    Must be summer/hot weather clothing. I've never been able to figure out how to get more than 2-3 days of winter/cold weather clothing into a bag less than 1800 cu. in., which rules out both Synapses...

    KEEP BOTH STEEL AND BLACK DYNEEMA!

    Why? Because then you can make the two-color-coded system of packing cubes where one color can be used for clean clothes (steel, I presume) and one can be used...

    If you're willing to forgo having a bag with organizer pockets for your laptop, go with a laptop sleeve. I got a Built NY sleeve for my MacBooks, and it is all the protection I need for carrying the...

    Hmm. If you mean a motorcycle helmet, there may be nowhere to hang it comfortably. A bicycle helmet would probably work okay because it is so light.

    There are two ways to hang my shoe pouch:...

    If you can hang your shoes off the outside of your pack (best inside of a packing cube or bag designed for the purpose), then the 19 would be fine. I do this frequently with my size 10 shoes, which...

    Awesome photos! I use #2 with the heavier milspec 550 paracord, which at 4mm diamter is so thick that it's hard to fit the double-ends through the top hole in the metal pull and even harder to fit...

    Yes, there are different diameters of paracord, indicated by how many fibers are in the core. The larger-diameter paracords are pretty soft when tied into handles, because they give more. The most...

    You can still convert a Cafe Bag into a backpack. I have a Large Cafe Bag with removable Absolute strap. This is not the same as the Absolute strap with metal clips on the ends, mind you. When I say...

    Yes, yes, yes! Great idea, and I've long wished for this. I have carried as much as 20lbs of steel tools in my LCB, and unfortunately, when taking that load off my shoulder, the grab handle bit HARD...

    Dyneema is frequently used in motorcycle pants/jeans to protect the rider from injury while sliding across pavement. You've unfortunately gotten to see a bit of that durability for yourself. Glad...

    I use an S-Biner to attach the Side Effect directly to my belt, thus avoiding having to use the shoulder strap or the waist strap. It's far more convenient to deploy than either approach. Your idea...

    Might be worth the trouble. At least if you run the experiment, you'll make sure the other pockets are devoid of objects. Better to find out what it really does now than later, when your valuable...

    Would a Synapse 19 in Dyneema work for you? It's lightweight enough that perhaps you won't mind having the extra 10 liters over and above the 9 liters that you asked for.

    Alternately, I suppose...

    That IS pretty cool organization in that eBag bag. You might be able to accomplish what you need with a Freudian Slip.

    I wholeheartedly agree. However, having it open all the way up would mean giving up the little O-rings on the sides that are positioned (ostensibly) for a key strap to make a little handle. I suppose...

    A great suggestion! Why not do BOTH? Sew an O-ring AND the clip together at each end (slightly larger fabric loop to secure both).

    This would give people more flexibility in daisy-chaining items...
