more of my experience with the bag.

    I did want it to be used for top-up grocery shopping as well as EDC and it has fit the bill. The clamshell open helps here.

    If I understand what you mean, yes it does have a sheen but it really takes on "dark" well to look more like a sort of cel-shaded appearance in the light that is very nice.

    Pretty much same here. If I do pick something else up in the future it will likely be a monster truck but not right now.

    I do think if someone is in the market for a Synik 30 though they should...

    This is exactly how I do mine too. I've tried a few different ways and this is the best one to reduce pull metal-on-metal noise to almost zero I find.


    As for removing as others have said, some...

    I'm 6ft and broad shouldered and I think the Synik 30 fits me for EDC. I think someone around 5'2" as you are may find it a bit too long for a comfortable EDC but I could be wrong.

    It's isn't...

    I would say Orange probably has this issue too, looking at the pics on the site I would never buy a bag that bright for EDC personally, but in person it is much more subtle and quite nice.

    Very nice. Is that after market strap (the white one) or is that an official Sinn one?

    I almost got a Sinn 900 a few years back but I found a watch that could display notifications too useful so I...

    The only thing I'm a little disappointed with is the travel tray.

    It's clearly well made, but I don't think the design fits using 210 ballistic, even though I really like the color:

    I just want to quickly add that people are right about the pics not really doing the Parapack justice, it is a really nice almost cel shaded style. I prefer the look and feel of it to 525, but we'll...

    I agree, it's a flat charge of $10 for brokerage + the tax and I have had lots of parcels sent via USPS and it's worked well. The tracking number from USPS can even be used on the Canada Post side...

    This is a bit concerning given the supposed deprecation of 1050 for 525 even on the travel bags.

    I wonder if anyone has experience checking bags made in 525 and could comment on scuffing there.
