Photos: Synapse continues to surprise

Posted by Jon 'Geo' Camp in the TOM BIHN Forums:

"TIL (Today I Learned) just how handy those side pockets on the Synapse are, and how much attention went into their design.

After 5 months of ownership, and always taking off the backpack to access the sides (since this is how every backpack I've ever owned had been) I was thinking about the backpack and how I see everyone else here in Japan with their shouldered-bum-bags (fanny packs?) and how they just swing them over and have access.

Today I learned that by swinging the backpack under your shoulder, the side pockets are the EXACT SHAPE to pull open with one hand, grab whatever you need, and close again. Mind = BLOWN."
