    My Synapse 19

    I have been lugging around a Brain Bag most days for 7 years, and finally decided to scale down my load. I ordered a Synapse 19 and it came today, it might be a little small for what I need, but it sure is a gorgeous beast:

    After I ordered the Synapse 19, I went a little crazy and ordered a bunch more stuff, including a Synapse 25. The other items should arrive tomorrow. I'll post a picture of that stuff when it gets here.

    I'll also post a picture of what I will generally fit inside the 19 on a typical day. Although the thing is small, it can hold a lot of stuff!

    The S19 is an awesome bag. I have been using it as my EDC for months now and I love it. It seems small, but it expands to your needs. I am sure you will enjoy it. It forces you, in a good way, to be organized. I will be now switching back and forth, depending on laptop carrying needs, with my freshly received (today) Co-Pilot, but for heavier loads, it will be the S19. It is a very well-balanced and comfortable backpack. I can't wait to see your future photos!

    I got my next shipment in today, doesn't it suck when you get the delivery confirmation email when you are stuck at work?

    I figured I would post a quick pic, I'm not much of a photographer, but I'll work on getting some better pics. There is all kinds of accessories and such, but the highlights are a steel dyneema Synapse 25, black dyneema Pilot, and a Cache for each of my 2 Thinkpads.

    What a haul! Two boxes worth even. I'd be in bag heaven. I'm sure I'm not the only one that would love more photos. Those two are pretty dang good.

    It is spring in my part of the world, which means I spend lots of time hiking, bird watching, mushroom hunting, and / or picture taking somewhere outdoors. Today I was walking along the river and came to a boat ramp. I took the following picture of my S19. Most days I carry my S25 because I can fit my laptop and lots of other stuff with it. However, when I don't need to carry the laptop, the S19 works perfectly.

    Thanks for posting a side-by-side of the 19 and the 25. I had the worst time deciding between the two and ultimately chose the 25. I think I made the right decision, but i won't know for sure until I get my hands on it.

    Congrats! And welcome to the Forum, @andejoan. My first TB purchase was an S19 and I loved it....but eventually also bought an S25 for when I need to carry more. I don't think you can go wrong either way... and, in any case, their return policy is excellent.

    Taminca, if you can find my thread from 6.12.13 titled Synapse 25 arrived. I posted a couple of photos of my steel/uv S25 and my uv/steel S19. They might be of interest to you.

    Found it! Moose, I cannot believe you have a UV/Steel Dyneema S19 and a Steel/UV Dyneema S25... Magnificent color coordination worthy of my utmost admiration and envy! Gorgeous photos, too. And the discussion on that thread might have been what prompted TB to release the Synapses in Nordic/Solar (my current obsession), so thanks!
