If some of the more popular brands like Evergoods, GORUCK, Tom Bihn, etc use more rugged and sturdy materials in their backpacks, why would someone buy from another, cheaper brand like Osprey or North Face?

Laptop

(1/10)

Sometimes it might actually be easier to just unzip this cache and remove your laptop from it, depending on how full the main compartment is. This all seems like a bit of an oversight from Tom Bihn, especially when you consider that this system is supposed to be used when going through airport security…AKA, when your bag is most likely to be filled to the brim.

Compartment

(1/9)

This little laptop “compartment” is designed very well, and the thinking here is that you can easily slide your laptop out when you go through security. All you need to do is slide the laptop out and it will stay connected to your bag. Send it through the conveyor belt, pop the laptop back in, you’re good to go.

Strap

(1/7)

� Here, I've used a 16-inch Keystrap to attach the 3D Mesh Organizer into this pocket for security.� Tom Bihn seems to have added even more O-rings to the Synapse 25 than were found in previous products, which allows the user even more places to attach accessories.� And that's a good thing.

Comfort

(1/5)

One of my favorite things about using my Tom Bihn Synapse backpack is the feeling of quality. I can stuff the bag full of groceries , and I know the straps and handles won't break. One time, I got caught in the rain (the bag was soaked!) and it suffered no damage.

Commute

(1/4)

Not only was it easy to be able to find things when I needed them, but also had a much larger capacity than other bags with this level of organization. Post travel, it's also the perfect bag for my daily commute. Plenty of room for my tablet, documents, and other work items. Incredibly versatile, professional, stylish, and my new fav

Hiking

(1/2)

Okay, we bought this separate, doesn't come with the backpack, but you log this guy in here I have some. I have a little bit of scoliosis going on my back so for the aluminum plate to kind of bend towards the the way that my spine bends, okay, I felt like it was needed and it's been a lifesaver. This is a beautiful piece. It feels much better along my scapula and into my lower back with that aluminum shield there to kind of help out on long hikes where I'm just this thing's been a part of my body for hours and hours and hours, if not days on end there
