On my lifelong quest for the perfect bag, this is a contender
I have several Tom Bihn bags and love every one of them. The Synik 22 is a great addition to my collection. I have taken it on 3 trips so far.
- 3 day 2 night work trip where it was my only bag. Was perfect size for my laptop, clothing, toiletries, snacks. I am a veteran one-bagger and have a work capsule wardrobe that works well with one bag travel. The S22 did not disappoint. The best part of this trip (flew from Bay Area to Seattle) was I got to stop into the TB factory and see where the magic happens!
- 5 day 4 night cross country flight for a beach vacation. I paired it with my fjallraven Totepack No 1 Small and my TB Side Effect. This is the ideal bag combo for me and covers any scenario I could encounter. The Side Effect goes into the Totepack or the Synik for daily carry depending on how much I need with me. I fit both the Totepack and the Synik under the seat on one of the flights. In the other flight, the Synik went into the overhead bin.
- 5 day 4 night beach vacation by car. Since travel was by car and space was not at a premium, I paired the Synik with my TB Pop Tote and Side Effect. The extra space in the Pop Tote allowed me to pack beach towel and warmer clothes for typically chilly West Coast summer beach weather.
I agonized over whether to get the Synik 22 or the Synapse 25. I went with the Synik due to the height of the bag (I am 5.5 115 lbs). While an extra 3 L might be nice to have for a bit more flexibility, since I tend to pair it with a second…
