    Same as every year. An actual laptop backpack.

    The smaller Synik can't take a laptop big enough, the larger one is too big. The Synapses tend to be over-done for just a commute bag, with too many...

    I actually got to see/have the Trinity demoed by Tom himself, though that was quite a while ago! It's one I'm looking forward to. I really liked the Stoway's general shape and capacity, though the...

    Perfect explanation, thank you :)

    I imagine I would pack my laptop charger either on the bottom outside pocket, or in the main compartment. which would help.

    Ah that wasn't a question :) I was at the factory and immediately picked-up on the larger pockets vs. my S25 (from 2016). This makes me happy.
    I don't carry a ton of smaller things; I only have my...

    Sneaky question: are there any plans to do something similar with the BB?

    Alrighty; I'm definitely still hoping I get selected either way, those seem like awesome improvements to the S25! Thanks for responding :)

    Two of my Synapse complaints:
    * The bag mostly falls down when set to the ground; a frame sheet improves chances of it standing-up, but not always. This looks addressed here, correct?

    Yep, I saw the RB36 at the factory and commented on exactly the same: it's essentially an A36 without the straps.

    I became an Aeronaut 30 convert.

    Without having had one, I always felt the A30 would be too small and the A45 too big, if only because I had plenty of 30L Travel bags.
