I thought it'd be good to start a thread dedicated to your questions about the new smaller backpack that Tom is designing named the Synapse.
I'll start off by asking myself a couple of questions I know the answers to (that's pretty easy.)
Q: What fabric will the Synapse be made out of?
A: Most likely the Synapse will be made out of 1000 denier U.S. made Cordura, just like the Brain Bag is. Tom is always finding cool new materials to use so that may change, but probably not.
Q: What colors will the Synapse be available in?
A: If the Synapse is made out of 1000 denier Cordura, it could (not will) be
available in the following colors: Sapphire, Olive, Plum, Cocoa, Black, Steel,
Crimson, Kelly, Navy, and...Cayenne. (More news on Cayenne soon!)
Ask your questions and either Tom or I will do our best to answer them.
P.S. Two new features Tom has just added to the Synapse will be announced in the email newsletter going out tomorrow morning. I'll post the news here after the newsletter goes out.
