  • Jonas Hanna

    I agree with Chase about these looking better than the originals even though it still looks like a turtle shell to me. Everyone that has one raves about what a joy it is to use though.

  • Mike Spadafora

    This or the GoRuck Gr1 for all around use?

    • TeamCarryology

      Oh, good question. Both are great brands with great warranties.

      If you’re going to put it through serious abuse – GR1. If you’re looking for a rugged tactical vibe (that might draw you to military types when in transit) – GR1. If you dig pouches over built-in organization – GR1.

      On the other hand: if you’re more into the gentle heritage / outdoor vibe – Synapse. If you dig pocketing – Synapse. If you’re looking for slightly better comfort – Synapse.

    Man this bag is UGLY – like every tom bihn bag in history. The photo of the dude wearing the bag with a badly clashing green jacket says it all.

    Got no style or partially sighted? Get Tom Bihn.

    This or the Alpha One Niner Evade?

    • TeamCarryology

      Hey @disqus_MhxzokJ0bP:disqus, if you’re into the EDC movement and carry lots of small EDC tools and dig a tactical vibe then the Evade, for sure.
