Good Evening Folks, this is my first post but I have been lurking around for a few months now. I finally pulled the chain on a new Synapse 25 and it recently came!!!! Mid November is when Tom Bihn said it would arrive, needless to say it arrived much earlier to my pleasant surprise.
My first thoughts are the organization and construction are excellent. Comfort is awesome too. My only complaint was the metal zippers...just not my thing. I was initially going to use the included pulls, but I decided to go the 550 cord route. Since the actual zipper is still gun metal I figured I'd show you my result. The cord is Black 550 Paracord and the knot is a Lanyard Knot. They work very well and I'm quite happy with this mod.
I also had an intriguing thought...has anyone come up with a way to insert a hydration bladder? There is a catch on the shoulder strap for a bladder hose so I'm assuming it's been thought of. I thought about adding a MOLLE hydration pouch from my military days via the gate keeper clips. Perhaps Tom Bihn will make a hydration pouch that has integrated gate keeper clips.
Thank you to everyone for the great info on these forums!
