    Not silly at all, and you're exactly right: it's there so that certain smaller/shorter sizes of Brain Cell can clip in.

    Photo from a hike this weekend. It's awesome to be able to strap snowshoes to the front of the Smart Alec.

    Photo requests for Darcy, TB crew, or anyone in the wild with the necessary equipment:

    1) All dyneema version of the upper modular pocket, by itself or on a Smart Alec of any fabric or color. Either steel or nordic dyneema is fine for the modular pocket.
    2) Same as #1 but the lower modular pocket.
    3) For a really specific pair of requests: Nordic Smart Alec with at least one of the modular pockets in steel and then with one of the pockets in Nordic.

    I'm on the verge of ordering a Smart Alec or Synapse 25, and I'm leaning toward SA with modular pockets, but I want to see what the dyneema ones look like. Sight unseen, I think I'd go nordic for the backpack and steel dyneema for the modular pockets, but informed decisions are always better than uninformed ones!

    WOW, what a great video! If a backpack could ever be elevated to Rock Star status, it would be the Smart Alec!

    Well done, Tom Bihn crew!
