I really, really love those 2, by themselves and as a pair, they are wonderful.
I have used the S19 since 2011 and the FJN since it came out.
For quite some times, I have not felt really strong and have travelled only by car, with my very light LSB. Fitting cubes, SE, PCBP, FJN, even an SCB inside was no problem.
Feeling better and with the weather turning rainy and/or cold, I decided to get back to my usual fabulous EDCs for 2 really nice meetings.
Meeting 1: chairs, no desk, furious note taking.
I tried to D.I.Y a light notetaker with the FJN hard plastic leaves and various means of keeping them and paper together.
I then checked the S25 page and found the new, to me, video about the S19 vs S25.
I watched it many times without and with the music.
I also checked many of the packing pictures of the S19 and realized that I had packed it all wrong, for a long time.
I packed some of my loose EDC stuff in two Travel Stuff Sacks size 1 and placed them in the side pockets. My iPad Mini in its netbook Cache in the elastic pocket, I opened the main compartment wide, placed my wind breaker at the bottom as a widening and cushioning device, then placed a 3D Cube and the FJN vertically instead of horizontally and it all fits.
That system will enable me to fit an LP for paperwork.
With the SCB, the S19 was perfect for the venue. I wanted to take notes and the FJN alleviated perfectly the uncomfortable down sloping caused by writing on one's lap.
I placed the TB bags on the chair next to me, opened the S19, took out the FJN, placed its strap in a supporting role and started to concentrate on the room layout.
I was thirsty and found a little milk carton that stays good for long in my bottle pocket. I took a couple of sips before the panelists sat down.
Very productive evening!
Meeting 2: training, even more furious note taking, desk available.
I bought a 2 holes punch, solid new old stock in metal. So now, I can punch any paper to fit my FJN.
In addition to really nice fountain pen friendly paper from TB, I have included pages from a Rhodia notepad and suitable for pencil/inkroller/rollerball and gel pen printer paper.
I don't need much leaves of paper for each meeting, I just have to remember to refill the FJN before each one, and punch the non TB paper ahead of time.
Taking notes with the FJN is exactly the way I imagined I could do so, many years ago when I was taking notes outdoors or in conferences with various setups in letter or 3 x 5 size, one too bulky to be comfortable, the other to small for my handwriting size.
A well organized S19, fitted with Dyneema accessories can accommodate my FJN easily.
I have to admit using the SCB as "the bag which carry the things that must be handy right away" and extra pens in the PP and the long KTP.
