I love a good backpack. I purchased a Tom Bihn Synapse a few years ago as my every day bag/carryon when we travel. For the most part I like it. But one major issue I have is it didn’t zip all the way down, so the main compartment was hard to open.

Looks like I should’ve waited a little longer. Now they’re selling the Synik 30 which is basically the same bag as the Synapse, but zips all the way open. Dang.

Not a huge deal now that I’m working from home 100%. I have been using an old messenger bag that is slightly smaller when I do go to the office. Certainly not worth spending another $300, unless I could trade-in or sell the Synapse…hmmm.
