They don't actually drain out of the bag they are open from the center pocket into the side pockets.
I never noticed them on my S19, but my S25 has them as well.
Synapse 25 (Steel Dyneema/UV), Organizer Pouches ( Dyneema, Cordura, Cork - various size & colors), FoJ Pouch, FoT Pouch, 2011 TB Mystery gift(Cork pouch), 2012 Mystery Gift (Forest/ Steel) Pocket Pouch, Sm Yarn Stuff Sack (UV), Small Shop Bag (Steel), Large Shop Bag (UV), Various Color Key Straps, Side Effect (Steel Dyneema/Wasabi)
I think the 'holes' are ports to pass through tubing for a water reservoir/bladder that would be housed in the bottle pocket.
Mine has two tiny holes, too. At first I thought it was a flaw, but they seem too symmetrical to be so. I am curious as to their function!
Apparently my Synapse 19 has them too. hmm

To be brief: they're supposed to be there. :)

Thanks Beau! That's cool information to know. I feel like an insider!
Though I'm a little disappointed they're not wormholes or rifts in the space/time continuum.

Thank you for the explanation. The symmetry of the holes suggested this was by design, but it certainly feels better to get confirmation of my suspicion.
Other than the gaps that's part of the design, I spotted a couple more holes beside it. About the size of the tip of the pen. What's it for? Some sort of marker?
