Can the Synapse 25 be your "personal item"?
Going over plans for flying to California, and wondering if the Synapse 25 would be a good personal item bag for the flight.
I have my Synapse 19 that I love, and I know that can work beautifully as a personal item, but I think I could use the extra room the 25 could provide. But is it too big to call a "personal item"?

Lightly Packed Aeoronaut and Synapse 25 - No Problem on US Air
I had no problem flying a US Air Shuttle from Washington National Airport to LaGuardia NY and back again this weekend. This was my first "no check" flight. I put my electronics and camera in the Synapse 25 and carried a lightly packed Aeoronaut. I practice packed for the first time in my life.
Everything went smoothly. I've never carried on gels or liquids before but the 3:1:1 bag made it easy.
So, yes you can carry a Synapse 25 and the Aeronaut and I saw people carrying much bulkier bag combinations in the US with no problem.
The stated limit for carryon with US Air was 40 lbs. And of course the bag was supposed to fit as others have described - in the test station and below the seat and/or in the overhead. :)
My first trip with Tom Bihn bags. And on the trip back - my bags looked so good they screened me in first class! Perhaps they couldn't read my iPhone app boarding pass properly...
