An earlier version of the Synik. Photo taken in April 2019.
Over the past week or so, the updated pack design Nik has been working on for the past year has been (somewhat) revealed. It's named the Synik (here's why). The Synik is a version of our Synapse 19 / 25 backpacks that includes many of the features some of you have been asking for; we added some additional features as well, which include:
Full clamshell AKA panel zipper opening
Removable internal tie-down straps
Two-point access suspended laptop compartment
Our new Edgeless EV50 1/2” shoulder straps
Fully integrated yet removable internal frame with aluminum half-stay
Rolling luggage handle pass-through
Updated grab handle
Label moved to lower right corner
Timeline for release:
Pages for the Synik 22 and 30 go live. The pages will have an abundance of information -- description, specs, photos, videos, an FAQ -- to help you decide whether the Synik is the right bag for you (or not).
Pre-order opens / remains open until 08/20 unless either size of Synik sells out. See our Pre-Order FAQ if you're wondering how our pre-orders work.
Pre-order Syniks ship.
