    There are a few, here's one, and here's another. But I love these kind of posts/threads so the more the merrier.
    Your newest additions go nicely with the collection. :)

    The Co-Pilot, Swift and Little Swift are my go-to-work bags; the Co-Pilot and the Synapse are my weekend bags. I only used the Imago a few times. I bought it to carry work files for off-site meetings, but it has not worked well for me.

    The Co-Pilot and Imago have absolute straps. However, I repurposed an adjustable should strap from another manufacturer, put a TB ultrasuede shoulder wrap on it - and use it with the Co-Pilot most of the time. When I add my GH2, 14-140 mm lens & spare batteries to the normal load I carry in the Co-Pilot, I use the absolute strap.

    All pouches in the photos go into my bag daily, except for the FOT pouch which I only take with me during work days (it carries an external hard drive). In addition to the pouches with their loads, my bags carry the following during the work week: lunch in stuff sack + 2 12-oz water bottles (1 for coffee, 1 for water) + other items from time to time (e.g. panasonic lx 5 camera, folded shop bag, light jacket, etc.).

    The large shop bag is my current gym bag.

    I use the packing cube shoulder bags as "pockets" for my Swift, small shop bag & large shop bag. The stuff sacks have many ways. I use a small stuff sack to carry soap, shampoo hair conditioner for the gym. I use the large stuff sack to carry gym shoes, flip-flops & wet towel/clothes post gym workout. I use a medium stuff sack to "wrap" my lunch. Knock on wood - lunch has not spilled yet. For shopping, the stuff sacks are great for separating items in glass jars, etc.

    The medium SOLAR stuff sack in the photo is VERY SPECIAL - a present from Katy & Brian. Thanks, guys!

    Finally, my OP collections are:

    Iberian passport pouch - this is my "just because" purchase. The small OP does hold a passport nicely, but I was curious about the passport pouch and had to satisfy my curiosity!

    Ballistic - medium forest, small FOJ navy, mini cardinal, steel pencil (for heavier stuff such as flashlight, mini tool, external hard drive, etc.)

    Iberian dyneema - large, medium, small, mini. These were among my first OP purchases. Then I tried the clear - and liked them so much better because I can see what is in them. I still like and use these pouches from time to time; I am just not using them for dedicated purpose as I do with my other OPs. I think of them as my all-around OPs.

    Clear Iberian dyneema - medium, small, hope to get mini one day (for hygiene kit, first aid kit, sewing kit)

    Clear Solar dyneema - medium, small, hope to get mini one day (for my edible emergency items - meds, candies, energy bars on weekends)

    Padded pouches) - medium (for my Samsung Galaxy tablet), MAC (battery charges & cords), small (couple lens filters), 3 mini (spare camera batteries, memory cards, card reader). I wish the padded OPs come in at least RED color in addition to the black. I will use the RED to keep drained camera batteries separate from the charged ones.

    It is great to be able to grab an OP that carries the stuff I need for the day!

    Sorry for the long post!

    It is just possible that my TB addiction has reached critical mass.

    ...well...of course...I don't actually own a TB Backpack yet, so...

    Dorayme I thought you of all people would help me in that transparent little bit of self-justification! ;)

    Really by definition, I guess the Tristar is a backpack as well. :(

    No more bags for Jeff...sigh

    Well, you don't have any dedicated backpacks. You have other bags that just happen to be designed so well that they have backpack options. You need a dedicated backpack to round out your collection, and all around knowledge of various types of bags done TB style :)
    As a matter of fact, I don't see any totes in your collection, better add a Shop Bag in that backpack order as well!
