So this bag we're talking about is the Synapse? Well, I like the name! That's a start. I really, really hope I like this bag. I fairly desperately need a new backpack at this point and if I could get one before I travel for Christmas that would be amazing (traveling through London, only one carry-on allowed; current backpack is terribly uncomfortable and imago is too small).
My imago is wonderful on a daily basis. Like mrae, if I'm carrying something to drink, I just stick it on top of everything (but I need to be careful that bag is closed tightly or it'll slip out!).
I'm really excited to see pictures of both the Synapse and the new Smart Alec.
Oh, and Happy Halloween!
