    Vertical Freudian Slip - fit in a Synapse 25?

    Description specifically states it works in Brain Bag and Smart Alec. However it does not say anything about the Synapse 25 (or 19 for that matter).

    Does anyone have the combination and can you confirm whether it is a good fit.

    Thanks!

    I believe Darcy has said that it does not fit in the Synapse. The top corners of the VFS interfere with the bag closing properly. They are/might be looking into a redesigned version that would work in the S25, but there was no ETA on that.
    Own: Aeronaut 45 (Navy/Iberian), Aeronaut 30 (Steel/Ultraviolet), Night Flight (Coyote/Steel), Guide's Pack (Steel), Synapse 19 (Olive/Steel), Daylight (Navy), Aeronaut Packing Cube Backpack (Wasabi), Founder's Briefcase (Black), Pilot (Steel 400d/Steel), Co-Pilot (Black/Iberian), Side Effect (Black/Ultraviolet), Travel Tray (Iberian), various cubes, pouches, sacks, and straps

    Want: EVERYTHING.

    Technically it does not fit. As has been noted the corners of the Freudian slip press against the top of the synapse where it begins its curve to the top. If a situation demands it, you can use the system, but it may put a bit too much stress on the fabric, weakening it over time. I used a FS and a synapse 25 for a little while before returning the synapse - decided I preferred the Smart Alec for a bag that size. (The FS definitely will not fit in a synapse 19.)

    Thanks to the both of you. Ordering a S25 today but not the VFS.
