    K_SA liked post by foodin65 On thread : The crazy amount of stuff I could fit in my Synapse!
    I used the end packing dude from the Areonaught. It fits horizontally along the bottom of the main compartment. Leaving more than half of the main compartment available for use. Note that the Mac...

    K_SA liked post by notmensa On thread : 'Locking' zippers on the Synapse
    Someone commented on the lack of 'lockable' zips on the Synapse. I thought I'd share some ways I've seen to 'lock' zippers on a bag - or rather make the zippers a little harder & more fiddly to open....

    Has anyone used the Synaspe as a "day bag" in Europe and had a problem with pickpocketer's? Planning a trip to Paris and I'm trying to take only an Aeronaut and one other bag that would be a "purse"...

    K_SA liked post by moriond On thread : Windbreaker/light rain jacket in dyneema pouch?
    I think dorayme's right that a travel stuff sack would work better than a large organizer pouch. The issue with using a large organizer pouch isn't the fit of the large pouch into the Imago -- it's...

    K_SA liked post by autolycus On thread : New travel stuff sack sizes relative to other bags
    I really appreciate the written descriptions of what will fit in each size of the new stuff sacks, but another take on it would be more useful to me: How much space does a full one of each size take...

    K_SA liked post by moriond On thread : Stuff Sack Advice
    Sorry about that. Well, I think the links I gave would still work for that estimate. For me, a size #3 Travel stuff sack would work to fit a down jacket, and evidently that's true for Lani, as well....

    As writes: A wider strap (at least the part that is in contact with your shoulder) is more comfortable than a narrower one. Adjust the length such that the bag doesn't hang below your...
