    Your favorite TB Synapse 25 accessory?

    I'm going to treat myself to a few accessories for my black cordura/wasabi Synapse 25. There are so many options, what are the most versatile options? I'm thinking of a 3D organizer and a travel sack, probably #2 size. I absolutely love this backpack. I'd like an Aeronaut next

    For the S25, the Snake Charmer is a perfect fit for the lower outside compartment...

    I really like the 3D Mesh Organizer Cube. That can fit alongside an all fabric cube or a clear cube in the front bottom pocket of the Synapse 25 with some room to spare. I use the S25 as my travel bag and use the front bottom pocket for toiletries(clear cube) and a first aid kit (mesh cube).

    Do folks use the Snake Charmer for other than charming snakes? I eye it frequently but can't figure out how to use one as I'm not transporting cables.

    I ordered a Black Dyneema/Wasabi Side Effect this morning (along with the 2013 mystery gift) to go into the front lower pocket of my Synapse 25. Then I can use it separately as a smaller bag outside of the Synapse. I found a rectangular mesh container from an older backpack that is similar in size to the snake charmer so I loaded that up with cables, power supplies, etc. and placed it in the inside pocket of the main compartment. Works pretty good! Now I need to get a few travel stuff sacks next

    I use my Side Effect for this as well. Also have small stuff sacks (which are great for socks, etc...) and the mesh packing cubes which are also nice additions.

    I'd have to say my favorite accessories are the mini organizer pouches. One is padded for the earphones, the clear cover version has my ID and charge cards, and the regular dyneema ones have other little items I'm using.

    The S25 is a great bag, but for organization freaks like me its all about accessories.

    As mentioned in another post, attaching a Side Effect in the main compartment (to the O-rings) is wonderful.
