I am new here -- have been nosing around the forums where I could swear I saw someone say that a 15" macbook with retina screen fits in the synapse 19? But now I can't find it.
I see where the synapse 25 is recommended for 15" macbook, but I am hesitant to get a bag that large. I had knee surgery last year and I want to keep the bag as small as possible so I'm not tempted to overstuff it ha! Plus I'm 5'6 so on the limit for that too.
I'm thinking a backpack is the best way to keep the weight close to my body -- before surgery I was using a messenger style bag and it swung out one time and hurt my knee for days.
I will use it as carry on and for commuting with my macbook/charger/accessories plus water bottle and lunch being the main items in the bag. I may take it on some light hiking day trips too -- knee is finally on the mend yay!
Thanks so much for any and all advice!
