    I love ballistic, hate cordura. I don't like the feel, the way it picks up dust and lint, looks too casual, etc.

    I have a Tri-star and Co-Pilot -- love the ballistic. Returned a Smart Alec because I didnt like the cordura part (and wasn't crazy about the shape). I would jump on a larger synapse in ballistic. That would be great!

    I have many bags in Cordura and they don't feel too casual, my beloved late cat shared the house with my first Cordura Brain Bag.

    I also have not experienced Cordura picking up lint and dust in many different places, in all kind of weather, my Cordura Large Cafe Bags even managed the yukky under seat area of the airplane.

    I don't know if very curvy, small pockets Tom Bihn bags can be made of Cordura, have you considered Dyneema?

    Exactly! I bought a Brain Bag but had to return it because it started attracting dust and lint almost immediately after removing it from the shipping box. I really want a back pack and if this new Synapse is made out of ballistic nylon I will be buying one for sure!

    That elicited a genuine micro-squee.

    Does it have a name yet? If not, can I suggest Synapse of Hugeness?

    I am looking forward to the specs - at 25L capacity, I'm really interested in seeing how this looks against the Smart Alec.

    Alright -- someone here guessed something that's almost certainly going to be true about the (working title) bigger Synapse. How's that?

    I KNEW IT!

    You really are going to call it the Synapse of Hugeness! Adding it to my forum signature now....

    Miss Darcy means the name for the Daddy Synapse must be Transmitter or Neuron! He, he, ha!
