jppreston: Round the World with a Synapse 25

“This is what is going into my Synapse 25 for my upcoming trip around the world. As I mentioned in my review, the S25 is the perfect travel backpack. Everything goes in with a little room to spare.”

Synapse at the top of Mt. Fuji

“From the top of Mt. Fuji with the sunrise in the background — a friend used my Tom Bihn Synapse to help supplement a larger hiking-specific pack for the climb. Filled to capacity, extremely comfortable, and my friend’s first experience with Tom Bihn!”

roadpotato: Synapse 25 Maiden Voyage

Synapse 25: Maiden Voyage

“Here’s an initial review of my first adventure with the steel dyneema/wasabi Synapse 25. Shout out to dorayme for her wonderful comparison shots of the 19 and 25. I do a week or less trips, at least twice a month and a total sucker for backpacks. I can manage with a 15 liter pack for a 2-day trip. The cavernous S25 was perfect for the 3-4 days mix of business and leisure. I believe I can do a week with just the S25 (excluding cold weather areas).”

Eugene Eric Kim: Bags for Micro Four Thirds Cameras

Tom Bihn Bags for Micro Four Thirds Cameras

“I’m brand loyal to very few companies, but one of them is Tom Bihn, a Seattle-based company that makes beautiful, functional bags. I bought my first Tom Bihn bag in 2008, and I have consistently bought new bags (for different purposes — these things are designed to last forever) approximately every two years. I also have a boatload of accessories. They are not cheap, but they are high-quality, they look great, and they are superbly functional. I cannot recommend them highly enough.”
