Size

Tom Bihn Synapse 25

(1/3)

First of all, it’s not as large as you’d imagine because of all the other pockets inside this pack. Remember that water bottle pocket? Yeah, if you’re utilizing that you will lose a ton of space in this main compartment—which is kind of a bummer.

Laptop

(1/2)

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..

Commute

Compartment

Tom Bihn Synapse 25

(1/1)

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

(1/1)

My only complaint is that I would love if it had a hip strap that effectively transferred weight for the days I really load it as the grocery store.
