    Cool Blue Indigo Synapse~Mt. San Jacinto, Southern California

    Spent the day with my wife and daughter in the beautiful San Jacinto Mountains in Southern California.

    San Jacinto Peak - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Had an amazing time and my wife was able to break in her new Synapse. She liked the pack, ALOT :) Love that blue! (Can I place my order for the new larger Synapse, yet?) ;)

    Off to the trail on a glorious spring day

    Look Mom! I think this is called snow!

    Beautiful pictures of the Synapse. My only slight criticism of the post is that the color of the bag is Indigo, rather than Sapphire. Indigo has vibrant, "royal purple" undertone that is not present in Sapphire although the color difference isn't easily conveyed in most website pictures. I have bags in both these colors, and my EDC is an Indigo/Solar Synapse. (May I compliment you on your good taste?). The Synapse has never been made in Sapphire -- only Indigo, Navy, and Nordic (400d Dyneema) among the blue colors.

    Whoops, good catch! (I'm a bit of a Tom Bihn newbie). I'll edit the post and see if Darcy can change the thread title. Still love the blue! It's amazing how much the blue "popped" with color. :)

    Good post. Brings back memories of backpacking there in the 80's.

    Great photos! We never made it up there on our trip to PS, but hopefully next time. And maybe some of that sunshine can work its way up to the NW...
