    I got one of the first Syniks and I've been using it daily since I got it. It's not an issue. If anything people are more likely to complain about the zippers being too stiff and burly than too...

    I've been itching for an Guide's pack in Olive for a while, but I've never seen one come up.

    Hey Jroll. I've had a Synapse in the 525 material and I currently have a Synik in parapack. Parapack is personally my favorite, but those 525 Synapses are _nice_. If I were you, and you're...
