    Yeah. I got tired of bringing my Air Boss AND a messenger/camera bag. The Synik 22 performs double duty. When I get to my destination, the compression pack, dopp kit, etc. come out. I keep a rain...

    As carrot says, the Synik 22 is deceiving. When I got mine in December my GF said “You’re one-bagging it in THAT?” I then proceeded to do a test-pack and it did, indeed, fit all my stuff....

    Yeah. I did the whole DE razor, fancy soaps, brushes thing a few years ago. It was fun for a bit but became a chore.

    Now it’s just my Mach 3 and Cremo.

    Doh. I meant Synic 22. Thx.

    It’s the strap attachment location on the HLT that’s concerning me. I likely would only ever wear it sling-style.

    HLT shoulder straps

    Can someone enlighten me on the two shoulder straps that can be used with the HLT? I can see one has the waist strap style clip, and the other has the hook type.

    I went through the same thing. I’m 5’11” and 160 lb. I was agonizing between the 22 and 30, and went with the 22. This is for one-bag travel and “conversion” to daypack at destination. I’ve gotten...

    This is really helpful. Thanks for sharing. Many of us still carry actual cameras. I’m using a Fuji XE-3 with the 27mm pancake, similar in size to your Oly.

    Do you wrap your 45mm lens in anything?
