Time to resurrect this thread - I'm wondering about the ultrasuede pocket. Are they the same colour in every bag? I just got my Indigo/Solar Synapse and I love it ... *except* for the red/orange (is it cayenne?) ultrasuede pocket, which is my LEAST favourite Tom Bihn colour. <shudder>
Is the ultrasuede the same colour on every Synapse?
Pretty sure it's the same in all of them. My wife and I each have a Synapse (one plum, one navy), and the ultrasuede pocket is Cayenne in both.
I have an Imago and both of the Ultrasuede pockets are black. I purchased that bag some time ago, perhaps over two years ago. Still looks new too. :D Yay, Tom Bihn!
hello all: I finally got the Synapse for a friend of mine, and of course, I now love it! It feels almost like the more "grown up" version of the old Ruck's Sac (which I have, and which I love). It seems to be able to swallow up endless amounts of stuff and still be balanced.
Like someone else posted, my only suggestions would be to add an o-ring to the water bottle compartment so we can clip things there when not using it for water bottles. Considering it is so deep, I would love to be able to hang stuff there.
2. Repositioning the O-rings in the main compartment. When I have the cache there, and I try to hang pouches, it comes in the way and pokes a bit in the back.
Love it otherwise! And my friend is thrilled, of course!
Glad to hear it, Shiva! :)
