    I love a good red bag, but if the mystery new color turns out to be a fabulous blue Dyneema, that would make me even happier. Hence more dithering...which is a bit ridiculous because I already have a...

    a new dyneema co-pilot?

    Will we be surprised about the Co-Pilot too? The steel dyneema seems to have gone away, and now I'm wondering if the Iberian one is soon to disappear. I obviously dithered too long trying to decide...

    You're right, I'll be (and am) happy: the navy Breve is lovely, and I do like "vintage." It also reminds me of a rather wonderful envelope bag I had many years ago that I used as a briefcase. I gave...

    Hi Walker,

    I have super-sensitive skin and I use either Badger or John Masters Organics on my face and Soleo Organics on arms, etc. Yes, they are more expensive than drugstore brands, but on me...

    Thanks, Walker, for posting the pictures! I understood you weren't crazy about the insert and thought it overpriced, but as you noted, it's the only one available at the right size. The one Domke...

    It was a rather extravagant purchase, but with good motivations. I usually travel with a RedOxx Sunchaser and either my Purple/Wasabi SCB or the Synapse. Hauling through the nightmare of the Miami...

    It was a good Monday morning

    Hi everyone,

    Okay, I'll get in the spirit of sharing. I didn't take photos of my Synapse in Ecuador or my new Co-Pilot loaded up as a camera bag, so when a nice TB box arrived at my office early...

    Hi darbs,

    For many people, the ingredient in sunscreen that causes allergic reactions is PABA. There are PABA-free sunscreens, but they do tend to be more expensive (or have zinc oxide). I know I...

    Hi. I got the Forest/Steel (but would have been even happier had it come in Forest/UV). In part, that was because I envision using it as a field bag off in remote locations, and the Cardinal (which...

    I just bought a Co-Pilot to use as a camera bag, but with a micro 4/3 system. The main compartment is only 2 inches deep (it could stretch a bit), so a full-size DSLR plus accessories would not fit...
