  • 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.

        As posted in my instagram amazingly numerously times, the Tom Bihn Synapse 25L going strong for two years is my camera and everydaycarry comfortable bag of choice. As well my Medium cafe bag, yes yes why not.

    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.
