    As promised, here are a few photos I took with my iphone of a French Blue Daylight backpack posing in sunshine. I included a photo of it stacked on top of a WF PCBP, in a Smart Alec with a lightly packed WF PCBP, and by itself in a Smart Alec. I also filled it with a PCSB turned vertically with a water bottle next to that, a folded fleece in the bottom pocket, a trade paperback vertically oriented in the top pocket, and a SE in front of that. I figured that would give people a basic idea of the sorts of things that would fit. If I were to retake the photos or repack the bag, I would have folded the fleece as a trifold as it fits better in the bottom section without sticking up so far. I only think that the pouches will accommodate a very light jacket, as my size small women's fleece filled the bottom pouch. However, I am sure people will come up with tons of ways to organize. I just wanted to post some photos fast for folks. Name:  Daylight10.jpg

    Here are a few more photos. I also included one with a few accessories, as well as a Marseilles blue French pan, just in case that helps people for color comparison. Name:  Daylight5.jpg

    @Ilkyway, it fits perfectly in the SA with room for a second clothing organizer (or smaller combination of organizers) with no problems. Of course, the SA always seems to easily handle more things than I imagine it will!

    It will be a while (but not too long) before I receive my French Blue DLBP, so I'm curious to hear opinions on comfort.

    1) Are the straps comfy even without padding? (I think PCBP owners would also know the answer, since the straps appear to be the same);

    2) How much "padding" do the tiered pockets add? Is it uncomfy to carry groceries (and other things in various shapes and sizes) in the pack without foam padding? We have zero need for jackets outdoors where I am, and I intend to use this as an add-on to hold stuff when I go shopping at the supermarket and elsewhere. Not too sure how it'll work out! I'll admit it-- I bought this bag because of colour and overall cuteness.

    I'd also be interested in these answers (I haven't bought the DLBP yet ). Degree of comfort with the webbing straps may depend on the weight and distribution of the load you are carrying, although the internal pocket design to hold items closer to your back may help here. it's also deeper than the PCBP (5.1" vs 3.5") so it can hold more, but again the comfort may depend on the weight of the items being carried.

    Thank you so much for the quick informative pictures. Your French Blue DLBP is lovely. I was excited to see that this pack fits nicely into the Smart Alec as that is my aim for the two bags on my next trip. 👍👍👍

    Ah, yes. I should qualify my previous question. How much can you carry before the straps start digging into your shoulders, assuming the heaviest items have been distributed evenly across the bottom? Am grateful for all current and future answers

I didn't ask about Gatekeeper clips + Cache with Rails, but from the pictures, description, and from the factors behind the design given on the product page, I would guess that this backpack does not use Gatekeeper clips and the rail design for caches in the interior. Instead, it seems to me to be a very light-weight backpack that extends the idea of the Packing Cube Backpack made in more durable 400d Dyneema, but shaped to work better and more comfortably as a backpack, and to provide some inside and outside pocket organization so that tablets and light laptops can be held inside in caches, with useful outer pockets.

    This is only my conjecture, however. There is also the option to offer this as a lightweight backpack in other colors (Cordura) as well as the 400d Black Dyneema. In the spirit of the lighter weight and more flexible design, since they stated they were not able to add the kind of Dri-lex foam backpad that is present for the Synapse, and now for the Smart Alec, I would assume they'd capitalize on optimizing the light weight design by providing a tiered set of internal pockets for padded caches rather than a rail design. Again, this is only hypothesis on my part.

    Judging by the photos, I see two on opposite edges of the interior upper pocket. You can probably safely assume one in the outside slash pocket. I would probably place one on the top of the interior much like the PCBP. The last one I would guess would be in the lower interior organization pocket.

    Great!! Thanks @itsablur! I was thinking if we would be able to hang a 3DPC or SE on top of it like it´s possible in S19/25 for example.

    From what you tell me, my guess is that will be possible!!

    Thanks again!

    Best photos EVER! And +1 for the Le Creuset color match! That's better than Pantone, LOL!
