Synapse and what organizers and Dyneema stain resistance?
My wife and I will both be getting Synapse bags this spring for traveling, but I had a few questions. One of the main reasons we picked the Synapse was for the organization but we we're wondering what people have found for small organizers that work well? Small stuff that I'd feel better if it was clipped into the main pack portion, like memory cards or jewelery and such. We don't have a lot of stuff like that, but I'm reserving the outside pockets for pens and such that are easily replaced and not expensive. I've found I prefer to have small lights and such in a small pouch rather than loose in an outside pocket.
I had actually considered the Smart Alec, but I'm concerned it won't fit the personal item profile as easily, as we plan to travel with a Synapse and Aeronaut each. My other thought was a SA and a Co-Pilot but I'm not a fan of single straps and it needs to fit my compact DSLR.
I'll pick up a few retainer straps as well.
Also, how does Dyneema clean up? Does it hold and show the dirt? Most all of my other stuff from makers like Kifaru or Mystery Ranch is all 500 or 1000D.
