    I think this is exactly what my husband needs!! He occasionally uses my S25, but always comments that he needs something to hold his laptop. Canít wait for the debut-maybe I can finally gift him a TB...

    It was a Halcyon A45. I’m going to try the internal frame to see if it helps. My load is limited by the weight I’m able to carry (not too much as I’m small) so the bowing out of the bag is more of an...

    I know this is an old thread, but I definitely have issues with he A45 bowing away from my back. I hate the way it looks so saggy and sloppy so I typically use my A30. I've probably used my A45 less...

    Thank you for that suggestion. I do cinch the straps with the sternum strap and it helps, but the straps still dig into my armpits a bit. I have another well-used S25. It’s a bit more comfortable...

    Backpack strap placement

    I just received a new S25 (non-Halcyon) and the straps don't seem comfortable to me unless I cinch them tightly to narrow them up. Even then, they're not super co fortable. I wonder if it's because...

    While I really like the look of the Black Halcyon, I've decided to get my S25 in Black Ballistic. I have ordered a Synapse in Halcyon and the gird was off just a bit (not straight). I completely...

    Haha. You mentioned three combos in your 'not so much' category that I like. Just goes to show you that everyone can find something to suit them from the various TB color offerings. But, also, you...

    I have even checked a Halcyon A45 on a trip from Dublin to California--no problems at all. I think you'd have even less to worry about with a Ballistic Bag.

    I'll definitely do comparison photos (a little later in the week though). You're right about the Ballistic still being a little co pressed from being shipped.

    Thanks so much for your input! I'm sure I could squeeze more in the Halcyon bag. Whether that's an advantage is a question since weight is an issue for me. I think I'll have to play around with both...

    A30 Halcyon vs Ballistic--same size?

    I have an older A30 in Ballistic that is with my daughter as she studies abroad so I thought I'd get myself one to use while she's gone. I ordered both Halcyon and Ballistic. The Halcyon seems to...

    Is there a trick to uploading pics? I've tried from both my phone and my iPad and uploads always fail. We used our S25 in Alaska and my daughter took an A30 and S19 to Budapest.

    Aeronaut 45 doesn't lie flat

    I have both the A30 (non-Halcyon) and the A45 (Halcyon). I love both bags, but tend to not use the A45 because it pulls way from my back when I wear it. The A30, however, lies very nicely against my...
