    When traveling domestically, I use a Side Effect which fits in the vertical water bottle pocket or the main compartment...honestly, usually the main compartment. I like it because it's a little...

    I've put a pair of shoes in there (just in shoe covers, no fancy shoe cube). The PCSB also fits if packed properly. Otherwise, a side-effect and a few extra things go well there.

    I believe the...

    Love that Benchmade--one of the all time great EDC knives ever made.

    That's also an interesting makeshift wallet.

    Got back from an overnight trip with my Synik and I'm thinking it was just the way I had the bag set up last time. I had the straps cinched up pretty tight and a lot of weight in the bottom outside...

    Just got the note from Matthew--extremely responsive customer service!

    Ah, it might just be the extra inch. I've had a lot of success with the side access (the only one I use) with my Lenovo Thinkpad (14") and an iPad Pro in the compartment at the same time. And while...

    I have both the A30 and S30.

    I do prefer carrying the A30 as a backpack or by the top handle. I use the absolute strap sometimes, but don't find it to be that comfortable when loaded up. And...

    NICE! This method is far easier than the kludge I used. It's one of those situations where you wish you had thought of that yourself.

    In case anyone was wondering how the Synik 30 fits on rollaboard handles (as I feared that the bag might be too tall to go through all the way). It happens to fit perfectly on the Rimowa Cabin and...

    Yep--this is what I was going for. Optionality is a win.

    I didn't even realize my Aeronaut came with a chest strap...I must have removed it that quickly.

    I have a tile slim and it fits the Minimalist wallet. Indeed, the #4 is the version you want (and the one I also got for that very transit reason). I actually don't carry my minimalist wallet--went...

    The adding of the oring is the challenging part. But you can use a wire dopp or a Magpul Daka in there and it's fine.

    Back to the OP, thank you for this comparison. I also have a 34L GR2 that I...
