    Yeah! Here's a photo of the inside of the Synapse 25 that I took a couple of days ago...

    I also received my Synapse 25 (black/iberian) - sorry no pics. The color combo is really striking - first time I have seen it in person - and the quality is, as always, top notch. I did a few quick test packs for various situations. As I was playing with the new bag, it struck me that I might actually like my older Smart Alec a little better for the types of packing I tried (daily carry, 2 day trip for work (a clothing packed cube along with a laptop, toiletries and workout shoes), 4 day casual trip (clothing packed cube, toiletries, ipad, workout shoes). I will spend a few more days working with the bag to see if it is indeed a keeper for me.

    Update: a couple more trial packings - the bag is definitely growing on me. I find I like the slimmer profile holding the same amount of stuff. Access is easier since the main compartment opens about 2/3 of the way down as opposed to the top load of the SA. For anyone interested, a vertical Freudian slip fits nicely in the bag.

    Sooo beautiful, JD78. The Navy/iberian combo is stunning. I have the 19 in Navy/iberian and I LOVE it. I've preordered the 25 and after seeing your pics, cannot wait! Thanks for sharing!

    I love the dyneema lining and its use in the PCSB and PCBP and the like. I'm one who has hesitated on the dyneema exterior, though. However, I would be sorely tempted to try out a Nordic/iberian or Nordic/wasabi cafe bag or synapse.....

    Wow, that colour combination looks beautiful! Makes me almost tempted to change my order from Steel to that!

    Why does Tom Bihn have so many tempting products and colour combinations

    Darcy: I'm just wondering whether there is any difference between this new guardian light and the other one you have? Is it just the clipping that's different? Can the 'original base' one also attach to the Synapse 25?

    Thanks for your order! Let us know what you think when your Synapse 25 arrives (shouldn't be too much longer before it ships...)

    Thanks for the video Darcy, that's rather impressive.

    Would it be possible to provide a photo of how the whole bag looks like in that dyneema steel that's in the video? But in natural light? The stock photos have it looking a bit light, whilst in the video it looks darker, and it's hard to distinguish whether it's the 200d or 400d going by past photos from reviews/members.

    You can see what the Synapse 25 in 400d Steel Dyneema looks like indoors under photo lights and also in natural light in the Everyday video. In general, 400d Steel Dyneema (any fabric, really) is going to look different in different light. Even in real life, to your naked eye, the fabric is going to look slightly different in daylight, in fluorescent light, low light, super bright light, etc.
