Dan with his Field Journal Notebook.
First let me say tat the flight back and forth there involved 5 flight transfers and on every flight (even on the smallest plane) the Western Flyer and Tri-Star fit underneath our seats. You might ask where did I put the Synapse 19on the planes? I placed it in the middle compartment of the Tri-Star (empty and flat except for Ipad Mini and a 2 phones and wires) and it fit perfectly. We did not did any heavy clothes since it is so hot there (except for a gown for the misses and long dress pants for me since we were in the wedding. All other dress clothing was rented for the occasion when we got there.
The Synapse 19 was the perfect bag for EDC as the jeepneys, vans, and Tricycles as they are all to crowded to be getting in and out of with a larger day bag. The packing cube backpack was used as our grocery bag at the markets and the shoulder packing cube was my wife’s only purse.”
“So far I have told you about the immediately measurable attributes of the Brain Bag such as size/volume, simplicity in design and the ability to get a straight black colored Brain Bag. However, the durability element had really been speculation based on reviews I read on the internet, and based on supposed typical use of the backpack. After over three years of being put through-the-ringer, I can confidently say that the durability of the Brain bag is superb. It has survived LSAT prep, numerous trips (usually the only thing I take when I travel), and most importantly 3 years of law school. It has withstood the attempted destruction of con-law textbooks and saved me the ire of being the full-blown-travel-luggage toting law student.”
“I’ll add a couple of other notes about the lower modular pocket that might not be obvious from these photos: First, even on the dyneema version, the bottom and “back”–the side that is against the Smart Alec–are black cordura to match the pattern of the Smart Alec itself. Second, there is a small pocket against the “back”, mirroring the inside pouch of the Smart Alec. Nice design touches to have the lower modular pocket mirror the main bag in such a way.”
“The Swift is the perfect Market bag. It looked so stylish, yet allowed me to carry many smaller purchases and items without feeling like a bag lady. In fact, the only thing that went into the shop bag was our pastries from Pirosky’s.”
