    That's the thing for me as well. While most of the Tom Bihn stuff is nicely swappable between carry styles (duffle, backpack, etc) I just want a really nice backpack version that can hold my laptop...

    The internal frame for the S25 is probably the only real interesting thing in this release. At least in my opinion.

    Ah, this makes sense. Basically the heavy part of the bottom is causing the bottom part to push against the middle and crunch together. Because the S25 has no structure on the back really it's the...
