    Thanks, Moose. I agree about the diameter thing: I took my #2 stuff sack and jammed in a down jacket so the stuff sack was packed solid. It fit in the water bottle pocket of my Synapse 25 fine,...

    Synapse 25

    Brief first impressions: I have the original Synapse and have used it for some 2-3 trips but never really warmed to its size/layout. For me once I filled the side pockets everything was so jammed in...

    Wish list item

    An ultralight, ultra thin protective over-sack, like the pull-out rain covers on some camera bags. Something that folds up small that one can use to protect the Aeronaut, TriStar, etc. if the...

    Thanks, Katy. I've got both horizontal and vertical 6Z Brain Cells.

    Will the vertical Brain Cell fit in either or both the Ego or Super Ego?

    A protective cover for TriStar and Aeronaut

    I only travel with carry on baggage but admit to living in fear of boarding a flight late with my TriStar or Aeronaut (too big to fit under aisle seats on most United coach seats) and in the absence...

    Ego Question

    I use an ID daily but it could stand one small improvement that the Ego may already have.

    Durability is a factor too

    I've had at least two of those black plastic buckles break on me so far, one on an Empire Builder and one on an ID. I think one broke on my Cafe Bag as well, and I'm not hard on them at all. I now...

    Cache for MacBook Air, Brief Review

    I like it! It's lighter than the InCase neoprene sleeve I'd been using and seems more protective. The InCase always separated at opening, leaving a little bit of the Air exposed. The Cache is a...
