IMHO I just found a serious flaw in the Synapse 25 :(
I had a water bottle accident today, and my water bottle leaked into the water bottle compartment. Not a huge deal I figured, because surely that compartment designed specifically for a water bottle is sealed.
Unfortunately it is not :( A small amount at the bottom of that compartment on the left and right opens up into the side pockets, and things in there got wet and destroyed.
Why is such a wonderfully made bag marred by such a small thing? Why didn't the compartment walls just go that 2 inches down?
