    Is the Synik 30 too large for your needs? It is too bad the Smart Alec has been discontinued, that is my favorite "one bag" option. Pack it, tuck the camera gear (preferably m43 as mentioned above)...

    This is interesting, because I'm the same height and found the S25 supremely uncomfortable, but the S19 is perfect. On the other hand, the Smart Alec is also very comfortable for me, but the shaping...

    My thought on this is what you will be wearing it with. My favorite winter coat is a deep royal plum color, and it clashes HORRIBLY with Aubergine. For this reason, my primary carry backpacks are...

    I would looooooooove to see something with the size of the PCSB but a bit more structure like the Side Kick. Or, as I often request, a Horizontal Small Cafe Bag. I do have a somewhat unique use case...

    Left shoulder to right hip is how I carry my PCSB, and it is definitely not ideal with the new strap placement. With the original bag, I could leave the zipper open and work in and out of it easily....

    I should clarify, it's not that the pull puts pressure on the zipper in a worrisome way, just that it makes the line of the zip not stay straight, so it is more difficult to zip open/closed a bit, or...

    I received my new Black Ballistic PCSB on Friday (yay!) and I love it! Unfortunately, what I do not love is the new placement of the shoulder strap attachments. In the original design on the ends,...

    I swear sometimes USPS is just like "nah, I don't feel like it" and just doesn't bother with pickups or deliveries. I'm surprised they skip something as relatively large as your company pickup,...
