Any update on the synapse? Pictures? Colors? Due date etc.
Yes, when's it coming!! I need to see it before deciding on the new Smart Alec or not. :)
The answers to those questions (and many more) are not far off.
I used the Synapse again recently (on a long snowshoe hike). It's so comfortable, and the pockets are so incredibly useful.
The exterior of the Synapse will be 1000 denier Cordura so possible colors are: Plum, Black, Steel, Navy, Kelly, Olive, Pink, Storm, Crimson, Cocoa, Sapphire.
Any idea on the rough dimensions and/or volume? Will it have a single-color exterior?
As for dimensions/volume:
When will we be able to preorder? (Sorry if I missed it in the thread.) I'd like one in plum, please. :D
(I keep checking these forums just to see if it's been released. I so want one.)
I tend to agree about the solid colors, although I think it depends on the backpack design. The 2 colors on the Smart Alec makes sense to me, and having a multi-colored Buzz grew on me, b/c the design does lend itself well to the multiple colors (mine is black, steel, & red; I had wanted just black & steel but it wasn't in stock).
With an upper & lower pocket the way the volume explanation describes, it sounds like the Synapse might be better suited to a single color though (or a single exterior color with a different, lighter interior, like some of the bags have). And I'm kind-of a sucker for Cocoa -- never regretted that color choice for my Cafe Bag, and it might very well be my choice for the Synapse, although I'll have to wait to see pictures. I guess I like kind-of boring colors :) But mostly that's b/c I feel like I'm already pushing things casual-wise carrying a backpack to work, so having a fairly basic color is important.
I love the Cocoa too, but I think I'd like a new color this time because I use my Cocoa Imago everyday.
I agree about the lighter inside color. I'd also like to know when we can preorder.
Does the Dyneema come in a solid color? I may be the only one, but the idea of trying to find something against that dominant grid pattern makes my eyes cross already.
I still will want one in plum though. (I'm thinking lots of pouches will help.)
Thanks for the info. :)
Hm. I'd prefer it to not be lined with Dyneema because I don't like the look, but I'm assuming that if you guys do that, you'll have good enough reason to that I'll accept it =)
