In a couple of weeks I'm going to add a Brain Bag to my collection. I saw one in the shop a few weeks ago and was just stunned at its carrying capacity, and thought, "Why didn't I look at this bag before?" I was so busy falling in love with my Synapse 19 and my Smart Alec, I never took a second look at the Brain Bag. But I think it will be a great camera bag when traveling, and possibly even a workable replacement for my wheeled luggage (depends on how strong I get! hurrah, TRX).
The question is: with having fibromyalgia, the weight of my luggage is an important issue. I'm trying to go as light as possible, which is why I almost always get Dyneema. I'm looking at the Brain Bag's page and the weight (2 lbs 14oz) is listed for the Parapack. Is the Cordura version much heavier than the Parapack version?
