When I worked in IT, I carried my MacBook Pro, iPad, camera, notebooks, papers, keys and more in a Tom Bihn Smart Alec. The bag was big enough that I could even carry a second laptop when needed. When I left my IT job, I suddenly found myself needing a lot less from a bag, and switched to carrying a MacBook Air and a few papers in a Timbuk2 messenger bag. Then, following the Timbuk2 messenger bag, I wanted to go back to the flexibility and comfort of a backpack
As a travel bag — This one is the kicker! I was AMAZED at how much stuff I was able to pack in for a 3 day/2 night air travel trip. I brought plenty of clothes, including; a pair of jeans, a huge sweater, 3 shirts, and PJ’s (featuring a really heavy pair of fleece pj pants because I was worried about traveling to actual winter climates). I even had room for a pair of sneakers in the bottom pocket! (For reference I wear a size 6 shoe.) Not to mention all my toiletries, make-up, jewelry, snacks, and misc
The large pocket of the Synapse 19 — like most Tom Bihn Bags — is extremely flexible. Tom Bihn’s Cache laptop sleeve is a great fit for the Synapse 19. I picked up one of the company’s Cache laptop sleeves, which clips into the bag on a rail system, making it easy to slide the whole thing out when needed. The Cache laptop sleeve works on a rail system inside the Synapse 19, so pulling out a laptop is a piece of cake
Anyone who loves a good hike. Anyone who wants to sail through their commute, or airport security, or a nearby trail.
Installing the zipper tabs is easy and getting used to the center water bottle pocket isn’t too bothersome.X-Factor: 3 of 5 — Nothing super fancy to write home about. But a well-known brand with good quality products.Thanks for reading and as always, please comment below or drop us a message on our Facebook or Instagram if you have any questions or suggestions!
